World champions France are rightly considered to be amongst the best teams on the planet, and it’s little wonder they are so favoured by the bookmakers in the Hungary vs France betting odds at 1.48, with their opponents priced at 7.2.
After all, Group F of Euro 2021 – which also features Germany and defending champions Portugal – is rightly considered to be the tournament’s ‘group of death’, and so the French will not be taking this game on June 19 lightly. They know that nothing less than victory will do.
For Hungary, this is a fantastic opportunity to strut their stuff on the major stage – a rarity indeed for this former powerhouse of European football – and the fact that this game will take place in Budapest at least gives them something of an edge.
But really….can home advantage transform their pretty ordinary players into a team capable of downing the world champions?
That’s just one of the questions we aim to explore in this Hungary vs France preview, and in the end we will have a selection of betting tips for you to enjoy and maybe back yourself.
The reality is that this game is all about France – if they turn up and play their best, our Hungary vs France betting picks basically pick themselves.
Just imagine being in the shoes of Didier Deschamps, and knowing that you could call upon the services of Kylian Mbappe, Antoine Griezmann, Paul Pogba and Ousmane Dembele, to name just a few!
Believe it or not, the French are getting even stronger. Dayot Upamecano is coming through the ranks as a top-class defender, Kingsley Coman is an exciting wide man while Tanguy Ndombele has impressed many in the Premier League with his all-action displays.
Having won eight of their ten qualification matches for this tournament, and having lost just one of their last eleven games, we have to wish Hungary luck in defeating this all-conquering French side.

Based on what we saw from the Hungarians in qualifying, it’s hard to make any Hungary vs France predictions that offer a positive outcome for the underdogs.They have a couple of known players such as Willi Orban and Peter Gulacsi, who are part of an excellent RB Leipzig side, but given that they are defensive players it’s clear where the Hungarians emphasis will lie.
Thanks to the quirks of the qualification system, Hungary made it to the play-offs despite only finishing fourth in their group – another sign that they might be out of their depth, given that in other years they wouldn’t have even had that opportunity.
That said, they showed their abilities in beating the likes of Bulgaria and Iceland in those elimination games, even if defeats to Croatia, Wales and Slovakia made their weaknesses abundantly clear.
All told, the Hungarians only kept two clean sheets in the eight qualifiers they played, and find themselves at Euro 2021 despite ending qualification with a negative goal difference. Clearly, our Hungary vs France betting tips have to reflect that fact.
