FTC claimed a one-goal win over Budapest Honvéd in the Hungarian Cup.
Saturday night the spring season has begun in Hungarian football. FTC encountered Budapest Honvéd at the Groupama Arena. From the first minute our team pressured and created numerous chances. Between two Fradi attacks the away team caused danger as well where Dibusz had to show big saves. In the 34th minute Moutari took a ball from the slow Honvéd defenders and scored unstoppably. Soon after half time Leandro extended Fradi’s lead from five. Just before the final whistle Lanzafame scored and brought back hope for his team for the second leg. The match closed with a 2-1 final result.

Thomas Doll: - We played a really great match, both teams showed good performances. Honvéd and we played in high pace and created great chances. When we possessed the ball, then we played well on the wings. In the future we have to be more clever, and at counter attacks we have to be more disciplined. We have to acknowledge as well, that in some cases we had pure luck with keeping our nets untouched. We wanted to score the third goal too, but instead, there was a situation when we didn’t pay attention... For this reason I don’t know whether I should be happy or not… The boys played well and overall we had a good match. It is obvious that we want to go through as we want to play the final in our beautiful stadium.
