The hosts from the capital are pressed against the wall and the three points seem more than mandatory. “The Blues” have only one win in the last six matches, having collected as many as three defeats, and after the match with CSKA 1948, the fans at the stadium demanded the resignation of coach Nikolay Kostov.
The tension is also rising due to the scandals after the General Assembly of Levski, which was held on Friday. After his death, Nasko Sirakov and the “Blue Bulgaria” Trust exchanged sharp statements.
The visit of “Gerena” is one of the toughest tests in the entire history of Botev. The current form of the Botevists is almost excellent – in their last four official matches, the “yellow and black” have three wins and one hicks, which came in the city derby with Lokomotiv .
Dusan Kerkez has changed the look of the team and Plovdiv residents are not going out as doomed against one of their biggest rivals. The Hicks will be welcome for the people of Plovdiv, and the victory will bring them closer to the goal – 7th place.
The match between Levski and Botev will be led by Nikola Popov, with assistants Dimitar Rusev and Georgi Minev. Dragomir Draganov and Dimo Valchev will be responsible for the VAR system.
