It’s a massive game in the context of Group E as Hungary will be looking to put six points between themselves and a Slovakian team who are wounded after losing heavily to Croatia.

Hungary Preview – Can Hungary continue strong start to qualification and go clear of opponents in race for second?

When losing 2-0 in the reverse of this fixture in their opening game back in March, Hungary had to respond and they have done that. Three straight wins have put them into a really strong position at the halfway mark. An excellent 2-1 win at home to Croatia just a few days later demonstrated an excellent attitude and the desire that exists within this squad. The international break in June continued their recovery with a good 3-1 win in Azerbaijan and an important 1-0 victory at home to Wales. They had to watch on last Friday as the other four teams in the group done battle. It would have been a pleasing enough set of results as Hungary maintained their place in second. Coach Marco Rossi will be aware of the challenge that awaits his players in the next four games.

Qualification remains in their own hands and that would become even closer if they could reel of their fourth straight win in this section. Not only would it keep them in second but it would also move them six points clear of their opponents with tree games to go. That would give them something of a cushion before traveling to face leaders Croatia at the start of next month. They’re in a good position at the moment to make their second successive European Championship finals.

Hungary to win 2-0


Slovakia Preview – Are the Slovakians capable of bouncing back after their humbling home defeat to Croatia?

The Slovaks come into this game on something of a recovery mission after a desperately disappointing loss at home to Croatia on Friday. They would not have been under any illusions of how difficult a match they were in store for but to lose 4-0 at home was unacceptable. Slovakia are traditionally very strong at home and would also have taken confidence from the fact Croatia had lost in Hungary earlier in the campaign. Pavel Hapal now has to pick his players up going into a game they cannot afford to lose. The coach would have been concerned at the second half collapse where his team conceded three goals. Unsurprisingly, it was their heaviest defeat since 2005 and their biggest home loss in 20 years.

The positives in this group for Slovakia are that they are still very much in touch in terms of the top two. Their other win in this group to go along with the defeat of Hungary was a 5-1 win away to Azerbaijan. They finish their campaign at home to that opponent but have three massive games before then, starting with this. Slovakia then travel to Croatia before hosting Wales. It’s likely they will need a minimum of seven points in their remaining games to finish above Hungary.

Key-Facts – Hungary v Slovakia

Hungary v Slovakia Betting Advice

There wouldn’t have been many who would have predicted the current situation in Group E after that opening win for Slovakia. Since then, Hungary have been faultless and deservedly take their place in second spot. For their opponents, it’s been a really stuttering campaign so far and that lack of consistency has been their undoing. It is something that will have to change of they wish to get back into contention and seal a top two finish.

Hungary have shown that they can beat their rivals on a regular basis having won at home to both Wales and Croatia. Slovakia also fall into that category and if they can make it three from three at home they will be confident of qualification. It’s now five straight home wins for the Hungarians and they look good value to make that six.
