Both sides have near-identical records in their last five outings, with three wins and two draws. Hungary are coming into this match after a draw, while Portugal are heading into it after a win  Let’s take an in-depth look into both teams.

Hungary v Portugal Prediction - Preview

Hungary

Hungary will be having their second successive Euro appearance, facing the Portuguese, whom they also met in the prior edition. They are currently ranked 37th by FIFA in the world. Managed by Marco Rossi, the players of note include Ádám Szalai (Mainz), Attila Szalai (Fenerbahçe), Willi Orbán (Leipzig) and Loïc Négo (Fehérvár). The Magyarok qualified for the EURO play-offs having finished second in their group in the 2018-19 UEFA Nations League, picking up ten points to end 2 behind Finland and 1 ahead of Greece. In their latest match (friendly), they drew with Ireland, 0-0. With another showdown with Portugal looming ahead, they need to be in top form to pull off a better result.

  • Hungary are unbeaten in their last 9 competitive matches (W6 D3) since a 3-2 loss at home to Russia in the UEFA Nations League on 6 September 2020.
  • The Magyarok’s overall record in Budapest is W229 D89 L83.

Portugal

Portugal are looking to defend the EURO championship they won in 2016, which is also their first major title. They are currently 5th in the FIFA World Rankings. Managed by Fernando Santos, they have a superstar lineup with the likes of Cristiano Ronaldo (Juventus), Bruno Fernandes (Man Utd), Diogo Jota (Liverpool) and Ruben Dias (Man City). Ronaldo himself has made the most appearances in the tournament (21) and is the top scorer overall with 40 goals. The Selecao gave a taste of their power when they defeated Israel in a friendly match (4-0). Fernandes had a brace, while Ronaldo and Joao Cancelo (Man City) had a goal each. Could they do the same to Hungary on their opening match? We shall see.

  • Portugal are unbeaten in their 13 past matches against Hungary (W9 D4), scoring 30 goals and conceding just 10.
  • The Selecao have won all three of their previous matches in Budapest; all of those victories were against Hungary.

Hungary v Portugal Prediction - Final Thoughts

History would not be on Hungary’s side, as they have not beaten Portugal in over ten matches. While being on home soil may provide a boost for the Magyarok, the Selecao’s far superior lineup will deny them of a win on their EURO 2020 debut. With that, let’s take a look at the prediction.
