Germany vs Hungary Prediction And Odds

Germany welcome Hungary to Munich on Wednesday for their penultimate Group F match in Euro 2020.

The Germans - who have won their last two matches against the Hungarians - will take on Marco Rossi's fearless side at Bayern Munich's Allianz Arena - and goals should be on the menu, too.

After a narrow defeat to world champions France in their opening game, Joachim Low's well-drilled side have started to move through the gears in Group F - dubbed by many as the 'Group of Death'.

Last time out, the Germans were imperious and recorded an impressive 4-2 victory over Cristiano Ronaldo's Portugal - proving doubters that they can still perform on the big stage.

Meanwhile, Hungary - who plenty tipped to finish goalless and pointless - have defied expectations backed by a noisy crowd at the Puskas Arena in Budapest.

Portugal left it late before breaking them down in the opener and Hungary even took a shock lead against France before having to settle for a point.

That 1-1 draw has kept their hopes alive and a win over Die Mannschaft would now take them into the knockout stages against all the odds.

However, they won't have the advantage of a home crowd, especially with this game held in the heart of Germany - and that could have a big impact on how things play out.

With the group stages now reaching its conclusion, our tipster Robert Mann takes a look at some of the best bets from Germany vs Hungary to get your teeth stuck into.

The Germans, however, responded in style by beating Portugal in a 4-2 thriller in their next game, thus, showing that they are capable of beating anyone on their day.

A point would be enough to take the Germans into the last-16, but Low will want his side to claim another convincing victory and build momentum going into the knockouts.

With that said, we're backing Germany to win this game convincingly - especially considering how they effortlessly put four past a star-studded Portugal side.

First Goalscorer: Kai Havertz (11/2)

Kai Havertz, a Champions League winner with Chelsea last season, is making a habit of scoring in big games - and he was on the scoresheet in Germany's entertaining 4-2 win against the Portuguese on Saturday.

He also became Germany's youngest ever scorer at a European Championship - and that will, surely, spur him on to get on the scoresheet yet again.

It was the German international's fourth goal in his last 16 caps - and we reckon he'll get his fifth, at least, in tonight's game.

Player Assists: Leon Goretzka to assist 1+ goals (3/1)

With Thomas Muller struggling with injury, Joachim Low might be forced to rely on his squad depth sooner rather than later.

After 17 minutes against Portugal, Leon Goretzka has become a solid option for Low, who may well finally be confronted by all of his midfield options being available.

The midfielder, who struggled with injury at the end of the season, finished the campaign with nine assists in Bundesliga and Champions League games.

Regardless of where he is on the pitch, the 26-year-old has shown his creativity and ability to gain assists when playing for Bayern - and we're backing him to do the same in a Germany strip.

Germany team news

Joachim Low now has a squad high on belief, but two of his recently returned veterans are struggling to be fit for Wednesday's make-or-break game.

Thomas Muller is set to miss tonight's match with a knee injury - meaning that the Bayern Munich star could be out of action until the quarter-finals, should Germany get that far, of course.

Mats Hummels his former Bayern colleague also has a knee issue, but could still start - though Niklas Sule is poised to deputise if need be.

Meanwhile, another Munich player in Leroy Sane is favourite to take Muller's place in attack.

Hungary team news

After receiving a blow to the head, experienced striker Adam Szalai had to be substituted midway through the first half against France.

It leaves Nemanja Nikolic - who replaced him in Budapest - expected to fill in, with goalkeeper Peter Gulacsi taking the captain's armband.

Elsewhere, midfielder Daniel Gazdag was withdrawn from the squad for the remainder of the tournament after suffering an injury last week.

Other than that, though, the visiting side otherwise have a fully fit group from which to choose.
