Ludogorets quickly regained the top spot in the First League after achieving a 2:0 win against CSKA 1948. Aslack Von Witry and Jakub Piotrowski were accurate for the Eagles, and Todor Nedelev also played a very strong game for the team, scoring an assist for another hit by the Pole. Thus, the Greens equalled the first place with Cherno more with 51 points, but they have better indicators than Varna team in direct matches, while CSKA is third with 3 points behind.

The coach of the champions Georgi Dermendzhiev bet from the first minute on Todor Nedelev. As is known, the playmaker, who scored two goals at CSKA 1948 for the Bulgarian Cup, left the match injured a few days ago.

The match started in a standard way - with more attacks on the guests' goal, but there were no real scoring chances. In the 20th minute, after a learned position, Verdon brought down for Piotrowski, whose header did not find the target. In the 30th minute, the Eagles made a good attack, but it did not end properly, with an inaccurate shot by Aslack Von Witry. Ludogorets created another strong attack, which ended with another inaccurate shot, in the case of Tekpetey.

In the 33rd minute, Pedro Naressi made a huge mistake, gifting the ball to Birsent Karagaren. The ball went through Vutov and Tallis before reaching Pedrinho, who headed the post. The ball bounced back to the onrushing Umarbaev, who shot but Padt saved. The ball found its way to the Tajik again, but this time he fired high over the goal. The champions responded quickly after Todor Nedelev cut into the CSKA 1948 penalty area and found Rwan, whose shot was wide of the mark.

Ludogorets took the lead in the 42nd minute. Aslack Von Witry turned left to Rwan, he feinted Ryan Bidunga and crossed to the onrushing Norwegian, who with his header left goalkeeper Petar Marinov no chance - 1:0 for the Eagles.

The hosts could score a second goal in the first minute of the second half. Tekpetey made an excellent pass to Jakub Piotrowski, who outran the CSKA 1948 guard and would, miraculously, over the goal. Then Rick made one of his traditional breakthroughs and shot, this time the keeper saved. At the ensuing corner the intrigue in the match almost ended. Todor Nedelev made a wonderful cross to Jakub Piotrowski, who with his header left no chance for Marinov - 2:0.

Very quickly after that, Ludogorets could reach a third goal. After another cross from a corner by Nedelev, Piotrowski again played with a header, continuing for Rwan. However, the Brazilian did not score in the completely empty net.

Goalkeeper Petar Marinov denied Rick a goal in the 85th minute. Shortly after, Caio Vidal shot very technically but missed the target. Thus, the meeting ended without new goals and Ludogorets won 2:0.
