Standard Liege vs Fehervar
UEFA Europa League
Date: Thursday, 1 October 2020
Kick-Off at 19.00 UK
Venue: Stade Maurice Dufrasne.
Hungarian football has improved drastically over the course of past few years. We have witnessed some phenomenal performances from Ferencvaros who are one game away from UEFA Champions League, as well as Fehervar who will face Standard Liege in Europa League playoffs.
Some older football fans probably know this team by their previous name Videoton. They are arriving at Stade Maurice Dufrasne as underdogs, currently priced at high 6.50 odds to win this match.
This is a little bit too high in our opinion, considering how Standard Liege struggled to eliminate Vojvodina last week.
Standard Liege vs Fehervar Head-to-head
There was one previous head to head meeting between these two teams in 2016 in a friendly match. The score was tied at 1-1 FT.
Standard Liege vs Fehervar Prediction
Standard Liege have been quite inconsistent when it comes to First Division A matches. They are sitting in 4th place with 14 points from seven duels, but that is mainly because of great starting weeks.
Form has been weird in the last couple of weekends, featuring two wins in the last five matches, one loss and two draws. At least efficiency has been stable, bagging seven goals in above-mentioned duels.
Key figure is Selim Amallah, Moroccan midfielder who’s been very active as a goal scorer and assist provider. Fans are also hoping that Croat striker Duje Cop will start delivering and scoring.
As for their opponents, team Fehervar reached this stage after three very dramatic games. They enjoy parking the bus tactic, as all three duels ended Under 2.5 FT. They eliminated two opponents on penalties, Bohemians and Reims, while beating Hibernians on the road 1-0.
We are not expecting a lot of action here too, so Under 2.5 FT is probably the safest approach. As for the alternative, we fancy the draw option as value bet.
