The match

It is lights on at the Puskas Arena, with Hungary facing off against Greece. The Magyars were impressive in their Nations League campaign, where they once again defied all odds to slightly miss out on top spot in a group containing heavyweights Germany, Italy and England. It is clear that the November slot is being utilised for experimentation, with a much-changed Hungarian side conceding a 2-2 draw against Luxembourg. Do not let that result fool you however, with regards to the hosts’ defensive efficiency. They have kept clean sheets in each of their last four victories, shutting out teams like Germany and England.

With regards to Greece, a much-changed lineup took the field against Malta, conceding an entertaining 2-2 draw. Gus Poyet has the chance to try out different shapes and tactics, while he has now remained unbeaten in seven of his first nine games in charge. The common element in the majority of the games he has overseen has to be defensive solidity and the lack of goals. Greece have kept five clean sheets in their last nine, while six of those games have featured Under 2.5 goals. With regards to their recent tradition, one could call it quite mixed, with their record in Hungary being 3-1-2 in their previous six meetings.

Key Statistics

The bet of our experts

Hungary and Greece both stumbled in their recent friendlies, yet despite the entertaining nature of those games, both sides remain defensive to their core. With that in mind, backing the Under 2.5 goals is the way to go here.
