Scotland to Win

Reason for tip

Hungary have lost their first two games at this tournament by two goals and this is arguably the fixture they’re least suited for. The Hungarians have now lost three of their last four, including a 2-1 loss to an Ireland side who had a lot of joy hitting them on the counter time and time again. The Scots will remain compact against a Hungarian side who need to pour forward to win by a couple of goals, so Scotland can sit tight and hit Hungary on the break.

Scotland 2-1

Reason for tip

Scotland have kept one clean sheet in their last 11 games, which came against Gibraltar. Hungary have the attacking talent to get forward and score, but the Scots can rally and edge out a team who have shipped five goals in two games in Germany.

Andrew Robertson To Score Anytime

Reason for tip

Hungary have proven weak on their right flank in this tournament, with Swiss left wing-back Michel Aebischer scoring and assisting against them in their opener. Max Mittelstadt set up a goal for Germany against them from a deeper role and had a shot at goal. While Robertson hasn’t been hugely involved so far, but he scored in two of his final three league games for Liverpool and he can profit from the space Hungary offer up on that flank.

Scotland vs Hungary Predictions

  • Hungary have lost three of their last four games
  • Hungary look vulnerable to counter-attacks and Scotland should exploit that issue
  • Scotland improved against Switzerland and they can build on that display in a must-win game
  • Hungary have struggled against left-backs in this tournament and Andy Robertson can take full advantage

Scotland in the mix to qualify

After the scale of their thumping in the opening game, Scotland should be pleased with their position heading into the final match of the group. They bounced back with a point against Switzerland, with both sides figuring they had what they needed from that game by half-time.

The Scots know that a win on the final day all but secures their place in the last 16, even with a -4 goal difference. Hungary have the same goal difference but they have zero points to show for their first two games. The Hungarians have to win well to stand any chance of progressing, which could play into Scotland’s hands.

Hungary have a mountain to climb

Hungary head into potentially their final game of the tournament knowing that they need to repair their goal difference if they’re to stand any chance of getting through. A 2-0 loss to Germany last time out brought an improved performance from their 3-1 loss to Switzerland, but the Hungarians have now lost three of their last four matches.

Hungary were beaten at the Republic of Ireland ahead of the tournament, where their weakness against counter attacks was exposed. They’ve struggled in that regard in Germany too and the issue will only get bigger given that they need to rack up goals in Stuttgart.

This fixture looks perfect for the Scots, who were impressive against Switzerland. Steve Clarke’s side can sit back and allow Hungary to expose themselves defensively. Scotland can break with pace to catch Hungary out, while their increased resolve against the Swiss suggests the Scots can hold on to the lead.

Robertson key for Scots

In a must-win game for Scotland, they need to look to their biggest names. Scott McTominay netted for them against Switzerland, but Andy Robertson stands out as their go-to man for this fixture. The Liverpool left-back hasn’t scored at this tournament yet, but he did finish the domestic campaign by scoring in two of his final three games.

Scotland will look to Robertson to lead them to victory in this tight contest and Hungary have struggled to deal with left-backs at this tournament. Michel Aebischer both scored and assisted early for Switzerland in their opener, while Max Mittelstadt set up a goal for Germany against Hungary and had a shot at goal.

Robertson is probably a better attacking player than either of those two, so he should trouble Hungary in this clash. With the Hungarians struggling for wins and given how well this contest suits the Scots, take Robertson to score, and Scotland to come away with a 2-1 win.
