The U16 teams performed great and the match was intense. Gospodinov’s boys scored in the 29th minute when Yotov was accurate. This was the only goal during the first half. The Macedonian team made the score even in the 71st minute from the penalty point. Ludogorets did not give up and two minutes before the end Spasov scored the winning goal. Two Akademija Pandev players received red cards in this game, but due to the initial agreement between the teams they were replaced by another couple of players.

Statev scored in the 14th minute, and nine minutes later Nedelchev added a second goal. “The Eagles” continued their domination on the field and Loskov score in the 31st minute, making the score a classic 3:0. The boys from Razgrad had a number of missed situations before the half time.
