Ludogorets form and stats

Ludogorets, who have the most scored goals (23) in Parva Liga, have collected 12 points from their Parva Liga home games so far after 4-0-0. After failing to beat CSKA 1948 Sofia here at Huvepharma Arena, Ludogorets has put together a very nice winning streak on their own turf with four wins in a row.

It's back home for Ludogorets, who return with a good feeling about themselves after beating Levski Sofia away with the result 4-2. Elvis Manu, Pieros Sotiriou, Dominik Yankov and Bernard Tekpetey found the net in that victory. A goal frenzy last time out for Ludogorets, with a total of 6 goals in the match against Levski Sofia. Fun stuff to watch!

Preceding that match was the home Europa League game against Crvena Zvezda that was lost 0-1.

It would be a shock if the hosts fail to win this game. Let's see how Ludogorets have performed as huge favourites like they are today: six games found in the database showing six Ludogorets wins, zero draws and zero defeats.

There's a new fixture coming up fairly quickly for Ludogorets, as the Europa League home game vs Sporting Braga is only four days away.

With more than three goals on average, the attacking play of Ludogorets is on fire here. A stunning 13 from 4 league matches. As for guarding their own goal, Ludogorets have only let in 1 goal at home.

Tsarsko selo form and stats

0-1-3 is the win-draw-loss statistic for Tsarsko selo, who have the fewest scored goals (4) in Parva Liga, in their Parva Liga matches away. With the Tsarsko losing streak of four defeats in a row, regardless of arena, optimism is low and sinking.

Tsarsko failed to get anything from their last game, a Parva Liga home match vs CSKA Sofia (placed 3rd) that ended with defeat 1-2. Tsarsko were so close to getting something from the game against CSKA Sofia, but ended up with egg all over their face after conceding the deciding goal three minutes into overtime.

It was a defeat before that one as the away game against CSKA 1948 Sofia wasn't a success with a 0-1 loss.

Tsarsko are huge outsiders in this game. Running a check in our games database we found seven matches where they were as big outsiders as an away team. Results were three wins, one draw and three defeats. Of the defeats, one game were lost by at least two goals margin.

Goals are few and far between in Tsarsko's away league games. Only 1 goal from 4 travels. As opposed to that, Tsarsko have seen the ball go into their own net 5 times on the road.

Head 2 Head

Head-2-head stats last five meetings: three - two - zero (Ludogorets wins - draws - Tsarsko selo wins). As for goals, one match ended with three or more goals (over 2,5), four had two or less.
