Austria gave their qualification hopes a massive boost as they beat Israel on Thursday. That moved them up into the top two with Slovenia taking a surprise hit against North Macedonia. So now it leaves Slovenia needing to get themselves a win in this one to try and jump ahead of Austria in a fantastic group. Read our Slovenia v Austria betting tips for more.

Slovenia’s qualification hopes took a massive hit on Thursday as they suffered a 2-1 loss in Skopje against North Macedonia. That was the last thing they needed and they only got their consolation through a 95th-minute penalty kick. So that leaves them trailing second-placed Austria by two points now, so a loss in this one would just kick them out of qualification contention.
Slovenia are W3 D2 L2 in their seven qualification games so far, averaging almost two goals per game, so it’s not been bad from them. A win puts them right back in the mix, while a draw would keep them hanging in there. Slovenia are unbeaten in their last five home games and they did claim a superb 2-0 home win over group leaders Poland earlier in the campaign. They have netted at least two goals in their last two home fixtures.
Austria have won the last two meetings to nil
This will be the fourth meeting between the two nations
Both teams have scored in none of the previous three
Austria are W2 L1 in the head to head
Austria’s 3-1 home success over Israel on Thursday was just what they needed to take a big step towards qualification. Three points in this one and they should be just about there. They are now on a five-match undefeated streak of form in the qualification group (W4 D1) after their slow start of losing both of their first two games, which were against Poland and Israel. The dramatic change has been their defensive output.
Austria have three clean sheets in their last five qualification games, conceding just two goals in that sequence. Austria have a good record going in away qualifiers for the Euro’s, having won six of their last eight such fixtures (D1 L1). Their goal output has been superb as well in such fixtures, having scored at least two goals in six of those eight games in the sequence.
Austria are the better of the two sides, but Slovenia are likely to put up a good fight in this one. This is a high-pressure game and it’s probably worth expecting it to be a low-scoring affair, but the extra quality of Austria should prevail.

Group C action brings Austria and Israel together on Thursday. Five of the six teams in the group, including these two, still have a shot at qualification for Euro 2020. Austria starts in third place in the table, two points above Israel. It’s a big game for both. Read our Austria v Israel betting tips for more.
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on October 9th, 2019 at 3:20 p.m.)
Austria trail group leaders Poland by three points and also have Slovenia head of them in the table. So they have some work to do and a W3 D1 L2 record has gotten them this far. Back in March this year Austria lost 4-2 in Israel, despite opening the scoring in the fixture. After failing to get a win in their first two qualifiers, Austria picked it up by winning three of their next four. Their last fixture saw them earn a good away point in Poland.
Austria’s defence has sharpened up with them having earned three clean sheets in their last four qualifiers. They have a good home record behind them in European Championship qualifiers as well. Austria are W6 D1 L1 in their last eight home qualifier matches. Each of the six wins in that sequence were with a clean sheet as well. As a betting trend for Austria v Israel, four of Austria’s last six European Championship home qualifiers they have won by a 1-0 scoreline.
Israel are W2 D1 in their last three European Championship qualifiers against Austria
Austria have won only one of their last six against Israel
Both teams have scored in all but one of the last seven meetings
Austria are W4 D4 L2 in the overall head to head with Israel
Three points would be massive for Israel in this one, while defeat would leave them a mountain too big to climb to reach next summer’s finals. Israel went undefeated in their first three qualifiers, but defeats against Poland and Slovenia combined with a poor draw against Macedonia set them back. A point in the long run probably isn’t going to be enough for Israel, but it would maintain their head to head tie-breaker advantage over the Austrians.
The problem for Israel is their lack of form away from home in European Championship qualifiers. They have only gone W1 D1 L4 in their last six such fixtures. Each of their last four away qualifiers have gone over 2.5 goals as has seven of their last eight, so that could be a big betting trend. The 4-2 win at home that they took over Austria was fantastic, with Eran Zahavi netting a hattrick. They need a very special away night here.
Austria should have the quality at home to collect three points. It doesn’t matter at this point how they come, they just need to get them. Israel are capable of proving themselves a stubborn opponent, but they aren’t great away from home as shown in their group stage thumping in Poland.

Poland lost a little bit of ground in Group G on Friday as they suffered a loss against Slovenia in a surprising result. They are still sitting on top of the pile through, but with Austria producing a big win on the night, the Austrians have now closed the gap on the leaders to just three points. So that has raised the stakes a bit in this competitive group. Read our Poland v Austria betting tips for more.
