1st Leg in a Nutshell
Ludogorets managed to beat 1-0 Shakhtyor with a goal scored in the injury time. The Bulgarian champions left no doubt that they were far the better team and totally deserved the win. Shakhtyor, on the other side, played roughly with many reckless tackless and fouls and it was obvious that they were aiming to reach 0-0.
The Decisive Match
It is curious to see two strong teams facing each other in so early stage of the Champions League. However, one of the team will be eliminated. Considering that Ludogorets created plenty of opportunities in the 1st leg and the fact that the 2nd leg will be played on a neutral venue, the Bulgarian side definitely has an advantage. We are expecting a win for Ludogorets as Shakhtyor will be obliged to attack and will leave more open spaces to the lethal attackers of the formal guests.
