After being knocked out after extra-time by Italy in the last 16 of Euro 2020 under Franco Foda, Austria are in Germany this summer looking to at least match their achievements of three years ago, but this time under the stewardship of former Manchester United head coach Ralf Rangnick.

Below you can find my Euro 2024 Austria predictions, as well as all the relevant odds on Das Team ahead of UEFA's showpiece tournament.

Euro 2024 Predictions - Austria

  • Outright Winners @ 50/1
  • To Qualify From Group E @ 8/11
  • To Win Group D @ 8/1
  • Top Team Goalscorer - Michael Gregoritsch @ 2/1

It was a turbulent start to the Rangnick reign as the German lost four of his first six games in charge, but he has lost just one - against Belgium - of the subsequent 16, a record which helped them to finish as runners-up to the Red Devils in Group F of Euro 2024 qualifying.

Marcel Sabitzer was Austria's top scorer in qualifying with four goals, just ahead of Christoph Baumgartner and Michael Gregoritsch (both three), while the likes of David Alaba, Konrad Laimer and Maximilian Wober helped their nation to concede just seven times in eight games.

Their form has continued into 2023, with March wins against Slovakia (3-2) and Turkey (6-1) followed by victory over Serbia (2-1) and a stalemate with Switzerland (1-1) this month.

However, Rangnick will be without his captain Alaba in Germany after the Real Madrid defender failed to recover from injury.

Squad

Goalkeepers: Patrick Pentz (Brondby), Heinz Lindner (Union Saint-Gilloise), Niklas Hedl (Rapid Wien)

Defenders: Stefan Posch (Bologna), Max Wober (Borussia Monchengladbach), Philipp Lienhart (Freiburg), Kevin Danso (Lens), Phillipp Mwene (Mainz), Flavius Daniliuc (Red Bull Salzburg), Gernot Trauner (Feyenoord), Leopold Querfeld (Rapid Wien)

Midfielders: Marcel Sabitzer (Borussia Dortmund), Florian Grillitsch (Hoffenheim), Christoph Baumgartner (RB Leipzig), Konrad Laimer (Bayern Munich), Florian Kainz (Cologne), Nicolas Seiwald (RB Leipzig), Romano Schmid (Werder Bremen), Alexander Prass (Sturm Graz), Matthias Seidl (Rapid Vienna)

Forwards: Marko Arnautovic (Inter Milan), Michael Gregoritsch (Freiburg), Andreas Weimann (West Brom), Patrick Wimmer (Wolfsburg), Marco Grull (Rapid Wien), Maximilian Entrup (TSV Hartberg)

Euro 2024 Odds

Outright Winners @ 50/1

Greece 2004 - that's what the likes of Austria will be using as inspiration this summer. Rangnick's side won't be playing on home soil like the Greeks did 20 years ago, but as a neighboring country and with 12 Bundesliga-based players, they won't be feeling too unfamiliar in their surroundings.

To Qualify From Group E @ 8/11

In a group with France, the Netherlands and Poland, Austria are third-favourites to qualify, ahead of the latter. Four points was enough to finish as one of the four best third-placed teams at Euro 2020, with Ukraine sneaking the final spot with three points.

If Austria can beat Poland in their second game, a point might be all they require against the Netherlands on June 25.

Euro 2024 Austria to qualify from Group D @ 8-11

To Win Group D @ 8/1

In a group with a couple of traditional European powerhouses in France and the Netherlands, it would be a real surprise if Austria were to finish top, with Les Bleus heavily fancied to win Group D.

Top Team Goalscorer - Michael Gregoritsch @ 2/1

Arnautovic is one of the biggest names in this Austria squad but Freiburg forward Gregoritsch looks likely to get the nod ahead of the maverick Inter attacker at centre-forward.

Gregoritsch only struck seven times in 32 Bundesliga outings for his club side last season but netted a further five in the Europa League and scored one at Euro 2020.

The 30-year-old tops the team goalscorer market for Austria with Arnautovic behind him on 4/1, and the likes of Sabitzer (5/1) and Baumgartner (6/1) further back in the running.
