Ludogorets U19 lost 0:1 to Concordia in their first trial game this semi-season. The game took place at the ‘Eagles’ Nest’ club base. Todor Zhivondov replaced ten of the players during the half time in order to give everyone a chance to shine.
Ludogorets had supremacy during most of the time but they did not manage to score. Ruskov hit the gate beam once and Zhekov, Karaangelov, Kanchev and Babaliev all missed as well. The players were not focused enough and they allowed a goal in the 80th minute.
‘I am pleased with what I saw in this first game. We played good and the only negative part is the score. We created many situations but we missed them, while the guest team managed to turn one of their few goal situations into an actual goal’, said Zhivondov.
Ludogorets U19 team composition: Rusanov, Ganchev, Ruskov, Zhekov, Karaangelov, Georgiev, Ganchev, Minkov (team captain), Babaliev, Yanakiev, Naidenov (Kolev, Slavchev, Markov, Tomov, Hyusein, Valchev, Kanchev, Stoyanov, Simeonov, Petkov).
