Ludogorets vs Espanyol Preview
Espanyol have struggled with a busy schedule early in the campaign and sit in La Liga relegation zone with just five points to their name after nine outings, hoping for a pick-me-up as they travel to Razgrad for their Europa League clash at Ludogorets on Thursday evening.
RCDE have bagged four points in two Group H outings and sit just two behind the pace-setters, surely hoping to jump them with an upset at Ludogorets Arena. However, a 0-2 win at CSKA Moscow in early October will hardly feel like a confidence booster after losses to Mallorca (2-0) and Villarreal (0-1) in two outings since.
Ludogorets have been very confident and after edging past Maribor (2-2 on aggregate) in Europa League Play-offs, they managed to show off their dominant domestic form in Europa League too – connecting a nine-match winning streak since early September and enjoying rock-solid defensive displays along the way.
Eagles outclassed Ferencvaros (0-3) earlier this month and rather narrow wins over Levski Sofia (2-0) and Botev Plovdiv (0-1) since, which should have Stanislav Genchev’s men just as motivated to keep it up now. They will want to capitalize on the rivals’ woes too and we do see them doing just that.
However, we feel the visitors will now be able to prove themselves a very tough nut to crack and we’ll stick our necks out for them to snatch a point in a Draw priced at 5/2 with bet365, which feels like a lively longshot at this point.
Indeed, we’ve seen both sides proving themselves very tough to break down, which has us hoping for a tough deadlock to break on the day too. We’ll thus also back a low-scoring contest and go for Under 2.5 Goals FT at 10/11 with Paddy Power.
