Hungary vs Switzerland live: Euro 2024 Result and final score

Allianz Arena erupts as Germany score first goal of Euro 2024

Switzerland edged out Hungary to secure the ideal start to Euro 2024 in Group A with a 3-1 victory. They join Germany at the top of the group after the hosts thrashed Scotland 5-1 in the tournament opener last night.

And goals from Kwadwo Duah and Michel Aebischer has the Swiss in control at the break. But after Dominik Szoboszlai set up Barnabas Varga to halve the deficit, Switzerland were left hanging on. But Breel Embolo, returning from an injury-hit season, settled the contest with a delightful, chipped finish.

Earlier, Duah opened the scoring in just his second game for Switzerland, shooting low past goalkeeper Peter Gulacsi off a pass from Aebischer. Aebischer made it 2-0 just before halftime, sidestepping away from Attila Fiola to find space on the edge of the box to hit a curling low shot past Gulacsi.

Varga’s diving header in the 66th off Dominik Szoboszlai’s cross brought celebrations for Hungary as some of its black T-shirt-wearing hardcore fans lit flares. Hungary kept Switzerland under pressure after that but couldn’t find a second goal. Switzerland is second in Group A after host nation Germany beat Scotland 5-1 on Friday in the tournament opener. Hungary had its first loss in a competitive game since September 2022.

Albania’s form

While many will be expecting a straightforward win for Italy tonight, Albania will put up a fight, backed by a fervent support.

They qualified top of their group, above the Czech Republic and Poland, and have several players who play in Serie A – such as Atalanta defender Djimsiti, Inter Milan midfielder Asslani and Sassuolo midfielder Nedim Bajrami – as well as on-loan Chelsea striker Armando Broja.

They have won two, lost two and drawn one of their last five games, including wins against Azerbaijan and Liechtenstein in warm-up games.

Tonight will be the fifth time Italy and Albania have met on the international stage, including twice in the qualifying campaign for the 2018 World Cup. Italy have won all four previous meetings.

The first meeting came in a friendly in 2014, with the Italians winning 1-0. Italy won 2-0 at home and 1-0 away in the 2017 qualifying campaign, and won again in another friendly in 2022, with Grifo and Di Lorenzo (2) getting the goals in a 3-1 win.
