One of most interesting groups of European qualifications is the Group E where all teams are of similar quality and four of them fight for the first two places. Hungary occupies the second place right now and has the same number of points like leading Croatia, while Slovakia won three points fewer. This will be the first match for Hungary in this term, while Slovakia suffered a sound defeat at home on last Friday. Slovakia won Hungary in their first match by 2-0.
At the beginning of the qualifications Hungary lost the only qualifier, right to Slovakia away 2-0. After that the Hungarians won three matches in a row where definitely the most valuable was the one against Croatia, which they defeated by 2-1 after a turnaround. They also won Azerbaijan, while in the previous round they won Wales at home by 1-0. Midfielder Patkai was the hero of match as he scored the only goal ten minutes before the end. The Hungarians played a friendly with Montenegro last week and they lost despite having 2-1 lead, although we need to remember that the reserve team was on the pitch.
Slovakia had a pretty good situation until Friday when they faced Croatia at. It was a turning point and if they won they would come one step from qualifying for the European Championship but exactly the opposite happened. They were defeated by sound 4-0 and this was their second defeat since Wales defeated them before. Victory over Hungary in the first round was pretty much expected as well as the away one over Azerbaijan. They held their ground against Croatia till the end of the first half and then everything fell apart. They received the first goal in the very finish first half, and the second at the beginning of the second one and that was the end of hope. After such a debacle the team will likely undergo changes.
The match is very important for both teams but the Slovaks are shaken after heavy defeat by Croatia. The Hungarians play well in front of their fans and we believe that will win, although a draw is also a likely outcome.
