Hungary vs Portugal: Prediction and Betting Tips

17:00, Jun 15 2021
Hungary vs Portugal prediction for Tuesday’s Euro 2020 Group F clash at Puskás Aréna in Budapest. 37th on the Fifa world rankings Hungary will host the reigning European champions Portugal in the first round of the Group F matches in  Euro 2020. Follow along for our free prediction and betting tips.

Hungary in an almost impossible task in Group F

It took Hungary 30 years before qualifying for a major tournament in the Euro 2016. Competing in a second consecutive Euro is a success itself as they play in a death Group consisting apart from their opponents, Germany and France.

Coach Marco Rossi will be missing star player Dominik Szoboszlai of RB Leipzig who withdrew from the team due to injury. Hungary had topped their group in the 1st round in euro 2016 which also had Portugal in it before losing to Belgium in the last 16.

Hungary have never beaten Portugal in 13 attempts. They failed to score in five of their last six matches against the Iberian nation. Marco Rossi’s team scored ten goals in three matches in the World Cup qualification matches against weak teams but he hopes his attackers can find a way to surprise the Portuguese defense.

Hungary Key Stats

  • Hungary have scored in four of their last five matches
  • Hungary have clean sheets in three of their last five matches
  • Hungary haven’t beaten Portugal in 13 matches

 

A winning start is a must for Portugal

Cristiano Ronaldo will want to play in most probably his last European Championship of his career by making a good impact. Portugal have a very good team but will face a fierce challenge from two of Europe’s powerhouses in football. It is crucial that coach Fernando Silva’s team have a good start and win their opening match.

One of the main concerns for Santos though is the fact that Portugal have failed to win any of their last five major tournament openers. The Iberians have just one defeat in their last ten matches. They had a good friendly test against Spain ten days ago and drew 0-0. 

Santos has players who were in great form with their clubs like Bruno Fernandez, Bernardo Silva, and of course  Ronaldo who finished as the top-scorer in the Serie A. The coach will rely heavily on this trio in attack in his team’s quest for a winning start to defend their title.

Portugal Key Stats

  • Portugal have scored in seven of their last ten matches
  • Both teams have scored in 30% of Portugal’s games
  • Ronaldo or Bruno Fernandez have scored in two of Portugal’s last five games.

 

Hungary vs Portugal Prediction

To be in the Euro’s should be an overwhelming occasion for Hungary but to play in such a group with three former Euro champions is certainly their most intense task. Hungary don’t have players who can pose danger to Portugal.

Portugal will have to put all their attacking powers to get the three points from this match as they don’t know what to expect from their matches against France and Germany. 

Santos’s team have struggled against teams who play tough and closed defense and Hungary are one of them with an Italian coach who knows everything about defending.

We predict Portugal will score eventually but maybe in low numbers and the total goals in the match will be few as well.
