Hungary (@2.55) vs Slovakia (@2.62)

Our Prediction:

Hungary will win

Hungary – Slovakia Match Prediction | 09-09-2019 14:45

The Slovaks failed to impress in the UEFA Nations League, with the team finishing the process in last position in Group 1 and, no doubt, they are eager to make amends for the unsuccessful campaign. In their last meeting in Slovakia the hosts emerged triumphant and we believe that the history is going to repeat itself. City Arena Trnava will host Thursdays Euro 2020 qualifier between Slovakia and Hungary. Marek Hamsik is still considered the teams key player and all eyes will be on the Napoli ace when the two sides face each other at City Arena Trnava. Slovakia crushed Ukraine 4-1 in their last home game, which is surely giving fans a reason for optimism ahead of the visit of Hungary. The Hungarians, on the other hand, were producing fine performances in the UEFA Nations League, but Slovakia are likely to pose a much bigger threat for them than their previous rivals.

We therefore think that at least one goal will be scored by the Hungarians. The Slovaks tend to have the better cards for a win. Slovakia have not lost in four matches against the Magyars. This means that in the duel between Slovakia and Hungary we would not tip for an away win, especially as the Hungarians have not won in the last eight appearances. Pavel Hapal will therefore have to form a new back four. However, some regular players, especially on the defensive, have announced their resignation. Whether this presents itself recorded, but is somewhat questionable.

The bottom line is that in the duel between Slovakia and Hungary we would take advantage of the betting odds on both teams to score. We assume that this should also be the case against the Hungarians. The fact that the Slovaks also scored a goal also seems relatively clear, because in the last twelve home games, the hawks could always celebrate at least one goal.

Predicted Lineups

It feels they will now need more despite seeing out a thriller 3-3 draw in Estonia last time out, as Slovakia promise a rock-solid challenge at City Arena Trnava. Pavel Hapals men have been more unpredictable lately and come into the match on the back of a November loss to Czech Republic (1-0), which saw them drop out of Nations League B.

The bottom line is that the Magyars in the incipient EM qualification but probably only outsiders, even if they may already be able to counteract this role on Thursday in Trnava. Before the game between Slovakia and Hungary odds of over 5.00 are offered on a success of the Magyars. For more than 30 years the Hungarians have been following the music in international football, even though they qualified for the European Championships in France in 2016. Hungarian football is currently only second- to third-rate, although there are some players who certainly have international class. With keeper Peter Gulacsi and center-back Willi Orban coach Marco Rossi are at least two players from RB Leipzig available that can guarantee stability. But we are unlikely to see Hungary win away, because in the last eight away games there has not been a single triplet. Therefore, the motto will probably be to be safe in the back.

Slovakia was a part of the League B, in the UEFA Nations League, whereas Hungary took place in the League C. And with Hungary misfiring in several of their away ties, its something definitely to look forward to for the hosts. Theres simply no time or game to waste. Every match counts, and so does every goal. Besides the different classification in quality, Slovakia has the home advantage to rely on.

Everything indicates that the coach can count on all the usual players. In this match against Slovakia, coach Marco Rossi must act in the usual 4-3-3, privileging a possession football from the first minute. dn Szalai, player of the Hoffenheim, will be the most offensive reference of the Hungarian national team, being very powerful and effective at the time of finishing. Hungary leaves for this game with a triumph, 2-0, in the reception to Finland, adding the second consecutive victory, both for the League of Nations.

In their last 8 away matches Hungary has 2 draws and 6 losses. In 15 games, he never got the comeback in the 9 games in which he suffered the first goal. The team has conceded goals in 8 of the last 10 matches, so their defense needs to improve, but their attack has scored regularly, since they have scored goals in 7 of the last 10 matches. In their last match, for the UEFA Nations League, they got a home win against Finland by (2-0). This is a team that usually makes good use of the home advantage, stronger with the help of its supporters, since in the last 30 matches they register 3 wins, 4 draws and 8 losses in away matches, with 16 goals scored and 24 conceded; against 7 wins and 8 losses at their stadium, with 20 goals scored and 21 conceded. The visiting team had direct access to this group stage, so they will play their first match in this edition of the competition.
