Germany vs Hungary LIVE!

Goals from Jamal Musiala and Ilkay Gundogan gave Germany a comfortable 2-0 win over Hungary in Group A on Wednesday that made the host nation set to be the first side to qualify for the knockout stage at Euro 2024.

With two wins out of two, the Germans look certain to be at least among the four best third-placed teams, and they will finish in the top two of the group if Scotland fail to beat Switzerland later on tonight. That scenario would also prevent Hungary from finishing in the top two.

Musiala gave the Germans the lead in the 22nd minute after some horrendous Hungarian defending led to the ball being poked into his path by Gundogan, and the 21-year-old needed no second invitation, hammering the ball in via a defender.

Roland Sallai had a goal ruled out in first-half stoppage time for Hungary and they wasted a number of other decent chances before Gundogan scored in the 67th minute with a simple finish after a superb build-up to wrap up the three points.

Germany vs Hungary highlights

  • GOAL! Musiala puts hosts ahead

  • OFFSIDE! Sallai's leveller disallowed

  • MISS! Varga spurs huge Hungary chance

  • GOAL! Gundogan adds vital second

Ready for more Euros football?

Germany on brink of knockouts

19:01 , Marc Mayo

It is not quite signed, sealed and delivered for reaching the last-16 for Germany.

But only a wild turn of events can see them drop to third place and then also finish outside the top-ranked sides.

Scotland failing to beat Switzerland would confirm their spot tonight.

Full time!

18:52 , Marc Mayo

Germany make it two wins from two!

Germany 2-0 Hungary | 90+3 mins

Dominik Szoboszlai booked for kicking the ball away out of frustration.

Germany 2-0 Hungary | 89 mins

18:49 , Marc Mayo


Maximillian Mittelstadt booked for a swipe and Hungary send the free-kick into the box...

A bit of a scramble and it’s cleared off the line!

Penalty appeals also dismissed.

Germany 2-0 Hungary | 88 mins

18:46 , Marc Mayo

Fresh faces in attack for Hungary. Barnabas Varga and Roland Sallai off. On come Daniel Gazdag and Kevin Csoboth.

Germany 2-0 Hungary | 84 mins

18:43 , Marc Mayo

A good Hungary ball in is only narrowly dealt with and Julian Nagelsmann makes another change. Ilkay Gundogan, scorer of the second goal, departs for Denis Undav.

Another Stuttgart player! Albeit on loan from Brighton...


Germany 2-0 Hungary | 81 mins

18:40 , Marc Mayo

Chris Fuhrich tries to add his name to the scoresheet by going alone as he cuts inside from the left flank. There were plenty of targets for the cross but his shot goes off target.

Germany 2-0 Hungary | 77 mins

18:36 , Marc Mayo

Leroy Sane next to force a save and Hungary make two changes.

Zsolt Nagy replaces Milos Kerkez on the left wing-back spot and big striker Martin Adam is on for Bendeguz Bolla to join Barnabas Varga in attack. It was Varga who missed that big chance just before the second goal.


Germany 2-0 Hungary | 75 mins

18:33 , Marc Mayo

Germany look the more likely to score the next goal and Joshua Kimmich tests Peter Gulacsi.

Watch Ilkay Gundogan score Germany's second

18:31 , Marc Mayo

Great work by Jamal Musiala and Maximilian Mittelstadt in the build-up.

Germany 2-0 Hungary | 71 mins

18:31 , Marc Mayo

Emre Can and Chris Fuhrich enter the game for Robert Andrich, who’s a booking away from a ban, and Jamal Musiala.

Big cheer for Stuttgart player Fuhrich on his home ground.

Germany 2-0 Hungary | 69 mins

18:28 , Marc Mayo

Let’s see how Hungary come out after that blow, they’re staring elimination in the face here with zero points and a minus-four goal difference.

This game opening up could allow Germany a bit of space to grab another goal or two, as well, as Joshua Kimmich flashes a cross-shot wide.

GGGGOOOOAAALLL!!! Germany 2-0 Hungary | Gundogan, 67'

18:26 , Marc Mayo


Hungary fall asleep and the midfielder sweeps home a low cross.

Germany 1-0 Hungary | 65 mins

18:23 , Marc Mayo

Laszlo Kleinheisler of Hajduk Split replaces Adam Nagy in the Hungary midfield before a corner.

Nothing doing from the ball in.

Germany 1-0 Hungary | 63 mins

18:21 , Marc Mayo

Jamal Musiala is bringing pretty much all of the attacking threat for Germany.

A minor handball appeal forced by the Bayern Munich man is shrugged off by the referee before he has a go from range. Not far wide, but still wide.

Germany 1-0 Hungary | 60 mins

18:19 , Marc Mayo


Great work down the left to stand up a cross for Barnabas Varga... and he heads over! Had to score.

Germany 1-0 Hungary | 58 mins

18:17 , Marc Mayo

First changes of the day and Niclas Fullkrug replaces Kai Havertz. Leroy Sane on too, for Florian Wirtz, who hasn’t shone today.

Germany 1-0 Hungary | 55 mins

18:14 , Marc Mayo

Peter Gulacsi forced into action twice in quick succession. First a smart Ilkay Gundogan run and cross is parried clear before Toni Kroos hits one. Deflected, he palms the ball down before grabbing it.

Germany 1-0 Hungary | 53 mins

18:12 , Marc Mayo

Another Hungary breakaway led by Andras Schafer just doesn’t quite have the precision to lead to a shooting chance, the second such run by the midfielder which looked threatening but fizzled out.

Germany really need a second goal before they can feel comfortable.

Germany 1-0 Hungary | 49 mins

18:08 , Marc Mayo

Up the other end and Hungary have a corner, more good work by Milos Kerkez to join the attack. He’s had a fine game.

The cross is flicked away for what looked set to be a Hungarian throw, but the linesman gives it the other way.

Germany 1-0 Hungary | 47 mins

18:06 , Marc Mayo

Die Mannschaft back in control and they win a corner via Antonio Rudiger’s smack from range, deflected over.

Corner dealt with.


18:04 , Marc Mayo

Back to Stuttgart with Hungary sent out fairly early and Germany now having joined them.

No changes.

Watch Jamal Musiala go close to 2-0

18:01 , Marc Mayo

A carbon copy of Raheem Sterling’s ‘goal’ minutes into the start of the 2014 World Cup! If you know, you know...

Hope for Hungary

17:57 , Marc Mayo

This tournament has seen plenty of near-miss upsets and a couple of shocks actually pulled off, too.

Put this one firmly in the ‘maybe’ category for now as Hungary look decent in attack - they’ve had seven shots to Germany’s eight and both hit the target three times.

They aren’t over reliant on Dominik Szoboszlai either, although the Liverpool man has looked decent.

Germany well worth the lead

17:52 , Marc Mayo

It has been a solid display from Germany, controlling possession well and creating a few chances.

But they are vulnerable on the counter-attack and at set-pieces... and definitely need a second goal.

Jamal Musiala has been a real livewire and Kai Havertz also impressive.


17:48 , Marc Mayo

A scare right at the start and end for Germany but they lead via Jamal Musiala.

17:47 , Marc Mayo

Barnabas Varga wins a free-kick high on Hungary’s left wing, it’s a real soft one yet a late chance to load the box.

Dominik Szoboszlai’s ball in is flicked on and parried... the rebound turned home and the flag is up!

VAR confirms it.

Germany 1-0 Hungary | 45 mins

17:45 , Marc Mayo


Half the ground thought that was in! Jamal Musiala controls and shoots quickly from 18 yards and it hits the top corner... on the wrong side of the net.

We’re into added time. Two minutes.

Germany 1-0 Hungary | 43 mins

17:43 , Marc Mayo

Hungary aren’t necessarily clinging on here but they are firmly backs-against-the-wall with very little counters to speak of for a long stretch.

Germany probing for a second without a massive amount of urgency.

Germany 1-0 Hungary | 39 mins

17:40 , Marc Mayo

The sixth German corner of the day comes in from the left flank via Toni Kroos’ right boot... Barnabas Varga rises to head clear but ends up flicking it only narrowly wide of the far post!

Germany 1-0 Hungary | 37 mins

17:37 , Marc Mayo

A German corner is repelled but a neat Toni Kroos flick sends them forwards again and Bendeguz Bolla has to concede another corner.

The hosts are ramping up some pressure as the break nears.

Germany 1-0 Hungary | 32 mins

17:32 , Marc Mayo

We’ve got an intriguing game on our hands with Hungary far from out of it, although a second German goal would surely be curtains.

And the host nation are on the front foot, nearly finding Joshua Kimmich’s dart into the box.

Watch Jamal Musiala score for Germany

17:30 , Marc Mayo

Hungary looked to have dealt with the danger... then gifted Germany the ball back!

Germany 1-0 Hungary | 29 mins

17:29 , Marc Mayo

Another vital block, this time by Jonathan Tah, to deny Dominik Szoboszlai after a quick break down the left led by Milos Kerkez.

Szoboszlai furious at seeing that chance go begging!

The corner is cleared.

Germany 1-0 Hungary | 27 mins

17:27 , Marc Mayo

Antonio Rudiger looks baffled after being booked by Danny Makkelie. Again, appears to be dissent.

Ilkay Gundogan has a shot closed down after a long ball into the box.

Germany 1-0 Hungary | 26 mins

17:26 , Marc Mayo

Barnabas Varga picked up a booking in that, not sure why so likely protesting.

Hungary back up the other end and Milos Kerkez does well to win a free-kick in a good spot.

Dominik Szoboszlai over it and a superb hit is well saved by Manuel Neuer... and Hungary can’t turn the rebound over the line!


VAR check...

17:23 , Marc Mayo

They are having a look at Ilkay Gundogan bumping Willi Orban before the goal.

It’s given!

GGGOOOOAAALLLL!!! Germany 1-0 Hungary | Musiala, 22'

17:22 , Marc Mayo

Hungary want a foul but Jamal Musiala has scored his second of the tournament!

They made a right hash of clearing their lines and looked to have escaped danger before the ball squirted back to Ilkay Gundogan and he finds Musalia to slam home.

Germany 0-0 Hungary | 19 mins

17:19 , Marc Mayo

A gentle spell on the ball from Germany is sped up by Jamal Musiala darting goalwards. He finds Kai Havertz, who spins a ball to Ilkay Gundogan into the box... overhit. Goal kick.

Germany 0-0 Hungary | 15 mins

17:15 , Marc Mayo

Great block by Joshua Kimmich to deny Roland Sallai after Hungary puncture Germany’s left flank. A low cross is cut back and the shot is closed down.

Germany 0-0 Hungary | 13 mins

17:13 , Marc Mayo

Sustained German pressure here as Robert Andrich’s volley from Toni Kroos’ corner is headed out for another.

Kroos again, a bit too much on it though and Hungary clear.

The Magyars have been far better than Scotland so far but that’s a warning about giving Germany as much as an inch.

Germany 0-0 Hungary | 11 mins

17:11 , Marc Mayo


Long ball over the top and Kai Havertz causes Willie Orban all sorts of problems before firing a shot from close range... Peter Gulacsi’s strong palm turns it away and Germany settle for the corner.

Germany 0-0 Hungary | 7 mins

17:07 , Marc Mayo

Another decent opening for Hungary after their first corner, the ball being recycled deep to the far post and Bendeguz Bolla’s volley has to be deflected wide.

Jonathan Tah heads the next corner away.

Germany 0-0 Hungary | 6 mins

17:05 , Marc Mayo

First shot on target for Germany, Peter Gulacsi comfortably holds a dribbler from Kai Havertz after he cuts in on his left foot.

Replays show Roland Sallai did actually get a shot away when jousting with Manuel Neuer in the six-yard box inside the first 15 seconds. So one shot apiece early on.


Germany 0-0 Hungary | 3 mins

17:03 , Marc Mayo

After that rather creaky start from Die Mannschaft, they settle into some possession with Joshua Kimmich very high on the right flank and Toni Kroos dropping in to dictate from deep.

Hungary with a rigid bank of five behind a two-man central midfield and three forward pressers.

Kai Havertz is found in the box but well tackled.

Germany 0-0 Hungary | 1 min

17:01 , Marc Mayo

Nearly a Hungary goal inside 15 seconds!

A sloppy backpass is nearly snapped up by Roland Sallai and Manuel Neuer has to hack clear. Blimey.

Germany vs Hungary | Kick-off!

16:59 , Marc Mayo

Germany are in their changed purple and blue kit, Hungary in all white.

It’s the hosts who get the ball rolling!


Time for the national anthems

16:56 , Marc Mayo

We begin with Hungary’s ‘Himnusz’, a gentle number all told, before the hosts rise for ‘Deutschlandlied’. Not one you hear as often these days since Mercedes stopped winning F1 races.

The teams are out!

16:56 , Marc Mayo

Closing in on kick-off as Ilkay Gundogan and Dominik Szoboszlai lead the players out.

Hungarian flags waving in one end, a big German flag tifo at the other!

Man in the middle

16:50 , Marc Mayo

Dutch referee Danny Makkelie has the whistle today.

He’ll be a familiar name to regular viewers of the Champions League and the 41-year-old has been FIFA listed since 2011.

His CV includes the 2020 Europa League final and the semi-final between England and Denmark at Euro 2020. Makkelie has also worked on VAR for the 2018 World Cup final and 2019 Champions League final.

Superb atmosphere in Stuttgart

16:45 , Marc Mayo

We saw the Hungarian fan march earlier.

Thousands of supporters gathered at the Mittlerer Schlossgarten near the Stuttgart Arena for a specially choreographed display, organised by supporter group Carpathian Brigade '09. Fans chanted while holding banners, lit flares and smoke bombs as they slowly marched in unison to the stadium.

But there was also strong representation from the German fans, keen not to be outdone by their more eye-catching rivals.

Key match-ups

16:37 , Marc Mayo

Germany keeping a lid on Dominik Szoboszlai could go a long way to their victory in this game.

Robert Andrich and Joshua Kimmich will be key to stopping him down the left wing but the Liverpool man should float around the pitch with freedom. If Hungary can get Bournemouth wing-back Milos Kerkez bombing on and causing Kimmich issues, that will open up space for Szoboszlai.

Germany will hope to test 34-year-old centre-back Atilla Fiola, he usually plays on the right and plies his trade with Hungarian side Fehervar.

RB Leipzig’s Willi Orban will be used to this level of opposition but the same can’t be said for his defensive partners, with Fiola on one side and Marton Dardai on the other. He plays for German second-tier team Hertha Berlin.

Hungarian target man to let football do the talking

16:25 , Marc Mayo

A goal for Hungary striker Martin Adam would be the perfect response to negative online comments about his appearance, says Hungary boss Marco Rossi.

The 29-year-old came on late in Hungary's opening Euro 2024 Group A defeat by Switzerland, with many on social media highlighting the appearance of the long-bearded 6-feet-3-inch player, who weighs around 86 kilogrammes. Many were jovial and positive, but naturally some took it too far.

Adam, nicknamed the ‘Hungarian Viking’, said he usually laughs off comments about his build, but his manager Rossi said personal attacks were unacceptable.

“We see the pictures or photographs, the idiots at the keyboard... bravely at their computer - as long as it's that, it's acceptable because we cannot control the minds of these people," he stated.

"But when online people offend the players, well that’s unacceptable. That's disrespectful.

"So it’s very unpleasant what happened to him. His body, build is what it is since his birth, so I truly hope he will score at this European Championship. That would be very rewarding and satisfying for him.

"But I think he was unaffected because he's an exceptional lad and we are very happy to have him with us."

A big game to follow

16:20 , Marc Mayo

It has been some start to Euro 2024 and the drama kept coming in the early kick-off.

Croatia fell behind early on against Albania but looked to have snatched three vital points with a late Andrej Kramaric goal followed up a minute later by an unlucky Klaus Gjasula own goal.

And yet, Gjasula made amends in the 95th minute to make it 2-2 and leave both sides with a point.

How can our game top that?!

'Pressure on Hungary'

16:15 , Marc Mayo

Hungary will be under greater pressure with the threat of elimination hanging over them than hosts Germany when they face each other in their Euro 2024 Group A match on Wednesday, Germany coach Julian Nagelsmann has claimed.

"I had put Scotland and Hungary on a very similar level," Nagelsmann told a press conference. "It depends how we play tomorrow. Hungary are under a bit more pressure than we are after the first match."

"I think they have to be a bit more aggressive than against Switzerland as they could potentially be out of the tournament."

He added: "We have analysed the Hungarians and have a clear idea how we will play. It is about winning the game tomorrow. We saw their first match against Swiss where it was a game of two halves. Hungary deserved more than they got in the end.

"In the qualifiers Hungary were the second-best team when it came to creating or converting chances from set pieces.

"They play a good transition game. They have strikers who are powerful in the air. They play with precise crosses. They are very dangerous."

Two changes for Hungary

16:11 , Marc Mayo

Rapid Vienna’s Bendeguz Bolla comes in at right wing-back with Attila Fiola moved to the centre of defence and Marton Dardai introduced.Out go Adam Lang and Atilla Szalai.

Unchanged from Julian Nagelsmann

16:00 , Marc Mayo

As expected, the same Germany line-up which started against Scotland gets the nod this evening.

Hungary must be perfect, says coach

15:45 , Marc Mayo

Hungary will need to play a perfect game to get at least a point against Euro 2024 hosts Germany as they seek to make amends for the way they lost to Switzerland in their Group A opener, coach Marco Rossi said ahead of the game.

The Italian said it was the first time in four years that he was ashamed of his players after a complacent Hungary were two goals down to the Swiss by half-time on Saturday, eventually losing 3-1.

However, Rossi insisted that his team were determined to put in the kind of performance on Wednesday that would restore pride and keep their last-16 hopes alive ahead of a final group game against Scotland.

