Wales vs Hungary Prediction
The Hungarians had a disaster of a trip, the last time they tried to lock horns with a squad on the road. They had traveled to take on Croatia, and right away in the fifth minute did the World Cup runners-up slotted in a goal to exert their dominance.
Later, they added two more, even before the first half was up, to raise the lead to three goals to nil. As the match progressed, the visitors were reduced to ten, and by then, they really had no chance to get back into the game.
On the other hand, the Welsh squad, led by their inspirational winger Gareth Bale, managed to stand toe-to-toe with the Croatians and settled for a point apiece, at home. The game ended with a 1-1 scoreline, and the equalizer for the hosts had come via Bale himself.
This game week, home advantage, plus the performance of Hungary picks out Wales as favorites. The hosts of the day are unbeaten in their previous five home matches and won four of them on the trot. (The fifth one which ended in a draw was against Croatia).
On the other hand, the Hungarians have a single victory to show for, from their previous twelve road trips, and this sole win had come against the weakest of the lot, Azerbaijan.
Consequentially, expect Wales to battle it out for the three points.
However, consider that Hungary has a fighting chance for qualification, and they have actually defeated this opponent in the reverse fixture. Moreover, the Hungarians have been impressive in overall games, and with this being the final match in the competition, they will play fearlessly.
A combination of these factors results in BTTS emerging as a hot favorite for this match-up.
