Our prediction for this Champions League match:
Arsenal look unstoppable at the moment. The Gunners recorded a 3-2 win over Swansea City at the weekend, with the team extending their winning run in the Premier League to six matches. Arsene Wenger’s men have been producing outstanding performances of late and trio Walcott – Ozil – Sanchez and we predict that they will prove a handful for Ludogorets defenders in Wednesday’s Champions League game at Emirates Stadium. The Premier League team aim to retain top position in Group A and the hosts are likely to go all guns blazing at the Bulgarian outfit in their third group game. Ludogorets do not seem to be competitive at this level and the Bulgarians are unlikely to spoil Arsenal’s party in London on Wednesday evening. Theo Walcott scored a brace in the 3-2 win over Swansea City and all eyes will be on the in-form winger when the two teams take on each other at Emirates Stadium.
Highlighted Player (Petr Cech):
Petr Cech is a veteran goalkeeper who plays for Premier League side Arsenal. The experienced goalkeeper used to play for Arsenal’s fierce rivals Chelsea in the past and many people were shocked when he signed a four-year contract with the Emirates Stadium outfit on 29 June, 2015.
Petr Cech was always struggling with injuries, but one definitely marked his career. During the clash between Reading and Chelsea the Czech goalkeeper collided with Stephen Hunt and, as a result, he suffered a skull fracture.
This is the reason he has been forced to wear a protective headgear ever since. Petr Cech won four Premier League trophies with Chelsea, while lifting four FA Cup titles. However, in 2012 Cech won the Champions League trophy with the Blues and that is considered the highlight of his career. Petr is married to Martina Dolejsova (now Cechova) and they have a son Darmian and a daughter Adela.
Highlighted Team (Ludogorets):
Bulgarian football club PFC Ludogorets Razgrad, commonly referred to as Eagles, compete at the Ludogorets Arena with the capacity of 8,000. PFC Ludogorets Razgrad are owned by Kiril Domuschiev, who made it his personal goal to propel the club to domestic and international success and to hold up the Bulgarian flag high with nation’s biggest clubs Levski and CSKA going through turbulent times.
Having seen their stock rise astronomically since 2010, PFK Ludogorets Razgrad have become the first Bulgarian club to be features in the UEFA Champions League group stage twice. Previously, their maiden participation happened in 2014-15 season when the Bulgarian club made headlines due to notable results against FC Basel and Liverpool.
Their success on domestic scene has been equally impressive as PFC Ludogorets Razgrad remain the second team in the world to win a treble after being promoted from the second to the first league. Main force of the Bulgarian club are the Brazilian players, currently eight of them in the squad many of whom hold the Bulgarian citizenship.
