Ferencvarosi begin another campaign in the qualifying stage of the UEFA Champions League as they travel to Ki Klaksvik for a first-round clash on Tuesday.

Magne Hoseth’s men will also take confidence from the 3-1 victory over Bodo/Glimt in the home leg of last season's competition, although a heavy defeat in the first meeting meant they did not progress beyond the first round.
