After a thriller in Budapest, can Hungary get their first three points of the campaign on the board?
On Thursday, they took on qualification rivals Poland at the Puskás Aréna and the match finished 3-3.
Goals from Roland Sallai and Ádám Szalai put the hosts 2-0 up before Willi Orbán had them 3-2 in front but the match finished all square.
Hungary haven’t qualified for a World Cup since 1986 but have made it to Euro 2016 and Euro 2020.
Last November, Marco Rossi’s side beat Iceland in a dramatic play-off final to qualify for this summer’s tournament.
In Group I, it’s expected that England will win this group and qualify automatically, leaving Hungary and Poland to fight for second spot and a play-off place.
The Hungarians are the underdogs to do so thus, can’t afford to drop points against minnows.
Given San Marino’s record, that’s unlikely to happen.
They were beaten 5-0 by England at Wembley on Thursday so have now conceded 674 goals in 153 competitive matches.
San Marino are yet to win a competitive game but did hold both Liechtenstein and Gibraltar to goalless draws in the Nations League in 2020.
Nevertheless, Franco Varrella’s side are just trying to keep the score down in this one.
How many will Hungary score at Stadio Olimpico di Serravalle?
Prediction: San Marino 0-6 Hungary
Unsurprisingly, Hungary have won all four meetings with San Marino, scoring 19 and conceding zero.

Not only that, but you can also watch in-game clips and free match highlights on Sky Sports’ digital platforms via our dedicated live blog, so there is plenty to look forward to, including these fixtures:
Spain look to bounce back from one of the surprise results of the first round of fixtures when they head to Tbilisi in search of their maiden victory. Despite dominating Greece for the entirety of their game in Granada, the 2010 world champions were repelled by the stubborn visitors, who claimed a crucial point when captain Anastasios Bakasetas converted from the penalty spot to cancel out Alvaro Morata’s opener.
Anything less than a Spain victory would leave the door open to Zlatan Ibrahimovic-inspired Sweden to take control of the group, who look to follow up their victory over Georgia win another away to Kosovo. With Northern Ireland in international friendly duty on Sunday, early pacesetters Italy and Switzerland have the chance to both move six points clear of the chasing pack with two games played.
Italy proved too strong for a stubborn Northern Ireland on Matchday 1, while three goals in the opening 12 minutes saw Switzerland cruise to a 3-1 win in Bulgaria.
Northern Ireland’s second-half performance in Parma was a welcome sign of how this side can play under Ian Baraclough, but those positive signs need to be turned into points. Problem is, they could already be playing catch up if Italy and Switzerland get the job done.
Things started so well for France when Antoine Griezmann curled them into the lead against Ukraine in Paris, but a second-half own goal from Presnel Kimpembe saw the reigning world champions’ defence begin with a frustrating draw.
But with Kazakhstan winless in their previous six internationals, France’s next assignment is one they should pass with relative ease, despite the long, arduous trip to the Astana Arena.
Elsewhere, Teemu Pukki will look to inspire Finland to their first victory and closer to a maiden World Cup finals appearance when they head to Ukraine later on Sunday.After opening their World Cup qualifying campaign with a 2-2 home draw against Austria on Thursday, Scotland travel to familiar foes Israel on Sunday.
Scotland are facing Israel for the fourth time this season and the sixth time in two-and-a-half years. They have lost both away games, the second one a 1-0 defeat in November with current manager Steve Clarke at the helm.
Going into Wednesday’s meeting with the Faroe Islands – who travel to Austria on Sunday – unbeaten is a minimum requirement for Scotland, as is keeping in touch with Denmark, who are expected to register their second qualifying win when they host Moldova.
