Our prediction for this Champions League match:
Ferencvaros will be aiming to seal their spot in the Champions League second qualifying round when they take on Klaksvik on Wednesday afternoon. The Hungarian champions failed to turn their dominance into goals in the first leg (0-0), but they are still seen as hot favourites to beat Klaksvik at Groupama Arena. There are no fresh injury worries in the home team, but summer signing Cebralis Makreckis could sneak into the starting XI.
The Faroe Islands outfit, on the other hand, are likely to adopt yet another defence-minded approach, but preventing Ferencvaros attackers from scoring in Budapest is easier said than done. Taking everything into account, we do not believe that Klaksvik are capable of claiming a major scalp in the Champions League first qualifying round. Barring any fresh selection worries, Magne Hoseth is unlikely to make changes to the team that managed to share the spoils with Ferencvaros a week ago.
Highlighted Team (Ferencvaros):
Established back in 1899, Ferencvaros are the most successful Hungarian club. The Zold Sasok clinched their 30th domestic trophy in the 2018/2019 season, but they eventually failed to book their place in the Champions League. Dinamo Zagreb proved to be a big catch for Ferencvaros in the Champions League play-offs, but the Green Eagles booked their spot in the Europa League group stages for the first time ever the same season.
Ferencvaros are well known for their green and white home kit, but they wear white shirts and white shorts when playing on the travels. Ujpest are considered the club’s fiercest rivals, whilst Ferencvaros and MTK Budapest face each other in the Eternal derby.
Honved are seen as the club’s bitter rivals as well. Back in 1975 the Zold Sasok made it to the UEFA Cup Winner’s Cup, with the team losing to Ukrainian club Dynamo Kiev in the title game. Sandor Kocsis, who scored 75 goals in 68 appearances for the Hungarian national team, is the club’s most notable footballer.
