Ludogorets head coach Georgi Dermendzhiev commented the draw for the first preliminary round of the Champions League against Dinamo (Batumi).

"We are starting to scout the opponent. This is a good team that is the champion of a country that participates in the European Championship," said Dermenzhiev. "We must be 100 percent motivated in the matches with Dinamo. Is this the most difficult team we have faced? I see no point in commenting on this issue. The draw has been drawn," added the specialist.

For the head coach of Ludogorets, the fact that the team is the host in the first match and will visit Batumi in the second leg is not of great importance. "Away or home in the second leg does not give an advantage. There are two matches, and away goals in two draws do not count. We simply have to play the matches with the Georgians at the same level as both matches in order to be able to eliminate them", said Georgi Dermendzhiev.

Finally, the specialist shared his impressions on Dinamo (Batumi):
"This is a very good team. There is serious growth under the guidance of their Ukrainian coach. Dinamo has a style that is recognizable. They will also strive for wins in the matches with us," Dermendzhiev is convinced.
