The Austrians met the expectations last time out at home against underdogs from the Faroe Islands, as they routinely outplayed them with a 3:1 result.
The hosts found themselves in deficit since the 19th minute, but with great persistency and sharpness at the finishing, scored three in the 30th, 37th, and 44th minute, and created an unreachable advantage.
In the continuation, the Austrians controlled the match but didn’t show too much interest to increase their lead, so the result remained unchanged till the end of the encounter.
Austrians miss defender Wober (6/0), midfielders Zulj (11/0, Goztepe), Jantscher (23/1, Sturm), Bamugartlinger (82/1, Leverkusen), and forward Arnautovic (87/26, Shanghai) compared to previous call-up.
Not much to say about the Danish last appearance in the qualifications at home against Moldova when they recorded a mind-blowing 8:0 victory.
They managed to score as many five times during the first part and added three more to the scoreline in the continuation, and recorded a victory that will probably be one of the most convincing ones throughout the European part of qualifiers.
Defenders Dalsgaard (26/1, Brentford), Jorgensen (34/2, Copenhagen), midfielder Billing (1/0, Bournemouth) and forwards Cornelius (27/5, Parma) and Sisto (25/1, Midtjylland) are missing out this time.
A great offensive potential
Both sides appeared effective in their last matches, especially Denmark, and currently being at the first two places in Group F, these two will probably give everything they have for another three points in the upcoming clash.
As mentioned, they have great offensive potential, and it would be truly surprising if one side manages to keep their sheet clean. After all, they find their comfort in an open match but are also not that reliable in the backline when playing against tougher opponents.
