The national team of Switzerland will host the team of Hungary at their home ground on the upcoming Saturday within the matchday 9 of the 2018 World Cup qualification tournament. Bookmakers are on the future hosts’ side in this couple, which desperately need a victory. The Hungarian side, in its turn, does not claim anything and is going to the mountain country, as tourists.
The Switzerland national team is having a great qualifying tournament: eight victories in eight games, but the first position in group B is still not guaranteed with such a terrific statistics. The only competitors of the Watchmen, the national team of Portugal, is right behind the Swiss with only three points less, but with better goal difference as well as a head-to-head encounter in the last tenth round of the competition. I.e. the Switzerland national team needs to defeat the Hungarians and have a draw with the Iberians in Portugal to keep the first position in the peloton.
The Hungary national team had a very quality Euro 2016 qualification tournament, the Hungarians shone on the football fields of France in the final part of the European forum, but after that, they were cracked. The future guests didn’t look well in the 2018 WC qualification, noticeably losing competition to Portugal, with which they battled in France and Switzerland.
The Switzerland national team will try not only defeat the failed Hungarians in the last domestic match of the qualification cycle, but to improve the goal difference as well. A bet on the favorite looks logical in this couple and the Swiss have good chances on defeating the opponents.
Prediction for the match: Switzerland to win with -1.5 Asian handicap
