Our prediction for this Nations League match:
Serbia will be looking to get their revenge on Hungary for a 1-0 loss in Belgrade when the two neighbouring countries face each other at Puskas Arena. Both head coaches should use this match to rest several first-team regulars as Hungary and Serbia head into the game following the Euro 2021 playoffs final matches against Iceland and Scotland respectively. Ljubisa Tumbakovic’s men have yet to record a win in the process, and seeing that they have little to play for in Sunday’s clash, away win should not be considered.
The Hungarians are eager to overtake Russia in top position in Group 3, and given their rock-solid defence, we believe that there is a big value in betting on Marco Rossi’s men. Filip Djuricic could recover in time to face Hungary after missing the Scotland through illness. A man to watch in the home side will be former MLS star Nemanja Nikolic.
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 (Serbia):
Serbia have been playing as an independent nation since 2006. The Serbs made it to the 2010 FIFA World Cup finals and despite defeating star-studded Germany in the group stages of the showpiece tournament in South Africa, they eventually failed to book their place in the last 16. The Eagles, though, failed to qualify for the 2014 FIFA World Cup in Brazil as they experienced all sorts of problems in their qualifying group.
A number of top-class footballers played for Serbia and former Manchester United defender Nemanja Vidic is regarded as one of the best players in the history of the Serbian national team. Vidic scored two goals in 56 appearances for Serbia and he announced his retirement from the national team on 24 October, 2011.
The Eagles play their home game at Stadion Rajko Mitic and it has to be noted that they defeated Czech Republic 3-1 in their first international game under the name of Serbia. Serbia play their home games in red shirts and red shorts, while the colour of their away kit is white.
