Hungary vs France

Hungary came agonisingly close to earning an unexpected point against Portugal but a packed Puskas Arena were left disappointed as the home side fell apart in the closing stages. It took a cruel deflection for Raphael Guerreiro to open the scoring but once the first goal came another two soon followed.

It was an admirable defensive performance from Hungary but you get the feeling the problems were of Portugal’s own making. Fernando Santos opted to play Danilo Pereira and William Carvalho – two very conservative players – in his midfield pivot and they offered very little support to their star attackers.

Hungary win

Portugal vs Germany

Portugal left it late to break down a stubborn Hungary side in Budapest on Tuesday but once the floodgates were open the goals started flowing, although the 3-0 scoreline flatters the defending champions somewhat.

Fernando Santos was the manufacturer of his own problems in that game as they fielded a conservative midfield pivot of William Carvalho and Danilo Pereira which offered very little going forward. Renato Sanches’ introduction changed the outlook of the game, but if history is anything to go by we can expect Santos to revert to his defensive ways as they visit Munich on Saturday.

Both teams to score