Poland even money
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on September 7th, 2019 at 5:17 p.m.)
After winning their opening four games of Group G, Poland took a surprise tumble in Friday night’s qualification action. They paid a visit to Slovenia and suffered a 2-0 defeat. That leaves them with a three-point lead now over Monday’s opponents Austria. That has added just a little bit of extra pressure on this game for Poland.
The goals against Slovenia were the first that Poland had conceded in the group as well. At home, so far in this qualification group Poland have taken a 2-0 win over Latvia and a 4-0 win over Israel. It is a five-match winning streak at home in European Championship qualifiers that Poland are currently on. They arebsuch fixtures now, winning eleven of those.
Robert Lewandowski is the first goalscorer favourite in this one at a quote of 3/1* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on September 7th, 2019 at 5:17 p.m.). He has produced only two goals in this campaign though for his country. Poland have scored at least two goals in each of their last nine European Championship home qualifiers. The form is there, it would be a giant step towards a qualification in they win this one.
Austria lost the first group meeting 1-0
Poland are W5 D1 L3 in the head to head against Austria
All but two of the previous nine meetings have gone over 2.5 goals
Both teams have scored in six of the last seven meetings
Austria were rampant on Friday night as they posted a 6-0 home win over Latvia. That moves them on to a three-match winning streak in the qualification group now. They have rattled off ten goals in their last two games. If they could go and get an away win here then that would strengthen their position greatly in the group.
It’s not only a matter of trying to reel in leaders Poland, but Austria have Slovenia and Israel both just sitting one point behind them. So there’s no margin for error here. In their last five competitive away games, Austria have taken a W3 L2 record. None of the contenders in Group G of Euro 2020 qualifying won their Nations League group.
So that means none of them have a backup plan of a qualification play-off spot if things don’t go to plan in this group. When it comes to Austria’s form specifically in European Championship qualifying away games, they are W6 L1 in their last seven. The one defeat in that sequence happened in their first road game of this campaign, a 4-2 reverse in Israel. Each of Austria’s last four games in qualifiers have gone over 4.5 goals.
It was a bad night for Poland away from home on Friday, but they should be stronger back on home soil. Austria’s slip in Israel at the start of this qualification group will raise a few questions. Poland should just have enough to bag the win in a high-scoring game.

North Macedonia are in the qualification picture in this one. They will go into this big fixture on Monday three points outside of the top two in Group G. The top two are playing each other on Monday as well. So this is a big chance for North Macedonia to make up some ground. Austria start a point back of Macedonia. Read our Macedonia v Austria betting tips for more.
North Macedonia 3/1
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on June 9th, 2019 at 6:50 p.m.)
Macedonia suffered a loss against Poland in their last fixture, a Euro 2020 meeting on Friday. That is just their second defeat in their last nine games though, having taken a win in six of the games in that sequence. Macedonia are starting the game in third place in Group G, three points behind second-placed Israel. Israel are playing leaders Poland on the same day. Macedonia then are W1 D1 L1 in their three qualifiers so far, their points coming in a 1-0 home win over Slovenia and an away draw against them.
North Macedonia have scored in four of their last five games, but they have taken just one clean sheet in their last seven played. Their home form is worth noting because they had taken a victory in four of their last five home games, although three of those were against weaker opposition in the Nations League than they will be facing in the form of Austria. Macedonia have scored at least two goals in four of their last five home fixtures.
This will be the first competitive meeting between the two teams
Austria have not gotten their Euro 2020 qualification campaign really up and running yet. They suffered back to back defeats in their opening games. The first was at home against Poland and then a pretty big 4-2 away loss in Israel. They did steady the ship a bit with a 1-0 home win over Slovenia on Friday. So that leaves them in fourth place in the table ahead of the next round of action, trailing North Macedonia by one point.
Basically whoever wins this is going to be sitting a lot more favourably in the group, particularly if Israel lose against Poland. Austria are W4 D1 L4 in their last nine games so they are a bit hit and miss to stay the least. In the Nations League they finished sandwiched between Bosnia and Herzegovina and Northern Ireland, taking a W2 D1 L1 record from those games. Austria went W1 L1 on their travels in the group. They will be a bit concerned about their away form having lost three of their last four on the road, failing to keep a clean sheet in that sequence
The pressure is going to be on Austria for this one, but this is a tricky game for them. Their away form isn’t particularly great and their big defeat in Israel will have hurt them badly. You can see them being relatively happy with avoiding defeat in this one. Draw.

