Germany, the host nation, and Scotland round out Group A. The competition begins on Friday night in Munich.

Hungary is full of hope going into Euro 2024 after losing in the group stage of Euro 2020; Marco Rossi’s team is widely regarded as one of the dark horses for this summer’s competition.

In fact, they only lost one of their last 14 international matches since the start of 2023. During this winning streak, they qualified for Euro 2024 without a loss, winning five and drawing three of their eight matches to lead their group for the first time.

Hungary is eager to get off to a strong start in Group A of Euro 2024, but they will face a Swiss team that has triumphed in six of the previous nine encounters between the two countries.

Switzerland, ranked 19th in the world by FIFA, fought their way through a difficult Euro 2024 qualification campaign, winning four and drawing five of ten games to place second in their group behind Romania.

Their lackluster performance put pressure on manager Murat Yakin at the conclusion of the previous year, but the 49-year-old managed to hang onto his position and is getting ready for his first European tournament as the Swiss manager—a four-game winning streak since the year’s beginning hasn’t hurt his cause.

The onus is on Yakin to lead Switzerland into the knockout stages and continue the legacy of his forerunners.

The Swiss have progressed past the group stage in the previous five European Championships and famously made it to the quarterfinals of Euro 2020, a remarkable achievement that they hope to repeat this summer.

Who will win?

Hungary 1-1 Switzerland

Although both countries are aware that winning on Saturday would give them a significant advantage in their quest to advance to the knockout stages, they may choose to approach the match pragmatically, which might lead to a fiercely contested match taking place in Koln.

Hungary, who have scored in each of their past 11 international matches, will fancy their chances of creating a net ripple, but we predict that their seasoned Swiss opponents will take home some of the spoils from their initial group-stage match.
