I was expecting mostly around 1.55 for under in this game, so will gladly take this 1.65 that Bet365 currently offers.
Lokomotiv Sofia won in Stara Zagora with 1:0 in the last round and this way ended their terrible run of four consecutive defeats in the league, but still, despite that moved to ninth place, they are a whole nine points behind seventh in the table, which is exactly Cherno More. After the end of the regular season the A Group will be divided by two groups of seven sides and the first seven will be in the Championship group, while the second will fight against relegation. And nine point behind the seventh place with juts five rounds left to play means nothing else but no chance for Lokomotiv. However, the points from the regular season will be divided by two for the playoff groups and therefore the hosts need a positive result here, as if we say that Beroe from the second group will safe their place in the league (for me), than the battle between Lokomotiv, Slavia and Chernomorets against relegation will be big and every point counts here. Lokomotiv lost to Slavia and Loko Plovdiv in their recent two home games and another bad result will be a big hit to their chances of survival at the end here.
Cherno More on other side can always be trusted for unders on their away games. So far the team had made just one single over in their ten games away from home and have an average of 1.4 goals per game. The point should be enough for them here in my opinion, as currently they have five points advantage over eight in the table Beroe, who will most probably lose against Botev in this round. Cherno More plays defensive football, with a lot of aggression in the tackles and tries to tear the game and their matches on the road are playing mostly in the midfield area, with a lot of battle. Also on the road so far in a whole ten games the team had managed to score just four times and adding to that the fact that Lokomotiv is not scoring a lot recently as well, this is another plus for my bet.
Also the weather in Bulgaria in awful this days. Cold temperatures, also snow expected and the field will be extremely tough.
