MTK Budapest vs Ferencvaros Prediction & Betting tips
The 122nd season of Hungary’s top division starts with a very special match on Friday evening, when two reigning champions clash in the Budapest city derby. MTK Budapest only reported back to the OTB Bank League as a second division champion after a one-year interlude, while city rivals Ferencvaros wrapped up the 31st championship in the club’s history in the summer.
Accordingly, in the run-up to the match between MTK Budapest and Ferencvaros Budapest, the odds of the bookmakers deflect towards the guests, as the odds comparison of the betting base shows.
Not only must the class difference between MTK Budapest and Ferencvaros Budapest, which may not yet be fully balanced, be included in the forecast, but the strength of the Ferencvárosi away from home also plays a role. Only three of the 16 games in the distance finally lost the green eagles in the past season.
That is why MTK Budapest offers a tip against Ferencvaros Budapest for the favorite to win points. We combine Double Chance X2 with a “BTS: Yes” in view of the home team’s many goal-scored test matches. Further analyzes and betting recommendations for the international football matches of the weekend are available in the “Betting Tips Football International” category.
The traditional club from the Hungarian capital, which was founded in 1888 and has already won the national championship 23 times, has recently become an elevator team.
In 2017, MTK was relegated from the OTB Bank League. In 2018, as the second division champion, the direct rise was achieved. As the penultimate, it then went down again, where the blue-whites returned to the top division of the country in the 2019/20 season with the next second division championship.
The big goal is now to break out of this roller coaster and keep the class in the 2020/21 season.
It will certainly not be easy under the German coach Michael Boris, because the finances did not allow the capital city to leap on the transfer market. While a great talent like Nasiru Banahene had to be sold for little money, so far only free transfer players have come.
With the 30-year-old Benjámin Balázs from city rival Újpest FC, the Banahene position has been upgraded with an experienced player, but the squad still has to prove its competitiveness in the top Hungarian division, especially since it corresponds to the philosophy of the German coach, To rely on young players from their own talent factory.
In view of the squad, which against this background lacks the very high quality in several positions, it is not surprising that at MTK Budapest against Ferencvaros Budapest the odds of the bookmakers clearly speak against the home side.
But at least the strong results from the test matches are encouraging. Budapest won all three tests and scored a total of eleven goals of their own. Most recently, the blue-whites even beat city rivals Újpest 4: 3 in the final test on Saturday.
For the first time since the two championships in 1995 and 1996, Ferencvaros Budapest successfully sworn in the overall victory in the OTP Bank League again this summer. The 2019 championship was followed by the title again under the Ukrainian successful coach Sergiy Rebrov in his second year in office.
In the end it wasn’t really tight. The lead over runner-up Fehérvár was a comfortable 13 points in the end. With that, the Zöld Sasok (German: the green eagles) have reached 31 national championships and are accordingly the absolute measure of things in the Central European inland.
Although the strong squad of the green-whites once again aroused desires. In the run-up to the first match day of the 2020/21 season, however, one looks in vain for well-known departures.
Instead, Ferencvaros made generous use of himself abroad and brought in several players, Uzuni and Baturina from Croatia, Laidouni from Belgium and Zubkov from Ukraine, to whom other big clubs from Europe were definitely involved. Because the squad of Zöld Sasok has thus even strengthened, the role of favorites of the Rebrov troop has increased even further.
Ferencvaros also shone in the friendly matches, of which no less than seven were contested. With four wins and three draws there was even a 1-0 away win at Sturm Graz most recently.
At MTK Budapest against Ferencvaros Budapest, the tip must take into account that the green-whites are extremely difficult to beat. This is evidenced by the three defeats in the 33 league games of the previous season. Anything but a point win with the newcomer would be a big surprise.
