Hungary are unbeaten in their last 12 games across competitions, having won seven of them. They beat Montenegro 3-1 in their last game and have put in solid performances recently.

Turkiye, meanwhile, are unbeaten in their last four games and played out a 1-1 draw at Wales last time out after beating Germany 3-2. Turkey have performed brilliantly against some of the big teams in recent times but they have some key players missing.

Hence, it should be a tight affair with both teams also likely to test things about before the Euros this summer.

Predicted Score: Hungary 1-1 Turkiye
