Germany vs Hungary: Euros preview

G

ermany look odds-on to reach the last-16 of Euro 2020 as they round off their Group F journey against Hungary.

Die Nationalmannschaft kicked off the group with a 1-0 defeat to France, and looked in real trouble after going behind to Portugal – but Joachim Low’s team rallied brilliantly to win 4-2.

With Hungary and France also drawing last time out, Didier Deschamps’ world champions face Portugal in their final group game – and that offers Germany a great chance to progress with a result against Hungary.

However, Hungary are still in with a chance of qualifying for the knockout stages, and could go through with a win if results and goal difference go their way.

Date, kick-off time and venue

Germany vs Hungary is scheduled for an 8pm BST kick-off on Wednesday, June 23, 2021.

The match will be held at the Allianz Arena in Munich, Germany.
