Competition: European Championships
Market: Bruno Fernandes to score anytime
Odds: 11/4 @ 888sport
Knowing that they must get off to a flying start when they make the trip out to Budapest on Tuesday evening, defending champions Portugal will face off against Hungary.
Starting with the hosts, while Hungary might have continued to gain plenty of rightful plaudits from across the continent over the past eight months, Marco Rossi’s side couldn’t face a tougher test this summer. Securing their spot at this year’s delayed European Championships thanks to a 2-1 win against Iceland back in November, Magyarok now find themselves sharing Group F with the likes of France, Germany and Portugal. Unbeaten in their last 11 matchups across all formats, Hungary did struggle to sign off their preparations with a sluggish 0-0 stalemate against an inconsistent Ireland on home soil last week. Knowing that they need a minor miracle if they’re to somehow secure a route out of Group F this summer, The Reds really face a stern test on Tuesday evening and it should be noted that they have failed to beat their midweek opponents in any of their eight meetings, losing seven of those contests.
As for the visitors, while Portugal were rocked by the news that João Cancelo returned a positive COVID-19 test over the weekend, the defending champions are still tipped as a leading pick to defend their European crown. Last seen signing off their preparations with a thumping 4-0 win against Israel on home soil, The Navigators open their Group F campaign holding what is a string of fearsome attacking options. While Juventus superstar Cristiano Ronaldo will spearhead their charge on Tuesday, it is well worth keeping an eye out for Bruno Fernandes in Budapest. Bagging a brace against Isreal last week and putting in a Man of the Match display, the Manchester United playmaker also enjoyed another hugely impressive campaign at Old Trafford. Now recording 30 goals for club and country throughout the 2020/21 campaign, we’re backing Fernandes to extend on his purple patch in midweek.
Bet: Bruno Fernandes 11/4 to score anytime against Hungary for Tuesday’s European Championship showdown @ 888sport
