Ludogorets Central Defender Makes Winning PK Shootout Save to Advance to Champions League Group Stage

Cosmin Moti, a central defender for Ludogorets Razgad of Bulgaria, sealed up Man of the Match status as his team advanced in the Champions League. Moti, who is Romanian, knocked off Steau Bucharest, the most famous club in his home country, by making a penalty kick and then saving the final shot.

Moti was pressed into action as the goalkeeper received a red card, and now has sent Ludogorets through to the group stage. Moti made the save while wearing Ivan Cvorovic’s jersey in goal. He might not be too popular when they take the field in a “home” match. According to this article, Ludogorets’ stadium does not meet the Champions League criteria, and they might have to play the home games in Romania.
