Hungary will look to avoid elimination from Euro 2024 when they square off against Germany in a Group A match on Wednesday at Stuttgart Arena in Stuttgart. After losing their first Euro 2024 match to Switzerland 3-1, the Hungarians sit third in the group behind the Germans and Swiss. While a loss to Germany on Wednesday would not automatically end Hungary's chances at reaching the knockout stage – they could still earn one of the four third-place spots to advance – they would be best served by earning a result. Meanwhile, Germany would almost certainly clinch a spot in the knockout round with a win and would clinch if Switzerland also beat Scotland later on Wednesday.

Kickoff is set for noon ET. The Germans are the -400 favorites (risk $400 to win $100) in the latest Germany vs. Hungary odds, with Hungary the +1000 underdogs. A draw is priced at +500, and the over/under for total goals scored is 2.5.

Why you should back Germany

The Germans are coming off a dominant performance against Scotland. In the Euro 2024 opener on Friday, Germany dominated possession (68%) and held the Tartan Army to zero attempts on target, zero corners, and 0.00 expected goals in a 5-1 rout. The Germans spread the scoring offensively with Florian Wirtz, Jamal Musiala, Kai Havertz, Niclas Füllkrug and Emre Can all scoring.

Germany will face a Hungary defense that struggled against Switzerland. Despite starting a solid back three of Attila Szalai, Willi Orban and Adam Lang, the Hungarians were exposed by the pace of Switzerland's Breel Embolo after he came off the bench in the second half. Hungary allowed the Swiss to take 15 shots, including seven on target. See which team to pick here.

Why you should back Hungary

The Hungarians have a young star in Dominik Szoboszlai. The 23-year-old midfielder and Hungarian captain was having an impactful first season for Liverpool in the Premier League before a hamstring injury on Jan. 1 had him in and out of the lineup for the rest of the season. He has 12 goals in 43 career appearances for Hungary and, in Saturday's loss to Switzerland, made the cross that led to the team's only goal.

In addition, the Hungarians have had surprising success against the Germans recently. Hungary are unbeaten in the last three meetings against Germany, a stretch that dates back to June 2021. The last time these teams met, Hungary earned a 1-0 victory in the Nations League in September 2022. See which team to pick here.
