Liverpool’s visitors could be somewhat overwhelmed by the atmosphere on Tuesday…
Ludogorets, the Bulgarian side who will visit Anfield on Tuesday night in the Champions League, were given a less than emphatic send-off ahead of their trip to Liverpool.
Reports in the Daily Star claim that the club’s previous league game, a 2-1 win away to Botev Plovdiv, was played in front of under 3000 fans, a tally that was surpassed three times by Conference games in England last week.
As the source explains an away win is obviously a good morale booster for a big midweek fixture in the Champions League. However, the atmosphere while lively for the number of fans, will have done nothing to prepare them for the cauldron that is Anfield on a European night.
Liverpool have sold every ticket for their first game in Group B and playing in front of 45,276 Scousers will be a very different experience for the Bulgarian champions.
As if to make matter worse, the visitors will be without both their recognized club goalkeepers, and are now forced to turn to 23-year-old Georgi Argilashki who is yet to make a league appearance for the club.
