Ferencvaros vs Bayer: prediction for the Europa League match
In the final round of the Europa League group stage the main underdog of Group G, Ferencvaros, will host the leader of the group, Bayer. Will Pharmacists be able to confirm that status and to finish the group stage with a confident victory at Budapest on December 9? The answer is in our prediction.
Ferencvaros put up a terrible performance in the European competitions this year, they failed to pick up a single point in first five rounds, so they have deserved the last spot in the standings. Peter Stoger's team are looking confident in the Hungarian league, they are at the top of the standings, so they will probably try to put up an aggressive performance in the match against Bayer. They suffered a defeat at Leverkusen in the previous match (1:2).
Bayer have already clinched a play-off spot in the Europa League, they will stay at the top of the group even if they lose the game to Ferencvaros. Gerardo Seoane's men are on a four-game winning streak in all competitions now, they trashed Greuther Furth (7:1) in the previous Bundesliga game and they want to fight for the title this season, they are not too far behind the leaders of the standings. In the previous Europa League match Pharmacists recorded a home victory over Celtic (3:2).
Bayer recorded two out of four most recent away matches with that score
In five most recent home games club scored three goals before the half-time
In three out of five most recent matches of Ferencvaros this bet played
To get this straight, match in Budapest is just a formality now, teams won't have to worry about the result, so they can open up without any problems. In our opinion, Ferencvaros will try to satisfy their fans with a good home performance, so they will put up an aggressive performance on the offense.
Bayer will be in a good mood after a crushing victory in Bundesliga, so they should be able to punish Hungarian team for defensive mistakes. We are expecting many goal opportunities in this game, some of them might be converted.
Our prediction - total over three goals

Bayer are great on the offense and are solid on defense, so team should be able to punish Ferencvaros for defensive mistakes.

Our second bet is on Bayer to win
