Austria is a very good team. They are not straight-forward. I think we have a good chance of progressing out of this group. Of course, it will depend on the condition of our players throughout the European Championship. - Andriy Schevchenko after the groups were drawn, UEFA official website
Our Austria vs Ukraine betting predictions suggest this is a match Ukraine should be winning and they enjoyed a successful qualifying campaign which saw them finish above Portugal in their group. However, when researching this Ukraine vs Austria preview, it becomes apparent Ukraine has struggled to progress from the group stages in recent European Championships. In fact, they were eliminated at the group stage in each of the last two tournaments and have never reached the knockout stages of the European Championship in their history.
That will only add to the pressure on the Ukraine players going into this match if they are yet to book their place in the Round of 16. Nonetheless, the betting odds for Austria vs Ukraine with have the Ukraine as the favourites to win this game.
2. Austria vs Ukraine Outsiders
We are placing the Austria vs Ukraine outsider in this bracket because we believe the Austrian team to be slightly weaker than their opponents. However, when making predictions for Austria vs Ukraine it is worth nothing the Austrians have an identical recent record to their opponents in terms of reaching the knockout stages of the European Championship. They have had two attempts, one in 2008 and the other in 2016, failing on both occasions. In fact, Austria have yet to win a match at the European Championship prior to the beginning of this competition.
Austria qualified for the tournament by finishing in second place in their group behind Poland. Interestingly, Austria were in the same qualifying group as North Macedonia and managed to finish 5 points clear of their fellow Group C team.
Much like Ukraine, Austria know they must take maximum points from North Macedonia if they are to have any chance of reaching the knockout stages for the first time. Even then, they must win this match or rely on head-to-head record and goal difference if they do not take anything from the Dutch.
