Hungary vs Azerbaijan Prediction
The hosts were just a point shy of overtaking the table toppers when they went into the clash with Croatia earlier this week on the road. Nevertheless, Hungary should feel confident of coming out on top in this one, especially with the home advantage they have at hand.
So far, the home team have picked up the win in two of their last three games here, one of which was against the 2018 world Cup runners up themselves. It is also worth mentioning that their only defeat on home soil, came against Slovakia by a narrow 2-1 scoreline. Be that as it may, Marco Rossi’s men certainly gave their foes a run for their money in that latter clash and finished the game with twice as many shots on target as their foes.
Furthermore, their counterparts for the weekend have already hit rock bottom in the table and have garnered no more than one measly point, from their last five games. Azerbaijan have also lost both of their outings so far, and have come out on top just once in their previous six trips on the road in all competitions.
Taking into account that the visitors have not emerged victoriously against the hosts in any of their previous five head to head meetings either, an easy win for Hungary looks certain on the cards.
Additionally, Rossi’s men have been faring well against this foe in their previous clashes and have scored three goals or more in each of their last five matchups. Considering that they slotted three past them without breaking much of a sweat when they last locked horns as well, count on Hungary to rack up the goals tally by all means in this one.
