Hungary vs Russia Team News

Drawn in Group B3 of the Nations League, Hungary were touted by the media as favorites for the drop. Despite being included in relegation-talks prior to the start of the campaign, the Magyars look more than determined to prove the public wrong.

Head coach Marco Rossi watched on with smiles on his face as his boys went toe-to-toe against Turkey last time out. Showing resilience all through, Hungary never really looked like losing the game.

Even though a draw seemed a better reflection of the match, Hungary’s Szoboszlai produced a moment of class in the 80th minute, firing the ball home to send his side ahead. Digging really deep for the rest of the game, Rossi’s charges managed to hold onto their narrow lead to record a famous victory.

That win will have done a world of good for the Hungarians as it flashed a ray of light in what has been a dark period for the squad. Last year, they recorded five defeats from their six games. In fact, they were very lucky to make it to the Euro qualifying playoffs, having played badly through the year.

Now, things are looking up for the Magyars, and they will be buzzing ahead of their fixture against Russia this weekend. However, they must not get ahead of themselves or they will be brought back down to earth. The Russians are in red-hot form at the moment and look unstoppable.

Last time out against Serbia, they threw the Eagles under the bus. Bossing the opposition throughout the course of the game, Cherchesov’s men recorded an emphatic 3-1 win to fire themselves to the top of the charts.

After onlookers were forced to endure a horrible first-half, the players treated us to some great football after the restart. Skipper Artem Dzyuba took center-stage, bagging a brace to take his tally for his country to 26 goals from 43 appearances.

It might be concerning that Russia have leaned too much on Dzyuba over the years. However, as long as the experienced forward keeps on producing the goals, Stanislav Cherchesov will feel justified by his questionable tactics.

They showed their defensive credentials in that game too, keeping Mitrovic quiet throughout the game. If they manage to pull off such strong showing once again, they could well be celebrating victory against Hungary at fulltime.
