Ferencvaros vs Jelgava
Europa League qualifier
Date: Thursday, 29th June 2017
Kick off at 17:45 UK/ 18:45 CET
Venue: Groupama Arena.
Ferencvaros are hoping to fix the poor impression they had left two years ago when they lost both Europa League qualifiers to Bosnian Zeljeznicar.
Their first rival in the new campaign comes in the like of Jelgava who have been struggling a lot to find goals at the start of the new Virsliga campaign.
The famous German expert Thomas Doll (who leads the team since 2013) managed to lead his team to the trophy in a rather dismal campaign Ferencvaros had in the last term of NB I.
The hosts took the title in Magyar Kupa beating Vasas on penalties to secure the new European adventure.
It’s hard to judge their current form since Ferencvaros have not played a single match after the mentioned cup final back in late May.
Jelgava notched only 12 goals in the opening 11 rounds of the new season in the elite class of the Latvian football.
The manager Alexandr Curtianu has huge problems with his team’s form on the road since Jelgava took only a single point from last three fixtures netting only one goal along the way.
Ferencvaros vs Jelgava: Head to head
The two teams have not had the opportunity to take on each other previously.
Ferencvaros vs Jelgava: Prediction
The Hungarians are massive favourites according to the bookmakers, but we see the value in backing Under 2.5 goals instead of going for the 2/7 odds offered for the home win.
The hosts lack competitive matches, while Jelgava play rather defensive football at the start of the new season in Latvia.
