Saturday brings us Hungary vs. Switzerland, the second Group A game of the tournament. Both of these teams will have ambitions of getting out of the group, and a victory here is essential considering they will both face Germany.

Let’s delve into our Hungary vs Switzerland predictions and Euro 2024 picks for Saturday, June 15.

Hungary vs Switzerland picks and predictions

My best bet:
Hungary moneyline (+260 at Betano)

My analysis
Don’t get me wrong, the Swiss have some good players in their ranks. Granit Xhaka is fresh from the best season of his career at Bayer Leverkusen, Manuel Akanji just won the Premier League with Man City, and Xherdan Shaqiri offers experience despite his advanced years. 

That said, they really struggled in qualifying, finishing second behind a fairly average Romania team. The Swiss have also won just four out of their last 10 games and remain extremely stale in attack. 

Meanwhile, Hungary enters the weekend with just one loss in their last 16 games, coming in a 2-1 friendly defeat to Ireland earlier this month. I can let that result slide because they topped their qualifying group, one of just six teams to go unbeaten, alongside more acclaimed teams such as Portugal, England, and France.

This Hungary team might not have as many household names as Switzerland, but they operate as more than the sum of their parts. This is a strong team who are exceptionally well-drilled and tactically smart.

They averaged two goals scored per game in qualifying, and Dominik Szoboszlai is the straw that stirs the offensive attack. At +265, we have to back the Hungarians.

Hungary to win

Under 3.5 goals

Over 0.5 second-half goals

In addition to our best bet, we’re going to back Under 3.5 goals in the game. This game is likely to be a tight one, with Hungary having just about enough to get them over the line.

On that theme, the final leg of the Same-Game Parlay is for Over 0.5 second-half goals. There’s a really good chance that the first half could be either scoreless or see both teams go in level. That will set us up for a big second half, with Hungary and Switzerland both looking to snatch the go-ahead mark.
