Hungary v England Bet Builder Betting Tip:
England to win
England have a historical hold over Hungary.
13 unbeaten, winning 11 dating back to the World Cup in 1962, Southgate should be confident of extending this record.
This England tend to fair well against weaker opposition with little drama – a canter inside the Puskás Aréna is expected.
Under 2.5 goals
England have become very industrious and professional over qualifying campaigns.
They don’t concede many, but rarely blow a side out of the water.
Seven of England’s last eight wins inside 90 minutes have come with the Three Lions scoring two or fewer.
Over 4.5 England corners
We expect England to dominate large patches of this contest, especially in possession.
With the hosts locked into a rigid defensive shape, corners should flow for Southgate’s side.
Raheem Sterling to score
Sterling shone over England’s positive summer, scoring three important goals in the group stages and Last 16.
The Manchester City forward is under pressure for position for his club side and will be eager to underline his qualities on the world stage.
Gareth Southgate trusts him and should allow him the room to impress.
