Arda - Botev Vrata

Asian Handicap
Pick: AH -0.75 Arda
Odds: 1.77
Stake: 1

Match date: 20/02/2021

Arda from Kardzhali and Botev from Vrata will meet today in the 18th round of the 1st Bulgarian football league at 11.30 CET.

Arda is the most pleasant surprise of the league this season, a small club that took fourth place in the first part of the Championship, and in 2021. started very good with a 2:0 victory away against Botev from Plovdiv. There is a great atmosphere in the club even before this match against Botev from Vrata, and coach Nikolay Kirov received an offer to sign a new contract. It will certainly be an additional motive for him to prepare his players to the maximum for this match, and there are no significant problems with line-up and missings. Two excellent strikers Kokonov and Juninho scored 11 goals and Arda has a very safe back line (14 goals conceded in 17 matches).

Botev extended his poor form from the end of last year to this one, and against Beroe suffered fifth defeat in a row and now is in 11th place out of 14 clubs, with only four points more than the last Etar.

For this match, coach Zdravkov will not be able to rely on the experienced Brazilian midfielder Tom, who also missed first official match this year against Beroe due to injury. Two more footballers were injured in Botev's camp. Defender Kostadin Nichev is recovering from a hip injury and although he is training, he will be able to join at full speed at the end of March at the earliest. Winger Julian Nenov (2 goals) will also be absent for at least another two weeks.

After the match with Beroe, several other players complained of various pains, so Zdravkov is in doubt which players send to the field today.

Arda is undefeated at home stadium this season, with 4 wins and 4 draws, while Botev as a guest has six defeats in eight league games and only one victory. Arda is definitely the favorite here, by many parameters a much better team than guests at this moment.

HALF WIN Score: 3:2 Profit: +0.38

    Lucky not to lose this bet. Quite scary as a supposedly easy match turned into a sticky one towards the end.
