Tip Barcelona - Ferencvarosi TC
After 25 years Ferencvaros managed to qualify for the Champions League group stages, and they will have a tough opening, a Group G away game to Barcelona. Ferencvaros, from Hungary will be hoping to upset one of the most successful clubs in football and warmed up well for this game, with win in their domestic league. Meanwhile, Barcelona had a bad outing, losing 1-0 to Getafe in La Liga, failing to win for their second straight game and they will need this break. The Catalans are on a rebuilding phase following a poor campaign last season, and after a good showing in their opening two matches, their form has dipped in the last two, conceding in both and failing to score in one. In their last Champions League game, they were handed a humiliating 8-2 beating by Bayern Munich at the quarter finals and with this memory still clear, they will want to give this campaign a strong start. They have no clean sheet in their last five Champions League matches while the last 10 have produced just two. However, they have scored in seven of their last 10 Champions League games and in four of the last five they have scored two or more. At home, in the Champions League, Barcelona are unbeaten in 36 matches and failed to score in just two of these, while winning 32 and keeping 18 clean sheets.
This will easily pass as one of Ferencvaros’ biggest moments in history, as they mark a return to the top European competition. The Hungarian side saw off Norwegian side Molde in the playoffs to secure their place and a reward for that was a place in a group that also has Juventus and Dynamo Kyiv. The Hungarians know it will not be easy, and they will definitely get a picture of that when they tour Camp Nou. They registered a 2-0 away win over Kisvarda in their domestic league, making it 11 unbeaten matches and that form will be crucial for them here. Away in Norway, in the first leg of their clash with Molde, Ferencvaros conceded thrice as it ended 3-3 and at home they only had to defend well. They did that and got this ticket but for a team used to playing the weak sides, and in the qualification stages, it will not be lost on them the task ahead. They have three wins in nine away Champions League matches and none of the last eight has produced a clean sheet, while they have scored in seven of the nine. To make it this far, Ferencvaros eliminated a few top sides, including Dinamo Zagreb and Celtic in a run that has seen the team go unbeaten in five straight matches in Europe; they had straight wins in the opening three before finally drawing home and away with Molde.

Conclusion Barcelona - Ferencvarosi TC
Ferencvaros have come this far after starting their Champions League campaign back in August. They did well in the qualifiers but the real job lies ahead, having landed in one of the tough groups. They have no clean sheet in their last eight away matches in the Champions League and here they face a giant in the competition, away. Barcelona are way above the quality of opposition Ferencvaros have faced so far, and though Barca have struggled lately, the quality of opposition has been top too. Barcelona has a splendid run at home in the Champions League and that will definitely come to play here. They are unbeaten in 36 home matches in the Champions League, winning 32 and keeping 18 clean sheets. Barcelona have scored two or more goals in four of their last five Champions League matches and added to their home form and playing one of the lowest ranked in this season’s competition, we are backing the Spaniards for a comfortable outing. We will go with a 3-0 win for Barcelona.
