Our prediction for this Europa League match:
Ludogorets and Crvena zvezda take on each other at Huvepharma Arena in the Europa League round 2. Crvena zvezda kicked off their campaign in style, with the team beating Sporting Braga in Belgrade, but the Serbian champions have some selection worries ahead of the trip to Bulgaria. Both attackers Ben and Pavkov are sidelined with injuries, while first-choice goalkeeper Milan Borjan, defenders Aleksandar Dragovic and Milos Degenek, and key player Aleksandar Katai have all been tested positive for coronavirus.
The Bulgarian outfit, on the other hand, will be without Brazil international Wanderson, who suffered a serious injury, while both Despodov and Nedyalkov are rated doubtful for the game. Anyhow, a close encounter is on the cards, and we are tempted to put our money on draw. It has to be noted that the two teams met in the Champions League qualifiers back in 2016 when Ludogorets eliminated Crvena zvezda after extra-time.
