Bitesize Prediction: Ludogorets vs Sutjeska – 05/07/22

Competition: Champions League qualifier

Market: Ludogorets win to nil

Odds: 7/10 @ 888sport

Looking to pick up a first-leg advantage on Tuesday night, Ludogorets will welcome Montenegro-based side Sutjeska to the Huvepharma Arena.

Starting with the hosts, after enjoying another domestic romp last season, the Bulgarian heavyweights will once again be tipped as a standout pick to extend on their Champions League adventure. Managing to pick up some perfect momentum last week as they cruised their way to a 3-0 romp against Nurnberg in a friendly showdown, Head Coach Ante Šimundža saw his side sign off last season’s First Division run with a real flurry. Mustering a staggering 37 points from their final 13 top-flight matchups, the Greens also hold an eye-catching European record at the Huvepharma Arena. On a run that is highlighted by a thrilling late winner against Olympiakos last year, it should be highlighted that Ludogorets have won each of their final four Champions League showdowns in front of their own supporters.

As for the visitors, while Sutjeska might have claimed their fifth domestic crown from over the past decade last season, the Montenegro champions really limped their way over the finish line. Including a 2-1 defeat against Buducnost back in May as they missed out on lifting the Montenegrin Cup, Head Coach Milija Savović saw his side fail to win any of their final six domestic matchups. Likewise, knowing that they will face a real task when they make the trip to Bulgaria on Tuesday night, the Plavi have also failed to find any stability over the summer. Last seen getting hit with a 1-0 loss against Serbian side FK Mladost, the midweek guests have now recorded just a single victory from any of their last eight contests across all formats continuing on from last season.
