It was a magical night in Sofia last Thursday as The Saints scored late on for a famous 1-0 victory. The Saints broke at pace and Adam O’Reilly's long ball wasn't dealt with by the Bulgarians and it set Serge Atakayi who coolly nudged it around CSKA goalkeeper Gustavo Busatto and rolled into an empty net to ensure they would carry a 1-0 lead back to Dublin.



Opposition Watch

CSKA Sofia were meant to play in the league last Sunday, but their scheduled fixture was called off due to their European commitments.

They have started well in their league and currently sit 4th on 10 points after four games.

Out of those four games, they have won three and drawn one.



Team News: Mark Doyle (suspended) and Adam Murphy (hamstring) are the only absentees.
