Hungary have made a reasonable run in the qualifiers for the World Cup in Russia and is in the top half of the qualifying table Group B with 58% of the points played so far and it is worth mentioning that it is 2 points from Portugal and 5 Points of the Swiss leader, then it is very important to score in this match so as not to let those two teams distance themselves in the search for a place in the 2018 World Cup. The Hungarian team scored 8 goals, being the third best attack in their group and conceded 3 goals, with the defense less leaked and these numbers show good balance between the offensive and defensive sectors, but still need to improve in the attack to score more goals. Playing away from home, as their match on Saturday, Hungary takes advantage of 67% and averages of 1 goal scored and no goal conceded per game, but it is worth mentioning that the two matches as a visitor were against the fragile teams of Latvia and Faroe Islands.

Betting suggestion:

This confrontation tends to be somewhat unbalanced, considering that the principal has a cast of great quality and reason why is the current champion of the European Championship, while the visitor has only medium cast and despite being fighting for a vacancy in the next World Cup, made all his points against the ineffective selections of Andorra, Faroe Islands and Latvia. In addition, Portugal has players capable of unbalancing any game, especially the star Cristiano Ronaldo who is the top scorer of the European qualifiers with 7 goals. In view of these factors, we believe that Portugal will make use of the superior cast and the game command to win the 3 points without major difficulties. This betting suggestion has expired...
