Larvik vs Ferencvaros by 20Legend
Larvik has the huge pressure on their shoulders as they have to win this game if their hopes of a place among top two should still live tonight. A loss could mean that a huge test is coming up for them as they then have to get a point against Loiret next weekend in order to proceed from the group stage. They got a nice build-up though after take a smashing 32-18 win against Vipers in the Norwegian league during mid-week.
The Hungarian side Ferencvarosi got themselves a very strong point against the top team Rostov Don last weekend. After giving all their best in order to hang in with the visitors, Ferencvarosi managed to get a draw in front of their own fans. That point secured them a great position ahead of the final matches in the group stage as they now own the 2nd place at the table. However, it is so close in this group that a loss tonight could make them go down into 4th place if they are unlucky enough.
The last meetings between these two teams ended with a 30-27 win to Ferencvarosi, which is a great advantage for tonight’s guests. The reason is that they probably can afford a defeat by three goals tonight and still be ahead of Larvik due to mutual settlement. It is impossible not to keep Larvik as the favorites at their home stadium, as Ferencvarosi also enjoys playing at home more than away. However, the over 52.5 goals seems really interesting tonight. The visitor is the highest-scoring team in this year’s CL so far, while their defensive work has not been at the same level. It should therefore mean a lot of space for a creative Larvik side that has to take advantage of. Over 52.5 goals will be my pick.
