After the first round of games, France have already three points and Hungary still have zero points. The odds for this match are 1.30 in favour of France.

We will bring you our Hungary vs France tips and predictions below plus information on where to watch Hungary vs France and where to bet on Hungary vs France.
Hungary managed to qualify for the 2020 European Championship via the play offs. They finished in fourth place in Group E, behind Croatia, Wales, and Slovakia but due to their performances in the Nations League, Hungary progressed to the play offs semi-final and beat Bulgaria. They met Iceland in the final and came from a goal down to win in dramatic circumstances.
As the host for this game, they will be delighted to be participating in the tournament but must be considered the France vs Hungary outsider. They already lost to Portugal and there is no reason to believe that the result of their match against France could be any different. We all remember that Hungary last participated in a major tournament in the 2016 European Championship and caused a shock by finishing top of their group. However, this group is extremely difficult and it is highly unlikely Hungary are going to finish above France, Portugal, or Germany.
Current Situation in Group F
The betting odds for France vs Hungary have the hosts as the outsiders with Bet365 and that is not surprising. When creating France vs Hungary betting predictions, it is important to look back at previous meetings between the teams and Hungary have lost each of their last five matches against the French, with the most recent coming in 2005.

They played very well against Germany and they took very important three points after winning 1-0. Unibet offer very low odds for France to take maximum points from this game and move one step closer to the knockout stages.
We played a big game, against very good opponents too. I knew my players were going to be ready, but we were in everything, in the fight. We didn't struggle that much in the second half. It was a tough match with quality, talent. It was our first match, but it could've been a semi-final or a final. It won't be decisive, but with the quality of this German team... This victory will do us good. - Didier Deschamps after beating Germany, Sky Sports
There is a chance three teams will progress to the knockout stages of the competition from this group but this must be seen as a must win game for France, especially with Portugal and Germany in the group. France won eight of their 10 qualifying matches to finish top of their group, 2 points clear of second place Turkey and 6 points ahead of third place Iceland.
Only once in the previous six European Championships have France failed to get out of the group stage and they have twice won the competition. They were hoping to make it three victories when hosting the event in 2016 but France were defeated by Portugal in the final. That means France have lost only one of their last eight European Championship fixtures and they are considered the heavy favourites to win in this match. Read on for more predictions for France vs Hungary. Don't forget that France will finish the group stage with a very tough clash against the Portuguese.

France have some of the most exciting players in European football but one man who continue to go into the radar is Karim Benzema. The experienced striker has a great goalscoring record for Real Madrid and is likely to lead the line during the tournament if he can finally get some trust from Deschamps. Therefore, despite not featuring as heavily as the likes of Kylian Mbappe and Antoine Griezmann in the build-up, a France vs Hungary contender to open the scoring in this game is Benzema.
Hungary will be looking towards their talented young attacker, Dominik Szoboszlai. The RB Leipzig man scored a tremendous goal to seal Hungary’s place in the finals and has a great shot from distance. You can back Szoboszlai with William Hill to score any time during the match.
