The Hungarian league, mostly known as the Nemzeti Bajnokság, has been a brilliant market for punters with eyes on Europe’s lower leagues.
12 teams compete for the league title and are required to play each other three times: at home, away, and in a neutral stadium. The winner goes on to the qualification rounds of the UEFA Champions League, while the second and third-place teams progress to the Europa Conference League rounds.
Ferencváros have won the last five championships. Indeed, they are poised to retain the title. Of course, it is still early days. But to be fair, the leaders are somewhat in a class of their own, able to juggle domestic and continental competitions.
The Nemzeti Bajnokság has averaged three goals per match this season. Hence, the goals market is a must-look for every punter. Even then, after 13 matches played, some enticing patterns have emerged that could ascertain greater rewards for their stakes.
Ferencváros To Score Over 1.5 Goals At Home
It goes without saying that for all the success that Ferencváros have achieved in the Nemzeti Bajnoksag, competing favourably on the continent is clearly among their priorities.
In truth, they came close to qualifying for the group stages of the UCL. The Green Eagles lost to Qarabag in the third round, 4-2 on aggregate. However, since their demotion to the Europa League, they have been outstanding.
Stanislav Cherchesov’s men lead Group H and have qualified for the knockout phase, needing just a point to avoid the playoffs.
The Hungarian champions sit atop the league, albeit with two games in hand. They have lost twice, both matches coming the weekend after a continental encounter.
They have won every game at the Groupama Arena in the league this season. The defending champions have scored at least two goals in five of their last six home matches. Adama Traoré is the team’s top scorer with 14 goals in all competitions, including seven in the Nemzeti Bajnoksag.
Certainly, as Ferencváros look to win a sixth consecutive title, scoring over 1.5 goals at home seems likely this season.
Over 1.5 Goals In Matches Involving Zalaegerszegi TE
After finishing in eighth place last season, ZTE appointed former Ferencváros manager Ricardo Moniz.
Zete currently sit in fifth place, which by their standards seems like a step in the right direction. Last term, they managed just 10 wins in 33 matches. However, this season, they have already won four of 13.
A simple analysis of ZTE’s defence last season showed just how horrible they were. They had the second-worst defensive record, behind Paksi. And now, from an average concession of 1.7 goals in the last campaign, it stands at 1.5 this season.
András Huszti and Attila Mocsi have not been impeccable at the back. Yet they have made considerable improvements under the new manager. Offensively, they have relied on Eduvie Ikoba, who has scored eight goals.
Moniz’s men have recorded 11 over 1.5 results this season. This is a must-have option for every punter with eyes on the Hungarian Nemzeti Bajnokság.
Goal/goal In Matches Involving Debrecen
Debrecen are having the most unique yet unfortunate season so far. They have managed just three wins so far this season. Five draws have been sandwiched in between.
The fascinating thing about this team is its ability to score and concede in equal measure. When they pour forward, they commit as many players. Then, they become ultimately vulnerable in defence.
Despite having the worst defence in the division, Srdja Blagojevic’s men have outscored all but two sides. Only twice in 13 matches have they failed to score.
In the same vein, they have kept just two clean sheets. Oleksandr Romanchuk and Sana Gomes have struggled to coordinate their rear line.
Loki have recorded 10 goal/goal results this season, including their last three. This betting option looks sure to deliver massive returns for punters with stakes in the Hungarian market.
Under 3.5 Goals In Matches Involving Vasas
To win matches, you simply have to score more than you concede. This is probably the simplest of football’s principles.
Vasas are languishing at the bottom of the Nemzeti Bajnokság. And yet, only the top two sides have conceded more goals than this team. Of course, there is no prize for guessing; they have scored the fewest goals in the division.
Elemer Kondas, who favours a 3-5-2 formation with three centre-backs, has figured out a way to make his side remain impenetrable. However, this has come at the expense of scoring. Vasas are averaging less than one goal per match.
For how poor they have been this season, taking their standings into consideration, Vasas have kept four clean sheets this season.
Kondas’ men have recorded 12 under 3.5 goals matches out of 13 this term. This is a low-risk option with plenty of rewards.
