Head to Head

Hungary have an 8-2 advantage against Bulgaria with two draws in 12 matches.

The most recent head to head clash took place in October 2020 and Hungary won 3-1.

Hungary Form

Hungary qualified for the last two editions of the European Championship. In 2020 they were eliminated as last in the group of death (France, Germany, Portugal), but lost only one game (D2, L1).

Marco Rossi’s side played two friendly matches in November. They were victorious against Greece (2-0) and Estonia (1-0). Hungary has been led by this Italian expert since June 2018.

The Magyars were so close to winning UEFA Nations League A/Group 3, ending as 2nd with 10 points behind Italy.

Victories against England (4-0 and 1-0) and Germany (1-0) were sensational.

This was the first defeat for Mladen Krstajić who was appointed as the Bulgarian coach in July 2022.
