Austria odds to win Euro 2024: Probability, path to final, tactics, stats & key players

Published: 8:15, 3 July 2024

Against all the odds, Austria secured their spot in the last 16 of Euro 2024 after topping Group D, but were eliminated in the round of 16 by Turkey.

Led by the ‘godfather of gegenpressing’, there was a renewed belief that Austria under Ralf Rangnick could be Euro 2024‘s true dark horses after finishing ahead of France, Netherlands and Poland.

However, despite having many great chances and creating over 3 xG in the match, Austria succumbed to Turkey in the round of 16.

Austria potential knockout stage opponents

As Group D winners, Austria were put in the “easier” side of the draw on paper. However, they conceded in the first minute to Merih Demiral and it became an uphill struggle. Ausrtia created five big chances in the match, but failed to take any of them, as they couldn’t turn over the deficit and crashed out with the score 1-2.

Austria key players for this year’s European Championship

Austria top Euros Golden Boot contender: Marko Arnautovic

  • Key stat: Marko Arnautovic is Austria’s all-time leading scorer with 37 goals.

During their Euro 2024 qualifying campaign, one-time Manchester United loanee Marcel Sabitzer finished as Austria’s leading scorer with four goals. Michael Gregoritsch was the top Austrian in Europe’s top five leagues for goals, but Marko Arnautovic is be the man leading Rangnick’s side. He’s also still first-choice penalty taker, giving him the edge in an Austria squad where no player has scored more than once so far at Euro 2024.

A troublesome hamstring injury has reduced Arnautovic’s appearances for Inter Milan and his experience on the international level. In his nine European Championship outings to date, Arnautovic has two goals — extending his tally from the spot against Poland.

Austria primary playmaker: Christoph Baumgartner

  • Key stat: Christoph Baumgartner has recorded one assist from four chances created at Euro 2024.

Austria have a fairly creative squad as a whole, with chances being created across the pitch. In total, 10 different players have created at least one chance for Austria at Euro 2024, with Nicolas Seiwald leading the way on five. Just one chance back is Christoph Baumgartner, who has played 71 fewer minutes than Seiwald.

Baumgartner has started two of Austria’s three games at Euro 2024, one as a No.10 and the other playing on the wing, showing his ability to create from various positions on the pitch. On top of his four chances created, Baumgartner has created one big chance and is one of four Austrian players to provide an assist at Euro 2024.

Austria card magnet & top tackler: Stefan Posch

  • Key stat: Stefan Posch has committed nine fouls at Euro 2024 so far.

Flying down Austria’s right flank, Stefan Posch is no shrinking violet, accumulating seven yellow cards in the 2023/24 Serie A campaign. And he’s not letting up at Euro 2024. Although Nicolas Seiwald leads Austria for tackles (13), Posch isn’t too far behind on 11. Crucially, however, Posch has also committed nine fouls at Euro 2024, with only one player committed more so far.

Posch is also one of nine Austrian players to be booked at Euro 2024 so far, and goes into their last 16 tie against Turkey at risk of suspension.

Austria rising star: Leopold Querfeld

Austria have a generally younger squad and Leopold Querfeld could be an interesting pick at centre-back. The 20-year-old only made his senior debut in March, starting the 2-0 win over Slovakia. He added a second cap against Serbia earlier this month. He has been used mostly as a substitute, playing 26 minutes, but Querfeld is ready to take a step up if required.

Austria tactical analysis and formation

Austria team stats at Euro 2024 (average per game):

  • Corners in qualifying: 3.67
  • Corners conceded: 43.67
  • Shots on target: 5.67
  • Shots on target conceded: 2.67
  • Offsides: 1

Following a disappointing caretaker role at Manchester United, the former Red Bull football supremo Ralf Rangnick was installed as his nation’s manager. A first foray into international management has gone smoothly so far. Rangnick has overseen 22 matches, with 13 victories, including six in their last seven.

Rangnick’s reputation precedes him, and the Austrians’ approach to business shouldn’t be too dissimilar to his previous sides, which heavily emphasised counter-pressing. What shape they adopt when kicking off their campaign remains to be seen. Rangnick has experimented with several different formations, ranging from 3-5-2 to 4-3-3. However, in all three Euro 2024 group games he has played 4-2-3-1.
