MOL Vidi vs DVTK
Hungary, OTP Bank Liga, Round 22
Videoton will host DVTK. IMO there are plenty reasons to believe in home win here.
Videoton is one of best teams there, I would say they are far above Hungarian level. After all they have in it's squad even nine foreign players, mainly from ex Yugoslavia region including three Serbs, Danko Lazovic as well Scepovic brothers, Stefan and Marko.
Last season Videoton end up as runner-up, they came just short behind Honved while this time they are in championship race with Ferencvaros.
Ferencvaros has finished the first part of the season with three points more than Videoton. Both teams have won the opening games after the winter break. But Ferencvaros has lost last time on the road in second round after the winter break. The points difference remained the same cause Videoton's match was postponed due to frozen pitch. But Videoton now has that one game in their hands.
Postponed game last time means Videoton now is entering this match vs DVTK with two weeks break and IMO head coach Marko Nikolic was in great position to prepare it's team. BTW, it very good coach in question who last season in Serbia made great success by winning with Partizan both trophies, League and Cup.
I know Videoton very well. I was following them especially after early in the season they got exactly Partizan as opponent in the Europa League qualifications. So I watched Videoton in qualifications against some low quality team from Malta but I watched them also in two legs when they have eliminated French Bordeaux which was amazing success. Of course I saw them in two games against Partizan as well few times in the domestic league. IMO Nikolic is doing good job.
As for DVTK, they have had less time before this game. Plus it was very tough match for them in previous round. Namely they are the one who beat Ferencvaros as I mentioned above. It was 2:1 win at home and after second half comeback.
So, they made a favor to Videoton by beating Ferencvaros but today IMO on Pancho Arena no chance for DVTK.
The first mutual game of the season between DVTK and Videoton ended with Videoton 2:3 road win and it's interesting that was also a game with second half comeback.
In last round vs Ferencvaros, DVTK has remained without Dušan Brkovic who earned a red card late in the match and thus won't play today. By the available info, he is not the only one. Namely, the team of DIOSGYORI VTK has several absent players for today's game. Liptak and Kocsis are suspended too.
During the winter break this team from the mid standings changed it's squad a little bit. Kosovan Hasani, Shestakov and mentioned Brkovic arrived while Olah Balint, Nono, Nemes and Kitl all left the club.
For the end it's worth to mention that Videoton is definitely the strongest team there in the financial aspect. Namely the most powerful man in the country, the Prime Minister iof Hungary, Viktor Orban is big fan of this team. That being said, very often you can see in vip seats joining him many rich businessmans including the chairman of the OTP Bank and the main main of the Hungarian football organisation. Because of that there are rumors how Videoton is helped by the referees from time to time when it's necessary. I don't think it will be necessary today. IMO this is clear home win.
