Botev Plovdiv finished ninth in the Bulgarian Parva Liga last season, but they won the trophy in the cup, so Dusan Kerkez's team will get a chance to fight for the Europa League group phase. Botev Plovdiv never played in the group phase of any European competition. 

Botev Plovdiv had a solid preseason with three wins and one defeat. In the previous game, they won 2-0 against Krumovgrad. Good results in friendly matches will give Botev Plovdiv a lot of confidence ahead of Europa League qualifications against Maribor. 

Maribor had a solid 2023/24 season, finishing second in the Slovenian national league. Ante Simundza's team will have the opportunity to represent Slovenia in the Europa League qualifications. Maribor was solid in the previous ten years, even having two seasons in the Champions League group phase. Last year, Maribor played in Conference League qualifications, where they lost in the third round against Fenerhbace. 

Maribor had a good preseason with a 4-1-1 record. In the last match, they won 2-1 at home against CSKA 1948 Sofia. That win seems like a good preparation for another Bulgarian team. 

Botev Plovdiv vs Maribor pick: Over 2.5 goals

Botev Plovdiv and Maribor should be on a similar level, so it seems much safer to bet on over. Botev Plovdiv scored nine goals in the last three preseason matches, while Maribor scored seven in the previous four. We should expect at least three goals in the upcoming tie in Plovdiv.

Botev Plovdiv team news

Botev Plovdiv made a lot of signings this summer. The most interesting transfer is surely the transfer of Nikola Iliev, who came from Inter Milan for 300k euros. Iliev went from Botev Plovdiv youth to Inter in 2020 but never debuted in Serie A. Last season, Iliev spent on loan in CSKA Sofia. The other important signings are the transfers of Anthony Ujah (who came from Braunschweig), Andrey Yordanov (Pirin), Hans Christian Bernat (Odense), and Alen Korosec (Rogaska).
