Germany vs Hungary: Euro 2024 prediction, kick-off time, team news, TV, live stream, h2h results, odds today

Germany face Hungary at Euro 2024 this afternoon, knowing that victory would seal their place in the knockout stages, while a point would almost certainly prove enough too.

The hosts got off to a flyer on opening night when they thrashed Scotland 5-1 at Bayern Munich’s Allianz Arena.


Even Emre Can scored — a late call-up after Bayern’s Aleksandar Pavlovic had to drop out of the squad on the eve of the tournament with tonsillitis.

Confidence ahead of the second group game will be growing among German fans, especially after watching the Hungarians — many people’s dark horses at the tournament — lose 3-1 to Switzerland in a hugely disappointing Group A opener for them.

Date, kick-off time and venue

Germany vs Hungary is scheduled for a 5pm BST kick-off today, Wednesday June 19, 2024.

The match will take place at the Stuttgart Arena.

Germany vs Hungary prediction

Julian Nagelsmann’s side will definitely head into the game as stern favourites, having thrashed Scotland and as the hosts.

The Hungarians are a well-organised side and took four points from a possible six off Germany during June 2022’s Nations League double-header, but anything other than a Germany win this time out would be an almighty shock.

Germany to win, 1-0.
