Hungary to Win

Reason for tip

Hungary have won four of their last five internationals and after an impressive qualifying campaign, they arrive in Germany with the talent to make a deep run. The Swiss are tournament regulars, but patchy form in the build-up makes Hungary look well-priced for victory.

Hungary 2-1

Reason for tip

Seven of Hungary’s last 10 games have seen both teams score, while six of Switzerland’s last eight qualifiers saw both teams score. Back Hungary to have too much for the Swiss, so back a 2-1 win.

Barnabas Varga To Score Anytime

Reason for tip

Barnabas Varga is having a late international flourish at 29-years-old. He made his international debut in 2023 and he has six strikes in his first 11 games for his nation. The forward scored twice in their final warm-up game and he netted in his last four appearances in qualifying.

Hungary vs Switzerland Predictions

  • Hungary have won four of their last five games
  • The Hungarians impressed at Euro 2020 and beat England home and away in 2022
  • The Swiss performed poorly in qualifying and were thumped in their final game at the 2022 World Cup

Expectations are growing for Hungary

Hungary had a quietly impressive Euro 2020 campaign three years ago, taking two points from three games in a group with France, Portugal and Germany. They gave the Germans a real scare in a clash in Munich and their talented side has progressed in the years since.

Hungary beat Germany away from home in the Nations League in 2022, while they also beat England home and away en route to finishing second in a tough group which also featured European champions Italy.

Hungary qualified for the Euros unbeaten in Group G, topping Serbia and scoring 16 goals across their eight matches. With the side coming into this clash having won four of their last five games, Hungary are one of the most intriguing prospects at this tournament.

Can the Swiss roll back the years?

Switzerland are always regarded as a solid tournament team, but their qualifying campaign wasn’t too impressive and they’ve had mixed returns since. The Swiss finished five points shy of Romania in qualifying, while they exited the last World Cup with a 6-1 dismantling by Portugal.

This Swiss side is ageing, while key players Breel Embolo and Denis Zakaria are in a race to be fit for the tournament. The Swiss have produced some poor displays since the World Cup and it does feel like the end of a very successful era for a team which has made the knockout stage at the last five major tournaments.

Hungary to take major step

Hungary have beaten bigger names than Switzerland in recent years, but a tournament victory would be a huge occasion for this team. Marco Rossi continues to climb to new heights with a side who have arguably their best generation since the 1950s, with emerging talents joining Liverpool’s Dominik Szoboszlai.

Among them is Barnabas Varga, who made his debut for his country just last year despite being 29 years old. He scored twice in a 3-0 win over Israel in Hungary’s send-off clash. He also netted in each of his last four appearances in qualifying, so he’s a great anytime scorer option.

The Swiss are seen as favourites for this one but Hungary have a strong side, better form and a clear identity. They are set for a breakout tournament, so take the great value available on them in their opener.
