As Liverpool go to Bulgaria to take on Ludogrets they are under intense media pressure, a run of four losses in a row has left Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers under severe pressure. While Liverpool have four losses in a row and only one win in their last seven the losses have come against good teams Real Madrid (twice), Chelsea and Newcastle are all in great form the only surprise loss was to Crystal Palace last weekend but that was a bad one against a team that is struggling themselves. With Daniel Sturridge injured Liverpool have looked to Lambert and Balotelli to fix the goalscoring problem, they havent solved it. Raheem Sterling playing just behind the front one also has not worked at all. The question now is not can Liverpool win a game but can they save their season? It must start tomorrow night in Bulgaria.
Ludogorets have played well in both of their home games in the competition losing narrowly 2-1 to Real Madrid and beatin Basle 1-0 after the Swiss side had a man sent off early. While Ludogorets have struggled to score in the competition they have quality forward players in Wanderson and Quaxado. This is going to be a battle for the Bulgarians but I think they will relish playing against one of the huge names in European football in Liverpool who have five European Championship wins to their credit.
Really tough one to call here but given Liverpool's struggles I am going to take Ludogrets +1 on teh handicap, I do feel like this may finish as a push but overall i cant take Liverpool to win because of their struggles up front.
