The match went at the pace of the “blues”, who controlled its development for the entire 90 minutes and fully deserved the success. Only one mistake ten minutes before the end of regular time could have cost them the three points, but the people of Sofia managed to deal with this situation as well. The good news for the team’s fans was the appearance of Ivelin Popov as a starter, who stayed on the field until the 60th minute.

In this way, Levski, who recorded a fifth consecutive success in the championship and without conceding a goal, has already collected 15 points and climbed to the sixth position, while Arda remains in eighth place with the same asset. In the next round, the graduates of Stanimir Stoilov have a capital derby against Lokomotiv in “Nadezhda”, and those of Alexander Tunchev host Pirin Blagoevgrad, who recorded their first victory earlier in this round.


The hosts created the first scoring opportunity in the match in the fifth minute, when Ivelin Popov combined with Welton on the left flank, who crossed, and on the border of the goal area, Iliyan Stefanov played a header, but it went past the right post of the goalkeeper Anatoly Gospodinov. Two minutes later, Tsunami shot directly from a direct free kick at a serious distance from Gospodinov’s goal, but his shot was quite inaccurate.

In the 16th minute, Patrick-Gabriel Galchev set the ball on his left foot. A cross into the penalty area followed, where Popov attempted a difficult header that ended with a kick out.

However, Levski settled permanently in Arda’s half and managed to open the scoring with his first real goal situation. In the 20th minute, Filip Krastev crossed from a corner to the far post, where Alex Petkov missed Kraev, who headed Gospodinov’s header into the near corner, and he also failed to react in the best way and the ball hit his goal – 1:0.

The “Blues” wanted to quickly take a comfortable lead and eight minutes later Krastev crossed from a corner in the penalty area, where Tsunami managed to intercept with his right foot, but the ball went very close to Gospodinov’s left post.

Towards the end of the first half, Levski had a great situation to double the score. In the 41st minute, Welton received from Krastev on the right flank, then advanced and crossed excellently to the edge of the goalkeeper’s field, where Stefanov outran Petkov and fired a powerful header, but Anatoly Gospodinov responded with a brilliant intervention, who reacted and saved.

Two minutes later, the Brazilian was again at the center of events, after entering from the left flank inside, freed up space for a shot and shot strongly from a distance, but in the hands of the guard of the guests from Kardzhali.

At the beginning of the second half, there were no interesting situations in front of both goals, as the guests tried to be the more active team, but without a particular result.

In the 55th minute, Svetoslav Kovachev shot hard from mid-range, but high over Plamen Andreev’s goal.

The first more dangerous situation of the second half came in the 67th minute when Milen Zhelev got on the right flank, went past Tsunami and shot from the edge of the penalty area, but Andreev was in the right place and caught.

In the 79th minute, Arda could literally come out of nowhere. Sonko Sundberg made a rather light mistake by giving the ball to Lasana N’Diaye. The defender made a mistake in the center, and the attacker of the guests advanced to the penalty area alone against Andreev, but only the good intervention and securing of Kilian van der Kaap saved the “blues” in the situation.

In the counterattack, Georgi Milanov kept well in front of the arc in front of the penalty area and combined with Tsunami from the left, who entered the penalty area and shot into the near corner, but Gospodinov kicked into the corner.

Levski secured the three points in the 87th minute when he scored a second goal. Van der Kaap found Bilal Bari on the left in Arda’s half, and the Moroccan brought a great pass to Petkov, who was forgotten and burst into the penalty area at speed and sent the ball into Gospodinov’s goal with a left-footed kick – 2:0.

Until the end, the people of Sofia kept their lead and recorded a fifth consecutive victory in the championship.
