Our Prediction:

Hungary will win

Hungary – Azerbaijan Match Prediction | 13-10-2019 12:00

The hosts are determined to qualify for their first ever major tournament and a win over Hungary will surely give them a confidence boost. Azerbaijan will be looking to bounce back from a 2-1 loss to Croatia when they welcome Hungary at their Bakcell Arena on Saturday evening. Nikola Jurcevics men are undefeated in previous six home games in all competitions, which is surely giving fans a reason for optimism ahead of the visit of the Hungarian national team.

Hungry captain Balzs Dzsudzsk has netted twenty-one times in one-hundred caps from midfield, while striker dm Szalai has scored twenty goals in fifty-four appearances. Hungary are the favourites and have a good history against Azerbaijan, but the hosts have proved a tough team to beat of late and have a good defensive record heading into Saturdays match. Were confident that Saturdays game will end in a draw, and have predicted a final scoreline of 1-1. Dimitrij Nazarov has scored eight goals in thirty-nine appearances for Azerbaijan from midfield, while Rufat Dadashov presents the hosts main goal scoring threat up front.

Head to Head

In three of their last four games, attackers failed to do what they are paid for. The situation in the Hungarian national team is grim. In the vast majority of matches, there are two goals at most. All in all, Hungary has an average team and as such we cannot expect too much from them. It is also worth noticing that Milli, as they like to call themselves, score very often in the first forty-five minutes. We already said that Azerbaijan is not bad at all when they play as hosts but in those games, there are not too many goals. One of the best players in the Hungarian team is goalkeeper Peter Gulacsi who kept his sheet clean in sixteen Bundesliga games.

Croatia had more of the ball, but Hungary created much the better goal scoring opportunities in the second half, and scored the winning goal through Ptkai in the seventy-sixth minute to get Hungarys first points of the qualification stage. A thirteenth minute effort from Rebi handed Croatia the lead in Hungary back in March, but Szalai struck back before the break for the hosts to make it 1-1. Despite having 55% of the overall possession and five shots on target to their guests two, Azerbaijan were held to a goalless draw in a friendly at home to Lithuania last time out.

They finished the UEFA Nations League with back-to-back 2-0 home wins Adam Szalai and Willi Orban scoring against Estonia and Szalai and Adam Nagy doing so against Finland. Hungary have won three of their last four matches, but lost to Slovakia in their first Euro 2020 qualifier. After their 2-0 loss to Slovakia, Hungary then bounced back as Szalai and Mate Patkai scored in a 2-1 defeat of Croatia.
