Football: Beroe - Favorite of Bookmakers in the Derby with Slavia
The football surprise of last season Slavia will meet one of the most progressive teams in the national championship - Beroe in a closing match of the 5th round of the Bulgarian efbet League. At this stage, the oldest team in Sofia totally disappoints, recording only one point in the first four matches. The point came in the first round, when the boys of Zlatomir Zagorcic who was subsequently fired, finished in a draw against Cherno More. However, three lost matches followed against the strong teams of Lokomotiv (Plovdiv), Ludogorets and CSKA, and after that Slavia dropped out of the Europa League qualifiers, against the modest Albanian Kukesi.
Beroe is on the exact opposite wave. Stara Zagora’s team is the most productive team in the championship. The "Greens" have scored 11 times, as 6 goals came in the last round, when Botev (Vratsa) was brutally defeated. Dimitar Dimitrov's boys are solid in defense as well, recording three dry nets - against Levski, CSKA 1948 and Botev (Vratsa). However, Botev (Plovdiv) scored three goals in the spectacular 3: 3 game.
Last season Beroe won its first home game against this opponent with 2: 0, and only a month later, it managed to take the match in Sofia with an impressive 4: 2. Slavia won the match from the playoff phase of the championship with 2: 1 and this became Slavia's first victory over Beroe in the last 8 matches and the only one in their last 11 matches of the efbet League.
In the summer, Slavia parted ways with several key players and a drop in their game is quite reasonable and expected. Filip Krastev left Ovcha Kupel (Sold in Belgium, but will finish the calendar year in the ranks of Slavia) and Georgi Yomov went to one of Slavia’s main competitors – CSKA. An outgoing transfer of captain Yannis Karabelov is also expected. There is also a strong interest in the young goalkeeper Stergiakis.
Beroe enters as a total favorite according to bookmakers. Palmsbet offers odds of 1.85 for the Greens to win. There is certainly a reason to look for an improved bet. Beroe is in excellent shape, but the effect of the new coach of Slavia can lead to a surprise. Beroe is one of the teams that relies on an attacking philosophy, which would leave enough empty space for the fast attacking players of Slavia. Our advice is not to bet on a hard sign, but to look for something more logical.
But what would this be? Our suggestion is that both teams score a goal. Winbet is proposing an odd of 1.87 for this to happen. It would be quite logical to look for a bet for over 2.5 goals in the match. It is available at 1.94. We have already talked about Beroe's excellent attack. We should mention that during the break, Beroe scored 6 goals in the control match against Chernomorets (Burgas). This means that in the last 3 matches, Dimitar Dimitrov's boys have scored 15 goals. Slavia has only one goal for the new season, but the players of the "whites" will be extremely motivated to prove themselves to the new coach, and they have to make thier loyal supporters happy.
