Match corresponding to the 5th round of the Europa League in group H of the group stage in which they will meet at the Groupama Arena in Budapest, Ferencvaros and RDC Espanyol. For Thursday, a very autumnal day is expected in Budapest with temperatures around 8ºC and scattered showers.
With 1 point less than Ludogorets, Ferencvaros’ main rival to move on to the next phase in the Europa League, the Hungarian team arrives at this match. Ferencvaros has added 1 victory, 2 draws and 1 defeat, with a fairly negative data for their interests that is to have scored only 2 goals in the 4 games played so far.
The confrontations that remain are in addition to the parakeet, the Ludogorets on the last day. But that last match will not help Ferencvaros if he does not get a positive result of the visit to Hungary of Espanyol, which is a final.
In the Hungarian league, Ferencvaros is the leader, with several of his players taking the top scorer table as Armin Hodzic and Markó Futács.
On the last day of the Europa League he signed a goalless draw at home against CSKA Moscow.
The shadows that Espanyol is showing in the Liga, which is running as a clear candidate for the descent to the Smartbank League, are not being noticed in Europe where he leads the group H alone after having signed 3 wins and 1 draw, with 10 goals in favor and only 1 against. These results have led Pablo Machín’s pupils to guarantee the pass to the next round, but the squad knows that he cannot relax since each point in the Europa League translates into capital income and if the Spanish club is needed It is liquidity.
Last Sunday they tied 1 at home against Getafe with a goal from Wu Lei and the dynamics in the Spanish championship are very negative with only that point won in the last 12 possible.
In the group stage of the Europa League, Víctor Campuzano with 3 goals is being the main gunner of the team led by Machín.
The blue and white coach has preferred to prioritize the league and has included several youth players in the expedition to leave some regulars at home like David López, Marc Roca, Víctor Sánchez or Wu Lei. Machín has not been able to count on the injured Javi López, Naldo, Ferreyra, Piatti and Vargas.
The complete list of players who have traveled with the team is Andrés, Diego López, Adrián; Pipa, Pedrosa, Lluís López, Dídac, Corchia, Bernardo, Calero, Iago, Víctor Gómez; Iturraspe, Darder, Melendo, Barn, Pol Lozano; Calleri, Moha and Campuzano.
