On Wednesday night, Ferencvaros will travel to Slovan Bratislava for the second leg of their Champions League second qualifying round matchup in an effort to overturn a first-leg deficit.
Last week's opening leg ended with a 2-1 success for Bratislava. The domestic campaign of them has only lasted two games, with their opening encounter ending in a 2-1 loss against Podbrezova. However, coming off a 4-0 victory over Tencin on Saturday, they now sit in fifth place with three points.
Despite cruising through Tobol 5-1 on aggregate in the first qualifying round of the Champions League this season, Ferencvaros have stiff competition moving on. The Green Eagles, 33-time Hungarian champions who led their division by 11 points last season, will open their domestic campaign against Puskas at home on July 31.
After losing at home, Ferencvarosi were put in a tough predicament. Slovan, though, are clearly not less prepared. Additionally, they have previously won with a strong determination twice throughout this qualifier. I predict that the hosts will at least draw.
