Lokomotiv Sofia emerged triumphant in a crucial fixture against Hebar Pazardzhik, clinching a vital 2-0 victory on Sunday, April 28, propelled by the stellar performance of Beninese international Steve Waren Traoré.

The win marks a significant turnaround for Lokomotiv Sofia, who had faltered in recent outings, losing seven of their last ten league matches.

However, with Traoré’s decisive contributions, the team revived their fortunes and secured a crucial three points in the “Relegation Round” of the Bulgarian D1 championship.

At the Georgi Benkovski stadium, Lokomotiv Sofia exhibited resilience and determination, with Traoré showcasing his prowess as a center forward.

The 26-year-old Beninese striker demonstrated his clinical finishing ability with goals in the 10th and 80th minutes, sealing victory for his side with a composed display of attacking prowess.

The appointment of new coach Krasimir Balakov proved instrumental in Lokomotiv Sofia’s resurgence, with Traoré benefitting from the fresh impetus instilled by the coaching change.

Acknowledged as the “Man of the Match,” Traoré’s impact extended beyond his goals, as he marshaled Lokomotiv Sofia’s forward line with authority, albeit receiving a cautionary yellow card in the process.

Traoré’s contributions this season have been invaluable, with three goals and three assists to his name in 24 appearances, comprising eight starts and 16 substitute appearances.

As Lokomotiv Sofia looks ahead to their next challenge against Etar on Saturday, May 11, 2024, Traoré’s form will be pivotal in their quest for survival in the “Relegation Round.”

With Traoré’s resurgence spearheading Lokomotiv Sofia’s revival, fans can anticipate a fiercely contested battle for survival as the team strives to defy the odds and secure their top-flight status in the Bulgarian footballing landscape.
