For the first time, our men's football team played as 33-time champions in the OTP Bank League. In the 30th round, head coach Stanislav Cherchesov's team was the guest of future MOL Hungarian Cup finalists Paks FC, who were without their top scorer Ádám Martin with 29 goals this time due to a yellow card suspension. Bogdán - S. Mmaee, Kovacevic, Blazic, Pászka - Besic, Vécsei - Auzqui, Laidouni, Marquinhos - Bassey.
Before the kick-off, the home players lined up to celebrate Ferencváros, the fourth consecutive NB I gold medallist. Our team took the field in the golden jersey we had seen in the derby, with Miha Blazic as our captain this time. Paks started the match. In the 3rd minute, after a great start by Besic, Auzqui's cross was met by Marquinhos in the middle, but the ball was caught by a defender. On the counter-attack, Bogdán picked up the ball from Kocsis with a good throw-in. In the 7th minute, the home side took the lead, Lenzsér crossed from a right-wing corner into the net from close range (1-0). In the 12th minute, Auzqui teased Laidouni, but our Tunisian player was long on the ball. At the other end, Sajbán's low shot was just wide of the target. In the 18th minute, our Argentinian winger's cross slipped a little and was heading towards goal, but Rácz saved a corner. In the 20th minute, the equaliser came, after Pászka's pass, Muhamed Besic pushed the ball and shot from behind, the home goalkeeper reacted late to the incoming ball, which crashed into the center of the goal (1-1).
On 5 May 2013, Besic scored his only goal in the NB I in Paks. He feels this pitch!
In the 27th minute Nikolasz Kovács received a yellow card after a bad slip on Lóránd Pászka. Just over half an hour into the game, former fan favourite Dániel Böde received a high ball but couldn't head it into the net. Immediately afterwards, our Brazilian winger Marquinhos required a short medical care, but fortunately he was not seriously hurt in an earlier collision. The short South American was sprinting down the right shortly afterwards, but his cross was high for Laidouni. Then came the second yellow, again for Paks, Kinyik kicking up Marquinhos. We also had a card flashed immediately afterwards: Laidouni got it for complaining about another incident. Laidouni also tried a long-range curled shot in the dying stages of the half, but the ball flew over the goal, and a minute later Fortune Bassey was in position, but was saved at the last minute for a corner. This could have been our second goal: Pászka's ball was headed into the right side of the goal by Blazic, but referee Berke, on the signal of the video referee (VAR), disallowed the goal for a foul. The teams went into the break with a 1-1 draw.
At the break Stanislav Cherchesov made no substitutions, György Bognár made one. Paks had the first chance of the half, János Szabó nodded over from a left-wing corner. The home side also threatened after a corner, Kovacevic was on the end of a great cross from Pászka, but his header was cleared off the goal line. The first quarter of an hour of the half only brought excitement from corner kicks. After the 60th minute, Coach Cherchesov made some changes to our line-up, firstly replacing Marko Marin Marquinhos, then Endre Botka replaced Adnan Kovacevic and Eldar Civic came on as a substitute for Lóránd Pászka. In the 70th minute, János Szabó's cross was headed clear by Windecker, but luckily he headed wide. In the 73rd minute, Auzqui was in a shooting position but his effort from 17 meters missed the target.
After 276 days, a big comeback came in the 77th minute: Dávid Sigér, recovering from a torn knee ligament, was back in action for Fradi, and even the Paks crowd applauded the national team midfielder, who replaced Besic. In the 83rd minute, the ball was on Vécsei's head, but he nodded onto the bar from Marin's corner. In the end, Ferencváros won the game, with Carlos Auzqui nodding in a left-wing cross in the 92nd minute (1-2).
In the next round of the NB I (Wednesday, 4 May, 18.30 kick-off), our team will host ZTE FC at the Groupama Arena. We will meet Paksi FC again this season: on 11 May at 19.30 in the MOL Hungarian Cup final, which will be played at Puskás Arena.
