The Hungarians have been playing impressively this edition of the UEFA Nations League. Before the start of the competition, they were labeled as outsiders in a group with Italy, England, and Germany, but they denied this.
Coach Marco Rossi’s team won another great victory against Germany in Leipzig on Friday. Adam Szalai’s goal silenced the Red Bull Arena and defeated the favored Germans with a score of 1-0.
In this way, they registered their third victory in this competition, so before the last round, they are in first place with 10 points. In the last game against Italy, they will need one point to finish as the leaders and advance to the semi-finals.
The Italians also enter this match in a winning mood. On Friday, they beat England 1-0 in front of their fans, and Giacomo Raspadori scored the winning goal.
Before the last game, the Italians have eight points and can finish first if they win in Budapest. They entered this competition without any pressure as their goal is to prepare young players for the upcoming EURO 2024 qualifiers.
Coach Roberto Mancini gave a chance to many talented individuals, and several of them used that space in the best possible way. Among the more experienced players, there are Bonucci, Jorginho, and Toloi, while the attacking tandem consists of the talented Scamacca and Raspadori.
In the first meeting between these two national teams in the UEFA Nations League, the Italians won 2-1 in Cesena.
Hungary (3-4-2-1): Gulacsi; Lang, Orban, At. Szalai; Fiola, Schafer, Gazdag, Kerkez; A. Nagy, Szoboszlai; Ad. Szalai
Italy (3-5-2): Donnarumma; Toloi, Bonucci, Bastoni; Di Lorenzo, Barella, Jorginho, Frattesi, Dimarco; Raspadori, Immobile
We expect an extremely tough match because the result is significant for both national teams. We believe that the Hungarians will be especially careful because even one point is enough for them to take first place. The Italians are recognizable as a disciplined team, so we believe that they will patiently wait for the opportunity to score.
