Austria’s National Football Team Heads to Azerbaijan with Confidence Following Narrow Defeat Against Belgium

After the narrow 2:3 defeat in the European Championship qualification against Belgium, Austria’s national football team is traveling to Azerbaijan. Without any concerns.

Ralf Rangnick’s team missed the first match point for the final European Championship qualification against the group favorites Belgium in the sold-out Ernst Happel Stadium in Vienna. The ÖFB team is still missing a win to book their ticket to Germany – more precisely, two points from the remaining two away games against Azerbaijan (Monday) and Estonia (November 16th) are enough.

“Expenses taken upon themselves!” ÖFB noble fans in the stadium

The European Championship qualification could already be completed on Monday. The Rangnick team will be playing in Baku, the capital of Azerbaijan. And that only around four weeks after the conflict over the autonomous region of Nagorno-Karabakh came into focus again. Azerbaijan conquered the area from Armenia in a one-day war, and the Armenian population has been expelled ever since.

ÖFB-Kicker: “Now we’ll fix the European Championships on Monday”

The ÖFB team will compete on Monday in Azerbaijan’s capital Baku, just around 300 kilometers as the crow flies from Nagorno-Karabakh. The local football association had no safety concerns before the trip to the Caspian Sea, as it said in a statement to the “APA”. “According to the current assessment of the security authorities, the situation in the Nagorno-Karabakh region has little influence on the security situation in the rest of the region, including Baku,” the association said. “The situation is being monitored closely,” the ÖFB continued. There is constant communication with the Ministry of the Interior, UEFA and the Azerbaijani Association. 400 Austrian away fans are expected at the duel in the Tofiq Bahramov Stadium.
