Hungary seeking second win against San Marino

Hungary will be confident of making it two wins from three Group E matches when they host San Marino, who have never scored against their opponents in two previous matches.

Hungary will be hoping that past meetings augur well when they entertain San Marino in UEFA EURO 2012 qualifying Group E, with their visitors yet to avoid defeat – or even score a goal – against the Magyars.

Match background
• Hungary's record in two games against San Marino reads W2 D0 L0 (W1 D0 L0 at home).

• The sides were pooled together in UEFA EURO 2004 qualifying, meeting for the first time in Budapest on 16 October 2002 – eight days shy of exactly eight years before their current meeting. The minnows managed to get to half-time level at 0-0, but Zoltán Gera struck a second-half hat-trick to secure Hungary a 3-0 success.

• The goals were shared around a little more evenly in the return fixture, with two for Krisztián Lisztes and one each for Zoltán Böőr, Krisztián Kenesei and Imre Szabics in a 5-0 victory for Hungary.

• As a result, San Marino have never scored against Hungary and have only once survived 45 minutes without conceding against their upcoming opponents.
