Austria-Azerbaijan, the probable formations

Austria and Azerbaijan will face each other on the first day of qualifying for the upcoming European Championships. Kickoff at 8:45 p.m. at the TGW Arena. The hosts are called for redemption after relegation to the Nations League second division, while the guests are looking for their sixth consecutive victory in all competitions.

Rangnick will have to do without the injured Arnautovic. Leading the attack will be Gregoritsch with Sabitzer and Baumgartner at the back. In front of Lindner space for the trio of Wober, Alaba and Lienhart. De Biasi, on the other hand, is expected to rely on Qurbanly as the lone forward with Kokcu, Isayev and Sheydayev in the three-quarter. In midfield, trust the Almeida- Mahmudov pair.
