Hungary: Giant Killers
Right from the recently concluded Euro 2020, Hungary has been locking horns with some of Europe’s elite. Despite not winning every single match, they really have been a thorn in the side for these teams.
Hungary proved a tough nut to crack in the Euro 2020 Group of Death and has begun their Nations League campaign in a similar fashion, pulling off the upset against England. They were ultimately undone by Italy’s influential midfielders on Tuesday, losing 2-1 on the road. Hungary failed to qualify for the World Cup, finishing their qualification group in fourth place, behind England, Poland and Albania.
Hungary have made a habit of winning one and then losing one on home soil over the past 12 months, which is worrying ahead of Saturday’s clash against Germany. They lost just one home game in the UEFA Nations League since its inception and have found the back of the net in every home game in the competition.
Hungary can’t be counted amongst the heavyweights of European football, but we can’t write them off as they have produced many upsets in recent years. Still, we can’t include them in our soccer picks and parlays against Germany, but we expect them to find the back of the net as they did in every single UNL home fixture.
Hungary has lost midfielder Andras Schafer to suspension after the Union Berlin man picked up his second booking of the tournament. RB Leipzig’s Peter Gulacsi should be back in the starting lineup after being left on the bench against Italy. The attacking trio of Dominik Szoboszlai, Adam Szalai and Roland Sallai should remain intact.
Germany have high hopes for the upcoming World Cup but they failed to win their two UNL opening games against Italy and England. They have so far been under par, but at least they managed not to lose against two of the best European teams.
The Germans produced a fine display against the Three Lions, but Harry Kane’s late penalty eventually helped Gareth Southgate’s team pick up one point from the match. Hansi Flick’s side has now posted three successive 1-1 draw in all competitions. Flick has overseen an 11-game unbeaten run at the helm since Germany got knocked out of Euro 2020 by England. Die Mannschaft has never failed to score during this period, winning eight games in the process.
Both Leon Goretzka and Serge Gnabry are pushing for a start, while Timo Werner should lead the line for Hansi Flick’s troops this time out. Marco Reus missed the first two UNL games and is now confirmed to be sitting out for the entire international break. If you’re betting online, you should know that Germany are on a three-game winless run and they never recorded four of them.
Hungary vs Germany Head-to-Head
The two sides last faced each other 12 months ago in the group stages of Euro 2020 with Hungary managing to keep Germany to a 2-2 draw after a superb display. Germans might have drawn their previous three fixtures across all competitions, but it also needs to be mentioned that they were on an 8-game winning streak before that. And during these 8 matches, they had found the back of the net an impressive 33 times. Hungary is winless in 10 of their past 15 overall fixtures, and they had also lost three of their former five appearances in front of their fans.

Hungary vs Germany Predictions
The visitors enter this clash as heavy favorites being priced at -260 on the three-way Moneyline according to the latest soccer odds while the goal line is set at 2½.
Hungary’s goalscoring form on home soil may run out against a rock-solid German defense. As we previously stated, Germany is on a three-game winless run and they have a tone of world-class well-rested players ready to help their country return to winning ways. This upcoming encounter might be their last chance to get back into this tournament as they are trailing leaders Italy by two points.
It’s difficult to go against Hungary not to find the back of the net on home soil so we will avoid that market but Germany’s attacking firepower should be able to prevail in this clash. Backing Germany to win this clash is not the ideal way to approach this game so we will combine the ML and the goals market for a better price.
