Mezőkövesd have really struggled up front in more recent games. Their sum of goals equals just 4 against opposition teams during their previous 6 outings. In those meetings, Mezőkövesd have also seen the tally of goals against them total 13.

- have not beaten MTK Budapest in their previous 2 league matches.
- haven’t won at home in the past 2 league games.
After a losing effort in their last game against Videoton FC in Nemzeti Bajnokság I action, MTK Budapest and their travelling fans will hope for a better result here.
The only name on the scoresheet from MTK Budapest was Tiago Ferreira (89'). Nemanja Nikolić (18'), Budu Zivzivadze (75') and Lyes Houri (82') scored for Videoton FC.
The stats don’t lie, and MTK Budapest have been scored against in 5 of their last 6 matches, letting opponents get 11 goals in all. In defence, MTK certainly have room for improvement. That sort of trend isn’t assured to be carried forward into this next game, however.
Going into this one, MTK Budapest have not been beaten by Mezőkövesd in games played away from home for the previous 2 league matches.

Team News: Mezőkövesd
There’s just one fitness concern for the Mezőkövesd boss Attila Pintér to contend with from a near full-strength set of players. Luka Lakvekheliani (Knee Injury) won’t play.
Team News: MTK Budapest
Due to a mostly full-strength squad, there is only the one fitness issue for the MTK Budapest boss Michael Boris to be concerned about. Myke (Cruciate Ligament Rupture) won’t be in action.
We’re inclined to think that MTK Budapest will really need to work well to breach the defence of this Mezőkövesd side who will likely score at least once to put them ahead.
We therefore think that it’s going to be a very even match with a 1-0 advantage for Mezőkövesd at the end of this one.
Hoping for a good game.
