20 April 2024

Ludogorets achieved its 13th consecutive win since the beginning of the season, beating Hebar 3:0 in Pazardzhik. Georgi Dermendzhiev's players are only 3 points away from the 13th title in a row, as their difference in front of the second Cherno more is 13 points. There are 5 rounds left until the end of the season. Over everyone in Pazardzhik was Bernard Tekpetey, who scored 2 goals, while Rwan added one. He was forced off the field at the very end of the match. Georgi Dermendzhiev released from the first minute Ivaylo Chochev, who until now had more often entered from the bench, as well as Aslack Von Witry, who was treating an injury in recent weeks.

The match started with a bang for Ludogorets, with the visitors taking the lead in the 7th minute. Then Aslack Von Witry excellently led Kwadwo Duah, who continued to Bernard Tekpetey and he made no mistake in an empty net - 1:0 for the champions. The hit was considered for an offside, but there was none. In the 19th minute, the people of Razgrad took a 2:0 lead. Hebar defender Joao Cesko didn't do well after a long pass and the ball fell to the feet of Bernard Tekpetey. The Ghanaian with a shot between the legs, left no chance for Petar Deberliev - 2:0!

Ten minutes before the end of the first half, Bernard Tekpetey was close to a hat-trick, shooting with his left foot, but this time Deberliev saved. The goalkeeper also dealt with a shot by Kwadwo Duah after a quick counterattack in the continuation of the first half. The hosts came to only one more serious situation in front of the goal of the people of Razgrad, but Sergio Padt saved a shot by Georgi Valchev.

It is curious that the Ghanaian winger of Ludogorets had a slight injury and even sat on the ground at one point. Nevertheless, he continued the meeting with the desire to help his team and reach a hat-trick.

Things didn't change much in the second half, with the visitors again holding the ball, but Hebar defenders did their job well and didn't give them any open spaces. However, in the 58th minute, Marc-Emilio Papazov sent a good shot to Sergio Padt, who did not have good visibility, but saved. Ludogorets responded with a spectacular pass to Rwan. He was brought behind the defense by Jakub Piotrowski, Deberliev feinted and hit the post in the empty net. The sideline referee raised an offside, but the situation was very thin and if a goal had been scored, VAR would have intervened for sure.

In the 68th minute, Ruwan again escaped from the defense, but was unable to overcome Deberliev, who was alone against him. Even if he had scored, it would have been disallowed for offside. In the 78th minute, there was nothing to stop Rwan. He received a wonderful pass from Aslack Von Witry, controlled it and easily scored his 11th goal of the season to make it 3-0. By the end of the match, the home team tried to score an honorable goal, but shots by Arhan Isuf, Georgi Valchev, Sheikh Diamanka and Atanas Kabov did not find the target.
