Germany seeks to secure a knockout stage berth against Hungary. Riding high after a dominant 5-1 win over Scotland in their opener at the Allianz Arena, Germany needs just a win to guarantee a spot in the round of 16, while a draw would likely suffice as well. Even a late call-up, Emre Can, found the net for the Germans, boosting fan confidence ahead of the second group match.

Hungary, considered a potential dark horse, faces an uphill battle after a disappointing 3-1 defeat to Switzerland. Despite boasting key players like Willi Orbán and Dominik Szoboszlai, the Hungarians struggled for rhythm and were outplayed by the Swiss. The loss puts them under immense pressure against a strong German side.

Germany enters the match as the clear favorite with their superior form. Hungary will need a significant improvement to avoid an early exit, while German fans anticipate another convincing performance and a comfortable victory. 

Germany Preview

Germany heads into their crucial clash against Hungary brimming with confidence after a dominant display in their Euro 2024 opener. The 5-1 victory at the iconic Allianz Arena showcased their attacking prowess and sent a strong message to the rest of the competition. 

The young attacking trio of Florian Wirtz, Jamal Musiala, and Kai Havertz stole the show, each finding the net against Scotland. Wirtz, the 21-year-old Bayer Leverkusen playmaker, dazzled with his creativity and dribbling, while Musiala, the highly-rated 19-year-old Bayern Munich midfielder, showcased his finishing ability. 

Havertz, the experienced Arsenal attacker, provided a focal point up front, linking play and adding another dimension to the German attack. The surprise inclusion of Emre Can also proved fruitful. The late call-up, brought in due to Aleksandar Pavlovic's illness, slotted seamlessly into the midfield and even got himself on the scoresheet. 

This unexpected contribution further boosted the team's morale and highlighted the depth within the German squad. With their attacking weapons firing on all cylinders and a newfound confidence coursing through the team, Germany appears unstoppable as they face Hungary in a match that could secure their place in the knockout stages. 

Germany Probable Starting XI: Manuel Neuer (Goalkeeper); Antonio Ruediger, Maximilian Mittelstaedt, Jonathan Tah, Joshua Kimmich, Kai Havertz, Toni Kroos (Defenders); Jamal Musiala, Florian Wirtz, , Ilkay Gundogan (Mid Fielders); Robert Andrich (Forward)

Hungary Preview

Their opening match against Switzerland ended in a disheartening 3-1 defeat, casting a shadow over their dark horse status. Key players like the creative midfielder Dominik Szoboszlai and the dependable defender Willi Orbán will need to rise to the occasion against a far more formidable opponent.

Manager Marco Rossi faces a critical challenge. The first game highlighted Hungary's struggles to establish a rhythm, both offensively and defensively.  Rossi will need to make tactical adjustments to exploit any weaknesses in the German side.  Additionally, he must inspire a strong reaction from his players, igniting their fighting spirit and reminding them of the attacking threat they possess. 

Hungary must find a way to disrupt Germany's usually dominant game and capitalize on any opportunities that arise.  Their performance against Switzerland fell short of expectations, and a significant improvement across the pitch is crucial if they are to avoid an early exit from the tournament. 

Hungary Probable Starting XI: Peter Gulacsi (Goalkeeper); Adam Lang, Willi Orban, Attila Szalai (Defenders); Milos Kerkez, Andras Schafer, Adam Nagy, Attila Fiola, Roland Sallai, Do inik Szoboszlai (Mid Fielders); Barnabas Varga (Forward)

With the advantage of being the hosts and after a crushing victory against Scotland, Julian Nagelsmann's team will enter the match as clear favorites. Despite Germany's superior organization, the Hungarians prevailed four-nil in the June 2022 Nations League doubleheader. 

Anything less than a German victory would be shocking, however, considering their current form and the home crowd advantage. Hungary has pressure to repeat their previous achievements, but Germany's impressive performance against Scotland indicates: they are ready to win handily and move on to the Euro 2024 round of 16 with a 2-0 score.
