Hungary v R. of Ireland Preview & Tips (4th June)
Hungary and the Republic of Ireland meet in an international friendly this 4th of June. The game starts at 19:45 GMT.
Hungary put in a good performance last Friday with a win over Czech Republic. An 88th minute goal by Adam Gyurcso helped the Hungarians steal the victory after Balazs Dzsudzsak’s 6th minute goal was equalised by a 25th minute penalty strike by Michal Kadlec. As a result the Hungarians have an unbeaten record so far in this year, and they will play Ireland and Israel in their next two games to build on such good run.
The Hungarians resume their 2014 FIFA World Cup bid on September against Andorra. They are in the UEFA Group D for qualification, seeded against the likes of Netherlands, Turkey, and Romania. It’s a tough group by the looks of it alone, and Hungary will need to prepare well if they want to play in Brazil in a couple of years’ time.
R. of Ireland
James McClean wowed Ireland fans last time out when they beat Bosnia-Herzegovina in Dublin. A Shane Long 78th minute strike carried the home side to leave it late, helping the fans to a good sigh of relief. Both Premier League-based players gives Giovanni Trapattoni a duo to rely on – McClean most remarkably only played his international debut to the point of giving his manager selection problems ahead of Euro 2012.
Republic of Ireland will be playing their first Euro 2012 come June 10 in Poznan against Croatia. The Croats are certainly better than Bosnia, and Trapattoni will need to rev up his preparations for their opposition. After Croatia, Spain and Italy complete the set of group stage fixtures of the Irish; a series of tests that will ripple Ireland’s class and form to the bones.
Hungary v R. of Ireland Betting Preview
Hungary is playing well as of late, so is the Republic of Ireland. Both teams are well-matched to take on this fixture, and this promises us a good game on Monday. Ireland however is arguably well-off in terms of quality and preparations, so don’t count on Hungary to easily get past them. Then again, the game looks like it’s going to end in a close score-line, and at the end of the day, a single goal can possible sway the results in favour of the other side.
Verdict: We’re calling this one a draw, 1-1.
Ireland is slightly favoured to win at 7/5, while a draw is at a gratifying-enough 23/10. At nil-nil, the odds are 8/1, while the likelier conclusion to this battle – a 1-1 scoreline – is at 5/1. Take the game to go under 2.5 goals punt at all costs; although at 4/6, there’s a bit likelihood for returns in that department.
As for goalscorers, fancy Dzsudzsak to score anytime at 7/2. James McClean on the other hand might be given the go signal to start again, and perhaps add the icing to his second game with a goal. McClean is 15/2 to score anytime; just hope that he replicates the way he bothered the Bosnian defense in their last outing.
