France vs Hungary Predictions


Their most recent clash against Germany revealed so many weak spots for Hungary, so I don’t see them stopping in-form France today. Les Bleus are tipped to win in small handicap.
  • France vs Hungary Predictions
  • Head to Head
  • France Form
  • Hungary Form

  • France have won 13 of their last 14 matches.
  • France have won their last 2 matches against Hungary.
  • Hungary have lost 2 of their last 3 matches.

Head to Head


France have an 8-3 advantage against Hungary with 2 draws in 13 matches.

The most recent head to head duel was won by France 35-32 in overtime in January 2021.

France Form


France opened the EURO 2024 with a convincing victory in the first round against North Macedonia 39-29 with Hugo Descat bagging seven goals.  

They struggled in their second appearance against Switzerland, winning only one point in a 26-26 draw.  

Third round clash against the tournament hosts Germany was a massive step up for the French side, beating the opposition 33-30.  

Les Bleus had a successful start to the second round, beating their old foes Croatia 34-32 and then Iceland 39-32. They made it three in a row and clinched semi-finals with a 33-28 victory against Austria. 

Hungary Form


Hungary were not among the top favorites to win their group in the first phase but cruised past the opposition and earned three straight victories.  

They opened the tournament with a narrow 26-24 victory against Montenegro, followed by even closer match against Serbia which they also won 28-27.  

The Hungarians wrapped up the 1st phase with a commanding 33-25 victory against favored Iceland and carried over the maximum number of points.  

The premiere match in the second phase was a disappointment, losing narrowly to Austria 30-29 but they bounced back as underdogs against Croatia 29-26. The semi-finals dream was almost crushed after losing to the tournament hosts Germany 35-28 two days ago. 

Verdict

Even if France rest some of their key players for the semi-finals, I don’t see them struggling much against out-of-form Hungary who lost two of their last three games.
