Hungary – Russia: Which Choice to Make?
Russia has never lost to Hungary, but will the tradition continue on September 6 – we have prepared our forecast. What is the optimal rate?
The Hungarian national team in the last draw of the League of Nations had no outstanding success – then the national team found itself in the company of Finland, Greece and Estonia. It was not possible to win the group – Finland unexpectedly turned out to be the first, the “magic Magyars” lost two points to her, but at the same time they managed to move to League “B”.
In the qualification of the European Championship, Marco Rossi’s team played frankly poorly – in the group with Croatia, Slovakia and Azerbaijan, no success was achieved. The Hungarians finished on the fourth line, having managed to outstrip only Azerbaijan, but the second Wales scored only two points more, so that everything was essentially decided by the 0: 2 defeat from the Welsh in the last round.
In the first match of the League of Nations of the current season, Hungary created a small sensation – away with a score of 1: 0, it managed to beat Turkey, thus the Hungarians were in second place in the table.
The Russian national team , like its current rival, did not have success in the last League of Nations, losing the first line to Sweden. However, for this failure, Stanislav Cherchesov’s team was completely rehabilitated in qualification for the European Championship – the Russians could not beat Belgium the first line, but they got a ticket to the tournament.
In 10 qualifying matches, Russia scored eight victories, losing twice to the Belgians, gaining the right to play in the continental tournament. In the new draw of the League of Nations, Russia found itself in the same group with Hungary, Serbia and Turkey. In the first round, they managed to beat Serbia 3: 1 at home – the victory allowed the Russians to immediately be on the first line in the table, but the whole struggle for leadership is still ahead.
The teams played each other five times and Hungary did not win in any of these matches – four defeats and a draw
Russia has won nine wins in the last 10 matches
Hungary have not conceded in two of their last four home games
Russia conceded just one goal in the last four away games
06/05/17 Hungary Russia 0: 3
The Hungarian national team won a victory over Turkey in the last round, the Rossi team did not have a global superiority, the initiative passed from hand to hand, three points brought a free kick. Russia played much more confidently against Serbia, fully justifying the status of a favorite, Cherchesov’s team is experienced and well-played, the Russians can definitely be considered a favorite.
However, Hungary will not give up without a fight, the hosts play quite confidently in defense, and the Russians will have to seriously try to score points.
In our opinion, the guests will take points in a bitter struggle. We offer a combined forecast – Russia will not lose + total under 3.5 goals . In Betting League this outcome is offered with odds of 1.67
