Újpest FC will be hoping for a better result following a 3-0 Nemzeti Bajnokság I loss in their previous game against Diósgyõri VTK.
Újpest FC have really struggled up front in recent times. Their ‘goals for’ figure equals just 4 vs opposing sides over their last 6 outings. In those games, Lilák have also seen the number of goals against them total 15. It will be interesting to see if that trend will end up being sustained in this game.
After being beaten in their last game against Kisvárda in Nemzeti Bajnokság I action, Zalaegerszegi TE will be hoping to turn things around here.
The only scorer from Zalaegerszegi TE was Márk Koszta (64'). Fernando Viana (11') and Jaroslav Navrátil (51') scored for Kisvárda.
Showing their fondness for fruitful encounters, we’ve had goals 24 times in the last 6 matches in which Zalaegerszegi TE have played, making it an average of 4 goals each meeting. Opposing teams have managed 14 from this total.
Coming into this fixture, Zalaegerszegi TE have not won against Újpest FC when they've played them away from home in the last 7 league matches. Not good at all.
