Dinamo Zagreb Coach Stresses Importance of Beating Ludogorets
Croatian Dinamo Zagreb’s head coach Branko Ivankovic expressed his team’s desire to win Thursday’s Europa League match against Bulgarian champions Ludogorets Razgrad.
“Ludogorets are a well equipped side. They defeated Partizan and PSV Eindhoven, which means they are one of the favorites in the group. However, we must win 3 points from this match to keep our hopes of progressing”, said Ivankovic prior to his team’s departure for Sofia.
The manager reminded that his team has experience against their opponent, when they eliminated them from last year’s Champions League qualifiers.
Ludogorets are currently top of Group B, after defeating PSV in the first match. Dinamo lost their opener at home to Ukrainian Chernomorets Odessa and will be keen to bounce back.
The two teams meet at the Vasil Levski stadium in Sofia on Thursday at 10:05 PM local time.
