Preview: Austria Under-17s vs. Denmark Under-17s - prediction, team news, lineups

Sports Mole previews Sunday's European Under-17s Championship clash between Austria Under-17s and Denmark Under-17s, including predictions, team news and possible lineups.

Austria Under-17s and Denmark Under-17s will both be looking to advance to the European Under-17 Championship quarter-finals when they go head-to-head at the Paralimni Stadium.

Both teams have collected four points from their two matches, with Austria sitting just above Denmark on goal difference.

Match preview

After playing out a goalless draw with Croatia, Austria went on to claim their first win of the tournament in Thursday's clash with Wales.

Mauro Hammerle opened the scoring to give his country a narrow half-time lead, before Valentin Zabransky and Adrian Riegel grabbed a goal apiece to wrap up a comfortable 3-0 victory.

After making an unbeaten start, Austria will head into the final group game with a two-point cushion over third-placed Croatia.

As a result, Austria know that a win will secure them a place in the knockout rounds for the third time, while a draw may not be enough if Croatia win because it would result in a mini-league between the three tied teams which would see them miss out on goals scored.

Martin Scherb's side will head into Sunday's fixture in a confident mood after winning seven and drawing four of their last 11 matches since suffering their most recent defeat to Romania in June 2023.

Denmark kicked off the tournament with a 2-0 win over Wales, before they had to settle for a point in Thursday's meeting with Croatia.

Ajax forward Lasse Abildgaard saw his opener cancelled out by Croatia's Patrice Covic, leaving the two sides level at the half-time interval.

After falling behind in the 47th minute, Denmark hit back through Roberto Risnaes's 60th-minute strike, ensuring that the contest finished as a 2-2 draw.

The Danes know that they must simply avoid defeat to advance, but they will be keen to claim a win that would see them progress as group winners.

Like their opponents, Denmark have proven to be a tough team to beat, having won five and drawn three of their last eight matches since losing to Georgia in October 2023.

Team News

Having kept consecutive clean sheets, Austria goalkeeper Marcel Kurz will retain his place in between the posts, while Zabransky and Magnus Dalpiaz will resume their centre-back partnership.

While Scherb is unlikely to make too many changes, he could be tempted to recall Borussia Dortmund youngster Thierry Fidjeu-Tazemeta.

Regel may have to settle for a place among the substitutes despite coming off the bench to score Austria's third goal against Wales.

As for Denmark, Graham Ankamafio could be brought into the backline after featuring as a half-time substitute in the draw with Croatia.

Mikkelsen may decide to bring some fresh legs into midfield, with Noah Lassen pushing to start against Austria on matchday three.

Arsenal youngster Chido Obi is expected to lead the line, having netted nine goals in 14 appearances for Denmark's Under-17s side.

Austria Under-17s possible starting lineup:
Kurz; Roka, Zabransky, Dalpiaz, Sorg; Music, Spalt; Hammerle, Fidjeu-Tazemeta, Adejenughure

Denmark Under-17s possible starting lineup:
Breum-Harild; Lutzhoft, Ankamafio, Markmann, Andersen; Moalem, Lassen, Hojer; Abildgaard, Risnaes, Obi

SM words green background

We say: Austria Under-17s 1-1 Denmark Under-17s

The two nations will both carry unbeaten runs in Sunday's fixture, and we think that the two in-form sides will have to settle for a point in Sunday's final group match.
