Austria – Slovakia Match Preview
- Austria face Slovakia for a final test prior to the Euros, but enter this friendly on a run of two defeats ‘to nil’, and with just one win from their last five (W1, D2, L2). Yet whilst they have conceded first in five of their previous six matches, they came back to claim a result in three (W2, D1) of those five.
- Gearing up for only their third appearance at a European Championships, Austria will be concerned by that tendency to concede early, and have even conceded the opener in seven of their last eight games on home soil (W5, D1, L2). However only the two losses during that period saw Austria concede over 1.5 goals, which is true for only one of four H2Hs too (W1, D2, L1).
- This is also Slovakia’s final warm-up game before the Euros, as they hope to star in only their second appearance in the competition finals as an independent nation. They enter this exhibition on a four-game unbeaten run, albeit all vs teams ranked below them by FIFA, and including disappointing draws against lowly Cyprus (#97) and Malta (#175). That run also includes their only goalless draw since a 0-0 in the last H2H back in November 2016.
- The visitors are winless within 90 minutes in six away games (D3, L3), despite winning the first half 1-0 in three. However, poor performances after HT saw them lose the second half ‘to nil’ in five of those games.
- Players to watch: Saša Kalajdžić scored 16 Bundesliga goals this season and has netted three across his last three games for Austria too. Meanwhile, László Bénes helped Slovakia to a draw with his first-ever senior international goal last time out. That was a first-half strike, like his only Bundesliga goal for Augsburg in 2020/21.
- Hot streak: Austria’s last ten games produced goals in only one half, eight of which saw the goals arrive in the second half.
