Match preview

2021 International Friendly, Hungary will play against with Cyprus at home. Hungary may have finished fourth in their Euro 2020 qualifying group, but they earned a place in the playoffs thanks to their second-placed finish in the previous Nations League campaign. Marco Rossi's side beat Bulgaria and Iceland in the playoffs and are now looking forward to their second successive appearances at the European Championship finals, which they will host along with 10 other countries. While excitement may be building in Hungary, though, the Magyars know they face the toughest of all tests if they are to advance out of a group that contains France, Germany and Portugal. However, Hungary should not be written off completely, having won six and drawn three since last tasting defeat in September 2020. That run of form helped them to finish top of Nations League League 3 Group B, and they are also second to England in qualifying for the 2022 World Cup. Rossi's men eased to a 4-1 win in Andorra in their most recent match at the end of March and also face the Republic of Ireland in a friendly before their opening Euro 2020 game against Portugal on June 15. Cyprus will not be taking part in the pan-European competition after finishing fourth in their qualifying group.

Nikos Kostenoglou's side also finished bottom of their Nations League group, though they have at least taken four points from three games in their World Cup qualifiers. After drawing 0-0 with Slovakia and losing 1-0 to Croatia, Cyprus beat Slovenia 1-0 last time out for a much-needed victory that would have boosted confidence in the camp. This month's friendlies with Hungary and Ukraine will be used as preparation for September's qualifiers against Malta, Russia and Slovakia.
