Republic of Ireland v Hungary: Prediction, Tips and Odds

Hungary’s preparations for Euro 2024 continue on Tuesday night when they take on the Republic of Ireland at the Aviva Stadium.

The Magyars are looking in good shape leading into the major tournament in Germany, as they currently find themselves on a 14-game unbeaten run.

With the Republic of Ireland missing some key personnel for this clash in Dublin, Marco Rossi’s men might well be able to pick up another confidence-boosting win ahead of their campaign in Germany this summer.

Republic of Ireland v Hungary betting tips and predictions

Hungary to win to nil - 3/1

The Hungarians are getting ready to face hosts Germany, Scotland and Switzerland in Group A at Euro 2024 and this clash with Ireland is followed by a game against Israel on Saturday before the major tournament gets underway.

Both games offer an opportunity for Rossi to see the majority of his squad in action but he will be eager to continue his side’s 14-match unbeaten run going into the Euros.

Hungary currently find themselves in 26th place in the FIFA world rankings, while the Republic of Ireland occupy 60th spot.

While the Hungarians have come on leaps and bounds in recent years, Ireland have stagnated and are still searching for the next crop of players that could take them back to a major tournament.

The last two games between these sides in 2012 and 2021 have ended goalless but Hungary now have the quality to win this encounter on Tuesday night.

Hungary have kept two clean sheets in their last two games against Turkey and Kosovo heading into this game and the visitors to win to nil at the Aviva Stadium looks to be the way to go.

Dominik Szoboszlai to score anytime - 3/1

The biggest name in Hungarian football right now and the captain of the national side, Dominik Szoboszlai, will have a key role to play if his country are to progress through to the knockout stages of Euro 2024.

Scoring in four of Hungary’s last five games, Szoboszlai has been shining for his country in recent outings.

With a total of five goals over the course of those last five games, Szoboszlai has to be worth considering in the anytime goalscorer market.

Not only is the Liverpool star able to pick up pockets of space in and around the penalty areas, the 23-year-old is also the team's first-choice penalty taker.

At odds of 3/1, Szoboszlai in the anytime goalscorer market will attract plenty of admirers for this encounter at the Aviva.

Josh Cullen to be booked - 11/2

Set to play in the heart of midfield and protect a backline that will be missing the injured Nathan Collins, Josh Cullen could be set for a busy evening.

Hungary have attacking threats that will look to go from deep, including skipper Szoboszlai, who has shown over recent months how dangerous he can be going forward.

In order to keep the Liverpool man quiet, Cullen will have to watch Szoboszlai closely and might well end up in the referee’s book for his troubles.

No player picked up more yellow cards for Burnley in the Premier League last season than Cullen and the 28-year-old is a good price at 11/2 to be carded against the Hungarians on Tuesday.
