Austria will host Denmark in a UEFA Nations League fixture at the Ernst-Happel-Stadion in Vienna on Monday night. Both sides are heading into the contest on the back of impressive results in their opening match of the 2022-23 Nations League campaign. Austria thrashed Croatia 3-0, while Denmark got the better of the world champions France 2-1, earlier this month. The previous meeting between the two nations took place last year, with the game ending in a 1-0 victory for the Danes. Meanwhile Austria failed to qualify for the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar later this year after losing 2-1 to Wales in the qualification playoff semi-final. Denmark topped their qualification group to book a spot in Qatar.

On Friday, Austria thrashed 2018 world Cup finalists Croatia courtesy of goals from Marko Arnautovic, Michael Gregoritsch and Marcel Sabitzer. It was the perfect beginning for head coach Ralf Rangnick’s era. The Das Team topped their group in League B last season and have already shown promise under the former Manchester United boss. They have scored 14 times in their last five matches in all competitions. Meanwhile, failure to keep a clean sheet in their last five home games would be a cause of concern for Rangnick.  Austria will face Denmark on either side of a meeting with France this month. 

The Danes would be over the moon after their thrilling come-from-behind victory against the world champions. 2022 Champions League winner and Ballon d’Or contender Karim Benzema put the Blues ahead early in the second half. However substitute Andreas Cornelius netted a 20-minute brace, with his second effort coming in the 88th minute to clinch three points for Kasper Hjulmand’s side. The Red and Whites, who made it to the semi-finals of Euro 2020, head into Monday’s game having won 11 of their last 14 games in all competitions.
