On September 24, within the framework of the third qualifying round of the Europa League, the meeting MOL Fehervar – Reims will take place. For both teams, this game is extremely important: it is important for the former to break into the main draw for some profit, and the latter played in European competitions for the last time in the last century. Who will go to the next stage? Read about it in our forecast.
MOL Fehervar gained a very decent move. If during the pre-season everything was not so rosy, now no one can stop these guys. In their championship, the team has two wins and two draws, and eight points out of twelve. The result is not bad, but there is something to strive for.
In the Liga-European qualification, everything was not very simple: in the first round, the team managed to knock out the Irish Bohemians only in a penalty shootout (1: 1, 4: 2 on penalties), in the second round, Hibernians from Malta passed with a creak (1: 0) …
Today, for the first time, the Hungarians will be outsiders in this pair, but not hopeless.
Reims last participated in a European club competition 57 years ago. The “red-whites” were very lucky that in France it was decided not to finish the season, as a result of which the club finished sixth in the table, which made it possible to play in the Europa League.
The new season for the team did not start in the best way: three losses in the league (all with one goal difference) and one draw in the game with Monaco (2: 2), and the only victory was obtained in the previous qualifying round over Servette (1: 0), and even then too strained. Therefore, it will not be easy for the French today.
The effective streak of Fehervar is 11 games in a row;
Reims are outnumbered two games in a row in Ligue 1.
It is unlikely that there will be a lot of goals scored in this game. The guests will not allow their opponent to play out in the attack, but it will be very difficult for them themselves to knock a full string bag for the Hungarians. Therefore, we expect to see not the most productive, but partly even boring meeting.
Our forecast is the total under (2.5) goals with the odds of 1.80 from BC Leon.
