Venue: Pancho Arena.
Puskas from Hungary will play host to the Portuguese Vitoria Guimaraes in a match of their second-leg of Europa Conference League qualification quarter finals. These two sides will be seen battling it out at Pancho Arena, this Thursday.
Last week, these two sides met at Estádio D. Afonso Henriques where a 3-0 victory was secured by the Portuguese side. Tiago Silva gave an assist and scored in the 39th minute while Ruben Lameiras and Anderson made it to three.
Puskas Academy came third in the last Hungarian league. Courtesy of finishing third last season, Puskas bagged a spot in the Conference League qualifiers after finishing inside the top four. This is just a third campaign in Europe for them who are an improving club.
It’s been a rare occasion in recent games where the Hungarian outfit have kept a clean sheet. The facts show that Puskas have failed to prevent opponents from scoring in 5 of their previous 6 games, shipping 9 goals on the way.
On the other side, Vitoria Guimaraes got promoted for the Conference League qualifiers by finishing fifth in the Portugal Premier division last season. They reached the Europa League group stages last season and remain a strong side here as well.
Over the course of their previous 6 clashes, the Portuguese side have amassed a sum of 15 goals while having also scored in every single one of those games. During that period, they’ve seen only 3 goals scored by their opponents. There is a bit of unrest at the club though, with manager Pepa sacked just days before the first-leg.

Guimaraes now remain 4-game unbeaten on road across various competitions. They also come here on the back of 3 straight wins in a row while maintaining 2 cleansheets.
