Ludogorets won 2:1 against the Swiss champion Young Boys in the last trial game for the Bulgarian team in Austria. ‘The Eagles’ took the lead when Misidjan scored in the 11th minute, but Oaro made the score even in the 34th minute. Misidjan scored again in the 53rd minute.

The team from Razgrad was able to score a goal very soon after the start of the game after a fast attack. The ball was in Cicinho, Keseru and Wanderson’s possession, and he was able to pass to Misidjan who was next to the penalty zone and kicked the ball into the far gate corner, leaving no chance for the keeper to save.

Ludogorets was close to a second goal in the 29th minute when Keseru handled the ball well and passed to Wanderson. The Brazilian player kicked the ball from approximately 6-7 meters, but the ball hit the woodwork.

Five minutes later the Swiss team made the score even when Oaro scored. The ex-PSG and Bordeaux player jumped higher than everyone after a corner shot and scored with his head for 1:1.

Misidjan sent the ball towards the penalty zone in the 44th minute and Young Boys’ defense stopped it, but then Campanharo got in control of it and tried to score, but the keeper saved.

The second half was much like the first one and it featured a lot of action. Ludogorets scored after Marcelinho passed to Misidjan who was alone against the keeper. The defender was able to send the ball between the keeper’s feet and scored his second goal in the game.

Ludogorets lost a player a couple of minutes later when Moti received a red card due to a penalty in front of the penalty zone. Despite this, Wanderson had the chance to score in the 58th minute after he made an attack on his own, but his attempt was saved by the Swiss keeper.

Keseru was really close to a goal in the 64th minute when he kicked the ball from a few meters, but the keeper showed a good instinct and saved. Campanharo sent the ball from twenty meters just a few seconds later, but the keeper intervened again.

The Swiss champion had two opportunities to score as well. The first one was blocked by Forster, and the second one was not good enough to end with a goal.
