            Serbia vs Hungary Preview, Tips & Stats

            Hungary make the trip to the Red Star Stadium to face Serbia in the fourth game of the UEFA Euro Qualifiers this Thursday. Both sides are stuck on seven points at the top of the group, making this fixture the equivalent of a six point game for Serbia and Hungary.

            Serbia sit second in Group G after three games. Dragan Stojkovic’s side have two wins and one draw, leaving them on seven points. However, due to conceding a goal, Serbia are second in the group on goal difference.

            Dusan Tadic and Dusan Vlahovic both scored in the match day one’s clash against Lithuania. Serbia controlled the game with 60% of the possession and 15 shots with four of those being on target. Next was a trip to Montenegro where Serbia once again controlled possession with 66% of the ball. Of their nine shots, two were on target as Vlahovic scored once again, both late on in the 78th minute and the fifth minute of extra time. The most recent Qualifying game came against Bulgaria. Serbia went behind early in the second half as Kiril Despodov scored for Bulgaria, however, Darko Lazovic scored deep into extra time to earn a 1 - 1 draw for Serbia.

            In the midst of these Qualifiers, Serbia played a friendly against Jordan. Strahinja Erakovic scored and Dejan Joveljic bagged a brace in the 3 - 2 win.

            Hungary sit top of Group G with seven points after three games. Marco Rossi’s team also has two wins and one draw. Hungary have scored five goals so far and haven’t yet conceded, giving them the superior goal difference and the spot at the top.

            The first game of the Qualifiers for Hungary was against Bulgaria. Balint Vecsei, Dominik Szoboszlai and Martin Adam all scored in the 3 - 0 demolition of Bulgaria where Hungary had nine shots on target. However, next was a goalless draw to Montenegro where despite having 73% of the possession, Hungary only had nine shots with only one of those being on target. The last game of the previous international break was against Lithuania. Barnabas Varga grabbed his first ever goal for his country and Roland Sallai also scored in the 2 - 0 win.

            Hungary also played a friendly in the last international break. Estonia were the opponents as Adam scored the only goal of the game as Hungary won 1 - 0.

            Serbia and Hungary have met just three times in their histories and is a relatively new fixture with the first game between the two coming in 2020. Both sides have one win to their name and there has been one draw. The most recent win went Serbia’s way with a 1 - 0 win in an international friendly in 2022.

            Stojkovic, who has managed his national side since 2021, has switched between a 3 - 4 - 2 - 1 and a 3 - 4 - 3 in his last couple of games with Serbia. Stojkovic’s side is most recognisable through the players on the wings. Sergej Milinkovic-Savic plays in Serie A with Lazio and Dusan Tadic currently plays at Fenerbache but had famous stints at Southampton and Ajax. Juventus’ Vlahovic is also a key player for Serbia, often among the goals.

            Rossi has been head coach of Hungary since 2018 and usually prefers a 3 - 4 - 2 - 1 formation. A newer name to the Hungary national team is that of Barnabas Varga who has made just three appearances but looks to have solidified his position with Liverpool’s Szoboszlai and Philadelphia Union’s Daniel Gazdag supporting from the wings.
