Slovan Bratislava have been by far the best team in Slovakia for several years. They have won the last four domestic championship titles, which is the best indicator of their dominance. They opened the new season in the championship with one win and one loss, but they are again the main favorites to win the trophy.
They have recorded excellent results so far in the Champions League qualifiers. In the first round, they eliminated the champion of Georgia, Dinamo Batumi, and they achieved the best possible result in the first match against Ferencvaros. They were losing 0-1 until the 81st minute, but then Kashia and Barseghyan scored in five minutes for a complete turnaround.
Anyone who watched the match knows that the players of the Slovakian team were in a subordinate position for most of the time and that the result is far better than the way they played. Vladimir Weiss’s players will have a tough test on Wednesday, as the rival will attack strongly from the first minute.
Ferencvaros, like Slovan, are equally dominant in their country. They also won the domestic championship four times in a row, but they have recorded consistently good results in European competitions as well. The Hungarian champions have been part of the group stage of the Champions League or Europa League for the last three years, which is a good continuity for any team from this country.
The style of football preferred by coach Stanislav Cherchesov is likable and modern, and the team management tries to bring in very good players every season. The most high-profile signing this summer is Sheriff’s former right winger Adama Traore, who has already scored twice in these qualifiers.
Ferencvaros defeated Tobol from Kazakhstan in the previous round, and are a big favorite in this one as well, despite losing in the first round. The players of the Hungarian team were better on the pitch in the first game against Slovan, but they were unlucky. In addition, they conceded two goals at the end of the game due to a lack of concentration, so now they will have to win in Bratislava if they want to avoid elimination.
These two teams have not played against each other since way back in 1992, when Slovan was better in the Champions League qualifiers.
Slovan Bratislava (4-4-1-1): Chovan; Medvedev, Kashia, Abena, De Marco; Barseghyan, Kucka, Kankava, Pauschek; Weiss; Saponjic
Ferencvaros (4-2-3-1): Dibusz; Wingo, Mmaee, Kovacevic, Civic; Laidouni, Esiti; Nguen, Zachariassen, Traore; Boli
We believe that Ferencvaros are a better team than Slovan and that the result of the first match is not a realistic indicator of the strength and quality of the two teams. The Hungarian champion controlled the pace for most of the game and we believe it will be the same on Wednesday, with one change: now the result will be different.
