    We have reached the final round of fixtures in 2022/23 Nations League A Group 3 and on the 26th of September we have a meeting between Hungary and Italy.

    The game will be played at the Puskás Aréna, Budapest and the hosts begin the match sitting top of the group on 10 points while the visitors are in second place on 8 points.

    Hungary come into the game on the back of another excellent result as they beat Germany 1-0 in Leipzig. The only goal of the match was scored in the 17th minute and Hungary managed to prevent the Germans from scoring in-front of their own fans.

    That was the second successive away win in the Nations League for Hungary following the outstanding 4-0 win over England at Molineux. Hungary opened the scoring in the 16th minute and as England pressed forward in the latter stages, they scored 3 goals in the final 20 minutes of the match.

    Trends show Hungary are undefeated in 8 of their last 9 Nations League fixtures. They are undefeated in 7 of their 8 home Nations League games and have defeated Greece, Estonia, Finland, Turkey, and England.

    There have been under 2.5 goals scored in each of Hungary’s last 4 home Nations League matches and in 6 of their last 7 on home soil.

    Italy make the trip to Budapest having recorded a 1-0 win at home over England on Friday night.

    The only goal of the game was scored in the 68th minute and it was an important victory for the Italians that keeps them in the hunt to finish top of the group.

    Italy are undefeated in 4 of their 5 2022/23 Nations League fixtures. They have beat England and Hungary at home plus picked up a point in draws at home against Germany and away to England.

    However, there was one huge defeat and that came in Germany as Italy lost 5-2, during which they were 5-0 down after 69 minutes.

    Away form in the Nations League shows Italy are undefeated in 5 of their last 6 matches. They have won 3 of those 6 games and have seen under 2.5 goals in 6 of their 7 away Nations League matches to date.

    Team news and Hungary are set to go with the same starting XI from the win over Germany. That means Adam Szalai will play in attack and will be supported by Dominik Szoboszlai.

    Italy will also be tempted to go with the same team from Friday night. Giacomo Raspadori should keep his place in attack following his winning goal against England.

    We expect to see under 2.5 goals in this game and just one goal could be enough to take maximum points. A win for Italy would move them above Hungary in the table and they could come away with a 1-0 victory.
