Austria Team  Preview

AustriaRalf Ragnick’s Austria has been a treat to watch for those who support underdogs. They have been sensational throughout the Group stages. They started with a hard-fought loss against France. But they made a well-planned comeback against Poland. They fought them toe-toe and beat them to a surprising scoreline of 3-1. But it wasn’t until the match against Netherlands they showed their true colors. They took the fight to the Oranje and gave us fans one of the most exciting matches in the group stages. Their captain, Marcel Sabitzer, scored the late winner to finish the match 3-2.

You would be mistaken to think the Austrians have suddenly started playing well. They have been on the rise since Ragnick took over. They have won 15 of their last 25 matches, which is a very high win percentage record for any team. They have changed their playstyle and transitioned into playing more pressing football. This isn’t very surprising, given that Ragnick is considered the father of Gegenpressing. They scored six goals in a group that had teams like France and Netherlands, which tells you how much they have improved.

Austria’s main strength lies in its forward line. Players like Christoph Baumgartner and Romano Schmid possess incredible energy and can press with high intensity to create chances. Not to mention their start player Marcel Sabitzer, who has been phenomenal till now. With Marko Arnautović leading from the front, they are not afraid to get out of their half and take the game to the opponent. Their fearless football is what makes them capable of taking on any Elite European team.

Austria has a compact defense unit. They have been defensively aggressive in their last three matches. Which is why they have the highest number of fouls in their name. Defenders like Max Wöber in the team seem to understand their job well.

With their dominant performance, Austria will be aiming for nothing less than a Quarterfinal spot.

Predicted XI: Patrick Pentz, Philipp Lienhart, Kevin Danso, Phillipp Mwene, Stefan Posch, Nicolas Seiwald, Florian Grillitsch, Christoph Baumgartner, Romano Schmid, Marcel Sabitzer, Marko Arnautovic

They tend to cover a lot of the field and press the opponent. They also press aggressively, which is why they have a high turnover rate. They scored five goals in their group-stage matches.

Türkiye’s strong midfield is one of the keys to their success. Led by the experienced Captain Hakan Çalhanoğlu, their midfielders pack incredible vision and creativity. They also like to hold the ball, which is evident in their possession stats during the group stages.

Montella has formed a balanced squad for Türkiye’s, one that has capable players for every role. Their style of quick play and confidence is what they should leverage.
