Knowing that another victory on Tuesday night will see them land an automatic route to next year’s European Championships, Wales will welcome Hungary to the Cardiff City Stadium in their final Group E appearance.
Landing a convincing 2-0 win away in Azerbaijan over the weekend, the Dragons are unbeaten in their last four qualifying matchups, a run that also saw them snatch a point off of Group E winners Croatia last month.
On the flip side, while a victory on Tuesday will see Wales secure an automatic spot at EURO 2020, Hungary know that just a single point in Cardiff will see them land a top-two finish in Group E.
However, while Marco Rossi’s men might have limped over the finish line by losing two of their previous three qualifying matchups, they will be boosted by their most recent meeting against Ryan Giggs’ side.
When the two nations met back in June, Hungary landed a 1-0 victory and you might be interested to know that a similar shock outcome for Tuesday’s guests can be found at 15/4 with Bet365.
Wales handed a golden chance
Putting in arguably their most impressive performance and landing a 2-0 win away in Azerbaijan on Saturday, Wales appear to have saved their best performances for the end of qualifying.
Now sat just a single point adrift of Hungary and that lucrative second spot in Group E, Ryan Giggs’ men will open Tuesday’s contests priced at 5/6 with Coral to land a top-two finish, ahead of Hungary who sit at 2/1.
With the former Manchester United icon believing that his side are enjoying their brightest spell during qualifying, one man to watch out for in midweek will be Wigan striker, Kieffer Moore.
Adding to his tally on foreign soil on Saturday, the 27-year-old has bagged two qualifying goals in his last three appearances and can be found at 2/1 with Paddy Power to extend on his run in midweek.
The Welsh contingent will also be boosted by the news that midfield ace Aaron Ramsey is set to be handed his first Group E start after playing the final 20 minutes out in Azerbaijan over the weekend.
Hungary limp over the finish line
Although a 1-0 win over Wales back in June may have epitomized a bright start to their qualifying campaign this year, Hungary have since come crashing back down to earth and find themselves in an uphill battle to maintain their top-two status.
Suffering a 2-1 loss against Uruguay last week in a friendly contest, Marco Rossi’s men have lost four of their last five matches across all competitions, including back-to-back defeats against Slovakia and Croatia.
With their Italian boss having an increasing headache regarding his side’s issues at the back, Hungary have shipped at least a pair of goals in each of their previous four defeats.
You might be interested to know that Tuesday’s guests can be found at 1/1 with 888sport to ship over 1.5 goals in midweek.
Much like last year, a huge part of Hungary’s continued issues have come down to some glaring struggles on foreign soil.
Suffering back-to-back defeats on the road, Monday’s guests have won just one of their previous 12 matches across all formats on the road, a run that stems back to a 2-0 win over Latvia in October 2016.
