Hungary vs Switzerland: Euro 2024 prediction, kick-off time, TV, live stream, team news, h2h results, odds

Hungary are being tipped as one of the dark horses for Euro 2024 as they begin their campaign against Switzerland in Group A.

Marco Rossi’s side went unbeaten through qualifying and look a much-improved side to the one who exited in the group stage of Euro 2020 in dramatic fashion.

Their 4-0 win over England in 2022 proved what a dangerous team they can be.

The Swiss, meanwhile, endured a difficult qualification process and finished second behind Romania. That led to manager Murat Yakin coming under huge scrutiny but he kept his job.

Having reached the knockout stages in the last five international tournaments, they are at least hugely experienced on this stage.

Here’s everything you need to know about the game in a difficult-looking Group A.

Date, kick-off time and venue

Hungary vs Switzerland is scheduled for a 2pm BST kick-off time on Saturday 15 June, 2024.

The Cologne Stadium will host.

For the Swiss, this is a golden generation.

Breel Embolo is ruled out so Burnley youngster Zeki Amdouni should lead the line.
