Honved vs Rabotnicki Match Preview

Rabotnicki have not been dealt one of the smoothest early draws for this season of UEFA Europa League as they will have to go past the Hungarian Honved to reach the second qualifying round. Knowing they fell 4-1 on aggregate to Belarusian Dianmo Minsk in the previous term of the competition, it is hard to expect much against the likes of took the silverware in the Hungarian top flight two years ago.

The visitors are back to Europa League adventures after a five-year absence from the competition and they are targeting a deep run this time out. Pre-season friendlies are certainly a positive indicator for Attila Supka’s men who will head into this after beating both Nitra and Zlate Moravce in recent days.

Honved were nowhere near to defend the silverware in NB I LIga last season when they only came fourth behind Videoton, Ferencvaros and Ujpest. Playing away from home was not an issue for them in the finish of the season which saw Honved lose just one of last five league ties on the road.
