Hungary vs Poland Prediction & Match Preview



Hungary vs Poland Prediction & Match Preview



25 March 2021 19:45 UK/ 20:45 CET World Cup Qual

Hungary and Poland square off against each other at Groupama Arena in what is expected to be one of the most entertaining games of Thursday’s program. 

The Hungarians did well to qualify for the Euro 2021 finals, meaning that they are high on confidence ahead of the visit of Poland. Partizan Belgrade attacker Holender, who has been in a fine form of late, has received a call-up, but he is unlikely to start. 

Leipzig towering defender Vilmos Tamas Orban is undisputedly the biggest star in Marco Rossi’s team.

The Poles, on the other hand, aim to make amends for back-to-back defeats to Italy and Netherlands. 

Bayern Munchen attacker Robert Lewandowski will once again lead the line for the visitors, and given the attacking potentials of the two sides, we believe that there is a big value in betting on both teams to score.

Team News:

Hungary's star midfielder Dominik Szoboszlai is ruled out with a thigh injury, which is a huge blow for them at the start of their qualifying campaign.

Freiburg's Roland Sallai would provide the biggest attacking threat in Szoboszlai's absence if he is to start on Thursday.

Veteran striker Adam Szalai returns to the squad having missed the most recent international break and could lead the line on his own.

For Poland, it remains to be seen how Sousa will set up for his first match in charge, but the Portuguese boss may adopt the same 4-1-4-1 formation used previously by Brzeczek.

Captain Lewandowski is available after German chancellor Angela Merkel afforded the Bayern Munich striker an exemption from the current COVID-19 restrictions that would have forced him to quarantine for two weeks upon his return.

Forward Arkadiusz Milik could be handed a start up front alongside Lewandowski after a solid start to life at Ligue 1 outfit Marseille.

Brighton & Hove Albion's Jakub Moder should feature in central midfield alongside Piotr Zielinski, with Leeds United's Mateusz Klich unavailable, having tested positive for coronavirus.

Hungary possible starting lineup:
Gulacsi; Fiola, Lang, Orban, At. Szalai; Sallai, Kleinheisler, Nagy, Kalmar, K Varga; Ad. Szalai

Poland possible starting lineup:
Szczesny; Bereszynski, Glik, Bednarek, Rybus; Krychowiak; Szymanski, Zielinski, Moder, Grosicki; Lewandowski
