NB1 round 4 preview

Three weeks into the new season and we already have a surprise at the top of the table. Tamás Bódog’s Diósgyor have started the season in fine fashion to set the early pace in the league. Also, last season’s second half whipping boys Mezokövesd started brightly before falling hard to Ferencváros at the weekend. Roland Varga is on a roll with four goals for Fradi and Újpest have had déjà vu three weeks in a row as their newly-assembled...

NB1 – round 32 review

What a weekend in NB1 as both Honvéd and Videoton won their games meaning the league is perfectly poised for the most dramatic of finishes. The two pacesetters will play a title showdown in the last ever match at Boszik Stadion on Saturday which is likely to even dim the enthusiasm of another little match down the road at the same time.
