Ferencvaros enter Groupama Arena for a match against opponents Celtic this coming Thursday. They are entering the final stretch of the Europa League group stages this fall as we have reached the fourth round.
Ferencvaros are not exactly pulling up trees when it comes to goals at present, hitting the target 1.3 times on average in previous Europa League matches. At least they do not concede much either, with an average of 1.1 goals against. Celtic will hope to match the latter number on Thursday when they enter the match as favourites.
Celtic enter the Europa League as big outsiders for actually winning the title, when once again going up against the big guns. However, getting through to the knock-out round is not beyond their capabilities, should they gain a bit of momentum.

Man of the Moment
Ferencvaros are banking on Ryan Mmaee to bring his A-game to the table as he has in recent matches in which he claimed 2 goals in 6 outings. Kyogo Furuhashi arrives at the Euro 2020 very keen to continue the momentum he has build up in his last 6 internationals for Celtic. Scoring 3 goals in half a dozen matches is a decent output.
