We congratulate our new addition on his birthday and wish him good health and success with the Pirin jersey!


Babich: “We have to pursue our goal and yes ...

On Wednesday, 28 February, Pirin visits Heber in the ¼ final of the tournament for the Bulgarian Cup. The match has a starting time 14.30. In the event of a tie in regular time, extra time and possibly penalties follow. On his way here, Pirin sidestepped Vihren (Sandanski) after a victory with 1:0 as a guest and Botev (Vratsa) with a home win after extra time with 2:1.

Information about the excursion of the supporters of the team can be found in the official channels of the club in social networks.

On the occasion of the upcoming match in Pazardzhik, head coach Oleksandr Babich gave a short interview to, in which he shared his expectations.

"We are training in a great mood after the victory, which we won in Vratsa in the last round. The boys are working hard. We have two or three with injuries, but nothing serious. Of course, let's hope things stay like this after the last training session (b.r.. on Tuesday afternoon). The permanently injured Ilian Kostov remains out of the plans, who is not clear if he will soon be able to join the training process, as well as the punished, because of the two yellow cards in the match with Botev Aymen Souda.

We watched a few of Heber's fights. They are a good team with an excellent coach, showed great character in the victory at the end of their game with Lokomotiv (Plovdiv). I don't think so, that this, that they are home in the upcoming match will give them a special advantage. We know, that our fans will support us. This is a tournament clash, and the odds in this case are 50 on 50. We must pursue our goal and be uncompromising.  

I have the experience of participating in the ½ final of the Ukrainian Cup tournament with Mariupol, when we lost on penalties to Vorskla, we were just one step away from the finish line (b.r.. season 2019-20). Now I hope Pirin and I will have more success. It takes healthy nerves, composure and patience.

In the first half of the match with Botev in Vratsa we followed our game plan and from that point of view I was very satisfied. We acted, as we had determined to do. Among this, staying with one person less we had to improvise in some situations. But I would like to see the same self-giving, spirit and discipline also in the match with Heber", Eagles' mentor finished.  


Pirin with a victory as a guest in Vratsa

Pirin won with 2:1 Botev as a guest (Vratsa) in the opening match of the 22nd round of the First League. Goals for the first success since the resumption of the championship came from Danilo Polonsky and Jugo Komano in each of the two halves, and the reserve Ndiaye signed for Botev in the 88th minute. “The eaglets” played with a man less than the 42nd minute, when Aymen Souda was sent off with a second yellow card. So Pirin, who is 14th already has a lead of 6 ranking points ahead of today's opponent.

The match started evenly with no chances in the first minutes. In the 10th Aymen Souda tried his luck from distance, but Rubio made the catch without a problem. In the 18th minute, Ivan Tasev brought Danilo Polonsky alone against the goalkeeper. The striker pushed the ball past the Vracani goalkeeper, but she got out.

10 minutes later, the Eagles missed the goal again. Asen Donchev crossed from the right and found Jugo Komano, who headed in from close range. Only a good intervention by Rubio prevented the goal.

In the following corner, however, the logical thing happened and Pirin took the lead. A short corner kick allowed Aymen Souda to cross to the penalty spot. There, Danilo Polonsky intercepted from the air and although he did not deliver the strongest blow, he was enough, to entangle the ball in Botev's net (Vratsa) – 0:1. It was the first goal in Polonsky's professional career.

In the 37th minute, Andrey Yordanov shot hard from a distance on the diagonal, but the goalkeeper of the hosts again showed his class and saved.

Shortly after, Ivan Tasev was brought to a good position, but hit the side post from close range.

In the 41st minute, Aymen Souda received an excessive second yellow card, for a "foul" against Marko Majuga in midfield.

The score remained unchanged until the end of the half.

At the beginning of the second half, goalkeeper Kovalev made a great double save, to leave the result 1:0 for the benefit of our team.

In the 69th minute, Arno Luzaidio made a great break from the right and passed low on the grass in the penalty area, where Yugo Komano was not wrong, to make the result 2:0 in favor of our team with his 4th Premier League goal of the season.

In the next round, our team visits Arda in Kardzhali, and before that, the quarter-final for the Bulgarian Cup against Heber in Pazardzhik is coming up.
