Hungary vs Faroe Islands
World Cup Qualifiers – Europe (Group B)
Date: Tuesday, 10th October 2017
Kick off at 19:45 UK/ 20:45 CET
Venue: Groupama Arena (Budapest).
Hungary will be hoping to at least finish a generally dismal campaign with a victory in the last round’s home fixture with Faroe Islands.
Any other scenario would represent a catastrophe for Nemzeti Tizenegy who would even lose the third position to their rivals in case of a potential defeat on Tuesday evening at Groupama Arena.
The Hungarians might hold the third position in the Group B, but it’s a distant third as they enter the final two fixtures with an 11-point deficit to the second-placed Portugal side.
This is obviously a massive blow to their ambitions after the team reached the last 16 phase at EURO 2016 in France.
Bernd Storck’s men have been struggling a lot to find goals as they failed to find the back of the net in five of their last six outings in all competitions (predictably those were all losses).
The Faroese team has a fantastic opportunity to make a historical success and end the qualifying term at the third position. To get there, they need a victory over Latvia in the penultimate round and a point from the visit to Groupama Arena on Tuesday.
The Dane manager Lars Christian Olsen can be thrilled with the job he has done in making the team fairly tough to break down as no team except for Portugal managed to score two or more goals past Faroe Islands in this qualifying term (including two matches with the leaders Switzerland).
Hungary vs Faroe Islands: Head to head
The two sides have met each other only three times so far and Hungary have never managed to score three or more goals.
Nemzeti Tizenegy picked up two narrow wins in the previous qualifying term (for the EURO 2016 in France), while the first match of this campaign saw a goalless draw at Torsvollur.
Hungary vs Faroe Islands: Prediction
According to everything written above, e can’t expect the Hungarians to ease past their rivals and we simply have to back Faroe Islands not to lose by two or more goals here at the sky-high odds of 7/5.
