Ferencvaros will take on Tobol in the second leg in round 16 of UEFA Champions League qualification. First leg result: 0-0. The match will take place at Groupama Arena in Budapest on Wednesday, July 13.
Freencvaros was again the most powerful club in the country. “Frodi”, a team that has been in good standing since the 1960s, when they were able to boast some of the best players of their time and won the Fairs Cup. There were times when things were not always the same, and it has only been in recent years that Hungary has been able to regain its status as a football powerhouse. Sergey Rebrov consistently showed good results in this area, and the Ukrainian even returned the Budapest club to the Champions League main round. Yes. And last season, under Cherchesov who arrived in the middle of the season it took another “gold”. They now want to prove that it is possible to rise further in the international arena. Although many had expected more than 0-0, Wednesday’s result was a strategic worthy one.
Tobol finally regained this title last year. “Combiners”, in 2010, had already won the Kazakh championship. There were many seasons between those wins, and Astana was left with virtually no other options. As a club, Kostanay fell into second-tier roles. They finally reached 2nd place in 2020. They beat all their competitors to win the championship. There are now a dozen and a quarter of a round left. It is hard to predict who will win the “gold”, or which applicant will finish in the 5-6th position. The competition is fierce. Tobol wants to prove that I can do it in the Champions League. This is a rare experience. Milanovic’s home wards managed a draw. However, experts and the mentor said they looked good. Cherchesov won’t agree with this. He and his wards must win at home, he said.
Ferencvaros was in Kazakhstan for the first-time. Tobol will now visit Budapest for his first time. Ferencvaros clearly have the edge and must prove that before the break. We have placed a bet on the Hungarians winning the first half and the match.
Prediction: Ferencvaros will win the match and the first half.
