          After an impressive showing from both sides in the qualifying for this summer’s tournament, they’ll both be looking for wins in these friendlies to put them on the front foot for the Euros.

          Austria finished Group F of their qualifying group second after eight games. The Boys picked up six wins, one draw and one loss, leaving them on 19 points, one point behind top of the group Belgium and nine points ahead of Sweden in third.

          For this summer’s tournament, Austria have been drawn in Group D where they’ll face Poland, the Netherlands and France as The Boys look to make it past the Round of 16 in their fourth ever appearance in the competition.

          Serbia also finished second in their group in qualifying for the Euros. In eight games in Group G, Serbia picked up four wins, two draws and two losses which left them on 14 points, four points behind Hungary but three points ahead of Montenegro.

          The Eagles will face Slovenia, Denmark and England in Group C. Serbia look to make an impression in their first appearance in the competition as Serbia.

          Austria and Serbia have met four times in their histoires, with the first meeting coming back in 2008. Serbia have the better record in the fixture with three wins in comparison to Austria’s singular win, with there yet to be a draw in the fixture.

          There has only been one game, back in 2009, that has had just one side on the scoresheet. The other three games have seen both teams score, with at least four goals a game.

There was another early goal for Austria through Xaver Schlager in the second minute but a penalty from Hakan Calhanoglu made it level before the half hour mark.

          Serbia bounced back the next time out against Montenegro. Aleksandar Mitrovic gave Serbia the lead in the ninth minute but Stevan Jovetic equalised before halftime. Mitrovic added another in the second half and was joined on the scoresheet by Dusan Tadic to give Serbia the 3 - 1 win.

          Milos Veljkovic’s first half goal gave Serbia the 1 - 0 lead over Bulgaria at halftime. Georgi Rusev equalised for Bulgaria before the hour mark and Kiril Despodov put Bulgaria ahead. However, late on, Srdan Babic found the back of the net to grab a 2 - 2 draw for Serbia.
