Hungary vs Portugal Match Preview and Team News
Hungary managed to get out of their group at Euro 2016 though they were hammered 4-0 by Belgium in the second round. In qualification for this tournament, they went the playoffs route after finishing fourth in their group, but they’ve had quite a remarkable run by their standards ahead of this game. They are on 11 unbeaten matches, with seven wins therein. They drew 3-3 with Poland in the World Cup qualifiers in March, in what will pass as their most challenging game in recent times, while they’ve had three clean sheets in the last four matches. In their warm-up games, they beat Cyprus 1-0 before drawing 0-0 with Ireland, but they know it will be tough against Portugal though playing at home, they’ll have the 12th man advantage. 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.
Portugal starts their title defense against a team they’ve beaten in seven of their eight meetings in history. With more challenging matches ahead, a good start is critical, and they will be targeting three points before planning for France and Germany. In Euro 2016, Portugal had to come from behind thrice to draw with Hungary, with Cristiano Ronaldo scoring a brace. That was just one of the six times Portugal have scored three goals in a game against Hungary, and coming from a 4-0 win over Israel in their final warm-up match, they will be confident of another comfortable outing. They’ve scored two or more goals in three of their last four games and have three clean sheets in the previous five while they have a six-game unbeaten run. Danilo Pereira is a modest player who works a lot on the field, plays without mistakes, all praise for him. Cristiano Ronaldo is the biggest star of the national team, he is a football machine, and it is a real pleasure to watch this man.
