Although the real cup final atmosphere was far away, the voices of the spectators sitting in the lower arms of the Puskás Arena still threw a lot on the clash, especially compared to the closed goalie matches used due to the coronavirus epidemic.

As expected, the people of Fehérvár controlled the game, Újpest was almost busy defending. The two teams produced an extremely weak first half with a single shot, though Ivan Petrjak’s attempt was so bad that even a home run was weak.

The match improved for the second half

For the second half, the pace and the game also improved somewhat, there could have been a great opportunity before Újpest, but the referee did not give the penalty against Junior Tallo, which seemed clear to the naked eye. The Újpest small bench players also lost their heads, after the incident Jovan Baosic, who threw an object on the field, received a red card, and then head coach Michael Oenning received a yellow card.

The sequel did not bring any situations either, but at the same time the clash was much more combative, culminating in an extension. The addition to the people of Fehérvár had already started at a human disadvantage, as Adrián Rus received his second yellow card in the 90th minute. Head coach Imre Szabics replaced Alef before the addition, but the Brazilian midfielder collected two yellows in one minute, so he could take a shower after only seven minutes, and the people of Fehérvár stayed with nine people. Újpest attacked the people of Fehérvár playing in a double human disadvantage with great momentum and changed the headcount to a goal in just four minutes.

In the second half of the addition, Újpest could have easily decided the meeting, but a mistake slipped into the attacks, but the people of Fehérvár could no longer get into the situation.

Prior to that, Újpest was undefeated in eight betting matches against the people of Fehérvár, who were last defeated in September 2019. In the current league season, MOL Fehérvár FC beat the purple-whites 5-1, 5-0 and 4-0.

Újpest won the trophy again after 2018, and in general it triumphed for the 11th time. With its success, Újpest can start in the first competition of the Conference League. Most likely, MOL Fehérvár FC will also join him as the second or third in the league, as the fourth Paks only has a mathematical chance to overtake it at the end of the OTP Bank League this weekend.
