Austria vs North Macedonia: Betting tips, predictions, odds & match preview

Austria and North Macedonia kick off their Euro 2020 tournament with a clash in Bucharest, Romania. On Sunday at 5pm BST. 

Austria vs North Macedonia: Predictions

Austria secured their spot at Euro 2020 having finished as runners-up in Group G. Franco Foda’s men finished the qualifying games on 19 points which proved enough to fend off Sunday’s opposition, North Macedonia, who finished on 14 points and secured their spot at the tournament via the play-offs.

North Macedonia enter the tournament in fine form having not lost in their last four games and winning three of those games. The highlight of their Euro preparations actually came in the 2022 World Cup Qualifiers with a stunning and unexpected 2-1 victory over the international powerhouse in Joachim Löw’s Germany.

England fans should be fairly familiar with this Austria side after the Three Lions prevailed at the Riverside Stadium against them just last week. Foda’s side proved to be far from a pushover with the likes of RB Leipzig’s Marcel Sabitzer proving a constant threat to England’s backline and forcing a stunning save from Jordan Pickford to deny Das Team an equaliser.

The Netherlands go into this summer’s tournament as the clear favourites with the bookies to take Group C. However, the second spot certainly seems one of the most open across all of the groups. The game on Sunday is going to provide both sides the opportunity to set the tone for the rest of their group games with three points looking like they will be the only option for both teams.
