The 2017/2018 season was really successful for Ludogorets. The team performed great both in the domestic championship and in Europe. They left no doubt about their supremacy.
The adventure in Europe did not start as well as expected in the summer of 2017. Ludogorets defeated Zalgiris in the second preliminary round of the UEFA Champions League but they did not do the same against Hapoel Beer Sheva, despite the fact they were the better team. The total score after these games was 3:3 but with only one goal they allowed on their home field the tam had no trouble to continue their participation in the Europa League playoffs where they defeated Suduva.
Ludogorets showed they were consistent throughout the autumn season of 2017 despite they stood against teams such as Braga, Hoffenheim and Istanbul Basaksehir. The champions defeated 2:1 Hoffenheim in Razgrad and they did the same against Braga in Portugal, defeating them with a 2:0 score. This enable them to continue ahead and play against Milan.
Ludogorets was the overall domestic championship leader in the beginning of 2018. Despite the two lost games against Milan they did not back down and an impressive series of wins happened, including the 3:2 win against CSKA-Sofia and the 1:0 game against Levski in Sofia. The seventh title became a fact after the team defeated Vereya while the main competitor CSKA-Sofia achieved an even score against Botev in Plovdiv.
