I think that levski really is a great team,but at the moment they are having some problems with their players,gara dembele,de karvalio,joazihno and especially the top dog of levski todor batkov says that he has some problems with the financial support of levski.but all in all levski is the first team to reac champions league,and for a small country like Bulgaria that's a really good result
