Serbia vs Hungary Match Analysis & Prediction
07/09/2023 9:45 pm
Serbia and Hungary will meet on Thursday night with the two nations locked on the same points in Group G.
Both teams came through their opening three Euro 2024 qualifying matches unbeaten and will back themselves to extend those runs in Belgrade.
Having failed to win a game at the 2022 World Cup, Serbia have been attempting to redeem themselves and qualify for another major tournament.
Being held to a 1-1 draw in Bulgaria last time out would not have impressed their fans, Serbia requiring a last-gasp Darko Lazovic goal to earn a share of the spoils.
However, it is a goal that could eventually prove decisive with Serbia having previously opened their qualifying campaign with a 2-0 victories over Lithuania and Montenegro respectively.
While Dragan Stojkovic’s side are favourites to win this game, Hungary prevailed on their last visit, coming out on top by a 1-0 scoreline in a UEFA Nations League match back in October 2020.
Hungary would have had high hopes of picking up three wins in succession during the early stage of qualifying, yet they have had to settle for seven points.
A goalless draw was recorded in Montenegro, either side of wins over Bulgaria and Lithuania on home territory, and the Magyars are yet to concede a goal.
In their last 13 matches, Marco Rossi’s side have only suffered defeat in two games with Italy, with three victories over England and Germany coming during that period.

Rossi will make at least two changes to his Hungary starting lineup, with Endre Botka and Daniel Gazdag both not included in the squad.
Adam Lang and Zsolt Kalmar appear most likely to be handed chances in defence and midfield, providing that Rossi sticks with a back three.
