  • HOME: 27/100 (1.27) – 78.7%

*odds from Ladbrokes, subject to change

Euro 2024 hosts Germany got their tournament off to the perfect start in the competition’s curtain-raiser against Scotland, running out 5-1 winners in spectacular fashion and Die Mannschaft should be brimming with confidence against Hungary as a result. Another showcase of slick football should allow the Germans to collect another three points on Wednesday and the bookies have priced them as short as 27/100 to prevail.

Hungary meanwhile, are already on the brink of elimination following their hugely disappointing 3-1 loss to Switzerland on matchday one. Big things were expected of the Hungarians, however, they looked flat and uninspired against the Swiss and the bookies have given them only a 10.5% chance of upsetting the odds against an even better German outfit.

Germany preview: Hosts could be unchanged

Julian Nagelsmann deployed Germany in a 4-2-3-1 formation with Kai Havertz as the team's spearhead against Scotland and the same set-up and personnel could be used against Hungary. Toni Kroos and Robert Andrich could be paired together again in midfield.

Predicted lineup: Neuer (GK), Kimmich, Rudiger, Tah, Mittelstadt, Andrich, Kroos, Musiala, Gundogan, Wirtz, Havertz

Hungary preview: Changes likely?

Hungary were thoroughly outclassed by Switzerland in their 3-1 loss on matchday one and they mustered just six attempts on goal across their limp display. Manager Marco Rossi will be tempted to make changes to his XI after that horror show and Bendeguz Bolla, Laszlo Kleinheisler and Marton Dardai will be among those pushing to start.

Predicted lineup: Gulacsi (GK), Bolla, Orban, Szalai, Fiola, Nagy, Schafer, Kerkez, Sallai, Szoboszlai, Varga

Player to watch – Toni Kroos

While Florian Wirtz and Jamal Musiala stole most of the headlines following Germany’s 5-1 win over Scotland in the opening fixture of Euro 2024, it was classy operator Toni Kroos who ran proceeding and the veteran used his tempo-setting skills to excellent effect against the Scots.

Kroos pulls the strings

Kroos played a game-high 101 accurate passes during his controlled performance against Scotland and the 34-year-old also played the joint-most key passes in the contest (four) as he picked Germany’s opponents apart with his laser-like distribution.
