Tom Fenton’s Germany v Hungary preview: Die Mannschaft to seal comfortable win in Munich
Our Matchday Squad journalist will be covering Germany throughout Euro 2020
The Germans head into their third and final group game against Hungary full of confidence. A superb 4-2 victory over Portugal last time out was, in many ways, a throwback performance to the Germany of old under coach Joachim Low.
The task against the Hungarians at the Allianz Arena is to seal a win. A draw will also be enough for Die Mannschaft to qualify into the last 16, but after the way they played last Saturday, it should not be their target.
The hosts have a relatively clean bill of health heading into Wednesday’s clash, with Jonas Hofmann and Lukas Klostermann the only slight fitness concerns – although both could be fit enough for the bench.
Leon Goretzka marked his return to action with a late cameo against Portugal, and the powerful midfielder is now fully available for selection once again. It will be fascinating to see whether Low makes any changes for this game, as fatigue could become a real issue in the knockout stages without some squad rotation.
Overall, I expect Germany to run out fairly comfortable winners, as without home advantage, the Hungarians may struggle. 3-0 Germany.
