Budafoki MTE form and stats

Budafoki MTE, who have the fewest clean sheets (2) in OTP Bank Liga, have only collected 12 points from their away games in the OTP Bank Liga, after 3-3-7 (13 played). With the Budafoki MTE losing streak of four defeats in a row, regardless of arena, optimism is low and sinking. Budafoki MTE has lost their two previous away games and are eager to kill a negative trend in its infancy.

Budafoki might have something to prove in this game as they lost at home in their previous match. Ferencváros proved too strong as Budafoki MTE slumped to a 0-4 defeat in front of their own fans at Promontor utcai stadion. Prior to that match, the Budafoki manager C. Csizmadia faced defeat when travelling to MOL Vidi and losing 0-2.

Budafoki lost the plot completely in their previous game, as mentioned above. They need to recover quickly from that 0-4 beating and focus on this one.

Looking at the earlier recent performances of Budafoki when being an outsider away as they are today, we find one match with the visitors losing one time, drawing zero and winning zero games.

Budafoki MTE have a decent goal production going in their away games, although not fantastic. In 13 league away games 14 goals have been scored. Defensive performances away have varied in quality as Budafoki have conceded 24 goals on the road. For more goal statistics, check out the Statistics tab above.
