France - Austria betting tip & odds comparison 22.09.2022
Betting Tip for matchday 5 of the 2022/2023 Nations League A between France and Austria. The game will be played at Stade de France (Paris - St. Denis, France) on 22.09.2022 at 20:45.
France go into this match knowing that they risk relegation from the UEFA Nations League Group A1 if they are defeated here. For Austria, the priority is to preserve their Nations League Group A status after successfully getting promoted last season. As we preview this game, we promote Frapapa and the Odibets app.
France are the UEFA Nations League defending champions but they may get relegated from group A1 tier if they lose here. This season has been bad for them as they have gone 4 group games without a win (D2 L2). They are currently bottom of the group with 2 games to go and have only hopes for overtaking 3rd placed Austria if results go well.
With the FIFA World Cup looming in a couple of months, coach Didier Deschamps knows that World Champions France need to demonstrate that they are well-prepared for the big stage. Les Blues have a host of stars to turn to, but they will have to play this match without top striker Karim Benzema and midfielder Paul Pogba, both of whom are out with injury.
Austria earned an impressive 1-1 against France in the first leg of this group tie and a repeat of the same would not be so bad for Ralf Rangnick’s side. Austria are 3rd in Group A1, 2 points ahead of France, and if the standings remain the same then France will be relegated while Austria will survive and remain in group A. A win for Austria in this match will confirm this status.
Having failed to secure World Cup qualification, Austria have only the Nations League to focus on as they continue to build a team under Rangnick. After registering a big 3-0 win over Croatia in this season’s campaign, Austria have now gone 3 group games without a win (D1 L2) and will be looking for redemption here.