Austria and Poland square up in Euro 2020 qualifying Group G and it is expected that they are the two who are going to take the automatic qualification spots as well. So this game is going to be about who can open up an early advantage. Read our Austria v Poland betting tips for more.
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on March 18th, 2019 at 6:26 p.m.)
It has been over a decade since Austria and Poland met. The last time they were together was in the Euro 2008 Championships. They played out a 1-1 draw in the group stage on that occasion. The head-to-head is pretty tight between them with Austria holding a W3 D1 L4 record against Poland. It has been hard to get a read on Austria who have mixed form of W3 D1 L3 in their last seven internationals. But they do have a nice bit of home form going with them having remained undefeated in their last three at home, taking wins over Sweden and Northern Ireland in that sequence.
All but one of Austria’s last six games have gone under 2.5 goals. Austria have not conceded a goal in their last three home fixtures and in the Nations League, they shut out Bosnia and Herzegovina and Northern Ireland. Looking back at the World Cup 2018 qualification campaign, Austria fell surprisingly short in the group where they should have been far more competitive. A good strong start on home soil here well set them nicely on the right path to Euro 2020.
Much like Austria, Poland are in inconsistent form at the moment. They have failed to win any of their last six played, losing three. Their last game was a 1-1 draw against Portugal in the Nations League. It just hasn’t quite been happening for Poland and they have lost a bit of their scoring edge as well. Poland have only scored one goal in their last three games in total which is surprising given the attacking talent of Arkadiusz Milik and Robert Lewandowski.
Poland only collected two points from their four games against Italy and Portugal in last year’s Nations League, drawing both of their away games 1-1. In their World Cup 2018 qualification group Poland comfortably won their section. However, at the tournament itself, there were clear signs that something was not quite right as they limped out after finishing bottom of their group, looking a bit lost in their approach to their games.
So you have two sides here who both need a boost and a bit of a lift in form. Home advantage should be sided with in this one as Austria do have a good bit of current home form going for themselves. This is likely to be tight but Austria to win at 5/4 odds does have appeal* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on March 18th, 2019 at 6:26 p.m.)

B3 of the Nations League has drawn to a bit of anticlimax. Austria picked up a draw against group leaders Bosnia and Herzegovina on Saturday night and that means the places are settled. Unfortunately for Northern Ireland that means bottom spot for them and relegation after having lost their opening three games. Can they sign off in style with a home win though? Read our Northern Ireland v Austria betting tips for more.
Austria even money
Northern Ireland 12/5
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on November 15th, 2018 at 1.12 p.m.)
Northern Ireland’s hopes of surviving in the second tier of the Nations league have come to an end. They have already been relegated from their group after Austria got a point against Bosnia and Herzegovina on Thursday. What that has done at least has taken any pressure off them for this game. So maybe they can turn that into a positive and get a result. Northern Ireland have not scored in their last three games though and both teams have scored in just one of their last five games. Both teams not to score is at 8/11 odds* (betting odds taken on November 16th, 2018 at 4:29 pm).
It’s hard not to expect a low-scoring game coming up. Over the last five games, Northern Ireland are W1 L1 L3 so are out of form and in their last dozen fixtures, they have collected just the two wins (D3 L7). The Irish have failed to net in their last two games against Austria. Under 2.5 goals is at 8/13 odds* (betting odds taken on November 16th, 2018 at 4:29 pm). Northern Ireland played out a 0-0 draw with Ireland in midweek as a warm-up for this one.
This will be the fifth meeting between the two nations
Austria are W2 D2 up in the head to head
Austria have won the last two against Northern Ireland
Northern Ireland have failed to score in their last two against Austria
This group is completely settled because Austria won’t move from second place regardless of what happens in this game. They have come up with only the one goal in their last four fixtures and that’s just another indicator that this fixture is likely to be short on goals. The one goal that they have come up with in their last four games was in their 1-0 success over Northern Ireland in the Nations League. A 0-0 correct score option is at 7/1 odds* (betting odds taken on November 16th, 2018 at 4:29 pm). Austria’s form over their last six games is W2 D1 L3.
