There is no stop for Ferencváros’ men’s football division. After having played already two rounds in the Champions League qualifiers and the first league round, Wednesday night Peter Stöger’s team ran onto the pitch against Slavia Praha in the 3rd round of the CL-qualifiers. A superb atmosphere waited the players, approximately seventeen thousand supporters cheered for Fradi today putting another layer of pressure on the Slavia players.
The supporters saw a match between equally strong teams where the opponents were more initative in the beginning of the match, Ferencváros in the middle and last parts and Slavia once again in the middle of the second half. Our attackers and the atmosphere caused jointly a huge mistake and a bizarre own goal for Slavia in the 44th minute: Kacharaba collected the ball from the approaching Ryan Mmaee, passed back to the goalkeeper, from whom the ball bounced into their own net. This goal caused such confusion for the opponents that even the half time break was not enough to refresh the minds: four minutes into the 2nd period, Fradi received a penalty that Kharatin converted confidently. Only moments later Tokmac went one on one to the goalkeeper but he managed to save in the last moment.
With these goals and chances, the final result was created, Ferencváros won 2-0 over Slavia. This has only been the second defeat to Slavia this year, the previous winner being Arsenal. Peter Stöger’s team can be proud of itself today for its fighting spirit and can travel to Prague next week in an advantageous position.
