Ludogorets’ coach Antoni Zdravkov said that the team must win in tomorrow’s game against AEK at all costs. He admitted the club has a slim chance of continuing ahead in UEFA Europa League but at least there is a chance.

‘We need to win because we are on our own stadium. The chances for us may be small but we will take them and we have to win this game’, said Zdravkov. ‘This way the group will still be interesting to observe. We made a few mistakes that stopped us from winning more points. The chance to continue ahead is not very good now. Maybe the other teams will make mistakes, too. I do not agree that Bayer Leverkusen is an ordinary team. We played good until now be we had no luck. Every team could suffer a mental breakdown at any given time which would mean that a different approach for the game would be needed. AEK is a classy team and the players are good. We should not miss any of the moments we would have tomorrow’, the coach added.

The team captain Svetoslav Dyakov is feeling optimistic.

‘Our team has enough experience. There are no easy games in Europa League. We are confident in our abilities and I think we have what it takes to win; said Dyakov. ‘Ludogorets is ready for tomorrow’s game. We always look forward such games. We are determined to win because we deserve a better rating. The games in the European tournament are different than those here. We hope we do not allow the mistakes we already made. AEK is a good team but we are better. I like them a lot because they want to be in control of the game, just like us. We will show that we are better’, Dyakov added.
