Betting Preview – Portugal vs Hungary

On Wednesday afternoon a misfiring Portugal side face top of the group Hungary, in a clash that will settle who is top dog in group F. The Hungarians have been a revelation during this tournament, far and away the best side in a tough section.

Cristiano Ronaldo’s woes in front of goal has had a detrimental effect on the squad morale. Still the Selaccao keep the odds tumbling, 4/9 to collect their first three points of Euro 2016. Hungary, the only side with a win in the group, are just one surprise away from history, and 10/1 is the selected odds for the men in Green to secure the victory.Cristiano Ronaldo

Despite the disastrous missed penalty and altogether his scoring touch missing, CR7 is 4/5 to get his tournament off the ground. The lack of an offensive spearhead has been an issue amongst the Portuguese ranks for years. Eder may step into this role as an interim striker, but is definitely not the solution. The former Swansea man is just 2/1 to score on his European Championships debut.

One goal could be enough for this ageing Portugal outfit. They have enough defensive guile and experience to close out a slight advantage, so may settle in these circumstances. A 1-0 win can be found at 9/2

Of course, it not beyond the Hunagrian’s to go on and retain their unbeaten record in France. A goalless draw fetches odds of 8/1. If you fancy them to go one step further and deny Portugal advancing to round two, a 1-0 win is 20/1 at selected bookies.

Safe Bet – Portugal and under 2.5 goals – 2/1

Long Shot – Hungary to win 2-0 – 80/1
