Fehervar FC vs Reims
UEFA Europa League
Date: Thursday, 24 September 2020
Kick-off at 17:00 UK/ 18:00 CET
Venue: MOL Arena Sosto.
Vidi had finished second in the Hungarian top flight the last season, and have been one of the best teams in the country lately.
However, it deserves to be mentioned that Hungary is not that of a great league in Europe. Against one of the teams from the top five leagues in the continent, Gabor Marton’s men would be considered the underdogs.
And that’s exactly the case this Thursday. Vidi are pitted against the Red and Whites – from the French Ligue 1.
Football in France is on the rise – evident by their World Cup win in 2018, and the Ligue 1 is considered to be one of the elite five competitions under UEFA.
In a single-game tie, with a Europa League ticket at stake, Reims are easily going to be the favorites.
Fehervar vs Reims: Prediction
David Guion’s men take on some of the best teams in the continent on a regular basis, and are much more experienced in high-pressure situations like this.
They were lucky to narrowly make the Europe League cut over the likes of Lyon, Monaco etc, and at no cost will they let it go to waste.
They had recorded a 0-1 win on the road against Servette in the previous qualifying round.
In the meantime, Marton’s men had registered a 0-1 win away from home in the second qualifying round, against Hibernians.
However, the Ligue 1 side will be a major improvement over Hibernians, and Vidi will have to deliver one of their best ever performances in order to overcome them.
Considering how Marton’s men have registered a total of just one win from their past four appearances here, it seems unlikely that they would be able to trump the Red and Whites.
As such, expect a Reims win this Thursday.
