Croatia vs Hungary Prediction

The hosts have emerged as the table-toppers at the end of matchday five and are currently a point above second-placed Slovakia. Despite encountering a stumble against this very same opponent in the early stages, the home team have since turned things around in style and are unbeaten in their last three games.

Their previous trip on the road saw them share the spoils with Azerbaijan, prior to which they pulled off a massive 4-0 winner over Slovakia. Furthermore, the hosts have been a force to reckon with at home so far and are boasting an impressive two-match winning streak under their belt at the moment.

On the other hand, Hungary were at the losing end of a 2-1 scoreline in their respective clash with the Slovakians. The defeat was only their second of the campaign and has left them on third behind the latter, albeit on goal difference.

Additionally, the visitors have been a nervous bunch on the road and have tasted success just once in their last ten outings in all competitions. Taking into account that the away side have not got the better of this foe in any of their recent visits to Croatian soil either, the win is more than likely to swing in favor of Croatia at the end of the ninety minutes.

Also, the hosts have found the back of the net twice in each of their last two clashes on home soil. While, three out of the last seven goals for the away side have come from their outings.

Considering that their previous head to head clash did not disappoint in terms of goals either, by all means, count on both teams to rack up the goals tally in this one.
