The Austrian national team will fight on Monday (6 pm / LIVE ORF 1) in Bucharest to participate for the first time in the Round of 16 of the European Football Championship. By beating Ukraine, the Austrian Premier League team will get their ticket as group runners-up. Even a draw should in all probability be enough to rise as one of the best four-thirds of the group. In case of defeat, there is a risk of severe tremors. Only in the days after will the Austrians know if they will stay in the tournament.
After their inaugural 3-1 win over North Macedonia and 0-2 over the Netherlands, ÖFB’s selection went to the decider as third party due to a lesser-scoring goal behind the tied Ukrainians. Neither team has reached the knockout stage of the European Championship finals. The last time Austria reached the finals of the World Cup 1982. At that time, an intermediate round was held. The ÖFB has not played a knockout match in a major tournament since the 1954 World Cup.
