Our prediction for this match:
Friday’s football game at Puskas Arena pits together Hungary and Uruguay, the two teams who face each other in a friendly. The Hungarians will use this match as a preparation for Tuesday’s qualifier against Wales, meaning that head coach Marco Rossi is likely to mix the squad. Uruguay boss Oscar Tabarez, on the other hand, welcomes Luis Suarez back to the starting XI.
The Barcelona ace, who has overcome his injury, is likely to prove a handful for the opposition defenders. Since PSG ace Edinson Cavani is back to the squad as well, we believe that punters can find value in betting on the South American side. It has been 65 years since the two teams last met on the international stage. Back then Hungary outplayed Uruguay 4-2 at the 1954 World Cup finals, and the time has come for the Uruguayans to get their revenge on the Hungarians.
Highlighted Player (Adam Nagy):
Adam Nagy is a Hungarian footballer who plays for Serie A side Bologna as a midfielder. Nagy began his professional career at Ferencvaros and he made 26 appearances in the league for the Hungarian club. The 178-cm-tall player impressed at Euro 2016 and, as a result, Bologna chiefs decided to sign him in the summer transfer window.
Adam Nagy joined the Serie A club on July 14, 2016 and he has been playing for the Rossoblu ever since. The Hungary international quickly established himself as a first-team regular at Bologna and in December 2016 he was voted the team’s Player of the Month.
Speaking of his international career, Adam Nagy played for Hungary U20 team at the 2015 FIFA U-20 World Cup and he made his senior debut for the Hungarian national team on September 7, 2015 in a 1-1 draw with Northern Ireland. His main position is defensive midfielder, but he is capable of playing a central midfielder as well.
Highlighted Team (Uruguay):
La Celeste are one of the most successful South American nations. Uruguay are frequently the champions of the continent having most recently won the tournament in 2011. They have won the Copa America a record 15 times including the first ever edition of the competition in 1916, while the team has also won FIFA World Cup in two occasions including the inaugural competition in 1930 when they defeated Argentina 4-2 in the final as hosts.
Their second World Cup title came in 1950 when Uruguay and Brazil played a legendary match which recorded a higher attendance than any other football match in the history of the game. Uruguay is the smallest country in the world to have won a World Cup by population, but La Celeste are proud of their football heritage which yielded some of the best footballers in the world over the course of history.
Most notable player of the current selection is Barcelona striker Luis Suarez, who is also the team’s top scorer with 45 goals to his name.
