Austria vs Slovenia Match Preview
Austria host Slovenia for their EURO 2020 Qualifiers clash on Friday evening looking for their first points in Group G, after seeing a narrow 0-1 home loss to Poland and a thrashing 4-2 loss in Israel as a brace from Marko Arnautovic proved insufficient at Sammy Ofer Stadium.
Das Team have thus seen a disappointing start of their campaign and putting it behind them will be crucial for their ambitions to make the top 2 cut, already six points behind pace-setters Poland and four behind 2nd placed Israel. Franco Foda has to find a quick fix and we do see them finally bouncing back to the winning ways.
Slovenia have been quite unpredictable and we’ve seen an underwhelming Nations League C campaign, where they finished rock-bottomed in a group shared with Norway, Bulgaria, and Cyprus. They’ve extended their streak of draws with points earned against Israel (1-1) and Macedonia (1-1), though, which will make points here just as important.
Matjaz Kek’s men have proven themselves tough to beat but still saw slip-ups at the back, which saw them concede second-half equalizer on both occasions. They will want more at Worthersee Stadion but getting it should prove an even tougher task, despite Austria’s struggles to keep it together at the back.
We will thus back Austria to outgun the rivals and bag the all-important points on Friday, going for a Home win at 7/10 with bet365 and hoping to see them in good shape in the final third – led by West Ham’s Marko Arnautovic who found the net three times in last two appearances in Premier League.
With that in mind, we’re now also going for a high-scoring contest in Klagenfurt and backing Over 2.5 Goals FT at 5/4 with Paddy Power, which seems great value for those keeping faith we’ll see a winner on the day.
