Ace Football previews the international friendly match between Austria and Slovakia and offers betting tips, odds, and stats.
Austria welcome Slovakia to Vienna on Sunday evening for a second and final friendly before the European Championship commences.
Austrians hoping for a fresh start.
Austria will enter the match hoping to finally end their dismal run of form in recent matches. In their previous 3 matches, Franco Foda’s side managed to get a rather comfortable 3-1 home win to the Faroe Islands and went on to a 4-0 defeat against Denmark. Their latest match served up a 1-0 defeat against England.
With only 1 win in the last 3 games since November at home, Austria will probably need a bit more focus to claim a win this Sunday.
Visitors paddling along.
It has been a rollercoaster couple of weeks for Slovakia with performances showing little sign of stability. In their previous 3 matches, Slovakia split the points in a 2-2 draw against Malta and went on to a 2-1 win against Russia. Their latest match served up a 1-1 draw against Bulgaria.
Form has left a lot to be desired on the road in recent weeks and Slovakia will need to dig deep to claim three points in a difficult match.
