Wales are on the brink of qualification for the European Championships next summer, but they have a tough Hungary side standing in their way.
The Dragons picked up the win they needed at the weekend to take qualification to the last match. Wales have come on strong since September and they have put in performances that we have become accustomed to seeing since their impressive run in the 2016 Euros semi-finals.
Ryan Giggs’ side will be confident of getting the result they need, and they’ll look to their big stars again to get them through. The biggest of those is Gareth Bale and in games gone by Wales would have relied heavily on the Real Madrid forward to drag them through. In this game though, they will have Aaron Ramsey, Harry Wilson and Daniel James to ease the burden on Bale’s shoulders.
One player I think could have a big impact on the game is Bournemouth’s Wilson who has been in good form of late, scoring twice in his last two games in all competitions. Wilson has a superb left foot and isn’t afraid to shoot; he’ll also will likely be in the conversation for taking free kicks which should aide our cause when taking him at 14/5 (Mo Play) to score at any time.
Looking at Hungary’s recent away form, it leaves a lot to be desired. The visitors have lost three of their last four in all competitions and conceded at least two goals in all three defeats. Two of the defeats were against Slovakia and Montenegro and both of those sides are poor on the international scene.
I think Hungary could struggle again come Tuesday night in what is sure to be a ferocious atmosphere. I think Wales will have too much for the visitors and I think they should be able to score a few goals. Wales to win and Over 1.5 Goals is 6/5 (Coral) and I think this has a good chance of coming in.
Wales may have only scored two goals once in their last five, but I think this is the strongest squad that they have had for a while. The hosts are stronger at home and I think, coupled with Hungary’s poor away record, they could be in for a long night.
Another angle I like is for Mihaly Korhut to be shown a card at any time 3/1 (Unibet). Korhut has three yellow cards in five games in qualification so far and he’ll probably be up against Bale and James who should cause problems for the left back.
Wales will most likely have a lot of possession and they’ll be dangerous on the break which could lead to Korhut being one on one against either of these two attackers.
