Ludogorets – Fenerbahçe match live broadcasting

The 4th match of the UEFA Conference League Group H, Ludogorets vs. Fenerbahçe, which will start at 23:00 (Türkiye Time) at the Huvepharma Arena, will be broadcast live on Exxen on Thursday, November 9.

Ludogorets – Fenerbahçe probable line-ups:

Fenerbahçe: İrfan Can Eğribayat, Osayi-Samuel, Oosterwolde, İsmail Yüksek, Ferdi, Zajc, Crespo, Szyamanski, Kent, Cengiz Ünder, Batshuayi.

Ludogorets: Sluga, Nedyalkov, Son, Russo, Verdon, Gonçalves, Duah, Pedrinho, Caio, Delew, Rwan.

Eğribayat awaits duty

In the Conference League, İsmail Kartal generally entrusts the goalkeeping to İrfan Can Eğribayat. Considering Dominik Livakovic hasn’t been at the expected level in recent weeks, it’s likely that Eğribayat will wear the gloves on Thursday. The 25-year-old goalkeeper, who has been working hard in training, eagerly awaits his coach’s assignment. There is a possibility that the 3rd local player will be İrfan Can Eğribayat, as İsmail is suspended, Serdar is injured and Samet is out of form in Adana Demirspor away game.

İsmail Kartal

Kartal is determining the 11

Fenerbahçe, along with the Ludogorets and Adana Demirspor matches, will enter the national break. However, particularly the match to be played on Thursday in the Bulgarian away will pose a significant challenge for İsmail Kartal in terms of squad formation. Becao, Djiku, Serdar, and Fred are injured. Yet, Mert Hakan Yandaş’s recovery for this match seems unlikely. On the other hand, Samet Akaydın and Mert Müldür will also be absent from their teams as they are not in the squad reported to UEFA. In the Ludogorets away game, Samuel, Oosterwolde, and Ferdi seem secure in the defense. It appears that one of İsmail or Crespo will play as a center-back and the other in midfield. 17-year-old Yusuf Akçiçek might be a backup center-back. Considering Zajc will be in the starting 11, there will be no backups from the A team for the midfield.

Youngsters on the bench

It’s likely that academy players listed in the UEFA B list, Muhammet İmre, Kaan Akyazı, and Efekan Karayazı, will be on the bench. İsmail Kartal is also expected to rotate the attacking line. Cengiz Ünder, Ryan Kent, and Michy Batshuayi are close contenders for the shirt. As for the forward position, the choice might be between Szymanski and İrfan Can Kahveci.

What did the opponents do?

The three teams that are Fenerbahçe’s opponents in the Conference League Group H appeared on the field in their own leagues at the weekend. Ludogorets, who have recovered after the change of coach, defeated Krumovgrad 1-0 and climbed to the top in the Bulgarian League. In Denmark, Nordsjaelland defeated Vejle with Schjelderup’s single goal in front of their fans. In Slovakia, Spartak Trnava managed to defeat Moravce at home with Elayı’s goal.

Kwadwo Duah in good form

The Swiss forward was the flashiest transfer of Ludogorets this season. However, he was away from the field for a long time due to an injury shortly after arriving in July. Kwadwo Duah has slowly started to play and find his form. The 26-year-old player has significantly improved his performance recently. Duah scored twice in the match against Slavia Sofia and also scored his team’s only goal against Krumovgrad. It is expected that the striker will start in the Fenerbahçe match.

İrfan Can Kahveci

Good news from Kahveci

At Fenerbahçe, which has been shaken by consecutive injury news, the latest player to worry everyone was İrfan Can Kahveci. The national star suffered an injury in the final moments of the Trabzonspor match while taking a shot and was substituted in the 89th minute. The 28-year-old midfielder underwent a detailed examination. It was determined that İrfan had no problem, which relieved İsmail Kartal. The successful player could take the field against Ludogorets if his coach assigns him.
