Hungary faces Slovakia
Hungary faces Slovakia in a game from Group E of the European qualifications. These two sides will meet each other at the Groupama Arena in Budapest. Let’s take a look in our football tips tonight.
Right now Hungary are second in this group with 9 points, still keeping their chances of qualification for the next European Championship alive. They started their campaign with a loss Slovakia in Trnava, but in the next three matches the Hungarian team enjoyed three consecutive wins.
In their last match Hungary faced Wales in Budapest and achieved a difficult, but crucial 1-0 win over the Dragons. The only goal in the game was scored just 10 minutes before the end when Mate Patkai put the ball behind Wayne Hennessey’s back.
In Hungary they are aware that a win over Slovakia will mean a huge step towards Euro 2020. That’s why Marco Rossi and his boys are very motivated to do the job and make this step.
Slovakia on the other hand have no choice here – they must win in order to keep their chances again. In their last game the Falcons hosted the group’s leader in Trnava and suffered a very tough 0-4 defeat from the World Cup finalists. Pavel Hapal’s team was totally dominated by the visitors in this match, so what Slovakia must do now is forget about this result as soon as possible and find a way to respond to what’s happened.
At halftime it was 0-0 between Slovakia and Croatia, but the visitors scored two quick goals in the first two minutes of the second half. Nikola Vlasic and Ivan Perisic put the ball behind Martin Dubravka’s back, which made the hosts’ task really complicated. Until the end of the match Croatia finished their rivals with two more goals from Petkovic and Lovren.
In our football tips tonight we believe that this game is pretty difficult for prediction. Both teams are on a similar level of quality, but Hungary have the home advantage here. Let’s see.
