England vs Hungary Predictions and Betting Tips
The Three Lions return to Wembley in the UEFA World Cup Qualifiers as they host Hungary thisTuesday. Read on for our expert tips and predictions.
In 23 head-to-head encounters between the two sides, England hold the clear advantage with 16 wins and just five losses. Southgate's troops eased to a 4-0 victory last month and would be looking to do the same en route to next year's finals in Qatar.
Three Lions' World Cup spot all but secured
England still lead the way in Group G with 19 points from seven games. The draw against Poland last month represents the only blemish in their near-perfect record in these qualifiers. We once again saw the Three Lions score at will in their last game away at Andorra as they put five unanswered goals past the Andorra goalie. This makes it 14 times they've found the net in just four World Cup qualifying matches. They host the Hungarians at Wembley this Tuesday- a place they have won all of their last 12 qualifiers games. How would the Hungarians fare given this statistic ?
Hungary haven't made it to the World Cup finals since 1986 and it would take some effort if they're to grab a spot in the finals next year. A run of one win and three losses in their last four matches has put them in 4th place, five points behind Albania and four behind Poland. The Hungarians dealt a hammer blow by Albania as the second-placed team picked up a 1-0 victory last weekend. As such, Marco Rossi's troops would need maximum points from their final three games, as well as some results going their way if they're to make it through to Qatar.
