Ludogorets coach Georgi Dermendzhiev spoke at his official press conference before hosting Nordsjaelland.

"We have a lot of problems, but in the end that's why the players are in Ludogorets, so we can deal with it. Tomorrow we will determine who will be able to play," he began.

"If all the players do not recover, another decision is made and hopefully it will be successful," said Dermendzhiev.

"The win against CSKA is important for the confidence of the team and the players. At the end of the half-season you know that both psychologically and physically the team is tired because we played 13-14 games more than others. The players will handle it. The match in Denmark is in the past and is a good lesson," said Dermendzhiev.

"Nordsjaelland is a good team, it is well equipped, combinative, physically fit, it is a well-beaten team. The match will be tactical from both teams, hopefully we will win", added the specialist.
"I think that the team has matured quite well and they understood how the matches should be played in order to win," concluded Dermendzhiev.

The experienced defender of Ludogorets, Georgi Terziev, was also part of te press conference before the match with Nordsjaelland.

"The style itself is different to the Scandinavian teams. The match we played there - the artificial pitch - is not to be underestimated. Everything is different. This also contributes to the results," Terziev began. "The mood is good. In a team, when there are positive results, everything is good. Now every match has its weight. But at the moment, tomorrow is the most important, because we know that if we win, we continue in Europe," he added.

"I have matches in which I played as a right back in Ludogorets and Chernomorets. However, it is more important that when you come in you do your job and be useful for the team to achieve success. We are professionals. This is our profession and at the end of the season the physical and emotional fatigue builds up. Before important matches like with CSKA and tomorrow, the attitude before the match is of great importance. We all know what the charge is and everything has been left in the background. We are required to win tomorrow so that I can have a good holiday," concluded Terziev.
