Hungary vs Wales, Tuesday’s game for the qualifying round, Group E, for the EURO 2020 Qualifiers, in the Groupama Aréna stadium in Budapest.
Hungary is encouraged for this game after the two consecutive wins over Croatia and Azerbaijan. Hungary playing in their country wants to give supporters another reason to celebrate.
The Hungarians have made good appearances lately, but they still need to keep improving if they want to qualify for the European Championship next year.
Hungary won 3-1 in Azerbaijan in their last match, putting them in the top spot with six points from three games. Marco Rossi’s men, as I said, need to improve, especially in their defense, where Orban and Bolond Barath often show some inconsistency in recent times.
In short, Hungary are in very good shape, and now have an excellent opportunity to consolidate their position in the group.
Wales come to this game after a defeat with Croatia, not surprising, as they played against one of the best European teams. The Welsh have been improving their football in recent times, and under the guidance of Ryan Giggs will want to continue to evolve further.
Wales now has some top-notch players and is no longer that national team that the teams play and expect to win with confidence. The Welsh side has a lot of luck and now they want to take advantage of that and show what they can do during the Euro 2020 qualifiers.
This will be a difficult match, but Wales has something that Hungary does not have, it’s world-class players, as Gareth Bale and Aaron Ramsey are far above the Hungarian players, and that can make a difference.
In short, the general form of Wales is not famous at the moment, with three defeats in the last five games.
I anticipate a game that should have a lot of goals for both teams. Wales needs to control the match after the defeat against Croatia. The story is on the side of the Welsh, but the Hungarians are with high morale. I bet on the success of the Hungarians.
