Hungary vs Turkey Betting Tips: BTTS

Getting ready for their first test in 2024, the Hungarian national team is filled with assurance following an unblemished run through a remerkable EURO qualifying drive, notching up five triumphs and splitting points thrice, catapulting them to the summit of Group G with a commanding four-point edge over their Central European neighbors Serbia to earn a berth in this summer's finals in Germany.

Taking a panoramic view, the Nemzeti Tizenegy have steered clear of the bitterness of defeat since September 26, 2022, when they suffered a 0-2 setback against Italy in a battle for top-spot supremacy during the previous UEFA Nations League edition, crafting an unwavering streak of 12 matches without a downturn, refusing to bow to any opponent throughout the entirety of 2023 (W6, D4).

Fascinatingly, head coach Marco Rossi has reshaped the Magyars into a fearsome attacking machine that has shattered the defenses of their rivals two or more times in every, except one, of their eight qualifying contests, while being confident that their unbeatable seven-game home streak will be extended after routinely seeing off Turkey 3-1 and 2-0 in their last two H2H's in front of their home crowd.

As for the Friday's visitors to the Puskas Arena, Turkey has carved out a successful path in the European Championship qualifiers in Germany, as they amassed the highest points tally (17) among all their competitors to emerge as the ultimate victors of Groupd D, leaving behind last year's UEFA Nations League runners-up Croatia by just one point.

The most recent appearance of the Crescent-Stars in action marks the end of their three-game winning streak, which includes an outstanding 3-2 comeback victory against EURO 2024 hosts Germany, as they were forced to settle for an uninspiring 1-1 draw against Wales on the closing day of the qualifying group.

Despite the friendly nature of the match, Hakan Calhanoglu and company will aim to kick off the new calendar year in the best possible away, but it seems they'll need a new recipe for success against the stubborn Magyars, as they have failed to defeat them in the past four consecutive meetings, succumbing to defeat three times in that tricky streak.

With both national teams eager to kick off 2024 on a strong note, and considering their superb productivity in the final third, fans at the Puskas Arena can expect a high-octane affair filled with goal-scoring opportunities and thrilling moments. It's intriguing to note that the Crescent-Stars' recent friendly clashes with Japan and Germany have seen a flurry of 11 goals, while the Magyars have been equally dynamic, featuring in lively contests with goals flowing to both sides in their last six consecutive matches.

The impressive displays of 18-year-old pair Can Uzun from Nurnberg and Besiktas striker Semih Kilicsoy have caught the eye, leading Turkish coach Vincenzo Montella to include them in the national team setup.

Among the newcomers in the senior national team ranks is Ajax centre-back Ahmetcan Kaplan, adding a fresh defensive dimension to the squad, while second-choice goalkeeper Altay Bayindir and Fenerbahce defender Caglar Soyuncu remain sidelined due to injuries.
