Ferencváros enter this upcoming match with impressive form, having won their last seven games in all competitions. Their most recent defeat was against Pusksa in the third round of league action back in August. Their positive momentum continued in the Europa Conference League, where they started with a convincing 3-1 victory over Cukaricki, putting them at the top of Group F with 3 points.
In domestic competitions, Ferencváros demonstrated their dominance with an astonishing 8-0 win over Nagyecsed in a cup fixture and a commanding 6-2 victory against Zalaegerszeg in their most recent league match.
In the current domestic league standings, Ferencváros hold the 6th position with 9 points from 4 games. They have been prolific in front of goal, scoring 18 times, but have also conceded 8 goals.
Unfortunately, Ferencváros will be without Adama Traore for this match due to an injury sustained during his last international appearance for Mali in the AFCON qualification rounds. Traore had been in exceptional form, scoring 8 goals in 5 games across all competitions for Ferencváros before the international break. His absence will be felt as he was a crucial part of their attacking setup.
However, the team can still rely on Barnabas Varga, who is the top league goalscorer with 7 goals and has also provided 1 assist. Varga will be looking to carry the team's goal-scoring burden in Traore's absence. His contributions will be pivotal to Ferencváros' chances of maintaining their winning streak and success in both domestic and European competitions.
Kisvárda have endured a challenging period with a recent lack of wins, but they seem to be regaining their form with two consecutive victories. These wins include a dominant 5-0 triumph over Pilisi in a cup fixture and a solid 2-0 win against Nyiregyhaza in a friendly match.
However, their struggles have been most apparent in the league, where they have gone five games without a victory. In their last five league outings, Kisvárda have failed to secure a single win, managing only one draw and suffering four losses. This inconsistency has placed them in the 11th position in the league table.
In the current league standings, Kisvárda have accumulated just 4 points from 6 games. They have scored 6 goals but have conceded 12, indicating both offensive and defensive challenges. Their position in 11th place is precarious, as they are only one place and one point above the bottom side, Zalaegerszeg, who have 3 points.
Looking at the recent head-to-head meetings between Ferencvárosi TC and Kisvárda, it's clear that Ferencváros have had the upper hand. Since 2021, they have faced each other six times. Ferencvárosi TC emerged victorious in four of those matches, while Kisvárda managed to win one. Additionally, one match ended in a draw.
In terms of goals during these clashes, there were a total of 16 goals scored. Ferencváros contributed 13 of those goals, while Kisvárda scored three. This gives us an average of approximately 2.67 goals per game in their head-to-head encounters.
Their most recent league encounter took place on May 6, 2023, during NB I match day 30, where Ferencvárosi TC secured a convincing 3-0 victory over Kisvárda.
