Odds: 4/11 @ 888sport

Looking to gain some real momentum heading into this summer’s European Championships, Hungary will welcome Cyprus to Budapest on Friday night.

Starting with the hosts, last seen when back in March landing themselves a thumping 4-1 win away at Andorra, Hungary have continued to shine heading into the summer. Opening up this year’s delayed Championships with a mouthwatering showdown against defending champions Portugal on June 15th, Magyarok should be confident of extending on their recent momentum this weekend. Mustering seven points from their opening three World Cup qualifying contests, including an eye-catching 3-3 draw against Poland, Head Coach Marco Rossi finds his side enjoying an extended nine-match unbeaten run, a run that stems all the way back to September. Still boosted by their rampant form in the Nations League and landing victories against the likes of Serbia in doing so, it is well worth keeping an eye out for Hungary on Friday.

As for the visitors, although Cyprus might have just about managed to scrape a shock 1-0 win against Slovenia back in March, The Blues have rather drastically struggled with their form over the past two years. With just a pair of wins to their name since October 2019 and enduring a torrid run in the Nations League, Head Coach Nikos Kostenoglou has seen his squad gain a reputation for their continued issues on foreign soil. Including a dreadful 4-0 drumming away at Montenegro last year, Cyprus have failed to win any of their last six straight contests on the road, losing five of those appearances. Losing each of their three previous meetings against Friday’s hosts and facing a stern test in Budapest, we’re backing a routine home victory for a high-flying Hungary.
