scotland-vs-hungary-euro-2024-prediction scotland-vs-hungary-euro-2024-prediction

Scotland's final game of the Group Stage and, as an England fan, hopefully, their final game of Euros 2024, will see them take on Hungary at the MHPArena in Stuttgart - kick-off time of 20:00 GMT. A draw would do neither team any good as it would see both teams crash out in the Group Stage. So, how will this match go on to play out? Well, this is the question I aim to answer below, so keep on reading to find out more.

🏆 Scotland vs Hungary: Who Will Win?

Scotland's Euro 2024 campaign got off to the worst start possible as they were dispatched 5-1 by Germany, putting a big dent in their goal difference which could prove to be fatal come the end of Round Three. They were a little bit better against the Swiss in their previous match, but they really could have done with winning that match. Now the pressure is on them to win to ensure at least a top three finish, and it will be interesting to see how they cope with it.

Hungary were one of my dark horses to do well in this competition, but they have been disappointing, to say the least. Okay, there is no shame in losing to Germany, but they will be disappointed by their showing in their 3-1 defeat to the Swiss. As a result of these two defeats, they have it all to do to get out of the group. Even a win here might not be good enough to see them pass as one of the four best third-placed teams.

I do not think either team will need to wait a few days to see if they have made it through as I can see this match ending in a 1-1 stalemate. Such a result would knock both teams out.

My Prediction: 🏆 Scotland 1 Hungary 1 ⚽

💯 Scotland vs Hungary Match Odds

Established and new UK betting sites would be foolish not to offer odds and markets for Euro 2024, but many sites that you encounter will be mediocre at best. Since you deserve to be betting at the best bookies around, below you will find five that I truly believe are great bookmakers. You will also find the odds that they are offering for some popular markets regarding this Scotland vs Hungary match.

Those who would like to find out more about any of these five sports betting sites before signing up with them can find all they need to know on our bookmaker reviews page.

🏅 Scotland vs Hungary: Match Winner Odds

How have these two teams fared against each other in past matches? Well, they have played each other a total of nine times, and Hungary have won four of those compared to Scotland's three - there has been two drawn matches. However, the last time these two nations met on the football field was over six years ago, so these results cannot be used as a benchmark.

The bookmakers have Hungary as the slight favourites for this match, but you can tell from the odds in the table below that they really do not have any idea as to where this match will go. If you want to bet on the match winner odds, check out the following table:

⚽ Scotland vs Hungary: Both Teams To Score Odds

When it comes to international football, the bookies are usually indecisive when it comes to both teams to score market. However, for this Scotland vs Hungary game, they are pretty certain that both teams will find the back of the net in this game. I agree with them in this case, and below you can find the BTTS odds:

BTTS
Yes1.591.591.571.521.57
No2.262.262.252.142.20

🥅 Scotland vs Hungary: Over/Under 2.5 Goals Odds

Usually when the bookmakers are not sure as to which way the BTTS market will go, they tend to also be circumspect when it comes to the over/under 2.5 goals market. However, they have moved away from this norm for this match as they are pretty certain that there will be over 2.5 goals scored. Those who are interested can find the over/under 2.5 goals odds in the following table:

Over/Under 2.5 Goals
Over 2.51.681.681.701.651.70
Under 2.52.072.072.102.082.15

✔️ Scotland vs Hungary - Betting Tips

This betting guide is now going to move from the top Scotland vs Hungary odds to some top Scotland vs Hungary betting tips. For those who are planning to use a free bets that they have earned, I recommend that you still take the time to check out different betting tips. Knowledge is power at the end of the day.

  • Tip 1: Bet on a draw: For me, these two teams are pretty evenly matched on paper, and I think they will end up being evenly matched on the field as well. Neither team has set the stage alight at this tournament, and I can just see them cancelling each other out. A draw does no good for either team, but it is as it is. Those who want to also back a draw can find odds of 3.85 at BetUK Sports.
  • Tip 2: Bet on both teams to score: The Scots have conceded six goals in two matches, while the Hungarians have conceded five, so it is fair to say that they have not been at their best defensively. Since both teams need to win here, there should be space to exploit, and I can see both teams finding the back of the net. Those who agree that both teams will score can make use of odds of 1.57 at 10Bet.
  • Tip 3: Back Szoboszlai to score: The Liverpool man was a bit absent against the Swiss in their first match, but he was Hungary's best player against Germany, coming close to scoring on one occasion. He will be confident of running the show against opposition such as Scotland, and I can see him finding the back of the net. If you can too, LeoVegas are offering odds of 3.30 at present.
  • Tip 4: Bet on a 1-1 correct score: Those who are looking to place a slightly riskier bet with higher potential returns can check out the correct score market. As you know already, I think this game will end 1-1 and knock both teams out. If you agree with this scoreline, Betiton Sport are offering odds of 6.70 for this exact scoreline.

N.B. Make sure that you gamble responsibly. Set yourself a budget and stick to it. Set up deposit limits.

1️⃣Scotland Update

Scotland went into Euro 2024 with high hopes of making it through the Group Stage, but their dreams, alongside those of 200,000 Scottish fans who made the journey to Germany, could be coming to an abrupt end on Sunday evening. They need to win big and hope that there is a six-goal swing between them and Switzerland to claim second spot. Otherwise, there will be a nervous wait to see if they will progress.

One player who I am going to keep an eye on is John McGinn as he has had a poor tournament so far. However, as a Villa fan, I know the qualities that he possesses. If he plays to the best of his ability, he could drag Scotland over the winning line. Here are their previous five results:

2️⃣ Hungary Update

Hungary have improved a lot in recent years, so they would have entered this tournament pretty confident in their ability to make it out of the group. However, they have performed poorly in their first two matches and are now running the risk of being eliminated before the knockout stages start. They have to beat Scotland and hope that other results will go their way from the other groups.

They are not one of those teams that have well-known names all over the field, but they always work together to form a commendable side. Apart from Szoboszlai, one other Hungarian who is worth keeping an eye on is Varga as he has an eye for goal - in 13 appearances for his country, he has 7 goals. Below are their previous five results:
