The 2022/23 Uefa Nations League has been a strange old tournament, with Euro 2020 finalists Italy and England occupying the bottom two spots in Group A3 and likely to do battle to avoid relegation. Hungary are currently top of Group A3 with two matches left to play with two wins, one draw and a defeat in their opening four games.
Both of Hungary’s victories have come against England, a 1-0 win in Budapest and a 4-0 thrashing at Molineux, to put the rest of the group on alert. In between those two victories Hungary did taste defeat against Italy and then draw with Germany, but they remain in control of their destiny. Victory over Germany would leave Hungary needing a point in their final match with Italy, providing England don’t take points off the European champions.
For Germany it is also pretty simple. Win their final two games and they will qualify for the semi-finals of the Nations League. Hansi Flick’s side are currently second, one point behind Hungary, and the only team still unbeaten in Group A3. The problem is that they have had too many draws.
Die Mannschaft drew with Italy in their opening game and then dropped more points against England, conceding an equaliser from a late penalty. Another draw followed in the third match, the 1-1 with Hungary when both goals were scored in the opening 10 matches. But last time out Germany did get their first victory with a 5-2 victory over Italy which saw them go 5-0 up before taking their foot off the pedal.

Germany vs Hungary match stats
Whatever happens this will be a thriller, with both Germany and Hungary in fine form in June. Both teams have found the net in the past two meetings between these sides, as Hungary have slowly lifted themselves up following a period of low quality.
Bayern Munich haven’t been great in the Bundesliga of late but Jamal Musiala has been shining. That’s not solely because Bayern’s other players haven’t been great either, as Musiala also thrived in the opening matches, scoring four goals in six Bundesliga matches so far.

6 June 2004 – Germany 0-2 Hungary – Friendly
Germany are unbeaten in their past four matches against Hungary since a 2-0 defeat in a friendly in 2004. Die Mannschaft also haven’t lost in this fixture in a competitive meeting since an 8-3 trashing in the group stage of the 1954 World Cup (not that there have been many) – though Germany would get their revenge winning the tournament by beating Hungary in the final.
