OTP Bank League: Title-Holder Ferencváros Trash Diósgyőr In Eight-Goal Thriller – Video!

Tamás Székely 2016.08.01.

Although Ferencváros said an unexpectedly early fairwell to Europe this season, last year’s Hungarian champions still seem unstoppable in the dometic league. The Budapest green-whites turned their last game into a goal-fest at the Groupama Aréna, thrashing an in-form Diosgyőr 6-2 to maintain their 100% record so far this campaign.

German midfielder Florian Trinks opened the scoring in the 33rd minute with a 20-metre effort into the bottom-left corner of the net following Austrian forward Marco Djuricin’s left-wing cross. Leandro’s 51-minute free-kick extended Fradi’s lead and that opened the floodgates, four more goals coming for the hosts in the remaining time courtesy of Djuricin twice, Emir Dilaver and veteran playmaker Zoltán Gera.

Former Ferencváros forward Ferenc Horváth is in charge of Diosgyőr and he will at least be glad to see his team show some spirit towards the end, Diego Vela and Márk Tamás registering in the last 12 minutes to at least give a semblance of respectability to the final score of 6-2.
