Bulgaria's FC Ludogorets dramatically defeated Slovakia's Spartak Trnava 2:1 in away match in Slovakia of the group stage of the "Conference League. In the 23rd minute, a goal of Ludogorets was canceled after a video review due to an off-side.


The visiting team took the lead with a goal from Kwadwo Duah in the 74th minute. Spartak equalized only 4 minutes later with an accurate shot by Erik Daniel. In the 85th minute, Ludogorets failed to take the lead after a poor execution of a penalty kick. Substitute Matias Tissera scored in the final seconds of extra time.

If in the last round, the team of Ludogorets manages to beat the visiting strong team of the Danish Nordsjaelland as a host, this will guarantee them a go-ahead in the tournament next year.
