Austria is set to host Turkey in a thrilling 1/8 round match of the European Championship. This game is scheduled for Monday, July 2, 2024, at Leipzig Stadion. The kickoff is at 19:00 GMT. This match will be on neutral ground. Both teams are eager to win and advance to the quarterfinals. The stakes couldn’t be higher. Austria is slightly favored by bookmakers, but the odds are close. This shows the unpredictable nature of knockout football.

Austria – Form

Austria’s performance lately has been inconsistent. They suffered a 1-0 defeat to France in their last match. The game was at the Duesseldorf Arena, and an own goal by Maximilian Woeber was the decider. Before this, they claimed two away wins. They beat Poland 3-1 and then won a 3-2 match against the Netherlands on June 25th. These victories, especially the latter, show Austria’s resilience and ability to defy expectations.

Turkey – Form

Turkey’s form has also been mixed. Their latest match was a 2-1 win against the Czech Republic on June 26, 2024. Hakan Calhanoglu and Cenk Tosun scored the goals. This victory aligned with the balanced expectations from bookmakers. Before this win, Turkey lost 0-3 to Portugal. Yet, they managed a 3-1 victory over Georgia, demonstrating their capacity to bounce back. Mert Muldur and Arda Guler were among the scorers.

Austria – Turkey – Head to Head
