Ferencvaros will face Vasas SC in Hungarian Cup Round of 16 today, on Wednesday the 9th of February. The match will take place at Illovszky Rudolf Stadion in Budapest. Kick-off at 20:00 CET.
Vasa is one of Hungary's major sports clubs. Vasas FC has won the Hungarian League six times and Hungarian Cup four times. Vasas is known internationally for reaching the semi-finals of the 1957–58 European Cup season, the quarter-finals in the 1967–68 European Cup season, and for being the most successful club in the Mitropa Cup with 6 championships. Vasas is currently taking position 2 in the 2nd Hungarian League - Nemzeti Bajnokság II.
"We watched the last match won by Vasa 4-1 (in away match against Csakvar). It was a good match. Vasas is a good team but we are prepared for it. As we are playing a cup match on Wednesday we cannot make a mistake as a single match will decide which of two teams will be promoted to the next round. The Hungarian Cup is a good opportunity for us to get another trophy. Cup matches always have a special atmosphere around them. I hope there is a full house in the stadium and Fradi will perform at its best", said Cherchesov to the official website of Ferencvaros before the match.
