After Germany secured a neat win over Portugal and Hungary held France to a famous draw, both nations now meet in their final group game as they bid to qualify from the ‘Group of Death’
European Championship 2020
Venue: Allianz Arena
Germany bounced back from their 1-0 defeat to France with a very convincing, match of the competition contender, a classic six-goal thriller win over defending champions Portugal.
Die Mannschaft looked a far different side offensively than the side that faced France just a few days before and thus, in what has been the most open pool of the tournament, it definitely has lived up to its name as the group of death.
Germany could finish in any of the four positions in the group depending on the result of the France vs Portugal match but avoiding defeat here will put Joachim Löw’s men into the next round.
Hungary last time out, kept France at bay for most of the first half and then managed to steal a one goal lead heading into halftime.
Unfortunately they failed to keep the lead but that one point they gained could prove very vital. Hungary have shown they can defend as a team for large spells of a match but they can also prone to shutting down at any time.
Yet, they can’t afford to shut down for even a second against Germany or else they’ll be punished badly. The one point gained means a win takes them to the next round of the Euros and after holding Portugal for 80 minutes & holding France to a draw, who’s to say the Magyars can’t snatch a famous win over the Germans?
Lukas Klostermann & Thomas Müller are both confirmed to miss the game whilst Jonas Hofmann is a doubt.
Daniel Gazdag is out of this fixture with a knee injury.
Germany’s last five games: LDWLW
Hungary’s last five games: WWDLD
In their last 10 home games, Germany have averaged more than 2.5 goals
Hungary have lost just once in their last 13 games.
Germany will be full of confidence after that performance against Portugal but so will the Hungarians after their own performance against France. Germany will not want to underestimate their opponents because doing so could be disastrous as France almost experienced.
Germany’s defence has been very suspect in recent times and the Hungarians could fancy their chances against that back line. There should be a couple of goals in this one but ultimately Germany should prove too strong for the Hungarians. Bet Germany to win and both teams to score at 31/20 odds.
