Saturday, 26.03.2016 at 17:30
It’s the start to the European championship year for Austria. In the first international match they play in front of the own audience against the surprising candidate that has been qualified, Albania. A victory would boost the already big self-esteem of the Austrian national team. Kick-off at the Ernst Happel Stadium will be on Saturday at 5.30 p.m..
Current Performance of Austria - The year of the international matches ended with a defeat for Austria in 2015. Of all countries it was the home of the Austrian team Coach Marcel Koller that they have suffered a defeat from and in addition it was a match at home. The match against Switzerland ended with a score of 1:2. Especially in the defence the Austrian team has shown some weak points. That’s why a special decision for the defence is waiting for the fans and experts. Alexsandar Dragovic will be the defence chief at the European championship but there is still the question who will be on the side of the kiev legionary. Maybe Kevin Wimmer will play right from the beginning in the national team of Austria after his strong performances in Tottenham instead of Martin Hinteregger. Alessandro Schöpf is a new player in the squad that also hopes for a debut. Austria has a great balance sheet against Albania. In six matches whom all have been duty matches, all six matches have been won and the end result of 17:1 speaks for itself. The defeat against Switzerland has been the only one in 2015. That’s why Austria is the clear favourite in this upcoming match.
Current Performance of Albania - Barely anybody would have expected this and now it has happened. Albania takes part at the European championship. They have played in a group with Portugal, Serbia, Denmark and Armenia and have reached a sensational second position. This great success is also because of the chief of the team Giovanni De Biasi. Since he trains with the national team of Albania they constantly improve their performance. The last international match in 2015 against Georgia ended in a drawn with a score of 2:2. In June 2015 they were able to win against France with a great score of 1:0. So this should be a warning signal for Austria. The stars of the Giovanni De Biasi eleven are Etrit Berisha (TW-Lazio Rom) and Elsaid Hysaj (RV- SSC Neapel). The last one is the most valuable player with a market value of nine million euros. All in all there are 23 legionnaires for the match against Austria that is a similar participation like their rival have. It will be exciting which team will be able to win this match.
Betting tip for this match - Some players of the host team are in a very good shape at the moment. Fuchs, Wimmer and Arnautovic cause a sensation in England at the moment. Forward player Marc Janko leads the scorer rank from the league of Switzerland. However Albania should not be underestimated. After they have qualified themselves for the European championship they have a lot of self-confidence and they have already shown in the past that they can cause trouble. All in all we still think that Austria will win this match. Our tip: Tip 1.
