After a little more than a quarter of an hour of play, Georgi Alexandrov stopped Victor Genev in the penalty area of the “boyars” and the head referee Stanimir Trenchev awarded a penalty after consulting the video assistant referee. Toni Tasev scored from the penalty kick, scoring his third goal of the campaign so far.
In the 25th minute, Emil Stoev took the ball and found Galin Ivanov on the edge of the penalty area, the captain of the “Whites” shot, but the ball hit the crossbar.
Six minutes later, Erol Dost shot from the air, but failed to find the outline of Eter’s goal.
Four minutes before the break, Usama Alu, who entered as a reserve, was inaccurate when trying to make it difficult for Svetoslav Vutsov.
In the 54th minute, Kristian Stoyanov sent a diagonal pass to Ertan Tombak, who made a beautiful shot from the air, but the guard Martin Velichkov cleared. Three minutes later, Galin Ivanov shot technically from the edge of the penalty area, and Velichkov was careful and saved his goal from a second shot.
Pressure followed for Slavia, but Ivan Minchev and Tasev could not increase the lead for the hosts. In the 71st minute, Galin Ivanov brought Tasev into the penalty area and he passed parallel to the goal line for Emil Stoev, but the ball was knocked out at the last moment by Krum Stoyanov.
In the 87th minute, Ventsislav Kerchev led Stoev into a shooting position in the penalty area, but the Slavia striker’s shot went wide of the goal.
