England and Hungary meet in the Nations League on Tuesday at Molineux and the hosts are still seeking their first victory in the competition.
Gareth Southgate’s men went down 1-0 in the reverse fixture last week and have since drawn against Germany and Italy, leaving them bottom of Group 3 with two points and in danger of dropping down to League B level.
However, group leaders Italy are only three points better off so there is still hope for the Three Lions – if they can avenge last week’s loss to Hungary.
We’ve already covered the game in our Match Predictions and we’re not expecting too many goals on Tuesday, but we’ve still managed to put together this 127/1 Ultimate Bet Builder Tip ahead of the clash.
England vs Hungary Ultimate Bet Builder
Conor Coady to have one or more shots on target
England may be in need of a result, but boss Gareth Southgate is expected to rotate his side once again as this will be their fourth game in just 11 days. Predicting England’s starting sides in these Nations League games has been a tough task but Conor Coady could well be involved from the off here at Molineux and if he is handed a start he looks a good outside candidate for an attempt on target. Coady has only played in one of the three matches so far and Southgate may hand him more game time at the home of his club side Wolves.
Coady managed two attempts in the first meeting in Hungary. He was unable to register a shot on goal in Budapest, but it did show a willingness to get forward and as he managed to get roughly a third of his attempts on target for Wolves during the Premier League campaign he still looks a good candidate to test the keeper at least once on Tuesday at a big price.
Dominik Szoboszlai to have one or more shots on target
Hungary’s Dominik Szoboszlai is another contender to register an attempt on target as he has been contributing in attack over the course of the last few weeks for his country. The Red Bull Leipzig midfielder has one goal in three appearances so far and is averaging 2.0 shots-per-game. Szoboszlai has averaged 0.7 attempts on target per-game over those three Nations League games and 1.0 blocked, so he should be able to record at least one attempt on target at Molineux.
England to receive over 1.5 cards
England saw two players booked when they faced Hungary away last week and the Three Lions have picked up two yellow cards in two of their three Nations League games so far. Hungary could attempt to turn this game into a physical battle and that would probably lead to a few cards being dished out so the price on two cards for the hosts appeals.
Andras Schafer to be shown a card
Hungary’s Andras Schafer was booked in the first meeting and has picked up a yellow card in both of his Nations League appearances so far. Schafer is expected to go back into the starting XI after returning from suspension following those two bookings and as the visitors are likely to receive a few bookings themselves and he looks like a candidate to go into the referee’s notebook.
