Hungary vs Iceland Betting Tips & Predictions
Reason for Hungary vs Iceland Predictions
Hungary has really stepped since that win over Bulgaria, and in the two matches that have followed, they haven’t conceded a goal. Meanwhile, they have claimed real morale-boosting results – beating Serbia 1-0 and drawing 0-0 with Russia, both games having been played away. As they get to play at home again, they will be looking to carry on with that form. However, three losses in four home matches are not the form they will be looking at for hope, and having conceded at least two goals in each of the three losses will call for more caution. They have six losses and four clean sheets in their last 12 home matches, but they have a better run at home in Euro qualification matches. The hosts have scored in each of the previous six at home, though not more than a goal in the last three. David Siger is a great midfielder, he can play in several positions, and he does not allow the opponent much action in the middle of the field. Nemanja Nikolics enjoys the pitch, when he receives the ball and moves towards the goal, the opponent has problems, he is strong, and his most significant strength is speed.
Iceland does not have a very good run going to this game; they have one win in the last five matches – the victory over Romania in the playoff semi-finals. They have no clean sheet in their previous five games and have straight losses in the two matches ahead of this clash. Each of their last four games has produced over 2.5 goals, and they have conceded two or more in three of their previous four matches. In 15 away clashes, Iceland has registered just two wins and kept two clean sheets in the process. They have conceded two or more goals in seven of their last ten away matches, but they have also scored in seven of the 10. Gylfi Sigurdsson is the biggest star in the national team, he plays well in Everton, and he is the starter in every match. This guy can play in several positions, and he is a great defensive midfielder. Birkir Bjarnason is an experienced player, which does not allow the opponent to play much in the middle of the field, and he is instrumental to the national team.
It will be a big battle between these two teams, and it will not be surprising if the match ends in a draw. We can also expect a goal in both nets, and neither side should keep the clean sheet.
