After the start of the Bundesliga this weekend, more and more European football leagues will continue this month. Hungary is one of these countries where fans can finally watch live football again next weekend. In our Hungarian football cup betting odds, we show the teams reaching the semi-finals of the Hungarian Cup and the favorites to win.
Teams from the first and second tier of the Hungarian football system have joined the tournament of the Hungarian Football Cup last September, in the 6th round. Since then they played five more rounds to reach the semi-finals, which they were supposed to play in April. After the suspension of the sport, finally, the four remaining teams can play in the semi-final next weekend. The games will be played behind closed doors but with live coverage on the national football channel. Last season’s winner, MOL Fehervar are still in the competition and has a good chance to defend its title.
In the Hungarian Football Cup betting, odds can’t decide on clear favorites
In the first semi-final, the team of Mezokovesd-Zsory will host MOL Fehervar, which seems to be a tough game. Mezokovesd are doing great this season, they are currently in 3rd place in the championship 8 points behind leader Ferencvaros. In the cup, they were very confident, though they had relatively easy opponents from lower leagues until the quarter-finals. There they met first league team Puskas Akademia, who were a much more difficult team to play against. Mezokovesd won the duel 2-1 on aggregate.
Their rival will be the defending cup holder, MOL Fehervar, who is in 2nd place in the championship, 5 points ahead of Mezokovesd. The guests are the favorites to win their first game by online sportsbooks in Hungary with the odds of 2.15 at Bet365 Sportsbook. Fehervar had a harder way so far after meeting first league teams Ujpest and Zalaegerszeg. But they took all the hurdles so far. As the team is still fighting for the championship title, they might concentrate less on this game. They can settle for a draw before the second leg at home which has the odds of 3.40. While a home win has the odds of 3.25 on bet365.
MTK Budapest vs Budapest Honved in the other semi-final
Two of the oldest Hungarian clubs will meet in the other semi-final. Though MTK was playing this season in the second division, they were already announced as the winner of it after the cancellation of further games there. It also means that they will play again in the top division next season, which is expected from a club with 23 championships and 12 cup titles. In their game against Budapest Honved, they are not the favorites though. Online gambling sites in Hungary are giving the odds of only 3.20 for their win.
In the Hungarian Football Cup betting odds, Budapest Honved is predicted to win the game with the odds of 2.30 at Bet365 Sportsbook. They are in 6th place in the championship, 11 points behind third-place Mezokovesd. A podium finish means the right to play in the UEFA Europa League qualifiers, but the winner of the Cup also gets this chance. So surely Honved will try everything to win this tournament and have the chance to play international football next season.
