UCL: FTC vs Juve

The match between David and Goliath, it is unlikely that Rebrov's Fradi team will have difficulty against the strength and depth of the Juventus team, because Pirlo teachers and students can comfortably return to the race for the knockout round.

Bosnian defender Eldar Civic is suspected for the big night of Ferencvaros and Albania international Myrto Uzuni is still absent when he isolates himself after a positive COVID-19 test. Tokmac Nguen and Brazilian striker Isael da Silva Barbosa are expected to lead the attack for the home team, although Gremio's man Isael has yet to score a single goal in 36 appearances in Europe since 2014. The Hungarian club's greatest moment in European football was when Jozsef Meszaros's side lifted the Intercity Cup after Mate Fenyvesi's second-half header resulted in an overall victory. -0 before the Bianconeri in Turin, in June 1965. Such glories have been few and far between in recent decades. Now, having won the 31st league title - and 2 in a row - in the 2019-20 season, Ferencvaros made only his second appearance in the Champions League group stage, the last in 1995-96. Serhiy Rebrov's side are unbeaten in their last six home games in Europe but lack experience at this rare level; Only 2 members of the team have played in the Champions League before - Robert Mak (twice as a substitute for Zenit in the 2019-20 season) and Oleksandr Zubkov (1 for Shakhtar Donetsk). Brazilian midfielder Somalia - currently in his second game at the club - scored as Fradi equalized 1-1 against closest rival Fehervar, helping them topped the group in the country with 1 point . It was after Dynamo Kiev's visit last Wednesday, when Franck Boli's final equalizer yielded a 2-2 result, shortly after Rebrov's former club was reduced to 10.

At the weekend, Ronaldo re-exported their match on the bench - scoring 2 goals to help Juventus to a 4-1 win against Spezia - was well received. Ronaldo took only 3 minutes to find the net, after which Federico Chiesa was awarded the penalty that the former Real Madrid and Manchester United player converted to Panenka style. In his absence, Dejan Kulusevski, who spent last season on loan at Parma, came to the fore to score a fantastic equalizer last weekend for Verona. He was dropped on the bench over the weekend, so after just one brief appearance could there be plenty of energy in reserve for the Bianconeri's midweek mission. Juventus defenders Matthijs de Ligt and Alex Sandro will return to play after the international break, because they weren't ready for the first team mission yet. The former Ajax player underwent shoulder surgery in August and is currently only in contactless training, while Alex Sandro's longtime thigh injury continues. Merih Demiral is suspended, so Danilo will be paired with ex-Giorgio Chiellini and Leonardo Bonucci in Andrea Pirlo's defender trio.
