Everything will be known on Thursday when Videoton play Partizan in the second leg at the Pancho Arena. Hopefully the team will crown what has been a fantastic run over the summer in Europe with a place in the group stages. The two sides drew 0-0 in the first leg in Belgrade last Thursday. If Vidi can make it through to the group stages, that would guarantee a further six European games over the autumn.

The big game with Partizan is not the only key match of the week for the first team. Another big match lies ahead on Sunday when Ferencvaros visit the Pancho Arena in Felcsut. FTC are unbeaten going into the game with two wins and four draws from their opening six games. That sees them in third place one position behind Vidi who have played one game less.
