Betting tips – Hungary vs Portugal – 03.09.2017
Hungary will welcome Portugal this Sunday from 19:45, UK Time, in the 8th round of World Cup Qualifiers, the visitors being clearly in pole-position.
Hungarians start as underdogs at the bookmakers, but they should not be neglected with the fans behind. Anyway, the hosts have no real chance to get a ticket for Russia 2018, since they are eight points behind second place with three remaining rounds. Hungary have a total of ten points in their account and a 11-8 goal difference. They just defeated Latvia at home, 3-1 few days ago in the last round.
Portugal won the reverse fixture without any problem, 3-0 at home after Silva scored the first goal and Ronaldo the two others. It is good to know that Portugal won both trips against Hungary so far, in 1998 (3-1) and in 2009 (1-0). The Lusitans are currently second in Group B, with 18 points out of 21. Switzerland lead the table, with maximum number of points after seven games, so there is no place for wrong steps for Portugal.
Prediction: 2 @ 1.36
Portugal need only wins if they want to finish first in this group. It won’t be easy in the last three matches and this is going a difficult trip. Anyway, we expect to see them getting three points here, being superior from many points of view.
