National cups are something special for many teams and supporters. Today's match will decide whether it's Ferencváros or MOL Vidi that keep their silverware dream alive.
It's no vacation for neither Ferencváros nor MOL Vidi as both were in action only a few days ago. Expect some tired legs on the pitch and/or possibly some changes to the lineups.
Ferencváros form and statsFerencváros was eliminated in the 8th round last season in the Hungarian Cup.
8-1-1 is the performance here at Groupama Aréna so far in the NB 1, giving Ferencváros a total of 25 from their 10 games here. Outstanding results! On the other hand, in the Hungarian Cup, Ferencváros has performed like this (both home and away): 3 wins, 0 draws and 0 losses. The opportunity of a proper winning streak is there for the hosts, with two straight wins here at Groupama Aréna.
Preceding that game was the away draw at Mezokovesd-Zsory that finished 2-2.
The manager S. Rebrov will start preparations for the next game as soon this is finished, as the hosts are going to MTK in only three days.
Goals decide football matches and Ferencváros are scoring many of them at home; 21 on target from 10 league matches. As for guarding their own goal, Ferencváros have only let in 4 goals at home.
MOL Vidi form and statsThey also participated in Hungarian Cup last season. This ended in the semi-finals, when Mezokovesd-Zsory drew the shortest straw.
The story so far for the visiting team on their NB 1 travels is 3 wins, 2 draws and 4 defeats. When we have look at the Hungarian Cup statistics, we find 3W-0D-0L. This is both home and away. Three has not been a lucky number for Vidi as they have been defeated three times in a row since the Mezokovesd-Zsory match. Vidi seem to be suffering from homesickness with two consecutive losses away. Third time lucky?
A 1-2 loss hosting MTK before that.
The visitors will be packing their bags again in only four days as another away game awaits: The NB 1 trip to Zalaegerszegi TE.
The Vidi manager G. Márton has got the team scoring on the road, with 18 away goals in 9 league matches. It's worth mentioning that 11 of these goals has been scored in their last three away matches. MOL Vidi's defence is not exactly unbeatable as they have conceded 15 goals from these trips.
Head 2 HeadNumbers for the last ten meetings between these two teams are: four wins for Ferencváros, two draws and four wins for MOL Vidi. Over 2,5 goals: five times; under 2,5 goals: five games.
