Ludogorets host Arsenal in Group A of the UEFA Champions League this evening.
Mesut Ozil’s hat-trick – the first of his career – helped the Gunners to a 6-0 victory in the reverse fixture on matchday three.
The Gunners, who had not previously faced Bulgarian opponents, began their 19th successive group stage campaign with a 1-1 draw in Paris, where Olivier Giroud was sent off in added time. They then beat Basel at home with an early pair of Theo Walcott goals and share top billing with Paris on seven points.
Ludogorets only previous encounter with English opponents came in the 2014/15 group stage, their first appearance among the continent’s elite. They lost 2-1 at Liverpool FC and then drew 2-2 at home.
