Ranked currently 26th in the world to the Swiss's 19th, the Hungarians have grown so much that they are now at the level of beating teams such as a previously dominant Serbia 2-1 last year, and holding Turkey to a 1-0 defeat. 

Switzerland meanwhile has started consistently going to the World Cup and further developed their skills, recently beating Ireland 1-0 while drawing with a strong team in Denmark. Both teams are riding momentum after successful runs and hope to shake up the tournament's outcome.  A defensive battle is expected from start to finish in this match, where the difference could hinge on which captain can inspire a breakthrough goal late in the game.

Hungary Preview

Dominik Szoboszlai, the youngest Hungarian captain to ever lead the team to a European Cup and currently at the tournament, has revitalized the Hungarian national team after the pre-2000s issues they had. Currently a starter for Liverpool, having played 33 matches with 3 goals this season. 

His abilities will help Hungary keep the pressure off a defence that boasts a clean sheet record in the qualifiers, which includes RB Leipzig starter Willi Orban and Milos Kerkerz, who is currently playing for AFC Bournemouth of the English Premier League. 

The potent attacking duo of Martin Adam, with 2 Euro Cup Qualifying goals, and Barnabas Varga, who has notched 6 goals in 11 international matches, gives Hungary a strong attacking threat. The experience of veteran midfielder Martin Adam will give Hungary another leader to keep them focused on winning the match. 

Switzerland Preview

Switzerland will be led by Granit Xhaka, whose 32 starts were instrumental in Bayern Leverkusen's surprising first-place finish. This dual-threat midfielder can play a vital role on both ends of the field. His experience, including a U17 World Cup victory for Switzerland, 3 World Cup appearances, and 2 Euros played, provides the team with a much-needed veteran presence for success. 

Xhaka and Xherdan Shaqiri, boasting 31 goals in 123 international caps, form a formidable duo that can lead from the front. This opens up opportunities for youngster Breel Embolo, who shone with 12 goals for Monaco in 2022-23. 

Zeki Amdouni, with 5 goals for Burnley this year, could be a breakout player for this team throughout the tournament. With a talented offense and the continued brilliance of goalkeeper Yann Sommer, this Swiss team is a force to be reckoned with. 

Both Hungary and Switzerland are seen as rising stars in European football, and their focus will likely be on prioritizing a strong defense to limit opportunities for the opposition. Hungary's captain Dominik Szoboszlai and Switzerland's Granit Xhaka, both seasoned veterans who have led their clubs in high-pressure matches, are more than prepared for this tactical chess match. 

While both offenses have the potential to light up the scoreboard, finding the back of the net could prove to be the biggest challenge for both teams, given their aggressive playing styles and the importance of this opening match.
