Of the Bulgarian representatives in the Europa League, only CSKA has any chance to be placed in the second qualifying round, but it is far from great. The Reds begin their European campaign against the unpretentious Sirens of Malta (BR winner is broadcast in one match, which will be on August 27 in Sofia).However, for CSKA to fall into the ballot box of the favorites, a serious miracle must happen. For this purpose, it will be necessary for 20 of the 37 clubs with a higher coefficient than that of the “reds”, which will start from the first preliminary round of the Europa League, to drop out.Winbet – victory is at your fingertips! (18+)If this unlikely scenario really does not materialize, then the probability that CSKA will face a serious opponent is high. Potential opponents of the “Army” will be Tottenham, Milan, Basel, Copenhagen, Wolfsburg, Galatasaray, Partizan, FCSB, Granada and many other teams at the average European level.Our other two participants – Lokomotiv (Plovdiv) and Slavia, have no chance to be among those placed in the draw for the second qualifying round of the competition.efbet League – season 2020/2021
