Austria vs North Macedonia: Austria, who are being considered as one of the dark horses of Euro 2020, are set to take on North Macedonia, probably the least known team in the tournament this year, tonight at 3:00 pm GMT at Romania’s National Arena. The Burschen will be looking forward to giving their campaign a victorious start as they step on the field against the weakest team of the tournament ‘on-paper’.
But as they say, Football is played on the field and not on-paper and thus do not get shocked if North Macedonia, being the underdogs, beat the odds to register their first victory in a major European tournament, much like what Finland did last night against Denmark. Afterall, the modern football era is all about the rise of underdogs from the ashes.
Austria and North Macedonia have been placed in Group C, one of lighter groups of Euro 2020 featuring Netherlands and Ukraine (who shall face off each other later on tonight) alongside these two teams, which gives Austria, North Macedonia and Ukraine, a fair shot at qualifying for the knockout stage.

Austria will be heading on in Euro 2020 with probably the best team in their history. The likes of Laimer, Alaba, Dragovic and Sabitzer, who are regular starters in some of the best teams in Europe, this team can never be underestimated. It must be noted that Austria won both clashes when these sides met in Euro 2020 qualifiers.
This is the first time that North Macedonia have qualified for the European Championship. As mentioned by their captain Goran Pandev, who they shall be looking upon for goals , their team has created ‘made history’. Although Austria are hands down the favourites to win the match, North Macedonia will definitely make it very difficult for the opposition as they have the ‘fighter’s mentality’ innate in them. One thing is for sure, that Austria vs North Macedonia will not be a boring one-sided match.
