Ace Football previews the Group F match between Hungary and France in Euro 2020 and offers betting tips, the best odds, predictions, and form guides.
Hungary go up against France this Saturday in a game played out at Puskas Arena. This is their second outing in the group stages of Euro 2020. While Hungarians enter the Euro 2020 as number 37 in the FIFA world rankings, there is a pretty big gap to their 2nd-placed opponent.
Before heading into their first match Hungary rank as hefty favorites with the bookmakers to finish bottom of the group. Against reigning World and European Champions they face a daunting prospect. The Magyars went the hard way through playoffs before booking a spot at the Euro 2020 after failing to seal a place directly in the group stages. Seeing them even get out of Group F at this tournament would be a huge surprise.
France have for a long time been considered a top favorite to win the competition and they had little trouble qualifying as winners of their group
