Ludogorets will play again in spring in Europe after defeating Nordsjaelland 1:0 in Razgrad. The only goal was scored by the usual suspect Jakub Piotrowski, who in the 79th minute scored with his left foot after a ricochet, and in this way they took sweet revenge on the Danish.

The medical staff of the Eagles also did the impossible to lift Aslack Von Witry and Bernard Tekpetey, who had injuries, to play in the match. As is known, Caio Vidal was suspended for the match and Anton Nedyalkov dropped out of the match due to a hernia operation. Vidal was replaced by the hero of the "Bulgarian Army" Spas Delev.

In the 4th minute, after a cross from a corner, Kwadwo Duah played a header, but inaccurately. The visitors responded with a shot by Schelderup, who did not trouble Sergio Padt. 20 minutes later, Pedro Naressi sent a curious shot with his left foot, but it also missed the target.

In the 25th minute, the crossbar stopped Ludogorets from scoring. After an excellent attack, Tekpetey was brought out on the right, he turned back to the onrushing Naressi. The Brazilian missed for Kwadwo Duah, who shot, but the ball hit the right post of goalkeeper Hansen.

The Eagles continued to press and in the 36th minute they created another danger. Tekpetey shot hard from the air, the Nordsjaelland keeper did not make a good save and the ball fell to Piotrowski. However, he shot from a small angle and failed to score.

Shortly after, the Danes created their first situation. Rasmussen shot from very close, but Sergio Padt made a great save to prevent a certain goal in his own goal.

In the closing minutes of the first half, the main midfielder of Ludogorets Claude Gonsalves suffered an injury and was replaced by the young Ivan Yordanov.

Dermendzhiev took Tekpetey off at the break, bringing on Rwan instead, with the home team looking for success with two strikers. At the beginning of the second half, it was the Brazilian who was brought behind the defense by Naressi, but he was unable to shoot well.

In the 51st minute, Sergio Padt shone with a double save after strikes from Hay and Schelderup. 12 minutes later, the Danes hit the post. Nygren headed, but Ludogorets was lucky in the situation. In the counter-attack, Rwan found himself in position, but Hansen saved his shot masterfully.

In the 73rd minute, Georgi Dermendzhiev released his third striker - Matias Tissera, in search of the so valuable goal.

Six minutes later Jakub Piotrowski scored! He shot from about 20 meters with his left foot, the ball ricocheted and ended up in Hansen's net - 1:0! Just seconds after that, Nordsjaelland could have equalized. Nygren shot powerfully onto the post and on the rebound his team-mate fired high over the goal.

In the 92nd minute, Sergio Padt expertly saved Nagalo's shot from about 25 meters. Shortly after, Piotrowski went on the attack and tried to score his second goal, but the goalkeeper of Nordsjaelland saved.
