The Best Three Predictions for Arda vs Lokomotiv Plovdiv

At Punditfeed, you get the best soccer predictions that have no bias. After a comprehensive preview of the fixture between Arda vs Lokomotiv, the following are the best three predictions we have settled on:

Note: Odds change frequently so we recommend confirming with the bookmaker, Betfred, for the latest prices.

A low-scoring outcome

Given that both teams have little to fight for going into this fixture, we don’t expect much fanfare on match day. The hosts are fourth on the Championship Round and five points clear of fifth-placed CSKA 1948. On the other hand, Lokomotiv Plovdiv is second and four points clear of 3rd placed CSKA Sofia. Both sides will play their last game of the Parva Championship Round on Wednesday.  Moreover, a review of the previous four meetings also shows a low scoreline in three encounters, a trend we predict to continue on Wednesday.

Both teams to score: No

Lokomotiv Plovdiv is the better side in this matchup. The visitors haven’t lost a game to Arda and we don’t see that happening in this game. A strong defence has seen the visitors lose only one game in the last nine fixtures. Moreover, the visitors have kept seven clean sheets in their last nine games. On the other hand, Arda has four clean sheets in the last nine, which makes them a fairly difficult opponent in this matchup.

Draw at half-time

A draw at the break is another prediction we have for Arda vs Lokomotiv Plovdiv. These two teams are defensive and we don’t see any side going ahead in the first half. Something even more noteworthy is that in the four previous encounters between Arda and Lokomotiv Plovdiv, three matches ended 0-0 at half-time, an outcome we predict in this game.

Match Preview: Arda is yet to Record Victory Against Lokomotiv Plovdiv

Arda is wary of a difficult opponent in Lokomotiv Plovdiv before this game. But can the hosts make the most of the home environment to bag the three points? Check out our game preview for more insights into this game.

Arda

Regardless of the outcome of this fixture, Arda will have to contend with participating in the playoffs. The hosts’ manager, Nikolay Kirov, also hopes for a better result against the visiting manager, Alexander Tunchev. There has been only one encounter between the two tacticians and Alexander Tunchev took the three points after a 2-0 victory in the Bulgarian Parva Liga fixture. Two previous draws in four meetings are also worth noting, all of which ended 0-0. Nikolay Kirov has been at the helm since April 2020 and averages 1.62 points per match after 42 games in charge.

Lokomotiv Plovdiv

Lokomotiv Plovdiv has a good record against Arda, having not lost to the hosts in the previous four encounters. The two teams have met once this year and Lokomotiv Plovdiv won 2-0 on the road. The visitors hope for a second victory on their second trip to Arena Arda this year. Moreover, the visitors have won in all their two previous trips to Kardshazli and Alexander Tunchev hopes for a second away victory against Arda within three months. Alexander Tunchev took over management duties at Lokomotiv Plovdiv back in November and after 20 games in charge, he has only lost thrice, won 11 and got six draws. The visiting manager averages 1.95 points per match.
