Ferencvaros vs Djurgarden
Champions League 2020/21 (First qualifying round)
Date: Wednesday, 19 August 2020
Kick-off at 18:00 UK/ 19:00 CET
Venue: Groupama Arena.
The Green Eagles won the Hungarian league by quite a margin this season – that they had a lead of 13 points over the second-placed Fehervar. In the process, they had also scored the most number of goals, as well as conceded the least.
They have the home advantage in this single-leg tie for progression to the second qualifying round of the UCL, and despite the absence of fans, this definitely is a factor in their favor.
DIF did win the Allsvenskan, but they were made to sweat for it, and in the ongoing edition of the competition, they are placed just third in the table, and have been thoroughly dominated by the likes of Malmo, Elfsborg etc.
Moreover, they also have had some issues on the road lately, and in this high-pressure game, they really could crumble.
For the reasons, expect Ferencvaros to dominate proceedings this Wednesday at the Groupama Arena.
Ferencvaros vs Djurgarden: Head-to-head (h2h)
- These two teams are about to lock horns for the very first time.
Ferencvaros vs Djurgarden: Prediction
The Green Eagles are on a long nine-game unbeaten run, and they also had remained invincible in 28 of their previous 31 overall fixtures. Moreover, at home, they are on a nine-fixture unbeaten run, and of these, seven were wins.
They were also invincible in 24 of their last 26 appearances here, and in the process they had recorded several winning streaks.
On the other hand, the Swedish contingent had lost three of their former seven road trips, and were winless in five of their preceding ten games away from home.
Considering the overall better form of the Hungarians, and the struggles of their opposite number on the road, it’s expected that Ferencvaros will be the better team on the pitch this Wednesday.
However, this is a single-leg game which determines progression of the teams into the Champions League, and it goes without saying that nerves and pressure are high. Mistakes are expected in plenty, and the guests will be desperate as well.
Moreover, they are from a league that’s rated higher in terms of UEFA Coefficients as well. Expect them to score at least once in this game.
