Kylian Mbappe will be raring to make an impact in the opening match.

Austria have become an excellent team under Ralf Rangnick’s leadership who are tough to break due to their tight defence and ability to press opponents into making mistakes. They had a successful qualifying campaign where they finished second behind Belgium to qualify for the Euros.

Now, Rangnick has the chance to create history with this team as they can upset the big boys after being drawn in Group D alongside Netherlands, Poland and France. They will open their account against France who are the favourites in this group.

France are one the favourites to win the Euro 2024 edition as they open their account against Austria in their opening match. Les Bleus had a good preparation in the friendly matches as they secured victory against Luxembourg in the first match followed by a goalless draw against Canada in the final friendly.

Didier Deschamps pulled a trick by recalling N’Golo Kante back to the squad as he can prove to be the difference maker in this tournament. With Mbappe and Antoine Griezmann in excellent form, Les Bleus have a genuine chance to win this time.

Austria (in all competitions): W-W-W-W-D

Player to Watch

Marcel Sabitzer (Austria)

Marcel Sabitzer had an incredible season with Borussia Dortmund as he helped the team reach the Champions League final where they eventually lost to Real Madrid. He scored four goals and provided three assists in the league.

Sabitzer has become a vital cog in Rangnick’s team as he fits efficiently to his style of play. He can press the opposition to maintain the pressure on them. He can also score some spectacular goals at the same time as he possesses the technique to score goals from outside the box.

Kylian Mbappe (France) 

Kylian Mbappe recently completed his dream move to Real Madrid after a successful time at PSG where he has written his name in the history. He had a successful season after winning the Ligue 1 with the French giants.

Mbappe boasts an impressive record with the French national team after netting 47 goals in 79 matches. With Austria maintaining a high line, he will be the one to keep an eye on as he can break the defensive trap with his pace.
