Portugal face on Hungary in their final group stage match on Wednesday. Despite playing superbly in the first two match, luck were against the Fernando Santos side. They drew their first match 1-1 against Iceland while Cristiano Ronaldo once again was in spotlight as he missed a penalty and wasted number of free kicks in second match against Austria. If Portugal has to escape from group stage, they must win against Hungary.
On the other side, Hungary has been superb so far in this tournament, they won 2-0 against Austria in the opening match while managed to hold Iceland in a stalemate in second match. With 4 points they are in very much control of the group and a point or a win in this match will guarantee them to stay at the top of the table.
