Euro Predictions 2024 | Germany vs Hungary

Match Prediction: Germany vs Hungary UEFA European Championship 2024

The hosts take on Hungary in their second group-stage match of the Euros. The tiny nation is not a team to be underestimated, with their performance in the qualifiers surprising many. They finished first in Group G ahead of Serbia and did not lose a single game in the qualifiers, which has encouraged their fans for this tournament. The Germans will be well aware of Hungary’s ability and won’t take their preparations lightly for this game.




How did they qualify?

Germany automatically qualified for the Euros since they are the hosts and did not have to play any qualifiers. Instead, Germany played a series of friendlies with mixed results.

It was a different story for Hungary, as they had to fight hard to make it to the tournament. This will be the third time they have qualified for this tournament in a row, but before that, they missed out on the tournament for 44 years. Unfortunately, Hungary was drawn in the tournament group of death last time but will quietly fancy their chances this time.

Team Analysis

The German national team has been praised for having no fear of backing their youth talent to join up with more established players throughout the years. This synergy between these young stars helps them break out onto the scene, and we are seeing that with players like Jamal Musiala and Florian Wirtz. Players like Toni Kross and Thomas Muller will be there to support their team, but it is unlikely that we will see them play a major role as they did previously for their team.

The Hungarian football team might not be the favourites, but considering how they play, we have high expectations from them. Going into the Euros they were 14 matches unbeaten, and in their run, they have defeated some big names like Serbia and Turkey. Hungary has a strong fan base that will be there to support their team through thick and thin regardless of who they are up against.

Players to watch

The Germans have been underwhelming in recent years, but they still possess some top talent. If these two below have a great tournament, they could go far.

- Manuel Neuer: This veteran goalkeeper returned from a long-term injury late in the season with Bayern. He is an outstanding goalkeeper who has become a benchmark for goalkeeping standards

- Jamal Musiala: In our opinion, this is Germany's most important football player. He has all the tricks in the book and can make a goal from nothing. He needs to play well for the Germans to be at their best

The Hungarian football team is less balanced than the German team when it comes to overall strength. They aren't a team full of superstars, but they do have one standout player

- Dominik Szoboszlai: After securing a £60 million pound to Liverpool at the start of the season, it's fair to say he has impressed in his first season in the Premier League Many consider him the face of the Hungarian national team


It won’t be surprising to see an engaging game when these two teams face off, but Germany will likely lead the charge. Hungary will likely be on the defensive, aiming to counter-attack whenever possible. Germany, on the other hand, is more than capable of breaking through with their fast-paced, high-pressing style of play. This could secure a win for them and establish a dominant position in their group.
