The Ludogorets coach Stoycho Stoev answered a few questions prior to the game against Levski:

- Mr. Stoev, what is the overall condition of the team prior to this game
- Everyone is in great shape. All the players are healthy and they follow the practice session plan. This is what’s important.

- What do you expect from the game on Saturday?
- It will be a tough game. Levski played really good the last two times and this means they will strive to win as much as we will.

- Will Wanderson’s absence affect the performance of the team? 
- There are more than enough players which could replace Wanderson so i think everything will be allright.

- Considering the results so far, Levski is an easy opponent – they lost both three games against Ludogorets.
- This is not the attitude we need because it is a wrong way of thinking. This means nothing and every game is different. We will not underestimate the competitor.

- Do you expect any surprises?
- There is hardly a Bulgarian team that could surprise the rest. What we will do is give our best instead of expecting surprises.

- Is this an important game in terms of winning the title?
- Every game is important and I cannot say anything in advance. What I hope is that we play good and we will definitely play with honor, too.

- After the previous game most specialist say that Ludogorets is almost certainly the champion again. 
- It is normal for them to assume such a thing and there are only a few games left until the end. However, I prefer not make assumptions like this one.
