Betting tip EURO 2016: Hungary - Belgium
Sunday, 26.06.2016 at 21:00 o’clock
Is Hungary able to make the next sensation?
When Hungary meets Belgium at the eighth finals the team of Mark Wilmots is the clear favourite. On the other side the Storck eleven also has shown that they can cause trouble against favourite teams. We will see if this also happens against Belgium. Kick-off on the 26th of June is at 9 p.m..
Current Performance of Hungary
Who would have thought this? Hungary finishes the group F unbeaten as a winner. They have beaten Austria with a score of 2:0 and against Island they scored one point due to a drawn with a score of 1:1 as well as against Portugal (3:3). Against the Portugal they have led the game three times but in the end it only was a drawn. The joy of winning the group is big because the team of the German trainer Bernd Storck was an outsider and was called the weakest team in group f. Especially impressing was the pressing of Hungary that they have practiced in every match. In addition with Gabor Kiraly they have a great man as goal keeper. The 40 year old is a real calm point at the defence and gives his players at the front security. The team gets carried at the moment by a wave of euphoria. Before the EURO has started Bernd Stock has even said that he would think that this tournament would come two years too early. And now they are under the 16 best teams.
Current Performance of Belgium
If you compare the expectations from Hungary with the expectations from Belgium it’s an difference like day and night. While Hungary was the outsider, Belgium was one of the favourites for winning the EURO which is no wonder if you take a look at the players of the team from Mark Wilmots. It seems as if Wilmots is able again to form a unit out of the single players. A unit that has mastered the group stage sovereign despite the lost match against Italy with a score of 0:2. The question is if the young team is able to cope with the role of the favourite against Hungary. At the world championship in 2014 De Bruyne & Co also seem to be inhibited against weaker teams. But one sign that this will not happen in 2016 was the 3:0 against the Irish team where Belgium has shown their best performance at the tournament. In addition their defence has improved during the days of play and therefore they didn’t get any goal from the other side on the 2nd and 3rd day of play. At the offensive play they already have a lot of quality.
Betting tip for this match
The next match at the eighth finals where there is a clear favourite and also a clear outsider. But they shouldn’t underestimate Hungary as we have seen at the group stage. However we think that Belgium can handle them and will make it to the quarter finals.