“We've paid for these [mistakes] in the first game and tomorrow we are playing Germany which, in my opinion, is the toughest rival, toughest team to play now, but we will do our best," Rossi told a press conference.

“We know on paper the German team is better than us. This should further motivate us, allowing us to give our very best show.

“Hopefully we can grasp a point tomorrow and that will allow us, I hope, to qualify for the next round. But this will call for the perfect match, all those playing must give 100 per cent.”

Hungary are joint bottom of Group A with Scotland on zero points, ahead of the Scots only on goal difference, so they need a positive result if they are to reach the knockout stage for the first time since Euro 2016.

“We seek some sort of comeback. Because for the first time in four years, since November 2020, I was ashamed of my team after the first half,” he added. “But inevitably the first half affected the final outcome. And I and my players have this sensation right now that we really want to show what we are truly worth.”

Huge turnaround in the early game

15:40 , Marc Mayo

Croatia have struck twice in quick succession and now lead Albania late on in Hamburg!

Andrej Kramaric netted the leveller with a smart near-post finish before an own goal from Klaus Gjasula put the Croats ahead.

Fans bring the colour to Stuttgart

15:30 , Marc Mayo

Away from the black-shirted ultras on a pre-game march, there is plenty of colour about the supporters as they head into Stuttgart Arena.

We’ll have a packed 55,000-capacity crowd in situ for this afternoon’s match.


Rewind: West Germany down Hungary to win World Cup

15:22 , Marc Mayo

Way back in 1954, these two teams met in the ‘Miracle of Bern’ as West Germany battled back from being two goals down inside eight minutes to win the World Cup final.

This was the legendary Hungarian team of Ferenc Puskas yet Helmet Rahn’s double completed the turnaround in the 84th minute.

Hungary had 16 shots on target that day and still lost! However, they’re unbeaten against the Germans in competitive matches ever since...

Head-to-head record

15:17 , Marc Mayo

Hungary are unbeaten in their last three games against Germany and last lost a competitive meeting to them in the 1954 World Cup final.

15:00 , Marc Mayo

We have two hours to go until kick-off in Stuttgart.

Team news should drop at 4pm at the latest, but expect it a bit in advance of then.

Hungarian fans were out in their numbers earlier on with a parade to the stadium.

Score prediction

14:50 , Marc Mayo

Julian Nagelsmann’s side will definitely head into the game as stern favourites, having thrashed Scotland and as the hosts.

The Hungarians are a well-organised side and took four points from a possible six off Germany during June 2022’s Nations League double-header, but anything other than a Germany win this time out would be an almighty shock.

Germany to win, 1-0.


How we reckon Hungary will set up

14:42 , Marc Mayo

Predicted Hungary XI: Gulacsi; Lang, Orban, Szalai; Bolla, A. Nagy, Schafer, Kerkez; Sallai, Szoboszlai, Varga

Hungary team news

14:36 , Marc Mayo

Hungary played a 5-2-2-1 formation against Switzerland and are likely to use that again, opting for a back five to limit the attacking spaces for Germany to exploit.

Marco Rossi was distinctly unimpressed by his team’s display and could be tempted to make changes for what looks like a very tough assignment indeed against the Germans.

Rapid Vienna’s Bendeguz Bolla is among those who could come in if Hungary opt for a more defensive approach in a bid to try and contain the rampant hosts.

Our prediction for the German line-up

14:32 , Marc Mayo

Predicted Germany XI: Neuer; Kimmich, Rudiger, Tah, Mittelstadt; Andrich, Kroos; Musiala, Gundogan, Wirtz; Havertz

Germany team news

14:26 , Marc Mayo

Germany are likely to persist with their front three of Jamal Musiala and Florian Wirtz flanking Arsenal striker Kai Havertz, all of whom scored against Scotland in the 5-1 win on Friday night.

There are no reported injury worries for the hosts, who should be unchanged.

Early goal in today's early Euros game

14:20 , Marc Mayo

Albania and Croatia are facing off in the 2pm kick-off and we have an early goal.

Qazim Laci has headed the Albanians ahead and once again they are eyeing a major upset.

TV channel: In the UK, the game will be televised live on BBC One, with coverage beginning at 4.30pm BST for a 5pm kick-off.

Germany vs Hungary LIVE!

14:01 , Marc Mayo

The host nation put in arguably the best performance of the opening round of games as they smashed Scotland and are strongly tipped to grab another three points here today against an unfancied Hungary team.

Despite a defeat to Switzerland to begin their tournament, the Magyars are capable of springing a surprise.

Kick-off from Stuttgart Arena comes at 5pm BST.
