Ludogorets performed as expected and reached the UEFA Europa League playoffs after defeating 4:0 TNS.
Ludogorets had their first chance in the 7th minute when Lukoki passed to Badji, but the midfielder sent the ball just outside the woodwork. Swierczok also missed innthe 21st minute despite his good position.
The first goal was scored in the 36th minute by Swierczok who scored from the penalty zone. Ludogorets scored another goal in the 42nd minute after Lukoki got in control of the ball and scored from his position next to the penalty point.
Wanderson missed twice after the half time, and the second situation that happened in the 69th minute was particularly good. He tried to score once again after that but a defender blocked his attempt. Wanderson was able to get in control of the ball in the 77th minute and it eventually reached Swierczok who scored with his head. Biton shaped the final 0:4 score in the added time. This is how Ludogorets qualified for the playoffs. They will meet Maribor in the next round;
