Ferencvaros take on the visitors Shamrock Rovers in the first leg of UEFA Europa League qualification finals. The match will be played on Thursday, August 18th at Groupama Arena (Budapest).
Ferencvaros are without the Champions League. It is unlikely that Fradi will allow someone to take the gold in domestic league. There, 1st place has become a compulsory program again since the time of Rebrov. Only "Tobol" was passed in the European qualification without any problems. And then on the road there was a goalless draw, but the Kazakhs were beaten at home 5-1. Then at home they managed to lose to Slovan in the end. But in Bratislava they beat the hosts devastatingly, scoring four times. It seems that with "Karabakh" they started optimistically, with 1-1 in Baku. But in the decisive match, Ferencvaros quickly conceded. Then there was Vaji's double, and all that Cherchesov's wards could show in response was a prestige goal in the 86th minute.

Shamrock Rovers remain the undisputed favorite of the domestic championship. A total of 19 titles were taken, including in the last two draws. Relatively well, as for the Irish, it turns out to play in European competition. They managed to pass the Hibernians in the Champions League qualification (3-0, 0-0). But further on, the Hoops had a meeting with Ludogorets, and already in Razgrad everything was decided, with a 0-3 defeat. But in the Europa League, the Irish have already managed to get past the 1st opponent. Shkupi was beaten both at home (3-1) and away (2-1). As a result, this success already guaranteed the wards of Stefan Bradley the European Cup autumn. Even if there is a defeat now, the group stage of the Conference League will not go anywhere. But at the same time, this does not mean that they will give up trying to stay in the current tournament. Moreover, now the team looks quite combat-ready, even if the opponent is strong and experienced.
Ferencvaros has only recently returned to European competition in earnest. Well, Shamrock Rovers, with rare exceptions, crashes in the early qualifying rounds. So this will be the first match between the clubs. Bookmakers believe that this time Ferencvaros will deal with opponent without problems. They playa at home, and the Irish have never shined on the road. We recommend using the "-1 goal" handicap on the Hungarians.
Prediction for the match: Ferencvaros to win with -1.0 handicap.
