Zorya to Win
Zorya started their Group C campaign with back-to-back defeats, though they finally earned their first victory in the section with a 1-0 win over CSKA Sofia in Bulgaria last month. Zorya won each of their next three domestic fixtures on the spin following that success and with a boisterous home crowd pushing them on, we’re tipping the in-form hosts to get the better of their opponents again on Thursday.
Zorya to Win to Nil
Bettors looking for more punch are advised to back Zorya to win to nil on Thursday. The Ukrainians kept a clean sheet en-route to victory over CSKA in Sofia last month and a repeat performance against the toothless Bulgarians seems possible this week. CSKA have only hit one goal in three Group C matches this term and their lack of punch in the final third could hold them back again.
Under 2.5 Goals
Just a single effort from Zorya’s Allahyar Sayyadmanesh in the second half was enough to separate the teams in Sofia last month and we expect the sides’ return fixture at the Slavutych-Arena to be similarly tight. Zorya and CSKA have notched just three times between them in six fixtures combined in Group C, so back under 2.5 goals to be scored when these shot-shy outfits face off.
Zorya vs CSKA Sofia: Match Preview
Zorya hit a purple patch
Zorya’s 1-0 triumph over CSKA in Bulgaria last month seemed to inject their players with a fresh dose of confidence as evidenced by their run of three straight victories since. Zorya are handily placed in third spot in a tough Premier League in their homeland, though they aren’t expected to make it out of a Europa Conference League Group that they share with strong Bodo/Glimt and Roma teams.
CSKA propping up the rest
With just one point from their first three matches, CSKA are rock bottom of Group C and their chances of sparking a miraculous turnaround in the section feel incredibly slim. Domestically, CSKA haven’t quite looked like their usual formidable selves either and they trail leaders Ludogorets by a sizable seven points in the Bulgarian First League.
