Luxembourg will host Hungary in an international friendly at Stade de Luxembourg on Thursday night. Both nations have not qualified for the finals of the upcoming World Cup in Qatar, as they managed to secure only a fourth-place finish in their respective groups during UEFA qualifiers. The hosts collected 9 points from eight World Cup qualification games, eight points adrift of second-placed Portugal in Group A, while Hungary pocketed 17 points from 10 matches, just three adrift of second place Poland in Group I. The two nations were involved in Nations League fixtures in September, with Luxembourg securing a narrow 1-0 win over Lithuania, while the visitors suffered a 2-0 defeat to Italy. 

Hungary are heading into the match on the back of some impressive results in their Nations League matches. Prior to the defeat to Italy, the Magyars recorded back-to-back wins against England and Germany. Marco Rossi’s side put four goals past England courtesy of a brace from Roland Sallai and one goal each from Zsolt Nagy and Daniel Gazdag. After that, the National Eleven edged past Germany through Adam Szalai’s lone goal inside the opening 17 minutes. Despite the impressive results, Hungary narrowly missed out on semi-final spot as they pocketed 10 points from 6 games, just one behind first-placed Italy in League A Group 3. 

Luxembourg, on the other hand, recorded three wins and two draws from six Nations League games to pocket 11 points, just two behind first-placed Turkey in League C Group 1. The difference between top spot and runner-ups in the group was a 2-0 loss to the latter. In the reverse fixture in September, the Red Lions produced a brilliant performance to secure a 3-3 draw away from home. After that, Luc Holtz’s side got the better of Lithuania courtesy of Gerson Rodrigues’ lone goal, two minutes from time, in their final group-match.