It has been a bit of a surprising dip in form and that is because they were on a seven-match winning streak before that. None of Austria’s last five games has seen both teams score in a fixture. Austria are on a two-match losing streak out on their travels, again without having scored. Austria’s three Nations League games have produced just the two goals in total. With nothing at stake left in the game for either of these two then you get the feeling that the fixture may struggle to get up a big head of steam in terms of excitement.
There is nothing at stake now in this one. Austria can’t win the group, Northern Ireland can’t avoid relegation. So everyone will finish as they were and because of that the only outcome that we can predict is the draw really.
17th November 2018 / lee - Category: International Football Betting
Both Austria and Northern Ireland are on the hunt for their first points of the Nations League as both have already suffered defeats at the hands of group leaders Bosnia and Herzegovina. So suddenly the pressure is on because the loser of this one would start to look like favourites for relegation. Read our Austria v Northern Ireland betting tips for more.
Northern Ireland 6/1
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on October 8th, 2018 at 5:08 p.m.)
Back in the last international break, Austria played out a good 2-0 win over Sweden, being helped along by an opening home goal by the Swedes before David Alaba finished the job. They followed that up with a 1-0 loss against Bosnia and Herzegovina in their opening Nations League match. The game against Sweden was Austria’s first match since a loss in a friendly against Brazil back at the start of June, so it had been a while since they had played. Overall Austria are W4 L2 since the March international break.
So that’s not been bad form from them really and a 1-0 correct score in their favour is the shortest-priced option in the market. However, we feel it’s worth pushing to a 2-0 scoreline at 5/1* (Betting Odds were taken from October 8th, 2018 at 5:08 p.m.). Austria hold a W1 D2 unbeaten record from their three previous games against Northern Ireland, scoring at least two goals in each of those. The last time they met was in 2005 during World Cup 2006 qualifying and Austria won 2-0 at home.
Northern Ireland suffered a 2-1 loss against Bosnia and Herzegovina in their opening Nations League matches. They did respond to that pretty well though in taking a 3-0 home win over Israel in a friendly. But overall the form of Michael O’Neill’s men isn’t really there at the moment. They have won just two of their last nine games now (D2 L5) so have been up against it. They have scored in just four of their last nine fixtures as well, but have netted in their last two.
They aren’t a side who pack a great deal of punch in front of goal and therefore the 6/5 odds value on Austria to win to nil* (Betting Odds were taken from October 8th, 2018 at 5:08 p.m.) has to have some appeal here. The other way to swing for a betting option would be looking under 2.5 goals. The Irish are really going to be up against it if they fail to get anything on the board in this one. The Irish have failed to win any of their last four away games (D2 L2) and didn’t get on the scoresheet in any of those.
Austria showed enough in their recent win over Sweden to warrant backing in this one. The overall recent form from the Irish has been a bit below par. We are backing a home win and under 2.5 goals.

UEFA Nations League 2018/19 League B Preview
The first edition of the UEFA Nations League is upon us, the tournament designed to kick boring international friendly matches to the curb. League B, which has four separate groups in it has a lot of interest from the home-nations perspective.
Wales, Ireland and Northern Ireland are all in the mix in this second-tier of the competition and they will all be looking to get some good competitive campaigns going to build towards Euro 2020.
All three missed out on the World Cup and that is because neither of them looked particularly good through qualification. Looking back at the 2018 World cup qualifiers, that is just about the best place to start for form towards this Nations League. Slovakia finished second in their group behind England, while Ukraine could only manage third place in theirs, just as the Czech Republic did.
This doesn’t exactly look like the group that is going to produce the most exciting matches of the Nations League. So who is the one who is most likely to come out and actually perform well as an attacking unit? We would lean towards the Czech Republic actually who did only suffer a home loss against Germany in their 2018 World Cup campaign.
The trouble is, the Czech’s look really bad defensively. Slovakia and Ukraine both did pretty well on home soil during their qualification campaigns but they perhaps both lack the kind of quality output going forward that the Czech’s are likely to bring to the table. It’s all looking pretty even here.
Czech Republic 15/8
* (betting odds taken from bet365 on September 1st, 2018 at 11:30 pm)
Prediction: We are leaning towards Slovakia who may just have a bit more balance about them than the other two and at 7/4 odds* (betting odds taken on September 1st, 2018 at 11:30 pm) they are worth a flutter. They did alright when you look at their World Cup 2018 qualification campaign and won’t give much away.
