The 2018/2019 season was one of the hardest in terms of winning the championship title. Ludogorets stood against the two teams located in the capital city of Bulgaria and eventually won the title this month. It seemed that Levski was the main competitor, especially during last autumn. The champions won against them with a 2:1 score. This was Paulo Autuori’s last game as the head coach of the team, after which he left for Columbia. Antoni Zdravkov took his role and managed to keep the team on top of the overall rating. Ludogorets left no doubt about their supremacy during the season despite their participation in the Europa League group phase. The team could not manage to continue their participation after the games against Bayer, Zurich and AEK Larnaca.
The spring season was really dramatic and Ludogorets won a lot of points, but they remained the overall leader. The champions defeated Levski twice and they also never lost a game against CSKA-Sofia. The last round was crucial but the team defeated 4:1 Cherno More at ‘Ludogorets Arena’ stadium and won the title with a single point in advance of the second team overall.
