Germany vs Austria LIVE: Latest updates from Euro 2022 quarter-finals –

Voss-Tecklenburg expects ‘insanely intense’ Euro 2022 QF meeting with Austria

Germany meets Austria tonight in the second quarter-finals of Euro 2022 at the Brentford Community Stadium. The Germans arrived in England with low expectations but are title contenders after a perfect group stage. They defeated Denmark, Spain and Finland, won all three group games and finished first in Group B. The eight-time European champions will now be confident of reaching the semi-finals when they meet an overpowered Austrian side tonight.

Austria is one of the biggest outsiders in the competition. No one expected them to progress through the group stage but a confident performance against England on Matchday 1 showed they may have been underestimated. Despite losing that game 1-0, they responded by defeating Northern Ireland before beating Norway 1-0 in the crucial final group game to finish second behind England and reach the quarter-finals.

No side gained more ground in the group stage than Austria and they need to put in another determined performance if they are to upset Germany tonight. Many of Austria’s teams also play in the women’s Bundesliga, so both sides are familiar with each other and the winner will face either France or the Netherlands in the nest round.

Germany vs Austria

Austria suffered a penalty shoot-out after a goalless draw in their previous two knockout stages at the European Championship.

Five years ago they beat Spain 5-3 on penalties in the quarter-finals before losing 3-0 on penalties to Denmark in the round of 16.

Without a penalty shoot-out, Germany have lost just three of their 43 games at the European Championship with 34 wins and six draws.

Germany vs Austria

Martina Voss-Tecklenburg’s Germany is looking to lift the trophy for the ninth time having previously won eight of their ten appearances. Norway are the only other multiple champions of the competition with two.

They have triumphed at each of the previous six editions of Euros and finished in the top four in each of their first nine appearances before losing to Denmark in the quarter-finals in 2017.

Germany have also reached the quarter-finals in all four tournaments since their inception in 2009; They are one of only three sides, along with France and Sweden, to have done so.

“Hard to believe we made it”

Austria surprised the world when they reached the semi-finals of the Women’s European Championship in their first appearance in the competition in 2017, and they make it shine again.

They defeated two-time winners Norway to secure a place in the last eight, but boss Irene Fuhrmann is under no illusions about the challenge posed by Martina Voss-Tecklenburg’s Germany.

“It’s fantastic and it’s hard to believe that we made it through such a strong group to the quarter-finals,” said Fuhrmann.

“We are very realistic about our next opponents: Germany played very well – it will be tough.”

Player to watch: Nicole Billa

The 26-year-old scored Austria’s equalizer in their 3-1 defeat by Germany in their last international match and her goal against Norway on Matchday 3 not only sent Austria through to the knockout rounds, but also made them 300th in the Group stage of the European Championship final for women.

That crucial header against Norway was the striker’s first goal in her eight appearances at the European Championship.

The Hoffenheim striker ended the 2020/21 season with 23 goals as the top scorer in the women’s Bundesliga.

Players in focus: Alexandra Popp

The 31-year-old scored the opening goal after just eight minutes in Germany’s last meeting with Austria; a 3-1 win in October 2018.

Popp became just the second player, after England’s Beth Mead, to score in each of her side’s three group stage games at Women’s Euro 2022.

The striker could equal the national record of top scorer in four consecutive Women’s EURO games set by Heidi Mohr between 1989 and 1993.

Despite being the most experienced member of the Germany squad with 114 caps, this is Popp’s first Euro, having missed the 2013 and 2017 editions through injury.

Germany vs Austria

Austria became European champions for the first time five years ago, with the debutants eventually going out on penalties in the semi-finals after a goalless draw against Denmark.

Irene Fuhrmann’s side secured their place in a second consecutive finals by finishing in the top three runners-up in qualifying.

They accumulated 19 points from their eight games in Group G, finishing second behind France. Only against Les Bleues did they lose points with that 3-0 defeat at Guingamp in November 2020, the only game in which they conceded a goal.

Team change Germany vs. Austria

Germany coach Martina Voss-Tecklenburg makes four changes to the team that beat Finland 3-0 in their last Group B game.

In midfield, Lena Oberdorf, Felicitas Rauch and Lina Magull step in for Sara Doorsoun, Lena Lattwein and Linda Dallmann, while Sophia Kleinherne makes room for Kathrin Hendrich at the back.

The Austrians, who defeated Norway 1-0 in the last group game, only made one change. Defender Marina Georgieva replaces Viktoria Schnaderbeck from Arsenal FC.
