Ferencvaros to boost title hopes against Debrecen

The Hungarian NB I returns this weekend with a potentially vital game for reigning champions Ferencvaros, who host Debrecen on Saturday afternoon.

Ferencvaros are currently top of the Hungarian top-flight table. However, the title race is far from over, as second-place Fehervar are just three points behind the leaders. The home side has two games in-hand though, so the destiny of their crown is in the hands of the champions.

Sergey Rebrov’s team were in inconsistent before the enforced break. However, they had suffered just one defeat in their previous 21 outings in the top-flight.

One of the main reasons for the home side being so hard to beat is their defensive solidity, as they have kept six clean sheets in their last nine league outings.

Another reason for the good recent league results is their home form. The reigning champions are unbeaten on home soil in 46 top-flight matches. More recently Ferencvaros have won four and drawn one of their previous five games in the top-flight, without conceding.

Debrecen head into this game just two points above the relegation zone in the Hungarian top-flight after a woeful run of form before the break. The visitors have lost four of their last five league matches while conceding at least two goals in all four of the losses.

The visitors have had major problems picking up points on their travels in the league of late, as they have lost seven of their last ten matches in the NB I. The fact that Debrecen have conceded at least two goals in eight of their previous 12 matches has hindered their chances of picking up results on their travels.

The visitors have a poor recent record against Ferencvaros, as they have won just one of the last 12 competitive meetings with the hosts.

Forebet predicts that Ferencvaros will record a potentially vital win in a low-scoring encounter.
