It was first blood to Hungary in the UEFA Euro 2016 play-offs as an early goal from Laszlo Kleinheisler gave them a 1-0 win in Norway.
That really puts them in the driving seat now for the second leg on Sunday, which will decide who the first of the four play-off victors are heading to next summer’s Finals in France.
But is there life left in this tie?
Given the way that Norway dominated the first leg and did everything so well apart from sticking the ball in the back of the net, then there could be plenty of life left indeed.
The Norwegians have won their last two visits to Hungary, pretty convincingly add that too, and Ladbrokes have the Norwegians a tempting 11/5 price to qualify for the finals.
Ireland banked a solid 1-1 draw in Zenica against Bosnia on Friday and now can look to the second leg on the 16th back in Dublin with huge optimism. There’s some intense international action to come across the next few days.
Bookmaker Ladbrokes have extended their money back special on fivefold or bigger access to the Euro 2016 qualifiers.
Just place a fivefold or bigger acca with them and if your wager loses because of just one leg then you’ll be covered with insurance back up to the value of £25. Selections from all the English and Scottish domestic action also qualifies for the Ladbrokes money back acca special.
