Hungary and Cyprus will trade tackles at the Ferenc Szusza Stadium on Friday in an international friendly.

The home side will use this as one of two exhibition games before they start their Euro 2020 sojourn. Hungary have been grouped in Group F of the tournament, alongside France, Germany and Portugal in the proverbial 'group of death'.

Cyprus did not secure qualification to the European Championship and will instead be gearing up for the resumption of the FIFA World Cup qualifiers in September.

Hungary were 4-1 victors away to Andorra in their last international fixture in March. Four different men got on the scoresheet to help the Magyars to a convincing victory.

Cyprus were 1-0 winners against Slovenia on home turf. Ionnis Pittas scored the game-winning goal in the 42nd minute.

Hungary vs Cyprus Head-to-Head

The two sides have met on seven previous occasions and Hungary have a much better record with six victories.

Cyprus have one victory to their name, while the two sides are yet to play out a stalemate.

Their most recent meeting came in an exhibition game in February 2007. Goals in each half from Yiasoumi Yiasoumis and Yiannakis Okkas gave Cyprus a 2-1 victory on home turf.

Hungary are currently on a fine run of form that has seen them go nine games without defeat, with six games in that sequence ending in a victory. Cyprus have two wins in their last five matches.
