This is a fascinating match in Group A1 of the UEFA Nations League as the teams have very different agendas.

Croatia will look to secure a victory that will see them seal the top spot and make it through to the Play Off Finals.

Austria meanwhile will be fighting for everything that they can get to try and avoid relegation to the second tier.

Austria Preview – Can Austria Upset The Odds?

Austria slipped to a 2-0 away loss in France on Thursday, dropping them deep into relegation danger.

The result leaves Austria at W1 D1 L3 in this campaign.

There has been little to cheer about on home soil for them as well.

Austria suffered a 2-1 loss against Denmark and picked up a point in their home fixture against the French.

A draw is not going to be good enough for them to avoid the drop.

Not unless France loses heavily to Denmark in their final match of the group.

Problematically for Austria, they are missing a host of players.

Top players David Alaba and Marko Arnautovic both withdrew during Thursday’s match against France because of problems.

They have other major fitness concerns for key players.

Our betting prediction:
Croatia 1-0 Correct Score
