Wales vs Hungary Predictions

The fight for second in Group E heads to the wire this week, as Wales face a crunch home qualifier to book their place at the Euros. Despite all the negativity which has surrounded them so far, the Welsh have their fate in their own hands heading into the final match in this group. The hosts know a victory will be enough to get them over the line, while Hungary need to win as a draw could still leave them short.

This group is brilliantly poised, with Wales a point shy of second-placed Hungary. Fourth-placed Slovakia are still in the mix – a win for them combined with a draw in Cardiff would send them through. That promises a big finale on Tuesday night, but can Wales pull off a crucial result in front of their home support? Having strung results together to get back in the fight, they need to finish the job here.

The hosts are boosted by Hungary’s awful away record, which has held them up and prevented them from already wrapping up second. They have won once in nine competitive away trips, which gives Wales this brilliant chance to book their place at the Euros. The hosts are relying on the return of Gareth Bale and Aaron Ramsey for this decisive clash, while Joe Allen returns alongside him in midfield.

Wales should be able to move away from their struggles now they have those three key players back. With Harry Wilson and Daniel James making their way into the first-team picture, there’s a lot of midfield talent for Ryan Giggs to nurture. However, he needs that talent to show in this vital game. Will the Welsh be able to edge it?

The hosts have won four of their last five here, only being denied by top-of-the-table Croatia. Meanwhile, Hungary have lost four of their last five outings, which has us siding with the Welsh in this one. We think Giggs and his men can get over the line, so we are backing them to take the vital three points and book their spot at the Euros.

We are going for a 2-1 victory for the Welsh as our correct score prediction in this clash, with Hungary losing three of their last four away trips. The visitors are likely to come up short on the road, while the Welsh do tend to just edge games. In four of their last five at home they won by a single goal, so we are backing a 2-1 Wales victory this week.
