One of the matches of the third round of the Euro 2024 group stage will be played in Stuttgart, where the "MHP" Arena will host the national teams of Scotland and Hungary. Here is a prediction for this match from the Dailysports expert team.

Scotland

The "Tartan Army" surprised everyone in the qualifiers by finishing behind Spain, overtaking the strong Norwegian team. During the qualification campaign, Scotland lost only one match – to Spain away. However, towards the end of the tournament, it became clear that the team had issues. These problems persisted in friendly matches, as the Scottish team won only against Gibraltar in four encounters, losing to the Netherlands (0-4) and Northern Ireland (0-1).

Scotland had a terrible start at the Euro itself, suffering a heavy defeat against Germany with a score of 1-5. Heading into the match against Switzerland, Steve Clarke's team was considered the underdog but managed to avoid defeat against the "Neutrals" – 1-1. The upcoming third-round match against Hungary is crucial, as a victory will give Scotland a chance to qualify for the playoffs.

Hungary

The Hungarian national team performed very strongly in the qualifiers, finishing first in their group, ahead of Serbia, Montenegro, Lithuania, and Bulgaria. In preparation for Euro 2024, Hungary played four friendly matches, winning against Turkey (1-0), Kosovo (2-0), and Israel (3-0), and losing an away match to Ireland with a score of 1-2.

The start of the current European Championship was a blatant failure for Hungary. In the tournament's opening match, the Hungarians lost 1-3 to Scotland, conceding the third goal in the 90+3 minute. In the second round, Hungary lacked class in their match against Germany, losing 0-2 to the Euro hosts. As a result, after two rounds, Hungary is in last place with a goal difference of 1-5.

Interesting facts about the match and the history of head-to-head encounters

  • The last match between these teams took place in March 2018, when Scotland defeated Hungary 1-0 in a friendly match.
  • In the two matches between these teams, both teams never scored.
  • Scotland has scored in four consecutive matches.

Scotland vs Hungary Prediction

Bookmakers do not see a clear favorite in this match, and it's hard to disagree. The teams have shown approximately the same level of play, and in this head-to-head confrontation, they will decide who becomes the third team in the group. Our bet is "Both teams to score" with odds of 1.65.
