Ferencvaros has won four titles in Hungary in the last four years. They have established a dominance in that country similar to Red Star, Cluj and Ludogorets in the surrounding countries. The problem of all these clubs is that they cannot make breakthrough in Europe. Ferencvaros played three times in the group stage of European competitions in the last three seasons, but they never advanced in knockout stage.
After Serhiy Rebrov resigned in June 2021, club management made the wrong choice by bringing in Peter Stoger. He didn’t live up to expectations, but his successor Stanislav Cherchesov is doing very good job lately. Ferencvaros didn’t shine against Tobol in first game in Kazakhstan, but they beat them by 5:1 in Hungary. Ferencvaros has huge support from the stands and nobody is comfortable playing against them in Budapest.
Between two seasons, Ferencvaros wasn’t active on market. All important players are still in the squad, plus they signed Adama Traore from Sheriff and Xavier Mercier from Leuven. They are favorites against Slovan at home, but they will need to prove that on the pitch.
Slovan Bratislava had a huge amount of luck in the first round of Champions League qualifying against Dinamo Batumi. After 0:0 in Slovakia, an identical result was seen after 90 minutes in Georgia. Dinamo took the lead in 104th minute, but Slovan managed to equalize a few minutes before the end. When it seemed that we were going to see penalties, a real shock followed.
In the 123rd minute, Slovan got a corner kick. Vladimir Weiss decided to be brave and shot directly on the goal and that worked unbelievably well in his team favor. Dinamo Batumi goalkeeper made an unforgivable mistake and ball ended up in his net.
The good thing for Slovan ahead of this clash against Ferencvaros is that they are not favorites now. The pressure is on their opponents and that might work in their advantage. Last season, Slovan played in the group stage of European competition after seven years, and they want to do it again. Europa League group stage would be a great place for them, but they will surely be satisfied if they are playing in the Conference League in September and October.
These two teams played against each other last time in 1992 in the Champions League. Then, Slovan Bratislava advanced to the next stage. In Slovakia, they won 4:1, while in the second leg it was 0:0 in Hungary.
All playes are available for Ferencvaros. Marian Chobot and goalkeeper Michal Sulla are unavailable for Slovan Bratislava.
Ferencvaros vs. Slovan Bratislava Prediction
Ferencvaros played impressively against Tobol on their home pitch. If they are even half as good against Slovan, they will almost certainly win. Slovan showed very poorly performance against Dinamo Batumi and it’s hard to believe they will improve significantly after seven days only.
