Wales vs Hungary
Who? Wales vs Hungary in Matchday 10 of Group E of Euro 2020 Qualification
Where? Cardiff City Stadium, Cardiff, Wales
When? 19:45 GMT, Tuesday 19th November 2019 (Live on Sky Sports)
A huge one match shootout on Tuesday night sees third place Wales take on second place Hungary in Group E of the Euro 2020 Qualifiers.
After a 2-0 win in Azerbaijan on Saturday, Wales moved onto 11 points and kept themselves in contention for an automatic qualification spot. Goals from target man striker Kieffer Moore and Harry Wilson secured all three points for the Welsh. Coach Ryan Giggs closely monitored Gareth Bale and Aaron Ramsey, with both getting 60 and 30 minutes respectively to have both fit for this crucial game. That win also extends an unbeaten run to four games. Unfortunately for Wales, their last defeat came against tehe Hungarians in Budapest back in June. A single goal from Mate Patkai settled the tie and put pressure on recent games for the Welsh. We expect them, with the help of the home crowd, to get revenge on home soil.
For Hungary, they might only need a point to secure second point in this game against Wales. However, this group is so tight that fourth place Slovakia can still automatically qualify too. They are home against Azerbaijan who are bottom of the group, therefore are likely to pick up three points. A win for Slovakia would mean Hungary would need to win this game as a draw would not be good enough. If teams finish on equal points at the end of qualification, head-to-head matches are classed as the tiebreaker. Since the Hungarians lost both matches against Slovakia, they would have to settle for third place even if their goal difference is worse. Unfortunately for them, they are in a bad run of form, losing four of the last five in all competitions.
