After long years of absence from the international competitions, both Espanyol and Ferencvaros returned to it with the group stages of UEFA Europa League. The rebound for Espanyol came after 12 years but for the Hungarian side, it was a 15 years period.

Ferencváros started the game pretty well, they were even able to grab the lead in the 10th which put a big challenge ahead of the home side. Espanyol struggled to break down the away team defensive organisation, therefore, the guests preserved the advantage for the second half. The clash ended with a 1-1 draw due to Matías Vargas equaliser.

This tactical analysis will showcase the crucial tactics for both sides.
