A favorable precedent for the national team of the Bologna center forward, who have lost only 3 times out of 10 matches
It’s playoff time for Qatar 2022. The last places for the European national teams in the World Cup remain to be assigned. Wales and Austria meet in the semi-finals: kick-off on Thursday at 20.45. Page’s team drew 1-1 with Belgium in the last official match, Arnautovic and his teammates won 4-1 with Moldova.
Wales finished second in group E behind the Red Devils with 15 points, third the Czech Republic with 14. Page’s group had four wins, three draws and one defeat in the group stage: knockout against De Bruyne and teammates in March 2021. So far they have collected six consecutive useful results: three successes and three evens. Foda’s group finished third in Group F behind Denmark and Scotland: five wins, one draw and four defeats. Sabitzer’s side have scored eight goals in their two most recent games against Israel and Moldova. The winner of the Cardiff City Stadium match will face Scotland in the playoff final. The other semifinal scheduled with Ukraine has been suspended.
There are ten total matches between Wales and Austria. The precedents are in favor of the red and white: five wins against three victories of the opponents, two draws. The national teams met in the group stage for qualifying for Russia 2018. At the Cardiff City Stadium the hosts won 1-0: Woodburn’s goal was decisive. Even for 2-2 away. The last time Austria beat Wales was in 2005 (1-0, Aufhauser goal), during the 2006 qualifiers for France. A very balanced match is expected. Page’s group faced Italy in the European Championship during the groups: qualified for the round of 16 of the competition, Wales were eliminated by Denmark (4-0). Now the playoff semifinal to gain access to the next World Cup. Looking forward to the decisive challenge with Scotland.
