Historically, Austria has not had a ton of success in the European Championship. Their best finish was advancing to the round of 16 just three years ago, where they bowed out 2-1 to Italy in extra time. Austria is considered a longshot bet this time around, thanks in part to placement in arguably the group of death.

What Group Is Austria In?

Austria has been drawn into Group D, which is widely considered the toughest group top to bottom. None of the four competitors land worse than 28th (Poland) in the FIFA world rankings. France (third) and Netherlands (seventh) are among the strongest teams and enter the competition with legitimate title aspirations.

Up to three teams can advance into the knockout phase of the Euro 2024 bracket. During the group stage, teams earn points for wins (three) and draws (one). Whichever two teams accumulate the most points in the group will advance. Additionally, the four highest-scoring No. 3 finishers will advance. So, if Austria finishes third, their fate depends on how they compare to the third-place finishers in the other groups.

How Austria Qualified for Euro 2024

Austria was drawn into Group F, one of the five-team group, during qualifying. They compiled a 6-1-1 record there to easily advance in second place behind Belgium. The Belgians handed Austria their only loss of the group, 3-2. Austria compiled 17 goals and conceded 7 for a +10 differential.

Austria Likely Starting Lineup

Here’s a look at Austria’s likely starting 11:

  • GK Patrick Pentz
  • DF Philipp Lienhart
  • DF Phillipp Mwene
  • DF Maximilian Wober
  • DF Stefan Posch
  • MF Nicolas Seiwald
  • MF Christoph Baumgartner
  • MF Marcel Sabitzer
  • MF Florian Grillitsch
  • MF Konrad Laimer
  • FW Michael Gregoritsch

Notable Players

Two starters are missing from the team in GK Alexander Schlager and DF David Alaba. The latter captained the team during the run to the round of 16 in 2021. However, both sustained knee injuries and will miss the tournament.

That leaves the attacking crew as the team leaders in goals and caps for Austria’s Euro 2024 team. Michael Gregoritsch (53 caps, 15 goals), Marcel Sabitzer (78 caps, 17 goals), and Christoph Baumgartner (36 appearances, 13 goals) are some of the most decorated players on the team.

Florian Grillitsch (41 caps, 1 goal) and Stefan Lainer (39 caps, 2 goals) also bring a wealth of experience, the latter potentially coming off the bench.
