Hungary take on Iceland in a Euro 2020 Qualifying Play-Off on Thursday. Iceland must get over their poor Nations League form to qualify.

Hungary Form


Hungary will be buoyed by their recent form coming into this game. They are unbeaten in their last three matches.

The unbeaten run started with a 3-1 win away to Bulgaria before a 1-0 win at Serbia in the Nations League.

That was then followed up by a 0-0 draw away to Russia in the same competition. Despite this, their home form is poor.

Hungary have lost three of their last four home matches heading into this crucial game.

Iceland Form


Iceland have really struggled of late, though it should be noted that they have faced the upper echelon of international competition in the Nations League.

Iceland have lost all four of their Nations League fixtures with defeats coming against England, Belgium and Denmark.

The most recent of those wins came against Romania in a European Championship Qualifier. They won 2-1 thanks to a brace from Gylfi Sigurdsson.
