UEFA Euro 2020: Where to watch Hungary vs France live on June 19, 2021

June 18, 2021 By Emmanuel K. Budu-Annor
Les Bleus will travel to Ferenc Puskas Stadium in Budapest to take on Hungary in their second game of the group.

Preview

France will look to build on their first win in the ongoing European Championship when they take on Hungary in the first Group F clash of the day inside the Ferenc Puskas Stadium in Budapest. Les Bleus delivered a resounding performance on Tuesday night to secure a deserving 1-0 win over a Germany side who could be on the brink of elimination should they fail against Portugal in the other clash. An own-goal by Mats Hummels was enough to condemn Die Mannschaft to their first-ever opening day defeat in the history of the tournament, while France had the perfect start.

Head coach Didier Deschamps arguably has the best squad assembled for the tournament in terms of the talent at his disposal and will be eager to keep the winning run going despite the tricky test beckoning. At the moment, his side have been defeated just once across their last 22 outings, winning 18 and drawing on just three other occasions. They approach Saturday's clash unbeaten in their last eight outings and on the back of a five-game winning run. 

With the much-anticipated meeting with Portugal just a few days away, France will be out to see off the bullish Hungarian side to ease their nerves. Another cleansheet in the fixture will see them match a milestone of seven consecutive cleansheets which was last managed in 2007. Meanwhile, striker Olivier Giroud will be poised to get a shout at starting as he closes in on Thierry Henry's all-time international goalscoring record. Since the return of Karim Benzema, the 34-year-old striker - who is six goals away from breaking the record - has enjoyed mutiple spells on the bench for the Real Madrid man to be accommodated in the starting line-up.

For Hungary, the mission will be to hold their grounds right till the end and hope that they manage an upset against another finalist of the previous edition of the competition. In truth, the 3-0 defeat suffered against Portugal was not a fair reflection of the performance dished out by Marco Rossi's men on June 9th. Up until the 84th minute, it looked certain that they were on the verge of sharing spoils al for Raphael Guerrero to break the deadlock and Ronaldo to show his class right at the end and hit a record-breaking double. 

Needless to say, they will not settle on the disappointment of the previous encounter with the tournament fast approaching its business end. So far, they have done enough to make many question the label of underdogs being ascribed to them in what is the Euro 2020's 'Group of Death'. One cannot adequately emphasis the significance of a win and its impact to the group standings should they see off France in Saturday's clash. 

Essentially, Hungary will be required to end their two-game winless run in order to stand any chance of qualification to the next round. Maybe some motivation could be taken form the fact that they won their last three games prior to their final preparatory game played ahead of the tournament's commencement. 

Team news

Hungary midfielder Daniel Gazdag will miss out once more after missing the last defeat against Portugal. The player has been forced to withdraw from the tournament having failed to recover in time for the upcoming meeting with France. Aside the Philadelphia Union star, Hungary will not have much to worry about any more absentees and omissions.

On the contrary, France will have Kingsley Coman back in the fold after being excused following the birth of his child earlier this week. The Bayern Munich winger was not in the starting lineup in the win over Germany and could earn a place this time around. Meanwhile, Benjamin Pavard is expected to fill the right-back slot despite having complained about feeling 'unconsious' briefly following his collision with Robin Gosens in the last outing.

Predicted starting XI

  • Hungary: Gulacsi; Botka, Orban, At.Szalai; Lovrencsics, Schafer, Kleinheisler, Nagy, Fiola; Sallai, Ad.Szalai

  • France: Lloris; Pavard, Varane, Kimpembe, Hernandez; Pogba, Kante, Tolisso; Griezmann; Mbappe, Benzema.
