Ludogorets is on top of the overall rating once again after defeating 4:1 Septemvri at ‘Vassil Levski’ stadium. Both teams experienced déjà vu because last year’s game between them on the same location ended with the exact same score.
Ludogorets’ head coach Antoni Zdravkov made four changes to the team composition compared to the game against AEK. Broun, Sasha, Goralski and Mahlangu were included in the initial composition this time. The guest team took over the control of the ball and Septemvri were able to create a counter-attack in the 7th minute. Gadi passed to Chandarov who was able to send a powerful shot toward Broun’s gate and scored. Ludogorets scored their first goal in the 23rd minute when Moti received the ball from Wanderson. However, the goal was cancelled due to an offside situation. Just five minutes later Moti kicked the ball from the corner and it went straight into Benga’s feet, but his attempt to score was not accurate. Keseru had a good chance to score after that but he was not able to attempt a goal. Ludogorets was close to making the score even in the 42nd minute when Keseru passed to Sasha and he returned it to Wanderson. The Brazilian player ended up sending the ball high above the gate.
Zdravkov made some important changes during the half time. He replaced Mahlangu and Goralski with Campanharo and Swierczok. Keseru sent the ball to the Polish player in the 46th minute and he scored his first goal in First League this season with ease after he outplayed Stoichkov. Marcelinho tried to score from 35 meters but missed the target. Four minutes later Ludogorets turned the tables after Natanael passed to Keseru who left no chance to the keeper. Wanderson passed to Keseru in the penalty zone. The scorer sent the ball in Septemvri’s net with his left foot. Wanderson scored the fourth goal for Ludogorets in the 89th minute. He received a good pass and scored by kicking the ball low. This was Ludogorets’ seventh win in a row this season.
