Austria vs Hungary by Rahul

Austria come into their first game of Euro2016 with a mixed bag of form in the friendly games coming into this tournament. They have won 2 (Malta & Albania) while losing 3 (Netherlands, Turkey and Switzerland) in that duration showcasing the inconsistencies that they face. They played well in qualifying remaining one of the few unbeaten teams going through Russia, Sweden and Montenegro. Their goal scoring exploits will rely on Marko Jako and Marko Arnautovic, other than that they will rely on a lot of midfielders to make runs to score including Martin Harnik, David Alaba, Julian Baumgartlinger and Zlatko Junuzovic. Defensively they have shown to be strong in their qualifying conceding just 5 goals in their 9 games and will rely a lot on captain Martin Fuchs and Sebastian Prodl as the experienced heads to keep things calm at the back.


Hungary qualified to Euro2016 by coming 3rd in a group that saw Northern Ireland and Romania qualify ahead of them. They had to squeeze through against Norway in the playoffs and have failed to win any of their 3 friendly games since qualifying. Their biggest problem will be offensively, as was witnessed in their last friendly game against Germany, where they managed just 1 shot on target, even Ukraine managed more. They will rely a lot on Szalai, Priskin and Gera as 3 experienced heads with a lot of goals behind them, to help them in this encounter. Defensively they have been shipping goals in 6 out of their last 8 games in all competitions, which does not speak well about them only Ronald Juhasz has got experience with over 90 caps. Not to mention that none of their defenders plays at a higher level outside Hungary and Poland.


Austria will be aiming to put in a strong performance in this one from a group that they should get out of, considering they went undefeated in qualifying. I think Austria will beat Hungary and will have too much quality for them.
