Our prediction for this Nations League match:
Groupama Arena will host Thursday’s football game between Hungary and Estonia, the two teams who sit in the last two positions in Group 2. The Hungarians have recorded only one win in the process, with the team beating Greece and home, whilst the Estonians have yet to register a win in the UEFA Nations League. Seeing that a win over Estonia could see Hungary overtake Greece in the second place in the standings, we believe that there is a big value in betting on the hosts. A man to watch in the home team will be Hoffenheim attacker Adam Szalai, who is likely to pose a big threat for the opposition defenders. When the two teams met in Tallinn earlier in the process, they played out a thrilling 3-3 draw and we believe that fans are going to see yet another high-scoring affair on Thursday evening.
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 (Estonia):
Former Soviet republic Estonia declared its independence on August 20, 1991 and they have been participating in FIFA and UEFA competitions ever since. The Estonians have yet to make it to the finals of a major tournament, but they often made life difficult for European giants in the qualifiers.
In 2010 Estonia did well to beat Serbia in Belgrade in the Euro 2012 qualifiers, but they eventually failed to qualify for the showpiece tournament. “The Blueshirts” welcome their rivals at Le Coq Arena in Tallinn and the capacity of the stadium is 10.500. Sergei Zenjov, who played for the likes of Blackpool, Karpaty and Torpedo Moscow in the past is one of the most famous Estonian footballers.
Ragnar Klavan is yet another notable footballer who plays for both Estonia national football team and Liverpool. The Estonians play their home games in blue shirts and black shorts, while they wear white shirts and white shorts when playing on the travels.
