It promises to be a thrilling Group F campaign as teams battle for vital points to ensure their progression through to EURO 2024. Austria will be one of the leading contenders to finish in the top two places, and they kick off their campaign against Azerbaijan on Friday evening.
EURO 2024 Qualifier Preview
Austria will once again be among the leading contenders to finish in one of the top two positions in EURO qualification. However, they will need a better campaign than they managed when trying to reach the World Cup in Qatar, as they managed to picked up just five wins from eleven games, as they missed out on a place in the World Cup for the sixth straight edition of the tournament.
However, they have managed to reach the EUROs more frequently throughout their modern history, as they have competed at the event in three of the previous four editions. Their best ever showing at the EUROs came in the 2020 event, as they reached the round of 16 after winning two of their four matches. Austria comes into this qualification campaign after winning one of their six matches in Division A of the Nations League last year.
Azerbaijan should come into the qualifying campaign in good spirits, as they have won each of their last three international fixtures. Their most recent win was a 3-1 success away from home against North Macedonia. However, they are yet to qualify for the EUROs as a single nation.
In the previous qualifying round for the EUROs, they failed to pick up a single victory from eight matches. However, their Nations League performances from last season could offer some hope, as they won three from six games to finish second in Division C3.
Austria vs Azerbaijan Head to Head
Austria has gone four matches without defeat against Azerbaijan, picking up three wins over that period. However, their most recent victory was picked up over ten years ago, as Austria landed a 4-1 in October 2011. Azerbaijan’s only point against Austria came in the form of a 0-0 draw in September 2005.
Austria vs Azerbaijan Prediction
Austria has been in disappointing recent form, but they always appear to have a habit of making it out of EURO qualification. We expect them to kick off their Group F campaign with a victory on Friday evening against Azerbaijan.
