The La Liga side were a goal to the good after just five minutes when Antonio Barragan netted.

The Bulgarian champions were given the chance to level things up on 23 minutes when they were awarded a penalty after Seydou Keita was given a straight red for a clumsy challenge inside the box.

However, Diego Alves made the save to keep the visitors in the lead before Federico Cartabia made it 2-0 on 34 minutes.

Former Arsenal defender Phillippe Senderos made the result safe when he reacted quickest to turn the ball home just before the hour mark.

Ludogorets' man advantage was wiped out in the last 10 minutes when Juninho saw red for kicking Joao Pereira.
