This match will be for the Bulgarian Football Cup and meet Arda Kardzhali and Slavia Sofia in the semifinals this Tuesday, as the two teams reached this point after eliminating CSKA 1948 and Levski Sofia in the quarter-finals.
Arda performs very well not only for the Cup of Bulgaria but also in the championship. The team is in the first 6, being 5 points behind the second and third Lokomotiv Plovdiv and CSKA Sofia, which have 43 points each. After 22 matches in the Professional League, Arda has 38 points and recorded victories against teams such as Beroe Stara Zagora, Cherno More Varna, Levski Sofia, and others. Let’s not forget the draw with the leader Ludogorets, so here Arda comes out as the favorite for this match and it is quite possible to leave with a victory, given the form of the team and the good results, as a whole during the season.
Slavia is in 12th place in the standings of the Professional League with 19 points from 22 games, as the team is in the relegation zone and is trying to climb higher in the standings. Currently, the difference with Botev Plovdiv, who are above the line is 2 points and have all the chances to save in a better performance in the remaining matches. Slavia will play for the cup, but at the same time the team is more or less distracted and will fight on two fronts – the Cup and the Championship, so here, in my opinion, Arda has a better chance to win this match, as well as the home factor according to me will play a role in the final result.
Prediction – home win with odd 1.72 from 22bet
