Hungary and Switzerland will begin their Euro 2024 journeys with a Group A clash at the RheinEnergieStadion in Koln on Saturday afternoon.

Both teams are in Group A alongside Scotland and hosts Germany, who dominated with a 5-1 win over Scotland in the opening match of the tournament.

After not advancing past the group stage in Euro 2020, there’s a lot of hope surrounding Hungary as they enter Euro 2024, with many considering Marco Rossi’s team as dark horses for this summer’s competition.

Hungary have been in good form, losing only one of their last 14 matches since the start of 2023. They remained unbeaten in Euro 2024 qualifiers, winning five and drawing three out of eight games to top their group for the first time.

Ranked 26th in the world by FIFA, Hungary is preparing for their third consecutive European Championship appearance. They head to Germany after a convincing 3-0 win against Israel in their last warm-up match.

The Magyars quickly took a three-goal lead in the first 22 minutes, thanks to goals from Roland Sallai and Barnabas Varga, securing a comfortable win after a recent friendly loss to the Republic of Ireland.

Hungary aims to start Euro 2024 Group A strongly, but they face a Switzerland team that has won six of their last nine encounters.

This upcoming match will only be the second time Hungary and Switzerland meet in a major tournament. Hungary won the previous encounter 2-0 at the 1938 World Cup.

Possible lineups:

Hungary possible starting lineup:
Gulacsi, Lang, Orban, Szalai, Nego, A. Nagy, Schafer, Kerkez; Szoboszlai, Sallai, Vargas

Switzerland possible starting lineup:
Sommer, Schar, Akanji, Rodriguez; Widmer, Freuler, Xhaka, Ndoye, Shaqiri, Vargas, Amdouni.
