Russia vs Hungary Prediction & Betting tips
In the first leg on September 6, 2020, Russia won 3-2 away in Hungary. Since then, the Magyars have celebrated two important away wins in Bulgaria and Serbia. The Russians, however, remained without a win in their subsequent two internationals. The chance that the momentum has changed and that the Hungarian national football team will now strike back is definitely there.
However, the bookmakers do not rate this as particularly realistic. In the run-up to the second leg between Russia and Hungary, the odds of the betting providers clearly point towards the home side, according to the odds comparison of the betting base.
After all, the Sbornaja not only qualified successfully for the EM 2021, but failed at the first UEFA Nations League only because of the worse goal difference in promotion to League A. Nonetheless, the Magyars are floating on a wave of momentum that may come to Moscow can be transported.
Since the collapse of the Soviet Union, the Russian national soccer team has only missed the EM 2000 and the three World Cups in 1998, 2006 and 2010. Otherwise, Sbornaja was always part of the game and was even able to convince at the World Cup in its own country.
The hosts made it to the quarter-finals, before the eventual runner-up world champions Croatia only ended up on penalties. Stanislav Cherchesov’s team was able to take the momentum from this tournament with them into the last two years.
In the European Championship qualification, the Russians landed in Group I in second place behind Belgium and thus sovereignly bought the ticket for the next finals. Although both games were lost against the red devils, the Sbornaja clearly won all other eight group games and scored 31 goals.
Also in the Nations League, group B2 with a tie with group winners Sweden achieved a good result, with which it would almost have gone up to league A. Accordingly, the Russians want to attack again in the second round of this competition, for which the course has already been set.
With two wins and one draw, the Russian national soccer team leads group B3 at the Bergfest with one point ahead of today’s guest from Hungary and can once again dream of climbing up to the European heavyweights. But now it has to be followed up against the main pursuer.
In any case, the bookmakers trust the team, which has only called up three legionnaires for this international break and otherwise works with players from the domestic premjer league, to win the home.
The Hungarian national football team, which qualified for a European Championship finals for the first time in 44 years at the EURO 2016 in France and then promptly stormed to the round of 16, failed to qualify again for the European Championship on the first way.
In Group E of the European Championship qualifiers, there was ultimately only a sobering fourth place behind Croatia, Wales and Slovakia, which is primarily due to the lack of offensive penetration. Just eight goals in eight international matches were just enough for four wins. With four defeats that were two points too few for the EM ticket.
The footballers, also known as Magyars, could still travel to the European championship, because as a climber from the Nations League group C2, Hungary received the right to start the playoffs for the European championship.
Last Thursday, Marco Rossi’s men prevailed there in the semi-finals 3-1 in Bulgaria and will be able to play at home against Iceland for another European Championship starting place in November. The Sunday evening revealed that this releases strength. Hungary followed suit in the Nations League, celebrated a 1-0 win in Serbia and climbed to second place in the B3 league.
If the Magyars celebrate a three in Russia, the Hungarian national football team would even climb to first place in the group. The Rossi-Elf can play completely carefree, because after the three in Serbia, the relegation place is five points away with three remaining games. At least the league’s whereabouts should be secured.
Against the background of the two important away wins in a row, we trust the two-time runner-up to be number three in Moscow. We risk the underdog bet in this context and play at Russia vs. Hungary tip 2 with the security “DNB”.
