Ferencváros and Djurgårdens face at Groupama Arena, in a match for this phase of the UEFA Champions League (1st Qualifying Round). These two teams have never met before, so this will be their first head-to-head meeting.

Ferencvaros’ team comes to this match after a one-ball draw in the visit to MTK Budapest, in a game for the Hungarian Championship: Nguen scored the team’s only goal. Coach Sergiy Rebrov must maintain his style of play, that is, he will organize his players in a 4-3-3, favoring a more supported style of play. Ivorian forward Franck Boli is one of the most prominent of this Ferencvaros team and is very strong when it comes to scoring. All players are available for this game.

In this match against Ferencvaros, coach Kim Bergstrand must keep the team 4-3-3, with Jonathan Ring, Radetinac and Holmberg being the team’s most offensive references. Midfielder Fredrik Ulvestad is one of the great people responsible for creating and organizing the offensive process. For this game the visiting coach cannot count on Abrahamsson, due to physical problems.
