Hungary have exceeded expectations in Euro 2020 Group E and could be a value bet to come out on top against Wales in Budapest on Tuesday night.
The hosts recovered from an opening loss in Slovakia to beat Croatia 2-1 at this venue and built on that by winning 3-1 away to Azerbaijan.
With a vocal support behind them, the Magyars look overpriced at 9/5 and are tipped to prevail for our opening Hungary vs Wales prediction.
A Look At Hungary’s Betting Odds
RB Leipzig defender Will Orban bagged a brace as Hungary went top of this pool with a smooth success in Baku, heading in the 18th-minute opener and tapping in a second after half-time.
Mahir Emreli pulled one back for Azerbaijan, but debutant David Holman ended hopes of a fightback with a solid strike soon after.
Marco Rossi’s men were strong at home in the Nations League, seeing off Greece, Estonia and Finland, so they should be full of self-belief after coming from behind to also upset Croatia here in this competition.
Hoffenheim striker Adam Szalai was one of the scorers that night and has a superb record of 20 goals in 55 international appearances.
His presence helps to make 9/2 for a home win and over 2.5 goals in the game stand out from the Hungary vs Wales odds.
A Look At Wales’ Betting Odds
Wales kicked off their campaign with a 1-0 home win over Slovakia and performed with credit when going down 2-1 in Croatia over the weekend.
The Dragons trailed to a James Lawrence own goal and an Ivan Perisic strike, before David Brooks gave them hope 13 minutes from time with a deflected drive.
Brooks and Gareth Bale then had chances to equalise in the closing stages and snatch an unlikely point, but Croatia held on.
“I’m obviously disappointed not to get something out of the game with the chances we had,” said Ryan Giggs. “We had so many good chances and we didn’t manage to put them away.”
However, that was a stamina-sapping effort in searing heat and could well take a toll on the Welsh players with such a quick turnaround.
Giggs is set to make changes and that may leave the visitors vulnerable, so 10/1 they suffer another 2-1 loss is added to our Hungary vs Wales betting tips.
Azerbaijan 1-3 HUNGARY – Orban (2), Olman
CROATIA 2-1 Wales – Brooks
Head-to-head: Wales 2-0 Hungary, Hungary 1-2 Wales, Hungary 1-2 Wales
