Wales Prediction – Can Wales claim top two finish?

After a shaky start to their Euro 2020 qualifying campaign, Wales will now be preparing for arguably their biggest match for some time when they face-off against Hungary for the right to join group winners, Croatia, who have already qualified for next year’s tournament.

Wales collected just 1 win from their opening 3 matches in Group E with a 1-0 home win against Slovakia but back-to-back defeats away from home at Croatia 2-1 and Hungary 1-0 set the hosts back in their plans for qualification.

However, Ryan Giggs’ side have bounced back by putting together a 4-match unbeaten sequence which has placed them back in the frame for a coveted top two finish having beaten Azerbaijan home and away along with picking up valuable points in draws with Slovakia and Croatia.

Even more impressive is Wales’s form on home soil in Euro qualifiers where the hosts are unbeaten in their last 10 matches which consists of 7 wins and 3 draws along with keeping 6 clean sheets in the process.

Hungary Prediction – Can Hungary break Welsh hearts?

Currently sitting in 2nd place but 5 points behind Croatia and holding a slender 1-point lead over their Tuesday night’s hosts, Wales, Hungary face a bit of a dilemma – do they twist or stick? A draw would send Wales into a play-off but with Slovakia expected to beat bottom nation Azerbaijan, a point wouldn’t be enough for Hungary to qualify.

It’s therefore a winner-takes-all scenario at the Principality Stadium which may well favour Wales more than Hungary here as the visitors currently possess an away record of 1-0-2 3/6 while the bigger picture shows that Hungary have posted mixed results on their travels.

Wins at Faroe Islands, Finland, Norway and Azerbaijan have been offset by defeats at Greece, Slovakia and Croatia, but perhaps the biggest indication to the outcome of this clash lies in previous encounters as Hungary have failed to beat Wales in their previous 4 visits away from home.

These last 4 meetings in Wales’s own backyard have resulted in 3 wins and a draw for Tuesday night’s hosts so Wales appear to hold the edge here.


Key-Facts – Wales vs Hungary

  • Wales are unbeaten in their last 10 Euro qualifiers at home
  • Wales have won 7 of their last 10 Euro qualifiers at home
  • Wales are unbeaten in the previous 4 meetings at home against Hungary


Betting Tips Verdict

Wales with home advantage could just shade this one to progress through to next season’s tournament.
