The 2020-21 edition of the UEFA Nations League returns with another set of League B fixtures this weekend as Serbia take on Hungary in an important game on Sunday. Both teams have endured mixed starts to their campaigns and will want to return to winning ways in this game.
Hungary have managed one victory in the UEFA Nations League so far and are currently only behind Russia in Group 3. The Hungarians managed an excellent 3-1 victory against Bulgaria this week and will be confident going into this game.
Serbia, on the other hand, have been underwhelming at best in the UEFA Nations League and will need to get their campaign back on track against Hungary. The Serbians picked up a 2-1 victory against a formidable Norway side earlier this week and can trouble Hungary in this game.

Serbia will be a resurgent side after their victory against Norway and will want to prove a point this weekend. The Serbians have a host of attacking players and will look to take the game to their Hungarian opponents.
