Having been postponed in 2020, the European Championships are due to take place in the summer of 2021 and we are delighted to bring you our Austria vs North Macedonia betting tips.

We begin our Austria vs North Macedonia prediction by taking a look at the favourites to win this game. Austria will be playing in their second successive European Championship having also qualified in 2016. They were eliminated at the group stage of that tournament, without winning a match and will be hoping for better this time, especially as they have the opportunity to play North Macedonia in this fixture.
I have a love for details and that means players need to pay attention in every training session. We want to play on the front foot, transition quickly, play in the direction of the opposition goal, and thankfully it worked well for us in the last few qualification games. It is a special thing: it is not a given that Austria will qualify for the EURO and we can all be proud of that. - Franco Foda after qualifying to the tournament, uefa.com
Simply due to the fact they have greater experience of playing at this level, the predictions for Austria vs North Macedonia must be in favour of the former and the betting odds for North Macedonia vs Austria back that up for Austria to win.
The Austrian team qualified for Euro 2020 by finishing second in Group G, behind Poland. Interestingly, North Macedonia were also in this group and Austria won both the home and away fixtures. This continues to back up many of the Austria vs North Macedonia tips and predictions that it will be the Austrians who take maximum points from this fixture.
Indeed, Austria also enjoyed a good recent Nations League campaign, which saw them win a group containing Norway, Romania, and Northern Ireland. Therefore, we are in no doubt who is the North Macedonia vs Austria favourite.
2. North Macedonia vs Austria Outsiders
Now we move to the North Macedonia vs Austria outsider. The Austria vs North Macedonia outsider is the latter and the country will be participating in the European Championship for the first time. Despite failing to qualify for the tournament through the regular European Qualifiers, North Macedonia took their opportunity to reach the tournament via the Nations League.
The predictions for North Macedonia vs Austria give them little chance of winning this game. North Macedonia faced Austria twice during the 2020 European Championship qualifying campaign and lost both matches, including a heavy 4-1 defeat at home.
However, North Macedonia finished top of their group in the first Nations League and this earned them qualification to Division C. North Macedonia were drawn with Armenia, Georgia, and Estonia. North Macedonia managed to win only 2 of their 6 fixtures but it was enough to finish in second place. That was good enough to see them enter the play offs where they defeated Kosovo 2-1 before beating Georgia, 1-0 in the final.
However, the performances against lower ranked teams does not change the North Macedonia vs Austria prediction and they are the outsiders for this match.
