Arda is dominant at home!
In Arda Kardzhali it is easy and calm to play. If Rumen Gaitanski is behind you.
So he ensured everyone in and everything around the club that Arda in only its second season in the elite are in 4th place.
As they allowed only 4 losses.
It invests both in the right staff and in the team base.
Arena Arda is one of the best Bulgarian stadiums. And Ivaylo Kirov was named coach of the year.
Arda plays very disciplined, compact in all 4 phases of the game.
Each opponent is studied in detail.
Especially at home, Arda is so dominant that they have only one loss so far.
Spas Delev and co did not lose to any of the Top 6 teams in the championship.
The very fact that as many as 6 Arda players received calls for the national team speaks volumes about the quality.
It is no longer a secret that the goal for the team is the Euro tournaments.
Now things are set up in such a way that it is very possible that they will reach the final for the cup against the future champion of Bulgaria.
Before that, however, the good old Slavia stands in their way.
Slavia has another priority!
As Ivaylo Dimitrov mentioned after their match with Levski, they were aware that the only priority for Slavia is survival in the elite.
However, each of the players secretly dreamed of the Cup of Bulgaria.
And why secretly?
Well, because they were "obviously" ordered not to live in it much.
I do not want to say anything about the 3-2 victory over Arda in the championship. Very valuable success.
And in general, lately Slavia creates the impression of an up-trend.
Forecast for Arda - Slavia
However, I believe that for this match Arda Kardzhali is the team with the undoubted motivation.
They are also the team that is much more tactically literate.
And he undoubtedly knows how to take revenge for the loss in the championship.
I do not believe that Slavia are able to make a double over anyone. Especially this season.
Victory for Arda then. And not only in the final, but also in the first half.
