Türkiye faces Austria in the round of 16 of the European Championship

Türkiye faces Austria in the round of 16 of the European Championship

The Austria national football team will face Turkey in the round of 16 of the European Championship on Tuesday (9pm / live on ServusTV) in Leipzig. The Turks secured second place in Group F with a 2-1 win over the Czech Republic in Hamburg on Wednesday evening. It is also good for Austria that Samet Akydin and Hakan Calhanoglu received their second yellow card of the tournament and will therefore have to watch in the round of 16. In the quarter-finals, the winner of the duel between Romania and the Netherlands will wait for ÖFB. It is possible that there will be a new edition of the European Championship with the “orange” in Berlin, of all places, in the quarter-finals.

ÖFB beat the Netherlands 3-2 at the end of the group stage at the Olympiastadion in Berlin on Tuesday and won the group. The Dutch qualified for the round of 16 as one of four third teams to advance to the group – and there, due to Georgia's surprise victory over Portugal (2-0), they dropped into the Austrians' quarter of the net.

If the ÖFB reach the semi-finals, they will compete for it on July 10 in Dortmund. Their opponents will be either England, Slovakia, Switzerland or Italy. Austria only have to face Spain, Portugal, tournament favourites Germany and France and Belgium in the final on July 14 in Berlin. The matches will then be played every four days from July 2. At the moment, Ralf Rangnick has no games in his squad until Tuesday. The match against Turkey is the last of all the round of 16 matches at the European Championship.

ÖFB won their last duel with the Turks 6-1 in a test in Vienna in March. Before Tuesday's coup in Berlin, there had been seven successive defeats to the Dutch since 1990. ÖFB's last international matches against Romania, surprise winners of Group E at the European Championship, were played in autumn 2020 in front of empty stands in the Nations League due to the coronavirus pandemic. A 2-3 home defeat in Klagenfurt was followed by a 1-0 away win under coach Franco Foda.
