Ludogorets’ sporting director is not scared by the euphoria in Ljubljana: “We have experience of playing in front of 50,000 spectators!”
Tickets for the return leg of the Champions League second qualifying round match between
go to med. On Saturday evening, more than 6,000 were in the outflow, now more than 8,000. It is expected that there will actually be more than 10,000 spectators; and who knows, all the tickets the club will put on sale (the capacity for the match is 14,000 due to security restrictions) might be sold out. But even though Olimpija will have loud support from the stands, the Ludogorets sporting director is unperturbed.
“Olimpija will have the support of the stands, they will play offensively, but I am not worried. Our boys have played in Rome at the Olimpico, they have played in Sevilla, they have experience of stadiums with 50,000 spectators. I see no reason why we should be under pressure to do so,” said Cosmin Moti, Ludogorets Sport Director.
The retired Romanian footballer, who also played for Ludogorets for nine years, added: “We deserved to win the first game, but unfortunately we didn’t take our chances. But no matter what, I believe we can knock out Olimpija. We will fight from the first minute to the last. I expect us to dominate, Ludogorets never defends. If we are aggressive enough from the first minute, we will eliminate them.“
