Hungary vs Russia
UEFA Nations League
Date: Sunday, 6 September 2020
Kick-off at 17:00 UK/ 18:00 CET
Venue: Puskás Aréna.
Stanislav Cherchesov’s men are simply on another league when compared to the Magyars, when recent form, accomplishments, and experience are considered.
Not only do they have a severely lopsided h2h record, but they also have been a dangerous squad in recent international competitions, whereas Marco Rossi’s men have even found it hard to qualify for these contests.
Moreover, as these two are at the top of the table in Group B3 at the moment (having the same number of points), a win this Sunday will give Artem Dzyuba and his boys a considerable lead in the first position.
Expect Russia to deliver a great performance at the Puskás Aréna.
Hungary vs Russia: Head-to-head (h2h)
- The last time these two met on the pitch, Cherchesov’s men recorded a 0-3 win on the road.
- They have never once failed to score goals against this rival, and have scored two or more goals in all but one game.
- In fact, disregarding a single draw, they have a 100% winning record.
- The Magyars have scored a total of three goals from the past five fixtures.
Hungary vs Russia: Prediction
Dzyuba and his boys have won nine of their last ten overall matches, and this sole loss had come against Belgium. They have also scored a total of 18 goals from their past five games, while keeping clean sheets in three of those.
On the road, they are on a four-fixture winning run, and recorded a combined scorecard of 1-16 in the process.
On the other hand, their counterparts had lost five of their previous seven games, and at home, they had lost two of their former three fixtures.
Moreover, Cherchesov’s men also have a 100% winning record in h2h clashes, barring one draw in 2010, and have never once failed score against them. In fact, they have scored three or more goals in every single official game so far.
Going on, they had also made it to the Quarter Final of the 2018 World Cup, while their opposite number have not even appeared in the competition since 1986.
In addition, Dzyuba and his boys qualified for the upcoming Euros after finishing second in their group, just below Belgium, whereas the Magyars failed to make the cut even there.
It also deserves to be mentioned that Cherchesov’s men had won 100% of their fixtures in the Qualifiers against any team not named Belgium.
Suffice it to say that Russia are huge favorites this Sunday to post the win.
