France vs Austria UEFA Nations League Prediction by LeagueLane

France vs Austria 
UEFA Nations League 
Date: Thursday, 22 September 2022 
Kick-off at 19:45 UK/ 20:45 CET 
Venue: Stade de France. 

World champions France are already out of contention for a spot in the semifinals of the Nations League. But they do have the World Cup coming up in December and they will have to be at their absolute best for that. Likely, expect them to go after a huge win this Thursday against Austria. 

The French are not just defending world champions but they also managed to lift the previous version of the Nations League. However they are yet to register a win in the current edition of the competition and as of now they are placed bottom-most in their group. 

They let in the most number of goals in the group and scored the least as well. Moreover they  registered just two points against their name. 

As such they mathematically ruled out qualification to the next round of the tournament. But as mentioned earlier they are trying to build their confidence back up. 

In front of their home crowd this Thursday, they will possibly deliver one of their best performances in the tournament. 

Meanwhile Austria have nothing to boast of. They managed a single win till now and currently they are on a long stretch of winless performances. 

Moreover they fared quite poorly in previous head-to-head clashes and taking into account all these observations expect a convincing victory for France this Thursday.

France vs Austria Prediction & Analysis 

France are winless so far in the competition, but they did win seven of their past eleven overall fixtures, and they were unbeaten in 34 of their past 37 matches as well. 

In the process, they went on two separate four-game winning streaks, two separate five-fixture winning stretches, as well a seven-match winning run.
