Germany take on Hungary at the Allianz Arena tonight (Wednesday) in Group F in UEFA Euro 2020.
A win will be enough to see them through nonetheless, as one of the top four third-placed teams whereas Joachim Loew’s simply need a win and hope Portugal and France play out a draw.
Unlike France and Portugal, Die Mannschaft won’t have to play at the Puskas Arena in front of 67,000 Hungarian fans cheering for the hosts, creating an electric atmosphere that has been one of the highlights of the tournament.
Instead, Germany will welcome the Magyarorszag to the Allianz Arena, although the stadium has already proven to be a subject of discussion heading into this affair.
The Munich authority were insistent on lighting up the stadium with rainbow colours in solidarity with the LGBTQ community, while also in response to the Hungarian government’s anti-LGBT laws.
UEFA, though, has blocked the authority from taking such a decision, citing political motives.
Allianz Arena, instead, will be lit up with the German and Hungarian colours in addition to the European Football’s governing body that is conducting the tournament.
