The men's football team of Ferencváros played its second Champions League group stage match on Wednesday night at the Groupama Arena. This game will go down in history as the first CL group stage match organized at the new home stadium of Ferencváros.
We started off the first half strong, keeping possession of the ball thoroughly, and we were even able to enforce our will on the opponent. In the 7th minute after a throw-in, Somalia and Tokmac built up a great attack and led the ball to Isael, whose shot seemed promising, but in the end, was saved by the goalkeeper.
Shortly after we had another attempt, but Dinamo was the one to open the scoring. In the 28th minute following an unfortunate hand ball, Dinamo Kyiv was awarded a penalty which they used to their advantage. In the 41st minute, Dinamo found our net again, with the goal of Carlos de Pena they were leading 2-0.
We kept on attacking, but without luck. The scoreline remained the same for the break.
As always, the Fradi fans were amazing throughout the whole game. Even though only 30% of the stands were filled the atmosphere was beyond words. Their encouraging chants and cheering for sure had its impact on the team.
Tokmac scored the first Fradi goal of the game in the 59th minute. After Zubkov's pass, his shot bounced off the post and into the net.
Sydorchuk from Dinamo was sent off the pitch after acquiring a second yellow card. In the 89th minute, Ferencváros was awarded a free-kick. Róbert Mak shot the ball onwards and after a few quick passes in the goal zone Boli scored, we evened the scoreline!
Five minutes extra time was added and we kept on attacking, fighting for the victory. Zubkov had a great shot from afar, just barely missing the goal.
With Tokmac's and Boli's goal, Ferencváros played a draw against Dinamo Kyiv and thus gained a point in the Champions League group stage.
