Can Marco Rosssi cope up without Dominik Szoboszlai?

Dominik Szoboszlai was one of the key players for Hungary ahead of Euro 2020. However, the player is ruled out because of injury and this will put pressure on the likes of Adama Szalai and Nemanja Nikolic in the upfront. However, the RB Leipzig duo of Peter Gulasci and Willi Orban will be key players for Marco Rosssi.

Willi Orban had a great season with RB Leipzig in Bundesliga after the club finished second in the German top-flight. In 29 games, not only he was a solid centre-back, he scored four goals for his side. He blocked 48 shots and intercepted 35 passes throughout the campaign. Peter Gulasci conceded just 30 goals throughout the campaign in Bundesliga. He also had 15 cleansheets in the German top-flight.
