Hungary vs France betting tip: Hungary 0-2 France

France never had to get out of first gear against Germany in their opening fixture in Group F in a 1-0 win against Joachim Löw’s outfit, but as they grow into proceedings this summer, big things are expected from Les Blues and rightfully so. Hungary will try their best to make it difficult for the French as they did against Portugal and came within 6-minutes (plus stoppage) of earning a big point against the current holders. France should prove too much for Hungary in Budapest, however, though they may find it just as difficult to find goals early.

Recommended Hungary vs France betting tips

Scorecast: Karim Benzema to Score 1st/France 2-0 Correct Score (14/1 odds)

No France player got on the scoresheet against Germany, but the understanding between forward pair Kylian Mbappé and Karim Benzema has already begun to show, and the pair nearly combined to give France a 2-0 lead through the Real Madrid center-forward if not for the goal to be pulled back for offside. Benzema’s return to the national team fold has been a breath of fresh air for one of Europe’s top forwards, and though Olivier Giroud’s record for his country has been excellent, Benzema brings a level of ability that elevates an already ridiculously stacked team. He will undoubtedly find goals this tournament, and while Mbappé continues to draw attention given his rising star, Benzema’s ever-present consistent threat through multiple veins could have him officially open France’s account this summer to kick things off at the weekend.

To Score Anytime: Antoine Griezmann

Though others have been getting attention in the run-up to Euro 2020, Antoine Griezmann remains both gifted and incredibly important to France this summer. The Atlético Madrid forward scored in three straight matches for Les Bleus before their win against Germany, finding the back of the net against Bosnia & Herzegovina, Wales, and Bulgaria. Playing just behind the Mbappé-Benzema forward duopoly could afford Griezmann the ability to find looks just outside the area, or make late-runs into the box to feed off of service from either forward.

Hungary vs France betting tips: Match preview

Six minutes is all it would have taken for Hungary to produce one of their best results at a major international tournament in decades, but the gap in quality would eventually push Portugal over the line in a 3-0 win for the current holders.

No one gave Hungary hope or a prayer when they were drawn into Euro 2020’s group of death, one that features three nations that reside in the top-12 of FIFA’s world rankings. Truthfully, even a single point earned in front of the home support across group play in Budapest for Magyarok would be considered an achievement, especially when consideration is given to the fact that star midfielder Dominik Szoboszlai will be missing this summer after the RB Leipzig man has dealt with one injury issue after another since his move from RB Salzburg in January.

Most of Hungary’s core players reside in the Bundesliga, and those same names were expectedly the nation’s best performers on the night as well as the ever-present László Kleinheisler, who currently plies his trade in Croatia at NK Osijek. But the central figures of Ádám Szalai, Roland Sallai, and Szoboszlai’s Leipzig teammates Willi Orbán and Péter Gulácsi, must all do their part if Hungary wants to be more than a well-drilled outfit that makes it difficult for their opponents. Holding a gifted Portugal outfit at bey for 84-minutes is deserving of some measure of praise, but chances at the other end will likely continue to come a premium. If Hungary has dreams of repeating their performance at Euro 2016, they’ll need to fill the Szoboszlai void effectively if they’re to crack open France on Saturday.

France to take a page from the 2018 playbook

When France can get a result against a struggling yet still dangerous Germany while barely putting the key in the ignition, you know you are in trouble. It may have only been a 1-0 result, and the goal may have come courtesy of a Mats Hummels own-goal, but France knows better than anyone in recent years that tournament play is all about early results over scintillating performances.

Didier Deschamps’ Les Bleus never looked out of sorts, either. Though Germany can boast about having the bulk of possession (58.5%) and more than double the total shots by comparison (10-4), Joachim Löw’s outfit looked disjointed as ever in the final third, while genuinely never getting a real chance to make the French break a sweat. Many will continue to laud the absolute plethora of talent residing in the national pool for France, and rightfully so, but perhaps their biggest strength – and the reason why they are current World Cup holders while finalists back at Euro 2016 – is their ability to be just as good as the dominant side as they are when they allow their opponent to dictate terms in possession.

The reinstatement of Karim Benzema into the national team fold received much of the attention in the run-up to the tournament, and he already looks to mesh well with Kylian Mbappé and Antoine Griezmann in a frightening front-three, but the contributions of both Paul Pogba and N’Golo Kanté in midfield cannot be understated either. Pogba in the blue of France reminds us why he has been so heavily lauded throughout his career, while Kanté quietly going about being the little colonel in midfield could genuinely be their biggest asset overall. Much like in Russia in 2018, France did not truly kick into gear until the knockout stages and considering their inclusion in the group of death, results are all that matter for the minute. Topping Group F would serve as the final warning shot that they are here to accept nothing short of total victory come the final at Wembley, and perhaps we should all be prepared for that.

Hungary team news vs France

Hungary boss Marco Rossi has no fresh injury or selection concerns as Magyarok tries to bounce back against France in the wake of their heavy matchday one defeat against Portugal.

It took Portugal 84-minutes to break the 0-0 deadlock against Hungary, so Rossi may actually change little to the matchday XI as they were so close to a valuable point against the holding European Champions.

France team news vs Hungary

France icon Didier Deschamps looks to once again ease France into an international tournament after their 1-0 against Germany in Munich, and it is expected that he will field his best XI in a bid to book passage to the knockout stage before clashing with Portugal.

The only fitness concern in the French camps comes way of Bayern Munich right-back Benjamin Pavard who suffered a head injury against Joachim Löw’s men and may be held back from the XI as a precautionary measure. Olympique Lyonnais right-back Léo Dubois would likely deputize in his place should he be held in reserve.
