The Derby

CSKA - Levski 2-2

I know my Bg pals have seen it and can saysome things like "Oh, Levski was so much better again and they were so lucky and Gonzo is genious" and I know tomorrow there will be another ridiculous rumour on how Levski will seel Gonzo for 15 mln $, so I will just post the staistics ...

CSKA (Sofia) - Levski (Sofia) 2:2

1:0 L.Penev 43,
2:0 Vl.Manchev 55,
2:1 G.Ivanov 64,
2:2 G.Chilikov 69]

[M.Vranyesh - red card 90+3; there were also 9 yellow cards]

From what I have read it wasn't a very pretty game but very nervous and tense. All in all the papers say that the ref was OK and did not make any major mistakes ...

Curiously enough the CSKA coach Luigi Simoni (yes, the same Simoni that coached Inter) had an injury while jumping after L.Penev goal (yes, the same Liubo Penev but 100 pounds heavier ) and will undergo a surgery tomorrow ...

Here is report on the Derby ...

REPORT CSKA 2 Levski 2

Saturday 2nd March 2002

Honours finished even in the Sofia derby as Levski came from two down to draw with CSKA and retain their seven point lead at the top of the table.

Georgi Ivanov, as so often before, was the man who turned the game, striking on 63 minutes to kickstart the fight-back.

CSKA have not beaten their city rivals since 1999, but they looked to be on their way when Lubo Penev fired home a free-kick on the stroke of half-time.

And if there was any doubt how much this game means to the Reds, coach Gigi Simoni had to have treatment at half-time on a Achilles injury sustained in celebrating the goal.

Vladimir Manchev added a second with a marvellous solo effort on 56 minutes, but Ivanov reduced the deficit with a superb volley

It was eighth goal in league meetings with CSKA, a tally beaten only by Bulgaria legend Nasko Sirakov.

And five minutes later the comeback was complete as substitute Georgi Chilakov, having been on the field for just two minutes headed home his third goal in his last three games.

Levski were on top from then on, and CSKA defender Mico Vranes was sent off for the second time in a week in injury time for a foul on Ivanov.

From the resulting free-kick Levski skipper Stanimir Stoilov almost grabbed a dramatic winner, but his curling effort was saved majestically by Nenad Lukic.

CSKA: Lukic, Tomash, Gal. Ivanov, Gay, Vranes, Sv Petrov (Varbanov 67), Yanev, Yanchev, Mokke (Bukarev 70), Penev, Manchev.

Levski: Ivankov, Topuzakov, Stoilov, Dragic, Angelov (Rahim 52), Golovskoi, B Ivanov, Stankov (Chilikov 66), Kabat, G Ivanov, Pantelic (Kushev 46)

Booked: Penev, Yanchev, Gay, Manchev (CSKA); G Ivanov, Stoilov, Golovskoi, Dragic, Pantelic (Levski).

Sent off: Vranes (CSKA).

Referee: Kamen Aleksiev

Attendance: 17,000

Didn't watch much of the game cauz I was cleaning my keyboard ... But Golovskoj and Kabat did ok in our midfield, with Angelov in the first half, and Yanchev and Penev were the best CSKA players.

About Gonzo, well take a look at his stats vs CSKA and u'd know there is nothing to comment there.

Hm, I was on en expedition in Stara Planina, Sopot and Karlovo so you can guess that I didn't watch the game.

Bye Bye.

pS. an eventual win, would have told us who is the worse team and not the better.
