Online soccer predictions that win for Austria – North Macedonia
Austria faces North Macedonia at the Arena Nationala in Bucuresti in a match from Group C of the Euro 2020. We advise you to remain with us because here are our usual online soccer predictions that win. Are you ready to take a look at them?
For Austria, this is a third appearance at the European Championship. So far, Das Team has never progressed past the group stage, so this is the goal in front of them right now. Netherlands and Ukraine are also part of this group, so it won’t be easy – that’s for sure.
Austria is currently managed by the German tactician Franco Forda who has a vast experience in Austrian football with Sturm Graz. It’s up to him to prepare his players in the best way possible for what’s ahead. Austria is surely not among the favorites for the trophy, but we should not underestimate them – each one of the teams here deserves respect.
During the European qualifiers, Austria finished second in their group with 19 points won which allowed them to reach the Euro 2020. Das Team won 6 of its 10 matches in the group and finished ahead of North Macedonia and Slovenia. Only Poland finished above them and won the group.
In the World Cup qualifiers, the Austrians kicked off their campaign with some inconsistency as they won once, made one draw, and suffered one defeat. They won against the Faroe Islands but made a draw against Scotland and suffered a defeat at the hands of Denmark.
It was extremely unpleasant against the Danish team because Austria got beaten with 0-4 at home in Wien. This was one of Das Team’s worst performances under the management of Franco Foda. Nothing really worked for them during the game, and this is the kind of performance they would like to avoid at the Euro.
Real Madrid’s new signing David Alaba is one of the leaders in Das Team. Against Denmark, he was used as a winger, but he’s pretty much able to play everywhere on the pitch – including in defense and midfield.
Shanghai Port’s Marko Arnautovic remains the top striker in Austria’s team. The former West Ham forward has scored 26 goals for the national team so far, and he’s one of the best strikers this country has produced in the last 15 years. Stuttgart’s Sasa Kalajdzic is another player the opponents must keep an eye on – he has scored three goals in five appearances for the national team, which is an impressive stat.
RB Leipzig’s Marcel Sabitzer is a crucial player for the national team, too. Sabitzer is usually playing behind the striker, and he uses his control on the ball to distribute it in the best way possible. At the same time, Bayer Leverkusen’s Julian Baumgartlinger will have to control the midfield thanks to his vast experience on the top level.
Bayer Leverkusen’s Aleksandar Dragovic is a player who is going to be crucial for Austria in defense. The center-back is 30-years old now, and he managed to gain some precious experience through the years. He even spent one season in the Premier League with Leicester City. It’d be very important for Das Team how Dragovic will perform at the Euro. His stability and composure in defense will set the tone for how Austria will defend against their opponents.
Austria and North Macedonia were in the same qualifying group for the Euro 2020. Das Team managed to win both games against the Balkan team – 4-1 in Skopje and 2-1 in Wien. This should give them some mental advantage, but let’s see.
North Macedonia celebrated its first qualification for a significant football tournament. Never so far this country managed to reach the World Cup or the European Championship. But there’s the first thing for everything, right?
The 44-years old Igor Angelovski is the head coach who’s responsible for the historic success of the Lynxes. At the same time, Goran Pandev remains a significant figure in the team. He’s the captain of North Macedonia, and he has played 118 games for his country so far – a record achievement so far.
North Macedonia started their World Cup qualifying campaign outstandingly. The Lynxes beat Liechtenstein in their first game, but the real historical night came three days later when North Macedonia celebrated a stunning 2-1 win during the visit to Germany. Goran Pandev and Eljif Elmas scored for the visitors, who had one of the best nights in this nation’s history so far. To win against Germany on their own soil is not something that happens every day. The whole country celebrated this win for days, and they have all the right to do so.
The 21-years old Eljif Elmas is an exciting talent who is about to grow even more in the future. Elmas currently plays for Italian powerhouse Napoli, so he has enough confidence now to shine at the Euro. He’s a talented midfielder who can play with the ball and create opportunities for his teammates. We are pretty sure the manager Igor Angelovski will try to build his team around players like him, despite his young age.
The 34-years old striker Ivan Trichkovski remains one of North Macedonia’s best players at the moment. Currently playing for AEK Larnaca in Cyprus, Trichkovski is a player with a very good eye for the goal. Last season he scored 16 league goals for AEK, so if Angelovski uses him at the Euro, he would be a decisive player.
That’s our online soccer predictions that win for the Euro 2020 game between Austria and North Macedonia from Group C of the competition. Austria won twice against this opponent during the qualifying campaign, but this will mean nothing when they face each other again in Bucuresti on June 13. Maybe Das Team will be favorite according to the bookies, but we want to remind you that this Macedonian team won against Germany just two months ago. Any team which underestimates them would have some serious problems.
