Hungary welcome Portugal to the Puskás Aréna in Budapest on Tuesday for this Euro 2020 match.

We expect Portugal’s quality to see them edge it.

Hungary have never beaten Portugal in 13 encounters in this head-to-head. Even the golden generation in the 1950s led by Ferenc Puskás only managed a 2-2 draw in Lisbon. Odds of 8/1 are available for the first-ever win for Hungary.

These nations shared the points when they met in Group F of the 2016 iteration of this tournament. Odds of 10/3 are available if you see Hungary and Portugal cancelling each other out on Tuesday.

Portugal have won the last 2 matches against Hungary and 9 of 13 overall in this head-to-head. Odds of 2/5 on are available for any win for the reigning champions.

Recommended Hungary vs Portugal betting tips

1-0 Hungary win. Hungary beat Cyprus 1-0 in a warm-up match in Budapest at the start of this month. While Portugal offer a much higher quality opponent, any Hungary win will likely by a low-scoring game and narrow win. A 1-0 home win on Tuesday is available at odds of 16/1.

3-3 draw. Few would have predicted a 3-3 draw when Hungary lined up to face the eventual winners in Group F in Euro 2016. Yet, that is exactly what they produced in one of the games of the tournament. A repeat of this score on Tuesday is available at odds of 100/1.

0-1 Portugal win. Portugal beat Hungary here back in 2017 when these nations last met in the World Cup Qualifiers. You can back them at 11/2 for the same scoreline here on Tuesday.

Over 2.5 goals. Hungary vs Portugal has historically been a high scoring game when they meet in competitive action. They are averaging over 3 goals per game with 6 of the 8 matches being over 2.5 goal games. You can back another high scoring game here on Tuesday with odds of evens for over 2.5 goals.

Ronaldo Goalscorer. No Portuguese player in history has more goals to their name against Hungary than Cristiano Ronaldo (below). He was at his inspirational best when these sides met in Euro 2016. Ronaldo helped Portugal come from behind on 3 separate occasions by creating the first before scoring their second and third goals. The 36-year-old is the 11/4 favourite to score the game’s opener on Tuesday. Or odds on at 5/6 to bag a goal at any time during the game against Hungary.

Hungary vs Portugal betting tips: Match preview

The Hungarians are almost the forgotten team of the tournament. Overlooked in a group with heavyweights France, Germany and Portugal. However, they have lost just once in the last 2 years and could prove a stubborn opponent here.

With only a handful of top-quality players though, the loss of their brightest star in Dominik Szoboszlai will be a huge loss. Szoboszlai is one of only four Hungarian players playing in one of Europe’s top 5 leagues. The others being their captain Ádám Szalai, who has 23 of the 57 goals in this Hungary squad and plays for Mainz in the Bundesliga and his teammates at RB Leipzig, central defender Willi Orbán and goalkeeper Péter Gulácsi.

Zsolt Kalmár, who likely would have held down a spot in midfield in this tournament, is also absent through injury for Hungary.

Warm-up matches against Cyprus and Ireland suggest they will be difficult to break down. The 3-3 draw against Poland in March, in which they were 2-0 up at one point, also hints that against superior opponents they will still have a go at making a game out of it.

The main focus of the game will be the reigning champions of course. Whether it is because of their star man in Ronaldo now being 36. Or the fact they are in a group of death with Germany and France. For whatever reason, it feels few are tipping the Portuguese to win the tournament. At 8/1 as outright winners, they are behind France, Belgium, England and Italy to win the competition and on the same odds as both Spain and Germany.

However, the spine of their team look capable of carrying them to the end of this tournament. Rui Patrício is one of the better goalkeepers in the Premier League. Rúben Dias was just voted Manchester City’s player of the year. Dias was also voted the best player in the Premier League by the Football Writers Association.

Renato Sanches was the star of their Euro2016 campaign and has seemingly rediscovered that form at Ligue 1 Champions Lille this season. Bruno Fernandes is one of the most productive midfielders in the world right now.

It is their forward line that is most stacked with talent though, with Cristiano Ronaldo, André Silva, Diogo Jota, João Félix and Bernardo Silva all coming into the competition after impressive club campaigns.

Hungary will need to be at their very best to stop this talented Portuguese side from tearing them apart.

Hungary team news vs Portugal

The loss of Dominik Szoboszlai to injury is undoubtedly the big news for this Hungary side. Szoboszlai has been struggling with a groin injury since joining RB Leipzig for 20 million euros in January.

Szoboszlai was included in their preliminary squad to give him every chance to prove his fitness. However, it seems Hungary will need to manage without the 20-year-old midfielder who is considered the Magyars best player since their golden generation.

Marco Rossi has stuck to a 3-5-2 system since the beginning of 2020, or some variant thereof.

Péter Gulácsi, Attila Szalai, László Kleinheisler and András Schäfer are the only Hungarian players to start both warm-up matches. Captain Ádám Szalai also looks sure to start up front and looks the only reliable source of goals for this Hungary side. The other spots in the starting XI could all be up for grabs.

Portugal team news vs Hungary

The big news from the Portuguese camp on Sunday was João Cancelo positive COVID-19 test. The 27-year-old Manchester City fullback has now been removed from the squad and will be replaced by Diego Dalot. Dalot spent last season on loan from Manchester United at AC Milan.

His Manchester City teammates, Rúben Dias and Bernardo Silva, joined the squad late following their defeat in the Champions League final to Chelsea. The pair started in the final warm-up match and are both expected to keep their place in the starting XI here.

Bruno Fernandes will be hoping his brace against Israel is enough to keep him in the team ahead of João Félix.

Midfield seems to be the biggest question mark, with William Carvalho, João Moutinho, Rúben Neves, Renato Sanches, Sérgio Oliveira and Danilo Pereira all vying for the two starting spots here.
