Scotland v Hungary Euro 2024 Betting Tips 23/06/24

Scotland v Hungary betting tips

Scotland and Hungary are set to battle it out for a third-place spot in Euros Group A on Sunday, so enjoy our Scotland v Hungary Euro 2024 Betting Tips. The Tartan Army gave themselves a chance of qualifying after holding Switzerland to a draw on Wednesday. Hungary, however, has yet to record a point at Euro 2024 and must win to stand any hope of reaching the knockouts as one of the best third-placed teams. Will either side get enough points on the board to progress? This fixture kicks off at 8 p.m. on Sunday. It will be shown live on the BBC.

Form and Team News

Scotland started their Euro 2024 campaign with a 5-1 defeat against Germany in the opening match. But Steve Clarke’s side responded with a strong showing against Switzerland last time out. The Tartan Army led through Scott McTominay’s goal before conceding later in the first half. Scotland are now third in Group A on one point, but with a -4 goal difference. Hungary lost both of their opening Euros matches to Switzerland (3-1) and Germany (2-0). These setbacks leave Marco Rossi’s outfit at the foot of Group A, also with a -4 goal difference.

The latest team news shows that Scottish defender Kieran Tierney will be out with a hamstring issue. Defender Ryan Porteous will also miss out through suspension. Hungary have no injuries or suspensions ahead of this clash.

Match Winner Bet

As Scotland and Hungary still have an opportunity to reach the Euro 2024 knockout rounds, a cagey contest is expected. Ultimately, a Scottish win appears unlikely due to their recent form. The Tartan Army have won just once in their previous 10 in all competitions. This sole victory came against a low-ranked Gibraltar side. With Betfred offering odds of 7/4, the bookies also feel a Scotland win is an outside bet. Hungary’s form has dipped at the wrong time, as they have lost three of their last four in all competitions. Before this downturn, the Magyars were undefeated in 14 consecutive matches. Hungary have plenty of quality and are therefore considered favourites to bounce back. At 8/5, QuinnBet has the best odds for a Hungary triumph. Yet, we feel that neither side will throw too much at this game, which could lead to a tight Euro stalemate. In addition, Scotland have drawn two of their previous three games. Our tip for Scotland vs Hungary is to back a draw at 29/10, offered by Betfair.

Over/Under Betting

To complement a potential Scotland vs Hungary draw, under 2.5 goals could be a solid pick. Scotland are historically low scorer at the Euros and has only scored over one team goal once in 11 fixtures. The Tartan Army also see overall low-scoring matches, with under 2.5 landing in eight of their last 11 Euros matches. Hungary have struggled to get things going in attack at Euro 2024 too, scoring just once in their two matches. Rossi’s side have also seen under 2.5 total goals in three of their last six games. Sticking with a low-scorer seems like a solid pick, and Bet365 currently has the best value for under 2.5 goals at 11/10.

Anytime Goalscorer Bets

Although Scotland vs Hungary could be cagey, two players have the potential to provide a moment of inspiration in front of goal. Firstly, Hungary’s talisman Dominik Szoboszlai has an eye for goal and has struck five times in his last nine internationals. The Liverpool midfielder also went agonisingly close with a stunning free-kick in the defeat against Germany last time out, only to be denied by Manuel Neuer. The bookies also have decent value on a possible Szoboszlai goal, and Paddy Power will return odds of 13/5. After his goalscoring heroics against Switzerland on Wednesday, we are tipping Scotland’s all-action midfielder Scott McTominay to score against Hungary. McTominay showed his qualities as a box-to-box midfielder in the Switzerland draw, winning the ball in his own area and racing into the Swiss half to finish a flowing counter-attack. It was the Man United man’s eighth international goal in his previous 15. As one of Scotland’s most threatening players in the final third, we feel McTominay has the potential to strike again in Group A. Bet365 also has good potential returns on a McTominay anytime goal at 3/1.

Scotland has given themselves a fighting chance of reaching their first-ever major tournament knockout round. However, a likely win is required over a stuttering Hungary for the Tartan Army to progress. The Magyars also have a chance to qualify if they win, so the central European nation will be desperate to hit back in Group A.