At least the UEFA Nations League matches and groups look evenly matched and balanced and that perhaps is the whole point of it. So there are going to be competitive matches here in Group 2 of League B. Russia would never have expected themselves to have reached the World Cup quarter finals like they did in the summer. They hade zero form leading up to the tournament and just came to life at the right time out of nowhere. They lost in the quarter finals to eventual runners up Croatia.
Come to that late stage of the tournament, Russia were a spent force, their energy and quality totally drained and they just were hanging on. Sweden got to the final eight of the tournament as well where they lost out against England. The Three Lions kept the Swedes at arm’s length in that one and the Swedes will have been a bit disappointed with themselves that they did not compete better. The Swedes did top their group though.
Turkey failed to get to the World Cup so they are the odd team out in this National league group. It was a sub-par performance from them in their qualification campaign as they finished fourth behind Iceland, Croatia and Ukraine. They were alright at home but they really struggled out on the road and that could again be taking for this Nations League campaign. They just look unpredictable.
* (betting odds taken from bet365 on September 1st, 2018 at 11:30 pm)
Prediction: We can see the strengths of Sweden coming through and topping the group. Russia were playing above themselves in the World Cup and Sweden did have a good World Cup 2018 qualification campaign to get there in the first place, beating France in the group stage and then Italy in the play offs. We back the Swedes.
The presence of Northern Ireland in this group makes it fascinating. They once against shows what they were capable of in World Cup 2018 qualification. They ultimately missed out against Switzerland in the play offs, but the strengths and character that they have could actually serve them really well in the National League. They aren’t going to be easy to beat and at 7/2 underdogs* (betting odds taken on September 1st, 2018 at 11:30 pm) to win this group, would you put it past them to defy the odds?
Northern Ireland performed better than both Austria or Bosnia-Herzegovina did in World Cup 2018 qualification. The latter were edge out by Greece which was a surprise in itself. Bosnia-Herzegovina though heavily outscored the Greeks in the group, but defensively let themselves down, notably away from home.
Austria had a really competitive and tough qualification group with Serbia, Wales and Ireland in there, but there were chances to have been more productive than they were. They started slowly and by the time they hit a bit of form and started to close the gap to qualification a bit, it was too little too late. Defensively they didn’t have the goods that either Wales or Ireland had.
Northern Ireland 7/2
* (betting odds taken from bet365 on September 1st, 2018 at 11:30 pm)
Prediction: We have to side with Northern Ireland’s qualities in a competitive, tight group. You can be sure that they will be tight on home soil and of the three, they probably are the best suited to go out on the road and frustrate their opponents out of points. That makes the Irish appealing 7/2 odds as underdogs* (betting odds taken on September 1st, 2018 at 11:30 pm).
A couple of home nations derby matches coming up between Wales and Ireland in an exciting group. The two were just together in World Cup 2018 qualifying and although Wales were holding an advantage in the race for the top two for a while, Ireland just held themselves together better at the crucial time. They got a win in Wales in the final round of matches to make the telling difference.
But more tight clashes between them should be on the way and Wales will rely on the star power of Gareth Bale who has started the season with Real Madrid with a bang. Ireland are missing a player like that, but they graft hard and work for each other. Their character shone through at the end of the 2018 World Cup qualifiers until that dramatic collapse against Denmark in the play offs.
So the Irish get a chance to get themselves fired up for some revenge over the Danes when they meet in the Nations League and that’s a nice little side-story to all of this group. Denmark put together some nice stuff at the World Cup in the summer, with Tottenham’s Christian Eriksen at the heart of everything good about them.
* (betting odds taken from bet365 on September 1st, 2018 at 11:30 pm)
Prediction: We can’t look past favourites Denmark at 4/5 odds* (betting odds taken on September 1st, 2018 at 11:30 pm) as compared to the other two, they have more pieces of quality in their squad to call upon. They put together an unbeaten run from the start of 2017 through to the end of the World Cup where they were only defeated on penalties by Croatia in the round of sixteen.

Austria have already ruffled the feathers of Germany ahead of the World Cup as they beat the reigning world champions in a friendly last weekend. How will they fare against Brazil? It will be pretty interesting to find out. Brazil collected a success over Croatia last weekend as they look to put the finishing touches to their World Cup preparations.
