Hungary to hold Italy and qualify for semi-finals
Hungary only need to avoid defeat at home at the Puskás Aréna in their UEFA Nations League showdown match with Italy to top a pool containing footballing heavyweights Gli Azzurri, Germany, and England. The Magyarok have been the story of this year's tournament, and a draw in front of a partisan crowd in Budapest would seal a remarkable year for the nation. Read our preview here:
Marco Rossi has presided over the last four years as head coach, masterminding a rise back to relevance with some deeply impressive results and performances. His charges beat Germany 1-0 in their own backyard last week, making the most of set pieces and a paucity of possession to inflict Hansi Flick's first defeat in charge of Die Mannschaft. Sole striker Ádám Szalai grabbed that goal, and should once again lead the line in an unchanged XI. The deeper midfield duo of András Schäfer and Ádám Nagy, the latter of whom plies his trade for Serie B outfit Pisa, will have to work extremely hard to prevent the hosts from being smothered, but have proven adept at shackling more vaunted opponents.
A Rasp-ing shot
Napoli forward Giacomo Raspadori enhanced his growing reputation with his fourth goal for his national side, collecting a long ball brilliantly before firing into the far corner to relegate England to the 'B' pool with a game to spare. Alongside the aerially imposing Gianluca Scamacca up top, Roberto Mancini has a frontline that are both well before their peak in terms of development. He too could be tempted to name the same starting lineup with no fresh injury concerns or suspensions to concern himself with.
Casumo have odds of 3.10 for a draw that would mark another high point in recent years for Hungary.
