Team news, injury updates, latest odds for Germany vs Hungary Group F clash as Joachim Low’s aces target knockouts

Germany are targeting their second win on the bounce in the Euros by consigning Marco Rossi’s Hungary to a defeat this evening.

And the world’s twelfth best team will be looking to beat their opponents for their third time in 11 years when the rivals battle it out in Munich.

Should Portugal triumph against France it would give Joachim Low’s side the chance to top Group F if they defeat Hungary. 

The match at the Allianz Arena will kick-off at 8pm and will be aired on BBC Two.


What’s the form?

Germany have lost two of their last eight international fixtures with their most recent defeat occurring against France in their opening Euros match.

And they fell to a heavy 6-0 Nations League loss against Spain in November 2020. 

But Low’s men brushed aside their rocky start to this year's Euros sealing a 4-2 win against Portugal last time out. 

The Germans were boosted by two own goals in their favour before strikes from Kai Havertz, 22, and man-of-the-match Robin Gosens, 26, wrapped up their victory. 

Meanwhile Hungary have picked up a solitary point from their two opening group stage clashes

They help tournament favourites France to a 1-1 draw after losing 3-0 to Portugal with Cristiano Ronaldo netting twice 

And a loss to Germany would see Rossi’s men exit the contest.

At a tournament you know how it goes, step by step. The next step will be Hungary, which will be hard as they park the bus in defence.

Joachim Low - Germany head coach

Who’s in and who’s out?

Thomas Muller, 31, is likely to be out of action after picking up a knee injury during Germany’s win against Portugal. 

Reports claim Bayern Munich winger Leroy Sane, 25, could be in line to replace the veteran striker who helped his side win the 2014 World Cup. 

The former Manchester ace has netted seven times in 32 senior international appearances for Germany. 

And Mats Hummels is thought to be contending with a knee injury but it’s thought the defender could be starting in Low’s side this evening. 

Meanwhile Nemanja Nikolic is expected to keep his place in Hungary’s attack with team-mate Adam Szalai recovering from a head injury sustained during his team’s 0-0 draw with France.

Watch out for……

Robin Gosens. The wing-back who once dreamt of becoming a policeman, was in fine form for Germany during their win against Portugal. 

The Atalanta defender netted a spectacular goal burying a header in mid-air

And the Serie A ace is reportedly a summer transfer target for LaLiga giants Barcelona.

And Hungary’s Laszlo Kleinheisler is another player to watch following his impressive midfield shift against France. 

The 27-year-old who plays for Croatian club Osijek had the most the successful pass rate of any player during his team’s draw with the 2018 World Cup winners

And his efforts earned him Uefa’s man of the match prize. 

If the game’s rubbish 

Izabel Goulart is a major Brazil fan and also the partner of Germany back-up goalkeeper Kevin Trapp who is 30.  

The stunning Victoria Secrets model is a popular figure in her home country where she was chosen to lead a procession of 200 dancers at the closing ceremony of the 2016 Rio Olympics.  

Goulart, 36, has also made guest appearances in US TV shows including Two And A Half Men and Entourage.
