Hungary vs Turkey Betting Tips

  • Hungary to win @ 5/4
  • Over 1.5 Hungary goals @ 11/8

Match Odds

Hungary are priced at 5/4 to win, while Turkey are 2/1 to emerge victorious. A draw can be backed at 21/10. Both teams to score is valued at 4/5 and over 2.5 goals is 11/10. The hosts are 13/5 to score in both halves and 11/4 to win to nil.

Team News

Hungary will be looking to the attacking talents of Dominik Szoboszlai, Barnabas Varga and Roland Sallai at the Euros and boss Marco Rossi will be hoping that they can find some rhythm in the months leading into the tournament.

Liverpool's Szoboszlai scored a brace on his last outing for his country in a 3-1 home win over Montenegro in a Euro qualifier. The attacking midfielder seems to carry a much greater goal threat for Hungary than he does for his club, although he has scored a few for the Reds this term.

After tarnishing their label as dark horses for the last Euros, Turkey will be hoping for a much more memorable tournament this year. Head coach Vincenzo Montella will want to have a good look at his players over this international break so that he can prepare his team to progress from the group stage at the Euros on this occasion.

Although he has not featured much for Real Madrid this season due to injury, there is a lot of hype surrounding midfielder Arda Guler. Turkey will be hoping that he can make a huge impression on the international stage in the next few months.

Hungary to win @ 5/4

With the attacking players mentioned above, we fancy Hungary to come away with the win on this occasion. Szoboszlai plays a huge role for his country and tends to have a huge impact on the pitch when he is needed most.

Hungary will have high hopes for the summer and they know that the hard work begins now. They will want to deliver a strong performance on home soil to give their fans something to be excited about as we edge closer to June.

Hungary to win at 5/4

Over 1.5 Hungary goals @ 11/8

In Euro qualifying, Szoboszlai scored four goals and provided three assists in eight games. If Turkey need to be wary of one Hungary player in particular, it's him. However, the hosts do also have the likes of Varga and Sallai who can hurt Turkey's defence.

We like the look of this market due to the fact that Hungary have scored at least two goals in six of their last seven outings, and this is only enhanced by them playing this game on home soil. There is value to be had here, we think.

Over 1.5 Hungary goals at 11/8
