Botev Plovdiv hosts Lokomotiv Plovdiv in a city derby, which is awaited with great interest. The match is from the 16th round of the efbet League and will be held today at 19:30 at the “Hristo Botev” stadium. The clash will be broadcast live on DIEMA SPORT, and on Gong.bg we will follow the most interesting of the match live.
The “Canaries” enter the match in excellent form. Dusan Kerkez’s alumni are on a two-match winning streak in which they have scored 11 goals. The team is in 11th position and seems to have put the unconvincing start of the season behind them. A possible success today will bring the Canaries even closer to the teams in the middle of the table.
The visitors from Lokomotiv are third in the provisional ranking. They got off to a flying start in the Championship and were leaders in the table for a long time, but they have gone on a bad run and are winless in their last five league matches. The Smurfs play better away games, with 4 wins and 3 draws away from Louth so far.
The only injured in the ranks of the hosts is Mohamed Brahimi. The coach of the “black and white” Alexander Tomas will not be able to count on the injured Kaloyan Kostov, Leo Sena and the suspended Angel Lyaskov and Evandro.
The derby is number 118 and returns to the “College” after many years. It is expected to be a real football celebration in the stands, as Canaries fans bought the tickets.
The main referee of the match is Georgi Kabakov.
