Hungary will entertain Sweden as both teams come into this match with opposite mind-sets. Despite taking the lead against France in Paris and perhaps taking a famous victory Sweden lost the match 2-1 in the space of ten minutes. Hungary though won their match over Latvia 2-0 more impressive given that they were away from home.
That win for Hungary has given them a fighting chance in their hopes of qualification for World Cup 2018 as they try to chase down 2nd place Portugal. As for Sweden they are in 2nd place and looking good for automatic qualification, behind France but ahead of Netherlands and they have a good 3 point advantage. This will be a good challenge away from home for them.
Hungary has drawn 50% of its matches this year and there form really is so so coming into this game despite their latest win. At home recently they are win-less in their past 3 games. Sweden has 3 losses to their name in their past six games and on the road they have just the one win and that was against Luxembourg and only by 1-0.
