Croatia vs Hungary Match Preview
Group E is among the tighter Euro 2020 qualification pools and there may be little to choose on Thursday between Croatia and Hungary, who are vying for automatic spots at next summer’s tournament.
Only one point covers these countries and Slovakia at the top of the group standings, while Wales are also still right in the mix due to having a game in hand.
Hungary are the only team to have got the better of Croatia in this campaign so far, beating the World Cup runners-up 2-1 at home in March.
But there was further disappointment for Zlatko Dalic’s side last time out when they were held to a 1-1 draw away to Azerbaijan, who were collecting their first point in this pool and are the only one of the five nations who cannot qualify automatically.
Dalic has all of his biggest-name players available here but while Croatia are a short price in the match result market (see below), they have not won a home fixture by more than one goal in their last seven attempts.
We think the bookmakers may have underestimated Hungary’s chances in this game and while we do not see them causing an upset that would seriously jeopardise Croatia’s qualification prospects, it could be closer than the layers expect.
