First leg score: Ferencváros 4-0 Shamrock Rovers
Safe to say, following the first leg in Budapest, Ferencváros are firmly in control of this one.
A week ago, Adama Traoré bagged a brace at Groupama Aréna, while Carlos Auzqui and Eldar Ćivić were also on target in a 4-0 home victory.
So, surely, this second leg in Dublin is a mere formality.
Ferencváros, who’ve now won four successive Hungarian titles, have become UEFA group stage regulars in recent seasons.
The Green Eagles qualified for the Champions League group stages two seasons ago, also featuring in the Europa League in 2019 and last year.
This year, Stanislav Cherchesov’s team beat Tobol and ŠK Slovan Bratislava in the Champions League before falling to Qarabağ.
Baring a complete collapse at Tallaght Stadium, Ferencváros will appear in the Europa League once again.
Shamrock Rovers meantime, obviously, won’t be pleased with a 4-0 first leg defeat, but they’ve already achieved their primary goal.
The Hoops have overcome Hibernians and Shkupi, beaten by Ludogorets Razgrad in-between, so will end their 11-year exile from UEFA group stages.
However this’ll surely come in the Europa Conference League, with Stephen Bradley’s team just looking to rebuild some confidence here.
