Hungary v Belgium background

Hungary have beaten Austria and held Iceland and Portugal at UEFA EURO 2016; can they now account for Belgium and make their way to the quarter-finals?

Hungary have defied all expectations to make it to the last 16 of UEFA EURO 2016 and will look to cause another upset when they take on Marc Wilmots's highly-rated Belgium in Toulouse.

Previous meetings
• The sides have met 12 times, with eight Belgium wins, two for Hungary and two draws.

• Belgium and Hungary have not met in a competitive fixture since the 1982 FIFA World Cup when they drew 1-1 in Elche, Alex Czerniatynski's late equaliser taking the Red Devils through to the second phase at their opponents' expense.

• Their only other competitive encounter was the third-place play-off at the 1972 UEFA European Championship, with Belgium's Paul Van Himst scoring the winner in a 2-1 success for the tournament hosts.

• Their only clash of the past 20 years was a November 2009 friendly in Ghent, which Belgium dominated 3-0 with goals from Marouane Fellaini, Thomas Vermaelen and Kevin Mirallas.
