Germany vs Hungary: prediction for the UEFA Nations League game
The German national team have looked colourless in the current Nations League. They haven't lost a game in Group 3, but the first three matches ended in draws - all with the same score of 1:1. In the last outing, Germany managed to get a high-scoring victory over Italy (5:2), which allowed them to climb to the 2nd line in the table.
Hungary was the main underdog of Group 3, and yet the Hungarians delivered the best results and currently top the table with seven points from four games. In June, they beat England twice (1:0, 4:0) and managed to hold Germany to a 1:1 draw. In their last game, the Hungarians suffered a defeat to Italy (1:2). The team's top scorer Roland Sallai is out injured and won't be able to play tonight.
Germany scored at least twice in 7 games out of 8.
Germany conceded in each of their last 5 games.
The hosts are intent to finish top of the group, and they will hope to capitalize on their home advantage and collect three points in the upcoming game. Hungary rarely suffered defeats lately, but the Germans have a better team on paper. Plus, Hungary's key attacking player is out injured, and it will be difficult to create dangerous scoring chances without him.
Our prediction - Asian handicap (-1.5) to Germany
We expect both sides to score tonight. The Germans should be able to convert two or three scoring chances at their home arena, and the Hungarians, who have proved themselves a tough opponent in the first matches, at the very least should answer with one goal. Take the over.
Second bet - total over 2.5 goals
