Hungary comes from a narrow defeat away from home in a friendly game against Montenegro 2:1, but surely keeping in mind that they are awaiting much more important game and not focusing much on it.
Still, a draw would be a far fairer outcome from what we have seen on the field. After a victory in March over Croatia, the side did well in June too, defeating Azerbaijan and Wales.
They now have a perfect chance to really establish themselves as favorites to quality in case of a victory here.
The hosts miss defenders Fiola (27/0, MOL Fehervar and Vinicius (7/0, MOL Fehervar) as well midfielder Kalmar (15/0, DAC) out of recently called-up players.
Slovakia did get a victory at the start of the qualifiers against Hungary, however, they didn’t shine in matches against Wales and Croatia.
Most recently, they suffered bit heavy loss at home against Croatia last Friday night when they were outplayed with a 4:0 result. In an overall very open game, the Croats were the ones whose efficiency worked far better.
The guests are missing defenders Gyomber (21/0, Perugia), Stetina (3/1, Sparta Prague), midfielder Stoch (59/6, PAOK) and forward Pacinda (4/1, Korona) out of more known players comparing to recent call-ups.
After a bit humiliating defeat in front of own fans, I highly doubt the Slovaks will be able to bounce back here. The Hungarians are having great atmosphere inside the locker room and with the help of their own fans, they should definitely be closer to get the victory here.
