Levski – Arda 2:0 in an efbet League match

Levski’s team achieved a fifth consecutive victory in the Bulgarian championship. The “Blues” continue with the faultless series on their home field, as tonight they beat a traditionally uncomfortable opponent in the face of Arda (Kardjali) 2:0.

The selection of Stanimir Stoilov neutralized the club, which left with three points from “Gerena” in its last two visits, with goals from Andrian Kraev and Marin Petkov, who appeared as a reserve in the second half.

Although with the fewest matches played, Levski is in the sixth position with 15 points. Arda is just below the metropolitan grand also with such an asset.


Levski – Arda 2:0 (Development of the meeting by minutes)

Fifth win in a row for the “blues”

As befits Levski’s last home matches, Stanimir Stoilov’s selection again demonstrated direct and offensive football. Arda’s well-arranged tactical team could have been broken in the fourth minute when Welton crossed neatly for Iliyan Stefanov. The striker of the “blues” played with a header, but did not find the target.

The final defender of Levski – Tsunami, was overestimated in the sixth minute, when he tried a bomb shot from a foul. The ball went very high over Anatoly Gospodinov’s crossbar.

Until the 20th minute, Levski was mostly looking for a way to checkmate their opponent through crosses from the wings. They were the main priority for defenders Patrick-Gabriel Galchev and Tsunami. However, none of them ever turned into a real danger for the Kardzhalian door.

Levski scored the opening goal thanks to a perfect static position in the 20th minute. Filip Krastev crossed to the far post from a corner, where Andi Kraev got away from his personal guard Alex Petkov and headed Gospodinov for 1:0. In this way, the midfielder scored in his team’s second consecutive match, after doing the same against Botev (Vratsa). In total, he had so many goals for the entire 2021/22 season.

In the 27th minute, Ivelin Popov himself decided to finish the counterattack for Levski, after breaking through the center and sending a shot from the edge of the penalty area, which was blocked by an Arda defender. In the subsequent performance, the ball reached Tsunami a little happily, who, surprised by what was happening, made a strange shot that went close to the goal.

The Bulgarian Cup holders could have doubled their lead in the 40th minute. After a “quiet” half, Welton reminded himself with a good break, which ended with the necessary classy cross for Iliyan Stefanov. Nani headed in from close range but was respected by Anatoly Gospodinov’s great reflex.

The guard of Arda continued to perform at a level, literally in the next attack he intervened decisively and with a heavy shot by the mentioned Welton a little while ago.

Arda started the second half ambitiously, as the first position was in the possession of the guests. Tonislav Yordanov was already aiming his goal, but Noah Sonko Sundberg’s determined split split him to send a shot towards Plamen Andreev’s goal.

The experienced Milen Zhelev from Arda took advantage of an empty space in the 66th minute and drifted down the wing. What followed was a technical lie by Tsunami and a shot that had no power, falling straight into the hands of the confident Andreev.

Out of nowhere, Levski could get themselves into huge trouble with the arrival of the 79th minute. Noah Sonko Sundberg, as the last defender, acted recklessly against Arda’s substitute Lasana Ndiaye. At one point, the African went to the goal of Plamen Andreev, and only the expert help from Kelian van der Kaap saved the centenarians from some very difficult moments.

The other side of the pitch was also interesting. Bilal Bari “respected” the inclusion of Tsunami, and the Brazilian bet on a heavy diagonal shot, which was knocked out by Gospodinov in the corner.

A kick from the “blue” half turned into a wonderful lead pass for Bilal Bari. All this surprised Milen Stoev and the Moroccan did not waste any time with the shot. His spotter failed and the ball went harmlessly clear of the Kardzhalian net.

The young striker of Levski – Marin Petkov answered in the best way why he received a call-up today for the national team of Bulgaria. This happened with a decisive goal in the Arda net for 2:0. Shortly before the final whistle, the centenarians sealed their fifth consecutive victory after an excellent counter-attack. Bilal Bari saw the uncovered Petkov, who was left alone against Gospodinov and made no mistake to the delight of the “Gerena” audience.

In the next round, Levski has a metropolitan derby with Lokomotiv (Sofia). Arda will try to get back to winning ways against Pirin.