*(Betting Odds taken at 5:06 a.m. on June 6th, 2018)
Austria are in some cracking form at the moment having won their last seven games on the bounce. This run of success started with a 3-2 win over Serbia in the World Cup qualifiers. Ultimately Austria fell short in trying to reach the 2018 World Cup, but since then in international friendly matches they have beaten Uruguay and Russia and last weekend they took a 2-1 win over Germany. So they may have some appeal to make a game of this as they face up against Brazil on Sunday. Because Austria are carrying some form it may be worth a flutter on both teams to score with bet365 at 4/5 odds* (Betting Odds taken at 5:06 a.m. on June 6th, 2018) and there will be some equal appeal in the game going over 2.5 goals. Austria could make a real goal of this as they have conceded just one goal in their last four games.
The last time that Brazil and Austria met was in a 2014 international friendly which the Selecao won 2-1. There was a third game between the two nations and it made it three wins from three for Brazil. Their first two meetings were both World Cup fixtures which were in 1958 and 1978 which Brazil won with a clean sheet in each.
Brazil handled themselves well against Croatia on the weekend as they faced up against what was a tricky opponent (and a physical one). They should get another decent test here and it was notable that in their win over Croatia, Neymar on his return from injury, hit the back of the net. As they are working Neymar back to full fitness and match sharpness after his injury he may get some time in this one and if he does he will naturally be a big focus of any time goalscorer bets. In the bet365 correct score market for the fixture, a Brazil 2-1 option is at 7/1 odds. Brazil are unbeaten in their last nine games having won six of those and during the sequence, they have collected seven clean sheets.
Austria should be a tricky opponent for Brazil as the Austrians don’t have to worry about things like injuries ahead of the World Cup. So it may be worth backing them to get on the scoresheet and you imagine the longer the game goes on the more Brazil would just ease off in what is their last game before Russia 2018, therefore consider the draw.

Neighbours Austria and Germany will meet up in Klagenfurt on the weekend. Germany are the reigning World Champions and will be heading out to Russia soon to launch their title defence. This will be a good warm up for the Germans against Austria, who couldn’t quite get their momentum going during their World Cup qualification campaign.
Germany 1/2, Draw 10/3, Austria 5/1* (Betting Odds taken at 9:21 p.m. on May 28th, 2018)
Austria failed to get out of a World Cup 2018 qualification group which was won by Serbia with the Republic of Ireland taking second place. After what had been a positive Euro 2016 qualification campaign, the challenge of Austria fell a little bit flat in trying to reach this summer’s World Cup. With that said though, they closed out the March international break with a comfortable victory over minnows Luxembourg, which took the Austrians to five straight victories. In that sequence of wins, one was against their qualification group winners Serbia and they took a victory in a friendly against World Cup-bound Uruguay as well. So there are some positives which Austria could take forward to their Euro 2020 qualification campaign. It means that they could also give reigning World Champions Germany a good run out. Two of the last four meetings between Austria and Germany has seen the Germans run out 2-1 winners and in the bet365 correct score market, a repeat 2-1 scoreline for Germany is 7/1 odds* (Betting Odds taken at 9:12 p.m. on May 28th, 2018).
Germany are on a nine-match winning streak against Austria, from both competitive and friendly meetings, and they are unbeaten in 11 against them. The last meeting between them was during World Cup 2014 qualification with Germany winning both matches. Germany have scored at least two goals in eight of their last nine fixtures against Austria and therefore it may be worth looking over 2.5 goals which is at 3/4 odds with bet365* (Betting Odds taken at 9:12 p.m. on May 28th, 2018). Each of the last four fixtures between the two neighbours have ended up that way. Germany are going to the game only having posted only a D3 L1 record in their last four games, so not the hottest form from them. Back in the March international break they played out a draw against Spain but then suffered a 1-0 defeat against Brazil. That was Germany’s first defeat though since their Euro 2016 exit. Also something to take into consideration is that their last four games have been against England, France, Spain and Brazil so they have certainly been pushing themselves. But they will just be looking to get a little bit of momentum going ahead of their title defence at Russia 2018.
Germany have form in Austria and they may just be a bit of value to go and get themselves a narrow win. Austria can make life difficult for Die Mannschaft because of their current form, but may ultimately just come up short.
