Ferencvaros will host Tobol in the second leg of the UEFA champions League first round qualifying at Groupama Arena on Wednesday evening. The opening leg at Ortaliq Stadion last week had ended in a goalless draw. Although the reigning Hungarian champions Ferencvaros are the favourites to advance, if the visitors could put up a gritty performance like the home leg, we are in for a real treat. Tobol are heading into the tie on the back of a disappointing 6-1 loss to Taraz in a Kazakh Cup fixture last Saturday. Tobolyaki are currently sitting at the fourth spot in the Kazakhstan Premier League table with 25 points from 15 games, four points behind leaders FC Aktobe. 

The hosts, on the other hand, are 33-time Hungarian champions, securing the trophy last season  in comfortable fashion, finishing 11 points clear at the top of the table. Last season, the Green Eagles overcame Prishtina, Zalgiris and Slavia Prague to advance to the playoff round of the Champions League but were beaten by Young Boys, which saw them drop into the Europa League, failing to advance from Group G, collecting just three points from their six games. The winner of Wednesday’s match will face either Slovan Bratislava or Dinamo Batumi in the next round.

Jovancic and Tagybergen are likely to sit in front of the back-four.
