Austria are also under new ownership, with the man in the dugout the familiar face of Ralf Rangnick. It is two qualifiers played and two victories for Austria who have defeated Azerbaijan 4-1 and Estonia 2-1. With Sweden just behind in third, the Austrians will most likely need at least a point if they want to continue in the qualification places.
