Ferencvaros will welcome Bayer Leverkusen to the Groupama Arena for a matchday six fixture in the UEFA Europa League.

The home side have already been eliminated entirely from European competition and are the only side in Group G who are yet to register a point. Bayer Leverkusen, by contrast, have secured progress to the knockout round as group winners.

Ferencvaros come into the game on the back of a 1-1 draw with Puskas Academy on home turf in the Hungarian OTP Bank Liga. Aissa Laidouni's first-half strike for the hosts was canceled out by Alexandru Baluta's 50th-minute goal.

Bayer Leverkusen went on a rampage in a 7-1 whitewash of Greuther Furth on home turf in the Bundesliga. Patrick Schick was the star of the show with four goals in the second half.

Ferencvaros vs Bayer Leverkusen Prediction

Bayer Leverkusen are favorites to triumph in the game, despite already having secured top spot in the group. Ferencvaros' home form on the continent does not give much reason for optimism, although games involving the Hungarians tend to be high-scoring affairs.

The visitors have a distinct advantage in quality and we are backing Gerard Seoane's side to secure a comfortable victory.

Prediction: Ferencavros 1-3 Bayer Leverkusen
