Scotland v Hungary Prediction, Tips and Odds: Hungarians to break Scottish hearts

Scotland and Hungary meet in Stuttgart on Sunday in a do or die Euros fixture as Group A reaches its conclusion.

Scotland have picked up one point from their opening two games and defeat would see them eliminated, while a draw is unlikely to be enough to see them qualify as one of the best-ranked third-placed teams.

The top two is out of reach for Hungary and only a win will do if they are to stand any chance of reaching the next stage after losing their opening two fixtures.

Scotland v Hungary: betting tips and predictions

Hungary to win - 29/20

Scotland were thrashed by Germany in their opener but put in a much-improved display to claim a draw with Switzerland in their second game, taking an early lead through Scott McTominay before Xherdan Shaqiri pounced on an error and levelled things up with a wonder goal.

The Tartan Army have fared better than the Hungarians when it comes to results, but in terms of performances the Magyars have probably looked the better side.

Hungary conceded an early goal against Switzerland and were left chasing the game as they slipped two behind. They did manage to pull a goal back and were pushing for an equaliser before an injury-time strike killed the game off and sealed a Swiss win.

Against Germany, Hungary competed well at stages but fell short as they slipped to a 2-0 loss.

In contrast, Scotland were steamrolled by Germany and rode their luck at times against Switzerland - who saw two goals chalked off for offside in that stalemate

Hungary go into the game knowing only a win will do and their performances suggest they may get it against Scotland, whether or not that will be enough to see them advance remains to be seen.

Calum McGregor to be booked - 15/4

Given just how much is at stake here it would be no surprise to see a few bookings dished out in this clash between two fairly physical teams and Scotand’s Callum McGregor looks a good big-price option to be booked.

McGregor hasn’t been shown a card yet at the Euros, but was incredibly lucky to avoid one in the defeat to the host nation after scything down Ilkay Gundogan.

As he is without a caution, the Celtic man could find himself in a position to ‘take one for the team’ on Sunday and he is no stranger to the physical side of the game - having committed 10 fouls in the final four Scottish Premiership fixtures of the campaign. 

Attila Fiola to be booked - 6/4

For the Hungarians, Attila Fiola looks like the best candidate for a card despite the fact he is yet to receive one at Euro 2024.

Like McGregor, he is perhaps lucky not to have been shown a yellow card yet, having committed five fouls in total across two games.

Fiola has 13 yellow cards and one red in 55 games for his country and was booked four times in just 12 league games for Fehervar last season.

This game looks a good opportunity to focus on the card markets and backing players who are yet to be booked seems the better option, which makes Fiola a clear candidate to be booked for Hungary.
