CHERNO MORE V CSKA 1948
Cherno More Varna go into this fixture following a 1-1 First League tied result vs Lokomotiv Plovdiv.
Their latest results reveal that not much more can be done by the Cherno More Varna defence. Cherno More Varna have been mean at the back, with the total number of goals that have gone past their goalkeeper over the course of their previous six games standing at 2.
CSKA 1948 will go into this game after a 1-0 First League win versus Pirin in their most recent match.
The only player to score from CSKA 1948 was Ivaylo Chochev (45').
Nikolay Kirov's CSKA 1948 have converted 8 times throughout their most recent six matches. The aggregate of goals that they have conceded during that same period adds up to 8.
Coming into this fixture, CSKA 1948 are without an away win for the past 12 league games. A poor run.
Prediction: Both teams to score
ARDA V TSARSKO SELO
Arda Kardzhali will be wanting a better result here following a 4-1 First League losing effort in their last game against Ludogorets Razgrad.
In that match, Arda Kardzhali had 53% possession and 8 attempts at goal with 4 on target. The only player to score for Arda Kardzhali was Spas Delev (36'). On the other side, Ludogorets Razgrad had 10 shots at goal with 6 on target. Jordan Ikoko (8'), Pieros Sotiriou (32', 42') and Kiril Despodov (60') scored for Ludogorets Razgrad.
Arda Kardzhali have been finding it hard to keep clean sheets recently, but they have also found ways to score goals themselves. Looking at their last 6 games, Arda Kardzhali have been punished defensively in 5 of them while also getting on the scoresheet in 5 of those matches. Such a trend won’t necessarily be sustained into this game, of course.
After tasting defeat last time out to Levski Sofia in First League action, Tsarsko Selo and their travelling supporters will be hoping that they can get a better result in this one.
Bilal Bari (43') scored for Levski Sofia.
Lyuboslav Penev's Tsarsko Selo have converted 6 times throughout their latest 6 matches. The number of goals that have been scored against them during the equivalent period equals 9.

Heading into this contest, Istra 1961 haven't lost in the league to Slaven Belupo in their previous 4 games.
