The place in the main stage of the competition is already big achievement for Hungary. Times when Hungary was considered as one of the favorites at any competition are long gone. The team need to battle in the playoffs to gain the ticket to France after they finished third in their group. The two-leg matchup against Norway ended with two wins 1-0 and 2-1. Hungary played three friendlies in 2016, drawing match with Croatia, 1-1, Ivory Coast, 0-0, and losing to Germany, 0-2.
The opponents played their first head-to-head back in 1934. It was the only match won by Austria. The teams faced one another ten more times since then. Six of these matches ended with Hungary’s win and four other matches were draws. However, Austria proved they are more skilled side and they have solid chances to end this series and record first win over Hungary in last 80 years.
Prediction for the match: Austria to win.
