Germany, yet to lose 11 matches into their Hansi Flick rebuild, will be favourites to chalk up a first group victory following draws against Italy and England, but they won't be taking anything for granted at the Puskás Aréna. Hungary have acquitted themselves excellently thus far and are a point ahead of their guests in second place in the group.
Marco Rossi's side produced arguably their best performance of his tenure in defeating England here on Saturday, and Italy certainly didn't have it all their own way in Cesena. Last summer's corresponding EURO fixture served up an entertaining 2-2 draw in Munich and, with numerous Bundesliga-based players in the Hungary team, there's no shortage of interesting sub-plots.
What the coaches say
Marco Rossi, Hungary coach: "Out of our three opponents, Germany are in the best shape and the most dangerous. It'll be tough to rein them in, dictate the match and play our own game. We'll be endeavouring to do so though, and I'm confident that this will show in the result. Overall, I'm happy with how we've performed, how organised we've been, and how the players have followed my instructions so far. Only in this way can we compete against such illustrious opponents."
Hansi Flick, Germany coach: "The four games now are for us to check where we are. A lot can change quickly in football and in life. It's important that those who come in also show that they can help the team: they have done that impressively. For me, it's just important that you trust the players. We will do that. We want to make each individual a little bit better so that we can be even better in Qatar."
