France's Betting Odds
France had an impressive qualification campaign. They took 25 points from their 10 matches in Group H as they overcame some strong teams to get there. They finished top with Turkey just behind them in second on 23 points. Iceland and Albania – two sides that have qualified for major tournaments in recent years – also pushed them.
They won all of their matches except for the two against Turkey. They were beaten 2-0 at the Büyükşehir Stadium in Konya and drew 1-1 at the Stade de France. The only worry for Didier Deschamps is that the goals started to dry up for France as the qualification campaign went on.
Turkey were the only side to take points off France as Didier Deschamps’s side bossed Euro 2020 Qualifying Group H.

Scoring 25 goals and only conceding 6, France finished top of the group, showing no signs of a World Cup hangover.
They have been the most dominant side in tournament football for the past 6 years. Reaching the final of Euro 2016 before winning the 2018 FIFA World Cup.
The draw at Euro 2020 looks particularly tough for Didier Deschamps’s side. Their opening game in Munich against Germany will be a real test of their credentials. The play-off winning team are next up before they look to exact revenge on Portugal.
Picking a group winner between Germany, Portugal and France is tough, with all three sides possessing plenty of qualities. France are currently the team to beat however and have plenty of big players within their ranks. France are 7/5 with Paddy Power to win Euro 2020 Group F.
With three teams potentially qualifying from the group, ensuring progression from the initial stages will be the priority for Didier Deschamps’s side. France are 1/10 with BetVictor to progress from Euro 2020 Group F in any capacity.
France have reached the finals in their last 2 major tournaments and they look to be amid a golden generation of international footballers. France are 9/4 with BetVictor to reach the final of Euro 2020.

Hungary's Betting Odds
Hungary got out of qualification Group E to get to this point. They finished fourth in the group of five but still managed to qualify. Croatia and Wales took the automatic spots in the group while Slovakia finished above them and made it through the play-offs. Hungary missed out on automatic qualification by just three points in the end. It was a disappointing blow for manager Marco Rossi but they made it out of the play-offs. They secured a convincing 3-1 win over Bulgaria in the semi-finals before a tricky fixture against Iceland in the finals. A late Dominik Szoboszlai secured the 2-1 win for Hungary to take them to the finals.
It’s difficult to see how Hungary can progress from such a tough group, although they do have the benefit of playing their first two matches on home soil at the Puskas Arena in Budapest against Portugal and France.
After failing to qualify to a major tournament for 30 years, there have been definite signs of progress for Hungary in recent years, having now qualified for consecutive European Championship finals and secured promotion to the 2022-23 UEFA Nations League A.
The Magyars are a whopping 40/1 with SportNation to top Group F and 4/1 with BetVictor just to qualify (which could theoretically be achieved with a third place finish in the group).

HUNGARY vs FRANCE: Predictions
We wouldn’t expect France vs. Portugal to feature a ton of goals, and we’ll be looking to play an under in that matchup, especially if we see rotated sides. It will depend on the situation and who needs what to qualify, but both teams’ styles contrast each other in ways that make for a cagey affair without a ton of scoring chances.
France is the consensus favorite to win the tournament, but will be tested much more in the group stage than it was in the World Cup or last European championship.
The French have a plethora of attacking talent, buoyed by the return of Karim Benzema (Real Madrid) up top to replace striker Olivier Giroud (Chelsea) in the starting lineup. He’ll make the country even more dangerous on the attack, which will line up in a conservative diamond 4-4-2 formation of sorts.
Eight of the 11 starters from the World Cup final are expected to start again, but rotation will be a key given how many minutes their key players have played for their domestic clubs.
France will start four natural center backs with Benjamin Pavard (Bayern Munich) on the right; Lucas Hernandez (Bayern Munich) on the left; Raphael Varane (Real Madrid); and, Presnel Kimpembe (Paris Saint-Germain) in the middle. That’s three of the same four from the 2018 squad, with Kimpembe replacing Samuel Umtiti.
Hungary has some decent players, but ultimately doesn’t have nearly enough firepower to hang in this group. The squad has been a decent sleeper to advance in any other group, but it’ll be a heavy underdog in all three matchups, even the two games they’re playing on home soil.
