Crisis? What crisis? Germany sprang to life in style in their second Group F fixture at Euro 2020, catapulting themselves back into contention in the process. Now, Die Mannschaft must finish the job to secure their qualification for the knockout rounds against a plucky Hungary side.
Where and when: Allianz Arena – 23 June, kick-off 20:00
Where you can see Germany vs. Hungary: BBC
Last time: Germany beat Hungary 2-0 in a friendly just before Euro 2016, with Thomas Muller on target for Die Mannschaft at the Veltins-Arena in Gelsenkirchen.
Germany v Hungary Predictions and Preview
Hungary have put up a great fight in Euro 2020’s group of death, but surely beating Germany to reach the last 16 is a step too far for the Magyars. Die Mannschaft shook off their troubles in their second group game, and they are the heavy favourites to back it back-to-back victories here.
The Germans will have home advantage for their third straight group fixture at the Allianz Arena in Munich. Hungary enjoyed the same in their first two matches, but they have to travel approximately 400 miles for this final fixture.
That won’t help the Hungarians’ cause in the slightest. The Magyars managed to frustrate defending champions Portugal for more than 80 minutes in their opening match, before a late flurry saw the Selecao run out 3-0 winners.
Marco Rossi’s side went one better in their second game against France, holding the world champions to a 1-1 draw. The Hungary coach was in bullish mood ahead of this match, but his team are the 35/2 underdogs in the betting.

Germany to win to nil
Germany to win 4-0
Gnabry to score first
Die Mannschaft are 2/9 in these Germany v Hungary predictions, a price which reflects both their superior quality and resurgent form. The Germans were awful in losing 1-0 to France in their opener, before bouncing back in stunning style second time round.
Not many teams put four goals past this Portugal side, but Die Mannschaft were excellent against the Selecao despite going a goal down on Saturday. Joachim Low’s side were full value for their 4-2 victory, thrusting themselves back into the conversation for the eventual tournament winners.
All four of the teams in Group F can qualify on Wednesday, although Hungary need to win to go through. A draw should be enough for the Germans, with that outcome priced at 6/1 with William Hill in the latest odds for this game.
One to watch for Germany: Serge Gnabry was excellent against Portugal, although the Bayern Munich forward was unable to get his name on the scoresheet. He has 16 goals in 24 international appearances though, and is 10/3 in first scorer market here.
One to watch for Hungary: Adam Szalai is a doubt after a blow to the head forced the Hungary captain off the pitch against France early in the game. The Magyars need their main source of goals though, with Szalai 5/1 in the anytime scorer market if he’s passed fit to play.
Long shot: Germany have scored 10 goals across their last three victories over Hungary. Die Mannschaft netted four against Portugal and could easily do the same in this final group fixture. Low’s side are 10/1 to win 4-0 in these German v Hungary tips, rising to 51/1 with Gnabry scoring first.
