EURO 2020 Matchday 2!

Hungary are set to welcome France in their second game of the Euros on Saturday, June 19, at the Ferenc Puskas Arena, Budapest.

France picked up a crucial win over Germany in their first game, while Hungary suffered a 3-0 defeat to Portugal.

Hungary won three out of their last six matches, while the reigning World Cup champions haven’t lost any of their last six games and just had a draw.

Here is the view from the camps.

While Denes Dibusz, Hungary goalkeeper added: “We can’t wait to see what game France are going to play against us. It is clear that if we have a look at their players, the French are maybe the strongest national team, they’re world champions, and made the final in EURO 2016.”

Didier Deschamps, France boss said: “They’re a combative and hard-working team, and very well organised. I think them having an Italian coach explains a lot of that! They’re at home and I’m expecting them to show the same commitment they showed against Portugal. If we win again we’ll be qualified after two matches. That’s our first objective.”

Possible lineups for the teams.

Hungary Starting XI: Gulacsi; Botka, Orban, At. Szalai; Nagy; Lovrencsics, Kleinheisler, Schafer, Fiola; Ad. Szalai, Sallai

France Starting XI: Lloris; Pavard, Varane, Kimpembe, Hernández; Pogba, Kante, Rabiot, Griezmann; Benzema, Mbappe

Hungary, as mentioned, will play in Budapest, which will give them a psychological advantage, however, our prediction is that the vising side will pick up a 2-0 win.

Prediction: Hungary 0-2 France
