Tobol vs Ferencvaros Tips and Prediction
With 15 games remaining in the 2022 season, Tobol is now third in the Premier League standings with 25 points after a record of seven victories, four draws, and four losses.
The team of Milan Milanovic will enter this match off of a 2-2 draw with Turan Turkistan on Friday, but they had won their previous three games and haven’t lost in any tournament since the middle of May, so confidence should be high.
Last season, Tobol won the Kazakhstan Premier League for the second time, and they are currently attempting to advance to the Champions League group stage for the first time ever.
The Kostanay-based team lost in the third qualifying round of the Europa Conference League last season, and in the first qualifying round of the Europa League in 2019–20.
Tobol will play in the Champions League for the first time since the 2011–12 season, when they lost to Slovan Bratislava on aggregate by a score of 3–1, in the second qualifying round.
The 33-time Hungarian champions Ferencvaros, meanwhile, won the title last year with ease after finishing first in the standings with a lead of 11 points.
The Green Eagles participated in the 2020–21 Champions League group stage and placed last among teams like Juventus, Barcelona, and Dynamo Kiev.
Ferencvaros lost to Young Boys 6-4 on the road in the European Cup playoff round of the previous campaign, although they did participate in the 2021–22 Europa League group stage, coming fourth in their division after playing Bayer Leverkusen, Celtic, and Real Betis. It is anticipated that Stanislav Cherchesov’s team will advance to the second qualifying round, where Slovan Bratislava or Dinamo Batumi will be waiting.
Though Tobol are already up to speed in terms of their league campaign, Ferencvaros will be mindful of the struggle they face in this two-leg contest.
Tobol may surely cause trouble for Ferencvaros in this first leg, but we are finding it difficult to support the Hungarian team, who should be able to take an advantage before the second match.
