EURO 2024 Predictions: Austria – Turkey (02-07-2024)

Austria was the team that positively surprised everyone in the EURO 2024 group stage. In a group with France, the Netherlands, and Poland, Austria finished first, beating the Netherlands 3-2 in the deciding game. France drew against Poland, leaving Austria in first place with 6 points.

Turkey, meanwhile, although second in the group, could have looked more convincing. They won the first group game against Georgia, one of the weakest teams in the group. Then, they were crushed by Portugal 0:3 and won the deciding match against the Czech Republic.

However, the Czech Republic received a red card in the first half, and Turkey only managed to score the winning goal in added time when the Czechs were looking for the winning goal in every possible way.

While the Turkish national team has scored many goals in its group matches, the playoffs are a very different football game. Here, the cost of a mistake is much higher, and there is no doubt that both teams will play a reserve game.

The Turks depend greatly on their young talents – Arda Guler and Kenan Yildiz. Both players are only 19 years old and have not played in a match of this importance. The lack of experience will undoubtedly be felt here, so the quality of play should be slightly lower than in the group stage.

The winner of this match will face the winner of the Romania-Netherlands pair in the quarter-finals. Austria is the group winner and the favourite for the eight-finals.


Unlike Turkey, Austria has a lot of experienced players, with captain Marko Arnautovic having played 112 matches for the national team. There are also players like Marcel Sabitzer, Christoph Baumgartner, and others.

Austria performed well defensively against France and looked solid against Poland. Only in the match against the Netherlands were more goals than usual. Last year, Austria was eliminated in the eighth final after extra time against future champions Italy.

This year, they have a great chance to go further. Defence is critical in the playoffs, and it would not be surprising if Turkey fails to make a mark here. The Austrians have much more experience, and ball control should also be on their side.

Turkey’s group stage results do not reflect the quality of its game, and in this match, we should see that it has many problems.
