Ludogorets beat Anderlecht 1:0, missed a bigger win

17 February 2023

Ludogorets became the first Bulgarian team to defeat the Belgian giant Anderlecht - 1:0 in the first match of the Conference League playoffs. The second game is in a week in Brussels.

Ante Simundza's side started strongly with Thiago twice making the visitors' defense difficult but offside was stated for both occasions. In the 8th minute there was nothing to save Anderlecht. Kiril Despodov crossed wonderfully with his left foot to Thiago and he opened the score -1:0 with a header.

After half an hour of play, Verschaeren threatened the goal of Ludogorets, but the ball went out. This was followed by an excellent pass by Igor Thiago to Tekpetey, who did not hit the net. Anderlecht responded immediately, but Arnstad did not take advantage of the good position he had. The hosts responded through Tekpetey, who did not threaten Ferbruggen. At the end of the first half, Padt saved a Verschaeren shot. Then the frame helped Ludogorets after a shot by Dreyer.

In the 64th minute Arnstad shot, but over the goal. In the 67th minute Despdoov was brought behind the defense of the visitors, but failed to score a goal. An offside was also set up, but there was none. 5 minutes before the end, Sergio Padt made a great save against Benito Taman, who was left alone against him.
