"The Eternal Derby" in Bulgarian football comes in a very delicate moment for Levski Sofia.The Blues started the second part of the season in a good shape, winning in every of their opening four games (4-0-0 10-1), but something happened with this team at the end of March and since then Levski Sofia is 1-2-3 7-7, as their only victory in this period came against one of the weakest teams in this league (Kaliakra Kavarna - Levski Sofia 1-4 on 23.04.2012).However, The Blues are still in a good position to attack the third position in the standings and three points from this clash will reduce the distance between them and Chernomorets Burgas to only 2 points, four rounds before the end of the season.For me, the main problem for this team is in attack, as the hosts managed to score only 3 goals in five games before their visit at Kavarna.The defence, on the the other hand, is on a relatively good level, as The Blues allowed more than 1 goal in only three of their 25 games.CSKA Sofia, on the other hand, shows excellent form after the winter break (which wasn't expected actually), as The Reds managed to win nine consecutive games in 2012, following their only defeat in this period (Chernomorets Burgas - SCKA Sofia 2-0 on 04.03.2012).The appointment of Stoycho Mladenov as a head coach after the defeat in Burgas obviously has a positive impact over this team, as The Reds shows very pragmatic football and won most of their games without showing something special.In fact, CSKA Sofia shows excellent play in defence after the winter break, as this team allowed only 4 goals in ten games (0.40 goals per game) and thanks to that, The Reds owns the best defensive record in A grupa in this moment (14 goals in 25 games).Except everything else, CSKA Sofia has a comfortable advantage atop of the standings (five points in front of Ludogorets Razgrad), so even a point from this clash will be enough for this team.Bozhidar Mitrev (goalkeeper), Darko Tasevski (midfielder) and Daniel Mladenov (striker) will miss the game for The Blues, while Stoycho Mladenov won't be able to use Kostadin Stoyanov (defender), Petar Stoyanov (midfielder) and Ivan Bolado (striker).Most of the games between these two teams over the last couple of years have ended with less than 2 goals (nine of their last 10 games) and considering the current situation, I expect the same outcome today.
