Germany will try to follow up a statement victory by advancing to the knockout stage when it hosts Hungary on Wednesday in its final Group F match at Euro 2020. Germany drew questions about its ability to advance from the Group of Death after a lackluster performance in a 1-0 loss to France in its opener. Then it came out and dominated in a 4-2 victory against Portugal on Saturday. It still needs a victory to assure a spot in the knockout stage and faces a gritty Hungary team that made a statement of its own with a 1-1 draw with France. The Hungarians must win to go through after opening with a 3-0 loss to Portugal.

Why you should back Germany
Hungary has been a thorn in the side of both teams it has faced, but it won't have the boisterous home crowd on its side this time. Germany will, and with the immense talent also on its side, a positive result for Hungary would be stunning. Elite playmakers Thomas Muller and Toni Kroos remain from the 2014 World Cup championship team, and they have barely lost a step. Muller led the Bundesliga with 19 assists and also had 11 goals for champion Bayern Munich, and his field vision is second to none. Kroos had 10 assists in La Liga with runner-up Real Madrid.
Wing backs Joshua Kimmich and Robin Gosens were the best players on the field against Portugal. Their low crosses rattled the Portugal defense, and it put two of them into its own net. The Germans are also stout in the back, with Mats Hummel, Matthias Ginte and Antonio Rudiger holding the line in front of world-class goalkeeper Manuel Neuer. The attack is loaded, with Serge Gnabry likely to play along with speedy Kai Havertz, with support from Ilkay Gundogan.
Why you should back Hungary
The Hungarians have shown a lot of grit after being given no chance to advance out of the group of death. They held Portugal off the score sheet for 84 minutes before Cristiano Ronaldo and Co. took over late. It took the lead on reigning world champion France late in the first half Saturday and hung on under immense pressure from a powerful attack after the equalizer. Hungary came into the Euro 2020 group stage on an 11-game unbeaten run (7-4-0) before the Portugal setback. It scored multiple goals six times in those 11 matches and kept five clean sheets.
Hungary is unlikely to be intimidated, with many of these players familiar from playing together in the Bundesliga. RB Leipzig defender Willi Orban makes a difference on both ends. He is the team's top scorer in 2021 with three goals, while 10 other players have at least one. The attack is led by Freiburg's Roland Sallai but is likely to be missing captain Adam Szalai, with Nemanja Nikolic expected to take his place up top. The 24-year-old Sallai has 12 goals over the last three Bundesliga seasons, while Nikolic had 15 in the Hungarian league last season.
