Paksi SE :
After 3 wins, 1 draw and 3 losses, the home team is currently in 3rd position, with 10 points won. In their last match, they beat Zalaegerszegi TE at home by (3‑1), after having won (1‑2) away in the previous match, in a match against Diósgyőr. This is a team that presents similar results at home and away, so it is not usually affected by the home factor, since in the last 30 games it has recorded 5 wins, 6 draws and 4 losses as a visitor; against 7 wins, 6 draws and 2 losses in his stadium. In their last 4 home games for the championship, Paksi won 2 and lost 2, for which they won 6 points out of 12 possible. Their defense has not been very strong, since they have suffered goals in 6 of the last 7 matches, but their offense has scored regularly, since they have scored goals in 6 of the last 7 matches for this competition.
Paksi’s team is improving in the competition and is approaching its initial goal of being at the top of the table. He comes from 4 consecutive victories and this further increases the team’s confidence to add another three points. However, he is aware that they will have to make improvements in defense if he wants to fight for the most advanced positions in the table. Now, when performing at home, he must go all out for another win.
The visiting team is currently in 10th position, with 7 points won, after 2 wins, 1 draw and 3 losses. In the penultimate match, they won away against Zalaegerszegi TE by (2‑4). In the last match, they tied at home against Fehérvár by (2‑2). This is a team that curiously tends to achieve more positive results as a visitor than at home, since in the last 30 games they have registered 5 victories, 5 draws and 5 defeats as a visitor, with 22 goals scored and 17 suffered; against 5 victories, 3 draws and 7 defeats in his stadium, with 23 goals scored and 26 suffered. In their last 10 away matches, Honvéd has recorded 4 wins, 2 draws and 4 losses. Their defense has not been very strong, as they have conceded at least one goal in each of the last 6 matches, but their attack has scored regularly, as they have scored at least one goal in each of the last 6 matches for this competition.
With a good attacking system and a defense that has been very weak, Honvéd are very close to the unwanted zone of the leaderboard. Furthermore, the high number of oscillations prevents a possible evolution. Therefore, without suffering a defeat two games ago, he will have to try to dominate the game, despite being acting far from his dominions, aiming to add the 3 points.
