The Ferencvaros vs Shamrock betting tips favor Ferencvaros to win the first match and the whole tie, let’s see their odds below.
A total of 20 teams will play in the last qualifying round, in the Europa League play-off to earn their places in the group stage. We can find teams who joined the competition at this stage like Fenerbahce, Austria Wien, and Gent. Others won the previous qualifying round to get here like Shamrock Rovers. While some clubs lost their ties in the Champions League and fell into this league.
Including the Hungarian champion, Ferencvaros who lost their tie against Azerbaijani club Quarabag. Now they will face the Irish team of Shamrock in the play-off. With another chance of reaching the Europa League group stage like they did in the previous season. Their opponents can reach the group stage for the second time in the club’s history. But even losing against Ferencvaros will mean a group stage place in the Europa Conference League.
Ferencvaros vs Shamrock Betting Tips Predict a Home Win
Ferencvaros started this Champions League season well after knocking out Kazakh Tobol and the Slovakian champion, Slovan Bratislava. But in the third qualifying round, they lost against Quarabag 4-2 on aggregate. The team lost 1-3 at home after a 1-1 draw in the first leg in Kazakhstan. So Fradi can be beaten at home but in their next European game, they will be the big favorites.
According to this fact, online sportsbooks in Hungary offer the odds of 1.47 for the home win. One of the reason for these odds are the team’s squad value which is much higher (€40,35 million) than their opponents (€4,45 million). The Hungarian club has such experienced players as Denes Dibusz and Tokmac Nguen.
Both of them have already appeared in the Europa League and even in the Champions League group stage in the previous seasons. While new incoming players like Adama Traore and Rasmus Thelander also have experience in these leagues. After arriving from Sheriff Tiraspol and Aalborg.
They can all play a key role in the victory along with Aissa Laidouni and Franck Boli with both players scoring twice so far. Home fans will surely hope for a confident win in the first match, and see several Ferencvaros goals. You can make a bet for more than 3 goals in the Ferencvaros vs Shamrock betting tips with the odds of 2.40. But if you think the total will be over 5, the odds are much higher with 9.50.
Can Shamrock Win Away?
Shamrock Rovers have only appeared in the Europa League group stage once before. In the 2011/12 season when they finished at the bottom of their group with 0 points. Since then the club couldn’t reach such highs and it was usually knocked out at an early stage.
This year though Rovers has a big chance of getting to the Europa League following their win against North Macedonian Shkupi. The Irish team won both games and the tie 5-2 on aggregate. Now they will face a much tougher job though against a more experienced team. Online gambling sites in Hungary only offer the odds of 6.30 for their win next week.
But as surely all Irish fans know now, Fradi have already lost two of their home matches in this season. If Rovers forwards Rory Gaffney and Aidomo Emakhu can score again they might get a good result even in Budapest. Richie Towell and substitute Graham Burke also played superbly in the previous game and can be dangerous for the Hungarian goal.
Head coach Stephen Bradley has achieved everything domestically with the club. Now his aim is to add some European success to his list. But the 37-year-old is facing a very experienced manager in Stanislav Cherchesov who has already led several clubs to this stage. Still, the odds for Shamrock’s qualifying after the two games are not bad with 3.46. While Ferencvaros has the odds of 1.28 for the same.
