Holders Portugal will kick off the defense of their European with a clash against Hungary on their home turf in Budapest.
With France and Germany also in this pool, A Selecao will look to make a strong start on Tuesday against a Hungarian team that is beaming with confidence on the back of a solid run of results leading up to this opener.
Our preview will focus on Bet9ja betting app prices for this game.
Hungary were subpar in the qualifiers finishing fourth in their qualifying group, behind Croatia, Wales and Slovakia. However, they turned up a notch higher in the playoffs, beating Bulgaria and Iceland to claim this spot.
Their reward was this group of death along with the defending champs Portugal and heavyweights Germany and France who by all measures can be considered pre-tournament favorites.
The Magyars impressively topped Group F in 2016, ahead of Portugal. Replicating that success is a tall order here but they will certainly give all they have.
Portugal lifted this trophy five years ago thanks mainly to some strong defensive displays from the group stage all the way to the finals which they won 1-0 over hosts France, with Eder’s goal in extra time settling the contest.
The Navigators also had a lackluster qualifying campaign but enjoyed a bit more success in the Nations League and have had a strong start to the World Cup qualifiers.
This is a critical game for Fernando Santos’ side as they still have two tough games still to come against Germany and France. They have no choice but to make hay while the sun is still shining.
Portugal were held to a draw by at Euro 2016, but this may not be the case this time around. Portugal’s squad to Euro 2020 appears to be one of their most talented sides, possibly eclipsing the title-winning 2020 team. Their defense is anchored by Manchester City’s outstanding center-back Ruben Navas, who won the EPL player of the year award, and they are awash with attacking talent led by the talisman himself, Cristiano Ronald. This being a critical game in the group, we fancy Portugal to go all out and we are backing them to win and 2 or more goals to be scored here @ 1.70 as our initial betting tip for this clash.
With both teams knowing tougher fixtures await them in the group, they will throw everything they have here and we are likely to have a closely fought and somewhat physical encounter here that draws us to the cards market. Portugal will have the lion’s share of possession and that will put the Hungarians on the backfoot for the vast majority of the game. Bet9ja has them getting more bookings priced @ 1.74 and we feel there is value in backing that as our final tip here.
