England vs Hungary Betting PreviewEngland have won 6 of their 7 qualifying matches so far and are closing on securing qualification for the World Cup in Qatar next year. Gareth Southgate's men overcame a hostile atmosphere in Budapest with a devastating second-half performance in a 4-0 win last month. Then the Three Lions maintained their charge towards qualification for next year’s World Cup with a crushing away victory against Andorra (5-0) few days ago. Poland have pushed the Three Lions hard in a 2-1 loss and a 1-1 draw, but five other games have produced a clean-sweep of wins by an aggregate score of 20-0.
Hungary suffered a 1-0 defeat against Albania on Saturday and now trail them by 5 points. Their hopes to make the play-offs are virtually over, having lost three of the four World Cup qualifiers played after a decent Euro 2020 campaign this summer. Their other two defeats came at the hands of Albania (1-0 away on 5th September) and England (0-4 at home). The Magyar have only defeated Andorra at home with a narrow 2-1 victory and have failed to score in three of their last four World Cup qualifiers.
Best OddsEngland are 3/20 to win with Unibet, the draw is available at 8/1 with Betfair while Hungary to upset the Three Lions is backable at 28/1 with BetVictor.
England (4-2-3-1): Pickford; Walker, Stones, Mings, Chilwell; Rice, Henderson; Sterling, Mount, Grealish; Kane
The likes of Raheem Sterling, Harry Kane, Mason Mount and Jack Grealish are likely to return from the off in the attacking positions. Declan Rice and Jordan Henderson are set to form the midfield duo in place of the injured Kalvin Phillips and Jude Bellingham. Jordan Pickford will be back in goal, while Kyle Walker seems certain to return at right-back but Ben Chilwell will be hoping to get another start on the opposite flank if Luke Shaw is not fit to play. With Harry Maguire sidelined, John Stones and Tyrone Mings are expect to form the centre-back pair.
Hungary (3-4-2-1): Gulacsi; Orban, At. Szalai, Lang; Nego, A. Nagy, Kleinheisler, Z. Nagy; Schon, Szoboszlai; Sallai
Rossi's side did not report any fresh injury concerns from Saturday's defeat. Anyway, defender Endre Botka is suspended so Adam Lang could start in the absence of the injured Attila Fiola in a possible 3-4-2-1 system in which Daniel Salloi is expected to be replaced in attack by Szabolcs Schon. Laszlo Kleinheisler could also be reintroduced to the midfield at Wembley while highly-rated Dominik Szoboszlai will start as offensive midfield behind the central striker Roland Sallai.
England v Hungary PredictionsEngland have won 11 of their last 14 matches at home, are on a run of 12 successive World Cup qualifying victories on home soil and their only defeat in 2021 was on penalties to Italy in the European Championship. Hungary have lost their golden touch since Euro 2020, so we expect the Three Lions to breeze through this game and win without conceding. 3-0 and 4-0 are the most likely correct score, while Raheem Sterling is our pick in the anytime goalscorer market.
