Germany vs Hungary:
Date: Saturday, 4 June 2016,
Kick-off: 17:00 GMT,
Venue: Veltins-Arena (Gelsenkirchen).
Germany are desperate for a win when they host Hungary in the final warm-up match for Euro 2016 at the Veltins-Arena in Gelsenkirchen on Saturday evening.
Germany’s 3-1 defeat against Slovakia last Sunday marked their third defeat in four games. They had lost to France and England and their only win came against Italy. The World Cup champions are touted to be tournament favorites for Euro 2016, but they are nowhere near what they used to be. The team has plenty of quality and experience at their side, but Joachim Low had made it a habit of tinkering with his formation in friendlies and this accounts for their poor results in recent months.
Hungary qualified from their first European championship after making their last appearance in 1972. This is also their first major tournament since the 1986 FIFA World Cup. Under the nomadic German, Bernd Storck the Magical Magyars have become a strong group after struggling during the initial parts of their qualification campaign. The squad is composed of players mainly from the domestic league and has a perfect mixture of youth and experience.
Germany: Predicted Line-up (4-2-3-1)
Leno – Hector, Rudiger, Boateng, Mustafi – Can, Khedira, Kross – Gortze, Ozil, Muller – Gomez.
Hungary: Predicted Line-up (4-2-3-1)
Kiraly –Kohut, Guzmics, Lang, Kadar – Gera, Nagy – Dzsudzsak, Kleinheiser, Nemeth – Priskin.
Germany vs Hungary: Head to Head Stat
The teams have met on four occasions since 1994, Germany won in 2, while Hungary 1 and drawn 1.
If the results of West Germany is also combined, the all-time stats read 12 wins, 10 draws and 10 defeats.
Germany won 2-0 against Hungary in their last meeting; on May 2010 at Puskás Ferenc Stadion.
Germany vs Hungary: Prediction
Germany might be on a poor run of form, but Hungary are also not in any sort of form after drawing in each of their last two matches. Joachim Low is desperate to see him team earn a win to prevent any drop in confidence of his team before heading to Euros.
The Magyars managed by German born Bernd Storck are pretty unpredictable and must not be taken lightly. Moreover, Hungary have lost just once in 8 matches, since he took charge in July 2015.
Goals are expected to fall at both ends, but Germans are expected to win this friendly against Hungary by a 3-1 margin.
Recommended Bet: Germany to win
Best Bet : Both Teams to Score
