Austria – Can Austria halt their losing start?

Austria have started their European Championship qualifying campaign in poor fashion as they’ve been handed back-to-back defeats at the start of the Group G group campaign, losing 1-0 at home to Poland which was followed by a heavy defeat away at Israel in a 4-2 loss.

These recent defeats have left Friday night’s hosts joint bottom of Group G with Latvia who are also pointless, but the Austrians have a chance to rectify their situation at home against Slovenia, and having suffered just 2 defeats out of their last 14 matches overall in all competitions on home soil, they’ll be confident they can get off the mark on Friday night.

The other loss was a 3-0 defeat to Brazil in a friendly but recent wins against Germany, Sweden and Northern Ireland along with a point against Bosnia-Herzegovina will give the Austrians cause for optimism here.

If star striker, Marko Arnautovic can prove as effective as he has been in recent seasons in the Premier League (where he’s scored in double-figures in 3 of the last 4 seasons), then Austria should stand a good chance of resurrecting their European Championship hopes.

Slovenia Prediction – Can Slovenia get something out of Austria trip?

It’s perhaps no surprise that Slovenia have started their Euro 2020 qualifying campaign with back-to-back draws which has placed them in 4th spot in Group G following stalemates with both Israel and North Macedonia, and both resulting in 1-1 draws.

Slovenia have earned something of a reputation of being the ‘draw specialists’ in recent times as the visitors have drawn all of their last 5 matches in all competitions, which include additional draws with Cyprus, Norway and Bulgaria in the Nations League.

However, the flip-side means that Slovenia have actually won just 1 of their last 13 matches in all competitions which was a 2-0 win away at Montenegro back in June last year in a friendly, while also losing 6 of these 13 matches.

Turning to results away from home, and the win at Montenegro has been Slovenia’s only success in their last 11 matches on their travels, and I daresay the visitors would settle for a point away in Austria this Friday night.

In addition, Slovenia have failed to score in 6 of these last 11 matches away from home too, so they look to have their work cut out to even get a point against Austria here.


Key-Facts – Austria v Slovenia

  • Austria have lost just 2 of their last 14 matches at home in all competitions
  • Slovenia have won just 1 of their last 13 matches in all competitions
  • Slovenia have failed to score in 6 of their last 11 matches away from home


Betting Tips Verdict

Despite Austria’s bad start, the hosts should get something from this clash, but perhaps use the handicap as Slovenia are known to draw a lot of matches!
