Match preview

International Friendly, Austria will play against with Slovakia at home. Despite ultimately losing to a Bukayo Saka second-half winner in Middlesbrough, England, on Wednesday, Austria manager Franco Foda would have been fairly satisfied with his team's application against one of Euro 2020's outright favourites. Indeed, his side had considerably more shots and more possession than the Three Lions, while showing plenty of aggression on the way to committing 19 fouls and consequently picking up three yellow cards. While Euro 2020 remains the priority, with Das Team facing Netherlands, Ukraine and North Macedonia as they attempt to progress from Group C, Foda will be keen for his side to earn a morale boosting win against Slovakia on Sunday. Should they apply similar levels of spirit and quality as they did against England, there is every chance they can do so ahead of their opening match against North Macedonia one week later. 

Slovakia, meanwhile, may have taken less confidence from failing to beat a Bulgaria side which has not qualified for this summer's major tournament. In fairness, key players such as Marek Hamsik, Milan Skriniar and Martin Dubravka were not involved in the international friendly, with manager Stefan Tarkovic potentially saving the trio for this Sunday's trip to Austria instead. However, Tarkovic would still have been disappointed by falling short of victory against a country which is 35 places lower than his in the FIFA World Rankings. With Spain, Poland and Sweden to overcome in Group E at Euro 2020, Slovakia will need to perform much better if they are to reach the knockout stages for a second successive European Championship, with a decent performance potentially required in Austria on Sunday to build momentum.


Austria possible starting lineup:
Bachman; Trimmel, Dragovic, Hinteregger, Friedl; Laimer, Schlager, Alaba; Baumgartlinger, Kalajdzic, Sabitzer

Slovakia possible starting lineup:
Dubravka; Pekarik, Satka, Skriniar, Hubocan; Lobotka, Hrosovsky, Hamsik; Suslov, Duris, Weiss
