Tennis Prediction of the Day Espanyol vs Ferencvaros
Although not in the best form in the championship, Espanyol can recover from his fans with a good evolution in the Europa League. Nor did the Catalans face a very formidable opponent, this being Ferencvaros. Hungarians have been poor in the last seasons of European Cups and I am honestly surprised that they qualified in groups. They have won only one of the previous nine trips to the Europa League, in the conditions in which they encountered quite weak opponents.
Bet Tips: 1 and under 4.5 goals
