Arda Kardzhali is confronted with a must-win scenario to harbor hopes of claiming the seventh spot as they visit the motiveless Botev Plovdiv on the final day.

Botev Plovdiv vs Arda Kardzhali Betting Tips: ARDA TO WIN

Of all four teams in the group vying for a spot in the Europa Conference League playoffs, the Plovdiv-based club has left by far the worst impression, as not only have they failed to defeat anyone during the playoffs, but they've also managed to collect a meager one point out of a possible fifteen.

Nevertheless, Botev have already secured a spot in the first qualifying round for the UEFA Europa League, after pulling off an incredible upset in the Bulgarian Cup in mid-April by toppling giants Ludogorets Razgrad in a dramatic five-goal thriller.

With nothing on the line, The Canaries head into the season's final match burdened by three consecutive losses, and there's no indication that this streak will come to an end, especially as their defense continues to struggle, shipping two or more goals in four straight competitive matches.

In stark contrast to Monday's hosts, Arda visits this year's Bulgarian Cup winners in buoyant spirits, having gone undefeated in all five of their playoff matches, recording two wins and settling for three draws.

Their impressive surge in form since the start of the playoffs has brought them within just one point of the Conference League playoff spot currently held by CSKA 1948 Sofia, leaving seventh place finish still within reach for the blue ones from Kardzhali.

Despite their road form being anything but commendable, Nikolay Kirov's men will draw confidence and motivation from the fact that they have beaten Botev on five occasions out of the last six H2H fixtures, including a 2-1 comeback victory earlier this month.

While Botev may boast a slightly superior team on paper, that won't diminish Arda's hunger for success, as they are poised to leave it all on the field to snatch vital three points and keep their hopes alive of overtaking the seventh-placed side. Feeling the hangover from their cup glory, we reckon the Canaries won't pose a hurdle for the highly motivated Arda, who have emerged victorious in four out of their last five visits to the Hristo Botev Stadium.

Arda Kardzhali team news

As for the away side, they do not have much to worry about with players on the sidelines, while Brazilian defender Cascardo will be the only one unavailable for selection in Monday's contest.

With his team finding their rhythm since the play-offs, manager Nikolay Kirov will not want to tinker too much with changes, but is expected to stick with the same XI as in the superb 3-1 win against Slavia Sofia.
