Team News: Puskás Akadémia
Puskás Akadémia boss Zsolt Hornyák has zero fitness concerns at all ahead of this game owing to a completely healthy group to choose from.
Team News: Mezőkövesd
From a largely available group, there’s just the one fitness problem for the Mezőkövesd gaffer Attila Pintér to be concerned with. Luka Lakvekheliani (Knee Injury) won’t be in action.
Looking at these two teams, we feel that Mezőkövesd will have to perform well to break down this Puskás Akadémia outfit who we reckon should end up scoring and staying ahead.
We’re therefore tipping a good battle with a 1-0 victory for Puskás Akadémia when all is said and done.
Should be an interesting one.
