Our prediction for this Europa League match:
MOL Vidi did well to get their job done in the Europa League qualifying tie in the first leg, with the team beating the Montenegrins 5-1 in Podgorica. The Hungarian club, though, aim to give fans yet another reason for celebration and we are positive that they will go for a win in the return leg as well. Loic Nego, who scored a hat-trick in the first leg, will be one of the men to keep an eye on in the home team.
MOL Vidi created a number of clear-cut opportunities to score in the 5-1 win over Zeta and seeing that the visitors head into Thursday’s football game with the lack of motivation, we are tempted to put our money on the hosts. You should bear in mind that Marko Nikolic’s troops played out a 2-2 draw with star-studded Premier League side Chelsea in their last home game in the Europa League.
Highlighted Player (Armin Hodzic):
Armin Hodzic is Bosnia and Herzegovina international who plays for Hungarian side MOL Vidi as a forward. Hodzic is a product of Liverpool football academy, but he did not see any game action for the Reds first team in the Premier League. In 2012 he was loaned to Bosnian side Zeljeznicar and after scoring 18 goals in 45 appearances for the capital club, Hodzic moved to Dinamo Zagreb.
Hodzic won three domestic trophies with the Modri before joining MOL Vidi in 2018. Speaking of his international career, Armin Hodzic made his Bosnia and Herzegovina debut on May 29, 2016 in a friendly against Spain. The Balkan Dragons were beaten by la Roja 3-1 that day.
Armin Hodzic’s main position is centre-forward, but he plays as both second striker and left winger as well. The MOL vidi attacker doesn’t have a preferred foot. The Bosnian attacker was born in Sarajevo on November 17, 1994.
Highlighted Team (MOL Vidi):
Founded during the World War II (1941), MOL Vidi are a Hungarian football club who play their home games at Sostoi Stadion. The capacity of the venue is 14,201 and MOL Vidi will play Europa League games on the stadium in the 2018/2019 Europa League season.
The Hungarian side were producing thrilling displays under Marko Nikolic in the Champions League qualifiers, but they eventually failed to book their place in the group stages of the elite competition for the first time ever. It has to be noted that the club changed its name from Videoton to MOL Vidi in 2018. MOL Vidi won the national championship in the 2017/2018 season, with the team clinching their third domestic trophy.
Speaking of the club’s European success, MOL Vidi did well to make it to the UEFA Cup final in the 1984/1985 season, but star-studded Real Madrid eventually proved to be a big catch for the Hungarians. Los Blancos defeated Videoton 3-1 in the title game.
