scotland-v-hungary-prediction scotland-v-hungary-prediction

This match is a fascinating one because, depending on how the other groups go, one of these teams could be victorious here and go through to the Last 16 of Euro 2024. The 4 best placed 3rd place teams out of 6 will book a place in the last 16, and as it stands Scotland are one of these 4 teams. They currently have 1 point and are the 3rd best 3rd place team as it stands. They will more than likely need to win this game, as a draw may not be enough to get to the last 16. Hungary currently sit on 0 points after defeat on matchday 1 to Switzerland 3-1, and they lost 2-0 to host country Germany on matchday 2. The match takes place on Sunday, 23rd June at 20:00 GMT in Stuttgart Arena. Both these teams have quality in their ranks and are both captained by Liverpool players, with Scotland captained by Andrew Robertson and Hungary captained by Dominik Szoboszlai. This match will be full of intrigue due to the knockout nature of this group game, the loser will be out of the European championships and the winners will most likely be one of the 4 best placed 3rd place teams and book their place in the last 16 of Euro 2024. Who will get the win, and how have Ireland’s best betting sites priced the potential match outcomes?

Scotland vs Hungary Euro Prediction

Both sides will understand the importance of this game. The team that is victorious in this one will most likely book their place in the last 16 of the European championships. Before the tournament started, this group looked like the top 2 would be Germany and Hungary, especially after Hungary’s performance in Euro 2020, but this has not materialised for Marco Rossi’s team. A victory here for Hungary can extinguish their poor start if it means they have a place in the last 16, which would have obviously been the goal at the start of the tournament. Scotland came into this tournament as massive underdogs even though they had a good qualifying campaign that included a shock 2-0 over Spain. Scotland had a poor Euro 2020, losing 2-0 to Czechia, 3-1 to Croatia and drawing 0-0 with England, meaning they finished bottom of their group. They will not want history to repeat itself with a defeat against Hungary, meaning they will finish bottom of their group with the same record of 2 defeats and 1 draw. They performed well against Switzerland but found it hard to deal with their attacking quality, especially Xherdan Shaqiri and Breel Embolo. Kieran Tierney went off with a hamstring injury and he will be a big loss in defence. They play 3 at the back, and he is the one player in that back 3 who has the recovery pace to deal with the attacking threats that will be seen by Hungary, especially their captain Dominik Szoboszlai. For this reason, I am going with a Hungary win, but I think it will be an attacking and goal-scoring game due to the benefits that a victory will give each of these teams.

💯 Scotland vs Hungary Match Odds

When wagering on the second leg clash between Scotland and Hungary, you should note that all bets will be settled within 90 minutes.

🏅 Scotland vs Hungary: Match Winner

The odds for this one are tight, with the selected bookmakers slightly favouring Hungary, but there is not much in it at all. Both sides know the importance of this game and the potential of qualifying for the last 16 of Euro 2024, and the bookmakers know of it as well, and they are barely able to split the two sides with both sides coming in at odds over even money. Neither side have victory in the European championships to this point, but in qualifying Hungary won 5 out of 8 games drawing 3 remaining unbeaten. In qualifying, Scotland won 5 out of 8 games, drawing twice and losing once. The odds of the match winner from selected bookmakers can be seen below.

✔️ Scotland vs Hungary- Betting Tips

There are some intriguingly priced markets associated with the clash between Scotland and Hungary, as both sides try to get to the Last 16 of the Uefa Euros. Here are some tips to keep in mind!

  • Tip 1: Back Hungary to win and Both Teams to Score: Scotland and Hungary is an intriguing match on matchday 3 of the Uefa Euros 2024 in Group A. The result of this match could determine if either side makes it to the Last 16 of Euro 2024. Hungary have lost their opening 2 games, so they will need the win to have any chance of qualifying out of the group and getting to the Last 16. A draw could potentially be enough for Scotland, but it is unlikely, so they will be going for the win, too. This could lead to an exciting game full of goals. Scotland games have had both teams score in 5 of their last 10 competitive matches, while Hungary games have had both teams score in 5 of their last 10 competitive games. Both sides will go for this one, which could lead to them both scoring, but I think the combination of Hungary having slightly more quality in their team and Scotland missing key defender Kieran Tierney will lead to Hungary getting the win. Hungary should have enough to win this potentially exciting game versus Scotland, so we are recommending a Hungary win and both teams to score with odds of 4.40 from DirectionBet Sport.
  • Tip 2: Back Over 2.5 Goals: As mentioned above, I expect this to be an exciting and attacking game that Hungary will win with both teams scoring. If this eventuality transpires, then there will be over 2.5 goals in this game. Each team had over 2.5 goals in 1 of their opening 2 group games, although both sides were on the losing end in both those games, Germany losing 5-1 to Germany and Hungary losing 3-1 to Switzerland. In qualifying, there were over 2.5 goals in 5 of Scotland’s 8 games. In qualifying, there were over 2.5 goals in 6 of their 8 games. In qualifying, Scotland averaged 2.13 goals scored per game, while Hungary averaged 2 goals scored per game. If these averages are continued by both these teams then there will be over 2.5 goals in this game. Over 2.5 goals is best priced at 20 Bet Sports. Get Over 2.5 goals at the odds price of 1.73 with 20BET Sports.
  • Tip 3:Dominik Szoboszlai to have over 0.5 assists: As touched upon earlier, Hungary are a team with quality in their ranks. This is most notably seen with their captain, Dominik Szoboszlai, who plays his club football with Liverpool. The Hungary attacking midfielder had 7 goals and 4 assists for Liverpool last season in his debut season for the club. Szoboszlai surprisingly only has 2 assists in 32 international appearances but has assisted Hungary’s only goal of this championship, assisting Barnabas Varga’s goal versus Switzerland. Szoboszlai is Hungary’s most important player and will need to be at his best in this game versus Scotland to give Hungary a chance of qualifying out of the group. He can do this by scoring or assisting but his style of play suits assisting and over 0.5 assists can be found on Legendplay Sports. For this, price of 3.10 with Legend Play Sports. This is a great use of any free bets that you may have.

1️⃣ Scotland Update

Scotland lost their opening group game 5-1 to Germany but got a draw versus Switzerland. They will need a win or a draw to finish 3rd in the group, but a win will guarantee them a spot in the last 16 as one of the 4 best 3rd place teams. Kieran Tierney went off against Switzerland with a hamstring injury that will likely end his tournament no matter how far Scotland progress.
