Final match in the Cup of Bulgaria this season is between Montana and CSKA Sofia. The game is on Tuesday, May 24, from 18:00 GMT at the Vasil Levski National Stadium.
Last season Montana eliminated CSKA in this tournament and they will try to win again, but this time this can mean participation in the Europa League for them. Before the last round in bulgarian championshop it became clear that the team will play barrage of staying in the top flight after losing against Pirin 0:1 at home.
On 1/2-finals Montana was succulent outsider against Litex, but failed to remove them after success with 2:0 at home and defeated 0:1 in Lovech, so they showed that they can served surprises. In the squad of the team have very experienced players like Yordan Todorov Stanislav Genchev and Ivan Stoyanov. Montana surprisingly reached the final and will have to prove he deserves to argue for the trophy.
CSKA eliminated easily Beroe in the semifinal stage after two wins with 2:0. Hristo Yanev’s team will try to win his 21st Cup of Bulgaria. The last time they triumphed in the tournament in 2011, when beat Slavia 1:0 in the final.
Before win over Beroe, “The Reds” eliminated teams from the second division. They beat Spartak Pleven with 2:0 as away on 1/8-finals, then dealt with after Sozopol 2:0 at home. The team has allowed only one goal in the race, using great chances in attack so that I think are favorites to win the Cup.
The biggest success in the tournament for Montana is semi-final in season 1994/95 At present, however, their stock has more players who have lifted this trophy so the experience is on their side. CSKA however showed that even in the third level of Bulgarian football can win against elite rivals and with the support of the full stands at “Vasil Levski” I expect to win the trophy still in regular time.
