14:00 Saturday

Hungary and Switzerland kick off their Euro 2024 campaign when they head to the RheinEnergieStadion in Koln this afternoon in this Group A fixture.

Hungary vs Switzerland Prediction

Hungary get their group stage campaign underway when they face off against Switzerland on Saturday afternoon. Having gone through qualification unbeaten, the Magyars are tournament dark horses to some.

However, it's impossible to discount Switzerland, who so often show up for tournament football. Murat Yakin's side may have struggled in their qualification campaign but there is plenty of top-flight experience within the squad.

Neither side can afford to lose their Group A opener, so a nervy meeting in Cologne is possible.

Score prediction: Hungary 1-1 Switzerland (11/2 at bet365)
