Shamrock Rovers take on the visitors Ferencvaros in the second leg of UEFA Europa League qualification finals. First leg result: 0-4. The match will be played on Thursday, August 25th at Tallaght Stadium (Dublin).
Shamrock Rovers are the strongest in Ireland but weak at a serious level in Europe. The "Hoops" can rightfully consider themselves the giants of Irish football. Both in historical terms, with their 19 league titles, and now, because everything goes to the fact that in the fall it will come out to take the 3rd "gold" in a row. But in the international arena, there is nothing special to boast of. Only once, in 2011, did they manage to reach the group stage of the Europa League. Now there was a chance to repeat that success. Bradley's wards passed Hibernians in the Champions League qualification (although they later lost to Ludogorets), and already in the Europa League they coped with Shkupi (3-1, 2-1). But the result of the visit to Budapest does not leave hope for some kind of "happy ending".

Ferencvaros was too unstable this summer. The Fradi dominate Hungarian football again. And the season before last, under Sergei Rebrov, they finally managed to fully return to the Champions League - the club then made it to the main, group stage. Of course, Stanislav Cherchesov wanted to repeat the achievement. But his wards went through the qualifications calmly only against Tobol, although they were 0-0 there in Kazakhstan at first. With Slovan from Bratislava, they managed to turn 1-0 into 1-2 at home. But then there was an defeat of the Slovaks. With Qarabag, on the contrary, after 1-1 in Baku, the Hungarians managed to lose 1-3 at home. And it looks like they took all their anger out on Shamrock Rovers. Auski opened the scoring already in the 13th minute, then there was Traore's double, and, finally, the final 4-0. Of course, it is already clear that Cherchesov and his players remain in the tournament for the group stage as well.
4-0 on August 18 was the first meeting between the Irish and the Hungarians in history. Odds indicate that Ferencvaros can win the second leg as well. But in general, everything is clear in this pair, and it is unlikely that the parties will tear the veins together - we are waiting for the "total less than 2.5”
Prediction for the match: Under 2.5 scored goals.
