The second round of group play has concluded and only three teams have secured their place in the round of 16. Most of the matches in the next round will be matches in which both teams must win to finish in the top three and await the other results. go to your advantage too. A similar situation will emerge when Hungary travels to the Allianz Arena in Munich to face Germany in an exciting match on Wednesday 23 June.

The Germans are in top form going into the game, but the results have been mixed and this game still plays a big role in their attempt to reach the knockout stage. After a fierce defeat against reigning world champions France, Germany rallied and handed a resounding 4-2 defeat to reigning European champions Portugal, despite conceding first.

Joachim Loew’s team is currently second in the Group of Death and winning this game against the lower ranked team will confirm their place in the round of 16.

Hungary are one of the fastest growing European teams that can rise to any challenge despite playing without their ranking hero Dominik Szoboszlai. He showed great strength of character in both matches, despite succumbing to the Portuguese attack in the closing minutes of the match. They resisted a draw against France in a valiant display that kept renowned French forwards limited to just one goal.

The team led by Marco Rossi has only one point and is currently last in Group F, they must win this match to keep their unlikely dream of getting through the group stage alive.

TEAM NEWS

Leon Goretzka made a cameo against Portugal, indicating that he is back in shape, while Jonas Hoffman has also returned to training. Lukas Klostermann suffered a thigh injury in training and did not enter the roster on matchday two. Joachim Loew’s first team lineup is fit and ready to battle Hungary on Wednesday.

Germany have played the same team in their two games and are likely to stay with them in the next game as well. Loew is using a 3-4-3 formation to execute the powerful German press that saw Portugal crumble.

Germany likely lineup: New; Rüdiger, Hummels, Ginter; Gosens, Kroos, Gündogan, Kimmich; Havertz, Gnabry, Muller

Hungary have missed their young and dynamic midfielder Dominik Szoboszlai, as his adductor problems still persist, forcing him off Hungary’s 26-man roster for the Euro Cup finals.

Hungary was forced to make a switch against France when captain Adam Szalai received a blow to the head causing visible discomfort. It was a precautionary measure and could still appear in the next game. There are no other injuries on Marco Rossi’s squad.

The Italian coach from Hungary has deployed his team in a 3-5-2 formation, not allowing rivals to enter his area and wait for a chance to counter attack to hurt them.

Hungary likely lineup: Gulacsi; Botka, Orban, Attila Szalai; Nego, Kleinheisler, Nagy, Schafer, Fiola, Sallai, Adam Szalai

GAME CHANGERS

Robin Gosens has been brilliant for Atalanta, scoring 38 goals since the start of the 19/20 season from the left-back position. His performances earned him a spot in Loew’s starting eleven and the 26-year-old did not disappoint.

It makes full use of the freedom of attack allowed by the German system and continues to move forward to create an attack opportunity for Germany. Gosens scored one and assisted two goals against Portugal, winning the man of the match award. His pressure and crossing will be crucial in breaking through Hungary’s tough defense in Munich.

Hungary’s number one Peter Gulacsi, between the posts, will have the responsibility of keeping his team in the tournament, as Germany will try to tease him for most of the game. His counterpart Manuel Neuer has arguably been the only best goalkeeper in the Bundesliga in recent years.

The 31-year-old Leipzig man will have more responsibility for leading the team in case Adam Szalai misses the next match. His double save against France in the first half kept the Magyars in the game and that kind of form will be needed again to keep the Germans at bay

PREDICTION

Germany are the clear favorites considering the talent and strength on their side, but they play a high line, taking the risky approach of leaving spaces behind. Hungary will try to keep their form intact and not let Germany have shooting opportunities in their area. But persistent German pressure could end up consuming the Magyars and seeing them fall through the group stage.

FootTheBall predicts a 2-0 win for Germany, confirming a top two position for them.
