On Wednesday, the Hungarian national team can start playing in Germany at the European Championships, partly held in Budapest, that if it defeats the Hungarians, it will surely reach the eighth final.

If the Hungarians succeeded, just ahead of the Germans, they would finish at least in third place in group F, and their four points would definitely be enough to advance, as the third of the three completed groups is three points in three. At the same time, the second place is available on paper, which would require the defeat of the defending Portuguese in the Puskás Arena, the world champion against the French, in addition to the Hungarian victory.

For the Germans, the clash is not without a stake either: the draw would definitely reach them an eighth final, they could be group leaders with a victory, but their situation would be vulnerable to defeat, because if the Portuguese scored a point against the French, Joachim Löw’s team would be the last.

The victory against the Portuguese was well-deserved, with which we arrived at the tournament, but the match against the Hungarians may be more difficult because they do not open so much. said the leader of the Germans leaving after the European Championships, who is not worried that his team has started with a defeat, because he thinks that a guard that flashes in the group round rarely reaches the top. “We have to continue against the Hungarian team where we stopped against the Portuguese,” he added.

From a Hungarian point of view, one of the main questions is how much the previous two matches took out from the members of the national team, in which they ran a lot, physically not only competing against better able opponents, they even surpassed them in this field. Federal captain Marco Rossi, moreover, with one exception – Nego Loic replaced Gergő Lovrencsics – sent the same starting squad against the Portuguese and the French, and probably not much change this time either.

You have to be physically fit for the Munich match

The Hungarians can have a chance to achieve a good result if the players can physically endure the third match. This is especially true in light of the fact that the Germans have two wind-fast wingerers in the person of Joshua Kimmich and Robin Gosens.

In addition, it is at least as important that the organization of the defense is as good as in the previous two matches, and in the case of attacks, quick and accurate passes and the creativity of Sallai Roland will be required in the counterattacks. Which, on the other hand, can cause difficulties, this time 50,000 Hungarian drukkers will not drive the national team, as in the Puskás Arena. This time, he has to stand up abroad so that the majority of the 14,000 spectators allowed in Munich will be German.

In both teams, the injury of an attacker can upset the coaches’ idea: in the case of the Germans, Thomas Müller’s role is questionable due to knee problems, while in the case of the Hungarians, the team captain Ádám Szalai is recovering from a concussion. In the latter case, however, all the tests have given a negative result, so it is likely to be applicable.

Expected starting teams:

Germany: Neuer – Ginter, Hummels, Rüdiger – Kimmich, Gündogan, Kroos, Gosens – Havertz, Müller – Gnabry

Hungary: Gulácsi – Botka, Orbán, Szalai A. – Nego, Kleinheisler, Nagy, Schäfer, Fiola – Szalai Á., Sallai

The match will take place on Wednesday 23 June, starting at 9pm, broadcast live by M4 Sport. The match will be led by Sergei Karasev, who also led our match against Iceland at the 2016 European Championships.
