Ludogorets missed a game for the third time since the begging of their camp in Turkey. The team lost 0:1 to the Polish overall leader Lechia Gdansk.
The coach Antoni Zdravkov decided to let Paulo play. Natanael created a situation in the first minute by entering the penalty zone and sending the ball towards the gate and the keeper barely managed to intervene but saved anyway. Fourteen minutes later another Ludogorets attack followed and Marcelinho tried to score form about 15 meters. Lechia also created a situation 5 minutes after that. Paisao received the ball after Mladenovic kicked the ball from the center, after which the team captain outplayed Natanael but sent the ball over the crossbar. Bakalov got in possession of the ball in the 30th minute but the keeper saved again. Paulo immediately tried to score after that, but he sent the ball into the keeper’s body. The Polish team was close to scoring in the end of the first half, but Sobieh missed the chance he was given after Mak passed the ball.
Sobiech made things hard for Iliev in the 53rd minute after he sent the ball on a parabolic trajectory with his head and the keeper barely managed to save with his fingertips. Paisao tried to add to the situation but Natanael intervened. Paulo and Popa were both able to attempt a goal situation after the 60th minute but they had nobody to pass to. Zdravkov replaced most of the players ten minutes after that. Lechia scored in the 73rd minute. Zukowski received the ball from Mihalak and scored the goal. Wanderson tried to return a goal later but he sent the ball over the gate.
