The Etar vs. Slavia Sofia match will be played on Thursday, May 23, at the Ivailo Stadium, Veliko Trnovo. This is the second leg of Bulgarian Europa League Playoffs. In the first match, Slavia Sofia celebrated a 1:0 victory.
In their last eight games they played against each other since 2012, Etar recorded four wins, Slavia had three victories, while only one match ended in a draw. In five out of those either matches we saw over 2.5 goals, but in their last two meetings, the result was 1:0.
Etar eliminated Lokomotiv Plodviv in the first qualification round by 3:0 on aggregate. This is practically a cup competition, where the teams have to eliminate two opponents in order to qualify for this prestigious European competition. Etar is not in the great form currently, but this is the most important match for them in the whole season. Since they are not that efficient, Etar will have to save their net in order to qualify for Europa League!
