The team’s haven’t met prior to their battle at the Bozsik Jozsef Stadion in Budapest last Thursday.

Progres Niedercorn vs Honved Match Preview

Progres Niedercorn made a massive upset by eliminating Azerbaijani Gabala in the first round of the Europa League qualifications. They thus repeated last year’s success when they stunned Scottish giants Rangers 2-1 on aggregate, just like they did this term with Gabala.

Paolo Amodio’s men were stopped on the very following obstacle last season when they fell in both ties to Cypriot AEL Limassol. They will have a very tough task to avoid the same destiny this time out given the opposition comes in the likes of Hungarian Honved.

Honved, who won their domestic league two years ago, are back to the Europa League football after five years. The draw has opened up nicely for them as Progres Niedercorn are certainly the opposition you would want to see at this stage.

The Budapest side are massive favorites both on the night and over two legs. They steamed past Macedonian Rabotnicki with a demolishing 4-0 victory in the reverse fixture in front of the home crowd. They also started the new league campaign in a decent fashion, beating league newcomers Szombathelyi Haladas 3-2 at Bozsik Stadion.

Progres showed decent defensive displays in matches with Gabala, but will they be able to stop the red-hot attacking line of Honved’s here?

Honved come into the game off the back of netting eleven goals in last four wins in all competitions. Brazilian striker Danilo is one of the main catalysts for such splendid form as he notched 4 of these 11 goals. He is our top suggestion for the anytime goalscorer bet for this match.
