Septemvri Sofia managed to secure its First Division status last year; the team will do everything possible to avoid playing in the Relegation Group this season. They added defenders Alassane Diaby and Alexandru Benga to strenghten the back line. In first three rounds this season, they drew to Vereya (0-0), lost to Botev Plovdiv (2-0), and won against Cherno More (5-1).
Botev Vratsa won the Bulgarian Second Division last season, beating Lokomotiv Sofia by one point. The squad was strong for Second Division; however, it was still too weak for a higher level, so they brought in 15 new players. Obviously, they will need time to fit into squad, so the results won’t come in first half of the season. They have lost all three games so far this season; to Cherno More 2-1, to Dunav Ruse 3-1, and to Levski 2-0.
