Germany is hosting Hungary at Allianz Arena in round 3 of Group F in the Euro Cup 2021. Germany is coming off of an impressive win against Portugal, and with a win here they are advancing to the next stage. Hungary has surprised against France, but in order to advance to the next stage, Hungary needs an even bigger surprise in this match.
After a solid game and a loss against France in round 1, Germany needed to step up their game, and boy they have done it magnificently. Germany was hosting Portugal in round 2, and they were the better team with 57% of ball possession, 7 shots on goal, 3 corner kicks, 3 big chances created, and a high 90% of the correct passes. Portugal got ahead in the 15th minute after a perfect counterattack, but with two own goals from Portugal, Germany was leading 1-2. Germany has scored 2 more goals in the second half, and they have won this game 2-4. Havertz and Gosens have each scored 1 goal for Germany so far, while Kimmich and Gosens added 1 assist each. The biggest problem for Germany right now is they will be without Muller in this game, while Gundogan and Hummels are still questionable. As I’ve mentioned earlier, Germany is advancing to the next stage with a win, and judging by their last performance, they are very close to that.
Hungary was hosting their first two games in this group, and they were somewhat successful. Hungary has lost to Portugal in round 1, but with a draw against France in round 2, Hungary is still in play to advance to the next stage. Hungary has had only 34% of ball possession in this game, 3 shots on goal, 1 corner kick, 1 big chance created, and 81% of the correct passes. After scoring a goal at the end of the first half, Hungary was ahead and carried by 60,000 Hungarian fans, they were defending well, until the 66th minute when France scored an equalizer. After that, Hungary was still focused, and this game has ended in a 1-1 draw. Fiola has scored 1 goal, while Sallai has added an assist. Gazdag is injured for Hungary, while Szalai is still questionable. If Hungary was playing this game at home, I would consider them to win this game, but since it’s being played in Munich, I’m not so sure. Hungary has had some solid performances in this tournament, and they will need the best one yet in this game.
Hungary hasn’t lost any of their last 6 games on the road, but this is Germany we are talking about. Germany will be carried by their win against Portugal, and they know they need a win here, and I think they will get it. Germany is the better team here, and I think they will score early here to get rid of pressure.
