Four reasons Ludogorets could cause an upset vs. Arsenal
The vast majority of pundits and fans alike are expecting Arsenal to mathematically confirm their place in the Champions League’s Round of 16 this evening, for a 17th year in a row with a win over European minnows Ludogorets Razgrad.
That’s admittedly dependent on PSG beating FC Basel, meaning neither the English nor the French giants can be caught on ten points apiece. But the Gunners are amid a strong run of form, battering Sunderland 4-1 last weekend, and possess more than enough talent to dispense of the Bulgarian champions with relative ease.
They’ve already recorded a resounding victory over Ludogorets, claiming a 6-0 win at the Emirates Stadium a fortnight ago, and will look to maintain – or perhaps even improve upon – that winning margin this evening.
Yet, Ludogorets aren’t the pushovers the majority of the British media are making them out to be. In fact, they’re a decent side with nothing to lose and an incredibly vocal fanbase.
Anything could happen in the 43,230 capacity Vasil Levski National Stadium this evening and we at FootballFanCast are tipping the Bulgarians to pull off the unlikeliest of upsets. Here’s why.
