Hungary vs France: the recent form of both teams
The hosts fell victim to a 3-0 defeat to a Cristiano Ronaldo-inspired Portugal during their first game. Hungary held off Portugal pretty well till the 84th minute but couldn’t pull off a finish which sums up their team. Hungary has not won against France since 1976 and beating the red hot favourites will be a very tough task. Their 11-game unbeaten streak across all competitions was ended at the hands of Portugal.

On the other hand, France started their Euro 2020 journey with a flyer against Germany. Didier Deschamps’s men put several past Neuer but all of them were ruled out as offside. Nevertheless, an own goal from Mats Hummels was the only goal in the match helping France to secure 3 points. Les Blue’s unbeaten run continues and they’ll look to extend it tonight against Hungary.

Hungary vs France: team news, head to head record and Probable starting xi
Hungarian midfielder Daniel Gazdag missed the opening defeat to Portugal due to injury and has withdrawn from the team for the remainder of the tournament. Although Rossi has no fresh concerns from Tuesday, he will look to reshuffle his starting xi to grind out the best possible result.
Hungary possible starting lineup:
Gulacsi; Botka, Orban, At.Szalai; Lovrencsics, Schafer, Kleinheisler, Nagy, Fiola; Sallai, Ad.Szalai
Although France right-back Benjamin Pavard completed the whole 90 minutes, he later revealed that he was unconscious for “10 to 15 seconds” against Germany after a collision with Robin Gosens. Kingsley Coman should be available after being granted leave earlier this week for the birth of his child. However, Didier Deschamps should stick with the same starting lineup and cement their place at the knockouts.
France possible starting lineup:
Lloris; Pavard, Varane, Kimpembe, Hernandez; Pogba, Kante, Rabiot; Griezmann; Mbappe, Benzema
Head to head:
Both the teams have played 23 games against each other. Although Hungary has won 12 games and lost 8 and holds the edge over France, things have changed in recent times and Hungary hasn’t registered a win over France since 1976. The other 3 occasions have ended in a draw.
