Struggling to get their wits about them, Hungary have been blowing hot and cold recently. With two wins from their preceding seven fixtures, it is fair to say the Magyars are not in the best of forms. They will be hoping to steady the tide soon enough.

With a place in the European Championship finals on the line, the Hungarians will be giving their all to topple Bulgaria in this fixture. Already on a worrying two-game losing streak, expect a rousing response from Marcos Rossi’s charges here.

Bulgaria vs Hungary Team News

While it will be a battle-of-wits to make it through the playoffs, any side that emerges victorious will immediately be thrust into Group F of the Euros. A group of death, this team will be thrown in the hat with European juggernauts like Germany, Portugal and France.

Beginning their qualification campaign in brilliant form, Bulgaria grabbed a couple of positive results to rise to the summit of Group A. As time went on, their performances dwindled as they failed to string favorable results on the spin.

They finished off their journey with a single win from their last eight games, dropping down to fourth on the standings. In fact, only Montenegro sported worse records than the Lions towards the latter part of the qualification series.

Now, qualification for the playoffs are based on performances in the UEFA Nations League, offering Bulgaria a lifeline, in their bid to reach the Euros finals come next summer. Should they make it all the way, it will mark their first appearance in the tournament since 2004.

The Lions’ last qualifying game saw them pick up all three points against Czech Republic via a hard-fought 1-0 victory. Moving on from that game, they went on to hold Ireland to a one-all draw before narrowly losing out to Wales in the Nations League.

Hungary, on the other hand, played out a decent qualifying campaign, and were very unlucky to have missed out on top-two. Trailing second-placed Wales by just two points, Marco Rossi’s men will be absolutely gutted for their Group E failures.

As things stand, the Magyars will have the small matter of the Path A playoffs to deal with, to earn qualification to next summer’s grand tournament. They were present in the 2016 edition, surprisingly toppling Portugal and Austria in Group F.

However, Hungary were eventually sent crashing out after a 4-0 drubbing at the hands of the fearsome Belgians in the Round-of-16 phase. Despite the loss, they were lots of positives to be taken from their magnificent run in the tournament.

Bulgaria vs Hungary Predictions

These two sides last faced in an international friendly game in 2012, one that ended in a drab one-all draw. It goes without saying that the Bulgarians are in horrific form heading into this fixture. At the moment, they cannot get a win to save their lives.

Checking out the stats books, Hungary will be brimming with smiles, given how bleak Bulgaria’s recent results are. Even without wonderkid Szoboszlai, count on the Hungarians to emerge victorious to make it into the playoff final.
