Fortune certainly favoured Die Mannschaft in their crucial 4-2 win over reigning champions Portugal, a pair of clumsy own goals overturning a deficit to put them on their way to victory, and it’ll be intriguing to see if they can use that as a launchpad to get through another high-pressure tie.
Hungary’s dream of qualification seemed preposterous just days ago, but it’s not over yet for the Magyars, who came so close to pulling off the upset of the tournament at the weekend – world champions France eventually fighting back to grab a 1-1 draw. Then again, so fine are the margins that both sides could also finish bottom of the group.
Germany fought back after conceding first against Portugal to eventually comfortably win. The team’s younger talents like Kai Havertz and Serge Gnabry were the real stars of the show, but veterans Toni Kroos and Thomas Müller also put in solid shifts.
The entire nation of Hungary was in dreamland when they took the lead against current World Champions France in their last game. While the French did eventually equalize, the team earned a spirited draw and showed enough to suggest they could prove a tricky opposition for Germany.
Germany is coming off a thrilling 4-2 win against Portugal. But against Hungary, Germany will likely have to do without Thomas Müller after the Bayern Munich star sustained a knee injury in the win, although Leon Goretzka looks set to return
France, who are the reigning World Champions, will go into this game as the favorites, but Portugal have players who can hurt any team: Bruno Fernandes, Bernardo Silva, and, of course, Cristiano Ronaldo are the dangermen to look out for.
Whatever the personnel, though, there’s something serious at stake for both teams here. This fixture is a repeat of the final from Euro 2016 which the French team lost. Didier Deschamps’ side would like nothing more than to do their part in eliminating the Portuguese from this competition. A win for Hungary in Munich would make that possible if Les Blues can get the victory.
