Bulgaria’s Ludogorets to Chase Miracle in Valencia
The second leg of the Europa League 1/8 final between Valencia and Ludogorets Razgrad will be played Thursday night in Spain.
The Bulgarian champions will need to make a miracle happen if they are to go through, after losing the first leg 0:3 in Sofia. Their task seems even more difficult if one looks at history. In 18 European tournament matches so far, a Bulgarian team has never won in Spain.
Ludogorets' coach Stoycho Stoev was calm ahead of the match, commenting that all he expects is to see his players go out and give their best.
Strong support is expected from the crowd, where over 2,000 Bulgarian expats will be cheering the country's champions.
The match at the Mestalla Stadium in Valencia kicks off at 8 pm Bulgarian time.
