Bulgaria: Bulgarian Champion Ludogorets Wins but Was Eliminated from CL video caption

Ludogorets was very close to the Champions League groups despite the 0:2 defeat in the first leg.

The Bulgarian champion beat Swedish Malmö 2:1 in the return leg of the playoffs of the most prestigious club tournament, but was eliminated with total results of 2:3 after the 0: 2 defeat a week ago in Sweden.

Today the "Eagles" showed a far better play compared to the first match and took the lead in the 10th minute through Anton Nedyalkov.

In the 42nd minute, Birmančević equalized with a lucky goal from a foul, as the ball bounced from the head of Plastun and flew into the net of Kahlina.

Ludogorets did not give up and after the break imposed total dominance.

This gave the result in the 60th minute, when Pieros Sotiriou scored a penalty.

After that, the match continued almost entirely inside and around the penalty area of ​​the visitors, but in the end the pressure did not lead to the much-needed third goal to put the clash in overtime.
