Serbia vs Hungary odds
*Odds correct as of 09:00 on September 7
With an odd number of teams, Group G sees one nation miss out every matchweek, which means not everyone has played the same amount of games. However, that hasn’t stopped Hungary and Serbia from sitting in the top two. Hungary are currently top of the group with seven points from their opening three games, three points clear of third-placed Montenegro and still unbeaten. After sitting out the first gameweek, Hungary opened their qualifying campaign with a 3-0 win over Bulgaria before drawing against Montenegro. But they bounced back from the stalemate with a 2-0 victory against Lithuania, which has them ahead of Serbia.
Second-placed Serbia have also won seven points from their first three games and are only behind Hungary on goal difference, but head-to-head will be the first tiebreak come the end of the group. So it’s all to play for here. Serbia started their qualifying campaign with back-to-back 2-0 wins, beating Lithuania and Montenegro, before sitting out the third gameweek. Their return in June wasn’t ideal as they needed Darko Lazovic’s 96th-minute equaliser to rescue a point against Bulgaria, which allowed Hungary to leapfrog them.

Serbia vs Hungary match tip

Serbia vs Hungary Bet-Builder tip
Just one player in Group G has scored more than one goal in qualifying and that’s Serbia’s talisman Dusan Vlahovic. The Juventus forward scored in both of Serbia’s opening games, including a brace against Montenegro, while he has two goals in three games for his club this season. It may be a small sample size, but Hungary may be wary of the fact that their only dropped points in Euro 2024 qualifying came away from home. At the same time, Serbia won their one home match.
