Portugal vs Hungary Predictions, Betting Tips and Preview

Portugal v Hungary betting tips and predictions ahead of this World Cup Qualifier, kicking off at 7:45pm on Saturday 25th March 2017.

 

Despite their European Championship success, Portugal are in a tight fight with Switzerland to make the World Cup next year. They’re three points off the top, so they can’t afford any slip ups against Hungary in Lisbon.

 

Portugal vs Hungary Predictions

 

While this game might not stand out as the highlight of Saturday’s football coupon, this could be a match worth following. Their 3-3 draw at the Euros last summer was one of the few memorable ties in that tournament, with the eventual champions only just making it through. That thrilling game wasn’t a one off, as these are two sides who score plenty of goals.

 

Five of the six meetings between these two have seen over 2.5 goals. The Portuguese have been in excellent scoring form in this group, racking up 16 goals in just four matches. While Hungary look a little goal shy in comparison, they’ve scored eight times so far. The European champions had an excellent defensive record last summer, but they have conceded in ties with Latvia and Switzerland of late. Despite those worries at the back, we can see the hosts thriving given their strong attack. We’re backing a home win and over 2.5 goals in our first Portugal vs Hungary prediction, which is priced at Evens with Coral.

Portugal hit three past Hungary to keep their Euro 2016 hopes alive, and that marked the fifth time in six meetings that they’ve scored exactly three goals against their next opponents. The visitors shipped three at home to Switzerland, and now they face a side who have hit over three goals in four of their five matches since being crowned European Champions. We’re backing over 2.5 goals for Cristiano Ronaldo and co. in our second Portugal vs Hungary betting tip. That’s priced at 6/4 with William Hill.

Portugal vs Hungary Betting Odds

Portugal are 3/10 favourites with Bet Victor, which is hardly a surprising price for the European champions. We’re expecting them to win with plenty of goals, so it’s worth looking at some goalscorer bets. Young forward Andre Silva is a rarity, as he could potentially be a lethal Portuguese number nine. His excellent form is banishing memories of Pauleta and Helder Postiga, the lacklustre forwards of Portugal’s golden generation. Silva has scored four times in his last three for his country, so we’re backing him at 11/8 with Betfred to score any time to complete our Portugal vs Hungary betting tips.
