Match background Only this chapter

UEFA Europa League group stage debutants Antwerp will be aiming to inflict a fifth successive Group J defeat on eliminated Bulgarian champions Ludogorets as they chase down a place in the knockout phase.

• The Belgian side won 2-0 away to LASK on Matchday 4 – having lost 1-0 at home against the same opposition on Matchday 3 – to move on to nine points, the same number as Tottenham Hotspur, whom they visit on Matchday 6. If Antwerp avoid defeat against Ludogorets and LASK fail to win at home to Spurs, the Belgian side are guaranteed to qualify for the knockout phase. If LASK lose, Antwerp's head-to-head advantage over the Austrian side will take them through irrespective of their own result against Ludogorets.

Previous meetings
• Ludogorets' first meeting with Belgian opposition came on Matchday 1 when they were beaten 2-1 in Razgrad by Antwerp, who came from behind to win on their UEFA Europa League group stage debut with experienced European campaigner Lior Refaelov scoring the winning goal.

• Antwerp's sole experience of Bulgarian opposition prior to that 22 October encounter was a famous 1989/90 UEFA Cup first-round tie against Levski Sofia (then called Vitosha), in which they drew the away leg 0-0 before sensationally scoring three late goals to overturn a 1-3 deficit and win the return fixture 4-3.

Form guide
Antwerp
• Antwerp beat champions Club Brugge 1-0 in the 2019/20 Belgian Cup final – the club's first victory in the competition for 28 years – to secure a place in the UEFA Europa League group stage for the first time.

• Last season the club returned to European competition for the first time in a quarter of a century but were unable to negotiate their way through UEFA Europa League qualifying, going out in the play-offs to AZ Alkmaar after extra time (1-1 a, 1-4 h) following an away goals extra-time win in the third qualifying round against Viktoria Plzeň.

• European Cup Winners' Cup runners-up to Parma in the 1992/93 final at Wembley, the Great Old have won three and lost four of their seven European home games since, including a win (1-0 v Tottenham) and a defeat (v LASK) so far in Group J.

Ludogorets
• Ludogorets won a ninth consecutive Bulgarian league title in 2019/20 to earn a place in this season's UEFA Champions League first qualifying round, where they beat Budućnost of Montenegro (3-1 a) before falling in the next round to Danish champions Midtjylland (0-1 h). Awarded a bye into the UEFA Europa League play-offs, they then beat Dinamo Brest 2-0 away to reach the group stage for the fourth year in a row and fifth time in all.

• Last season was Ludogorets' longest in this competition, incorporating 16 matches as they progressed from the second qualifying round to the round of 32, where they were knocked out by Internazionale (0-2 h, 1-2 a). It was the third time out of four that they had qualified from their group, finishing runners-up to Espanyol and ahead of Ferencváros – their conquerors in the UEFA Champions League first qualifying round – and CSKA Moskva.

• Having won their first four away fixtures on their debut UEFA Europa League participation in 2013/14, Ludogorets have been victorious in only two of the subsequent 15 (D6 L7) in the competition proper, losing four of the last five including both this season – at LASK (3-4) and Spurs (0-4).

Links and trivia
• Antwerp's Pieter Gerkens played at Anderlecht alongside Ludogorets defender Josué Sá in 2017/18.

• Nana Ampomah (Antwerp) and Bernard Tekpetey (Ludogorets) were team-mates last season at Fortuna Düsseldorf.

• Appointed in May 2020, Antwerp coach Ivan Leko's first game in charge was the Belgian Cup final win on 1 August against Club Brugge, the team he had led to the Belgian title in 2017/18. As a Hajduk Split player Leko faced Bulgarian side Levski Sofia in the first round of the 1999/2000 UEFA Cup, losing the tie 3-0 (0-0 h, 0-3 a).

• Antwerp are one of six clubs making their UEFA Europa League group stage debut in 2020/21, the others being CSKA-Sofia (Group A), Granada and Omonoia (E), Leicester City (G) and Sivasspor (I). They are the eighth different Belgian club to appear in the competition proper.
