Group C: Austria Team Preview Ahead Of Euro 2020

The upcoming European Championship will be Austria’s third participation. After their second successful qualification campaign, they should be riding high. In 2008 they co-hosted and therefore skipped qualifying. We have noted down a preview of Austria in Group C ahead of Euro 2020.

Competing in the European competition for the third time Austria has one of their most successful managers in Franco Foda on paper. However, fans have yet to warm to this Austria side’s conservative playing style. Hopes for Austria at Euro 2020 are not high after their biggest ever home defeat in their last competitive fixture [0-4 against Denmark].

Since Italia ’90, the nation’s supporters haven’t been able to enjoy a single tournament success, and they were brought down at Euro 2016 after the weight of expectation, even a reasonably mild group appears to be a difficult proposition for a side with major confidence issues.

Playing a trade in a good team, Austria has quality players like Marcel Sabitzer and Christoph Baumgartner. But Austria sorely needs to let the handbrake off if they are to gather enough momentum to go far this time around.

It’s difficult to see Austria advancing farther than that at Euro 2020. Group C is likely to be a bruising contest for the positions behind sure table-toppers the Netherlands, but with second and (maybe) third place anticipated to face Italy, Portugal, or Germany in the Round of 16.

Austria will be under pressure, after finishing bottom of their 2016 group, when they take the field in Bucharest for a must-win opening game against North Macedonia. Given the potential on offer in Franco Foda’s squad, passage to the Round of 16 should be a formality if they can get that elusive tournament-level win under their belts, but if not, they could be looking at an early exit.
