Austria vs. North Macedonia will be the opener for Group C this Sunday. Being in a group with Netherland and Ukraine will be a hard challenge for both teams to find a place in the top 16 of Euro 2020. Both for Macedonia and Austria, the goal is to qualify as the best of third places. For Austria, this is the third time being part of the European Championship, but they still haven’t won any matches yet (D4, L2). In Euro qualifiers, Austria qualified in 2nd place (after Poland) with 19 pts in 10 matches (W6, D1, L3). It’s interesting that in this Group, Austria left behind with 14 pts, North Macedonia.
On the other hand, North Macedonia qualified in Euro 2020 thanks to the Nations League (they beat Georgia in playoffs final 0-1). It’s their first appearance in such a major competition, so they have to enjoy every game. Compared with other teams in this competition, North Macedonia has the weakest ranking (#62). However, the latest performance of Igor Angelovski’s team, wherein the last five games won 3, drawn 1, and lost 1, seems to be promising to rival the Austrians, who haven’t scored in their last three games.
For the first time, both teams faced in Euro 2020 qualifiers as they were in the same group. The two matches played finished in favor of Austria with results 2-1 and 1-4. In both games, both teams scored a first-half goal and a late goal after the 75th minute.
