Austria vs Denmark: Prediction and Betting Tips
Austria looking for a crucial win
After a 2-2 draw in their opening match of Group F World Cup Qualifier, Austria hit back and beat the Faroe Islands 3-1. The Austrians are unbeaten in six competitive matches and are looking for their eighth World Cup appearance and their first since 1998.
Coach Franco Foda has a very good squad at his disposal and he thinks with this team he must be able to qualify to the World Cup in a group in which there is only Denmark higher in the Fifa world ranking chart than Austria.
In their last match against the Faroe Islands, Austria surprisingly were a goal down in the 16th minute but hit back quickly with three goals before halftime. The Austrians were the dominant side in the match with 64% possession and 26 goal attempts.
Denmark to maintain their form
Ten goals in two matches against lowly Israel and Moldova gave Denmark the lead in Group F. The Danes have won three of their last four meetings with Austria and are hoping to secure another three points in Vienna to extend their lead at the top of the group.
In their last five games, Denmark have scored 16 goals and conceded five. Two or more goals have been scored in five of their last six matches. Austria are surely a much tougher side than coach Kaspar Hjulmand’s first two opponents and it will be a real test to see whether they can maintain their form.
Denmark has a very stable form in the World Cup qualification matches. They are unbeaten in their last 11 matches winning eight of them.
- Austria have not lost in their last three home matches
- Austria have scored in their last nine home matches
- Denmark have won three of their last four away matches
- Denmark have scored in all of their last five away matches
Austria vs Denmark Prediction
Quite high odds for the outright winner of this match by the bookies shows how a close matchup is this as only 11 places separate these two nations on the Fifa world ranking chart. We think Denmark are more stable in recent matches and have a respectable form away from home.
Although Austria haven’t lost at home in three matches, they were playing lower ranked teams than them in the Nations League B. On the other hand, Denmark played in the Nations League A and beat the likes of England at Wembley and Iceland.
We will back a Denmark win for this one.
