Hungary almost pulled an upset in the opening match of the Group of Death, but they eventually succumbed to Portugal after conceding 3 late goals. They will now have an equally tough task, as they will play host to France on Saturday.
France are coming off a mediocre match against Germany, in which they did grab all 3 points.
Hungary are coming into this match after a seemingly unfair 3-0 loss to Portugal in the opening match.
It was a rather quiet first half, where Hungary had just 1 shot on target, while Portugal could have taken the lead if they made better decisions.
The second half was much more active than the first, with Hungary threatening Portugal on numerous occasions. It all looked like a Draw, but Portugal managed to score 3 goals in the final 10 minutes of the match, including a Penalty Kick by Cristiano Ronaldo.
Hungary will be kicking themselves for not holding out for the Draw, and they are now in a place that they were expected to be. At the bottom of the group, looking for a miracle that will most likely not come.
They need to win at least one of their two remaining matches (against France and Germany), and even that might not be enough to see them through.
France will surely be kicking themselves after what happened in the opening match against France.
France did their duty in the opener against Germany, but that match was rather dull. France managed to take the lead at the 20th minute when Hernandez took a shot from the left flan that was deflected into the goal by Germany’s defender Mats Hummels.
France did not create many chances, just 4 in the entire match, with just 1 shot on target, but they did an excellent job defensively, allowing Germany to take just a single shot on target.
They even had a disallowed goal (Benzema at the 85th minute, offside), but they got the job done and made a huge step towards qualifying.
A second win against Hungary could potentially push them to the top of the group with Portugal clashing against Germany in the other match of the group.
Hungary vs. France Prediction:
Hungary were actually better than expected in the opener against Portugal, but despite their efforts they ended up losing by a harsh 3-0. They will play the same type of defense against France and hope to score a goal in one of the few expected chances they’ll have in the match.
France did not have to stress it out in the opener and they should be better against Hungary. Mbappe will terrorize the slow Hungarian defense, while Benzema will be in for quite a physical game.
The Under 2.5 Goals is something to consider, as I expect to see a very defensive-minded match between the two sides.
However, France are more than able to cover the -1.5 spread at plus money, and that’s where I’m going today.
