Anzhi Makhachkala – Honved 19.07.2012
The team that comes from the Russian Premier League has managed to get hold of this competition as they finished the season in the national league table of five place, given that this is the first time that this team was on the European competition is expected to start very offensive to leave a better impression in the first leg.
Home team in their ranks very high quality players like Samuel Eto’o, Chris Samba, Yuri Zhirkov and Mbark Boussoufa so expect this match to do the routine with a large number of possible goals. Coach Guus Hiddink in this game comes not just prepared for this meeting will not have Chris Samba who is still recovering but will most likely be on the bench while it will replace a new player, Lacina Traore who is certainly a strong side of this team.
Honved team was far from impressive last season, but somehow they managed to get hold of the European competition as they finished in fourth place just above the sixth placed team Pecsi which is only one point behind.
A very bad financial situation that has befallen the club, led to the fact that they had to forgive a few key players such as: Sorin Botis, Hajdu Norbert, Norbert Nemeth and main striker Danilo so it is reasonable to expect a very poor setup in this game. The team is enrolled Honved double victory over the Albanian team Flamurtari in the first qualifying round, but the team was in these meetings showed enormous weaknesses so that they were quite happy winning majoring in these duels.
