David Alaba vs Adam Szalai


Arguably the best young defender in the world, David Alaba will be entrusted with the responsibility of marshaling the Austrian defense in Euro 2016. Classy and ever dependable, Alaba will try to nullify Hungary’s main goal threat in Adam Szalai.


Alaba to win this one.

Marco Arnautovic vs Balasz Dzsudzsak

Marco Arnautovic has built himself a good reputation during his time at Stoke City. A powerful presence with a good eye for goal, Arnautovic will be one of the biggest threats for the Hungarian team. Dzsudzsak will be looking to stop him from gaining control in midfield.


Arnautovic should shade it.

Marc Janko vs Roland Juhasz

FC Basel striker Marc Janko will be looking to score the goals for this Austrian team. His experience playing at the highest level in the Champions League should come in handy for a team that does not have much experience. Roland is an accomplished defender who will be charge of stopping any such goal threats.


Tough to call.

Christian Fuchs vs Krisztian Nemeth


Fresh off winning the Premier League, Christian Fuchs is expected to be one of the leaders for this Austrian team. Strong, clam and composed Fuchs will be tasked with controlling the likes of Nemeth and company from breaching the Austrian defense.

Nemeth Cropped 1

Fuchs to get this one.

Zlatko Junuzovic vs Zoltan Gera


The imposing Werder Bremen strike, Zlatko has slowly turned into one of the most reliable sources of goals for this Austrian team. Possessing a mean shot and good at set pieces, he will be a major threat from his team. Zoltan Gera is an experienced player who will ensure that this does not happen.


Very Even.
