Austria vs North Macedonia Match Preview
Austria host North Macedonia for their EURO 2020 Qualifiers clash as they look to punch their ticket to the final tournament, now sitting 2nd and four points in clear with two games to play. They’ve been in great shape and have a lot to build on here, as Franco Foda’s men boast a six-match unbeaten streak since June.
Das Team beat Slovenia (1-0), North Macedonia (1-4), Latvia (6-0), Israel (3-1), and Slovenia on the road (0-1) in the process, only held off in Poland (0-0) along the way. They’ve now all but secured a top 2 spot and we’ll surely see them very motivated to retain such consistency late on.
North Macedonia have, on the other hand, seen a more disappointing October as they beat Slovenia (2-1) in front of the home fans but failed to cause an upset in Poland (2-0), where late goals from Frankowski and Milik proved enough for Igor Angelovski’s men to drop all three points.
Red Lynxes beat Latvia (0-2) and Slovenia (2-1) beforehand but it’s fair to say causing an upset in Wien will be nowhere near an easy task, which will make bouncing to the winning ways when it matters the most a tough quest despite an outfit very motivated to impress at Ernst-Happel-Stadion.
We do feel we’re in for a tough challenge but we expect Austria will have what it takes to turn a rather narrow and less exciting contest their way this time around too, as we stick our necks out for a Home win & Under 2.5 Goals FT at 13/5 with Paddy Power.
With that in mind, Austria should base their success on a tough defensive display before anything else. They have kept five clean sheets in the last seven home outings and we’re now backing them to another on Saturday, which comes at 4/5 with William Hill.
