Ludogorets and Slavia scored zero goals in another game of the efbet League. The champions were the better team throughout the game. There were too many referee mistakes which deprived both teams from situations that could have resulted in a goal. The keeper of Slavia – Stergiakis, was given a red card for supposed foul play. This was a mistake and the second referee Milanov had something to do with it. An even more controversial situation happened in the 79th minute when Wanderson’s goal canceled due to an offside situation that never happened. The assistant referee Dzhuganski raised his flag only after the ball was already in the gate. This was an absurd situation because there was nobody near Wanderson when he scored.
This was not all that happened. The assistant referee Milanov stopped a few Ludogorets attacks because of disputable offside situations. Dzhuganski did the same in the second half and this really worked on the nerves of coaches and players. Goralski received a yellow card he did not deserve – he never touched another player in that situation.
Swierczok missed the best possible situation for Ludogorets in the end of the first half. He missed the chance to score in an empty gate after Lukoki passed him the ball. Slavia also had the chance to score in the 26th minute but Renan intervened in Gamakov’s attempt.
Ludogorets is now taking the second place in the overall rating. The team is one point short of the leader Levski.
