Although both of these teams have been drawn alongside the Netherlands and the Ukraine, they will both fancy their chances of sneaking through to the knock-out round.
Austria’s side isn’t blessed with talent, however, the versatility and quality of David Alaba gives them an edge. They’ve also got a tall, powerful striker in the shape of Sasa Kalajdzic, who has hit the ground running in the Bundesliga.
North Macedonia weren’t expected to qualify for the tournament, however, they’ve chalked up a number of notable results in recent years. Led by the vastly experienced Goran Pandev, they will be tough to beat and are likely to cause a few more upsets along the way. When these two sides last faced one another, it ended 2-1 to the Austrians, and we could see a similar result once again.
Austria conceded twice to Scotland, allowed Northern Ireland to find a way through and couldn’t even keep a clean sheet against the Faroe Islands.Both Teams to Score - Yes - 5/4 Paddy Power & Various Bookies
