Ferencvaros vs Shamrock Rovers
UEFA Europa League
Date: Thursday, 18 August 2022
Kick-off at 17:30 UK/ 18:30 CET
Venue: Groupama Arena.
Hungarian champions Ferencvaros are just one more step away from qualifying to the Europa League, which has been their objective for quite some time now. Meanwhile, Irish champions Shamrock Rovers will try their absolute best to hold these rivals, but their form on the road has not at all been impressively lately.
There is no doubt that Shamrock are the top dog in the Irish football scene, but they will be punching above their weight in these types of European fixtures. Moreover, they have the unluck to play this first leg away from home, and their rather poor record on the road tips the scales away from them.
Meanwhile Ferencvaros have been on a mission for quite some time now. They had lifted their league title with a 12-point lead at the end of the campaign and all along they had found the back of the net in plenty.
On top of that, they also have been on a superb stretch of results in front of their home crowd for the last several match-days, and as such, they have built quite some momentum as well.
By the looks of things, it is expected that Ferencvaros will deliver a winning performance this Thursday at theirhome.
