The last coach who became a champion with Levski – Emil Velev – shared his opinion with “Mach Telegraf” about the upcoming meeting with FC CSKA 1948. He said that he expects a victory from the “blues”, but they should not depend only on Welton. who is suffering from an injury at the moment.
“I hope Levski beat FC CSKA 1948. I didn’t expect this 0-0 draw against Arda. I thought the Blues would win, but it didn’t work out. We’ve been saying for a long time that when Welton doesn’t play, he’s always missing, he doesn’t have a substitute , which for a team like Levski, is not good. You can’t rely on just one player. The team should have strengthened with one or two players for such cases. Right now we see that Welton is irreplaceable. This should not happen in a club like Levski. The bench is short, but that should not be an excuse. The goals of the team are always the championship title and winning the Tower of Bulgaria. This is it! Naturally, Levski has a chance to cling to the title fight. There are many more games until the end, and the gap to the top is not so big. I was surprised by Nikolay Kostov’s words that he was wrong to point to the title as his goal. For me, there is a lot of time and points to win. Levski has a quality and solid team, plays good football.For the moment we see a few games they can’t win.It’s not a good certificate for a team that wants to reach the first place. Let’s hope that we will break this unpleasant streak in Bistrica. It will be a very contested match against FC CSKA 1948. They are a nasty and uncomfortable opponent. They have a lot of players who have quality. I think there will be intrigue in this meeting. And they are fighting for the top spots, and this is a prerequisite for an intriguing match. Levski should not look at the results of other teams. The fact is that the “reds” also have two hiccups in a row, but the “blues” have to watch their own matches. There is tension with them too. Fingers crossed for Levski and hopefully they get the three points in this away game. We see that a weak CSKA is at the top of the standings. With equal points with the Black Sea and Loko Pd. It doesn’t matter how they won in Veliko Tarnovo! They got 3 points! And Levski failed to do it in Kardzhali! They had chances to score, but it didn’t happen. The fact is that the “blues” were better than Arda. It is no coincidence that possession is 70% to 30%. Welton is still not playing
scores a lot of goals, but creates scoring opportunities and constantly worries the opposition’s defenders. There should be no tendency for FC CSKA 1948 to beat us. In the first match of the season, they also beat us at “Gerana”. It won’t be normal for me,” commented Velev.
