Match ended

Austria won, with great authority and demonstrating that they have more experience in this type of matches, managed to withstand the attacks of Macedonia and with good quality plays, could take the three points and a good goal difference, in this first match.

Macedonia proved to be a good team, but their inexperience cost them, as they gave away a lot when they should have kept the scoreboard and the debut in this cup was not so happy for the beginner team.

First half ended

The first half ended with two goals, but most of the time the game was cut, with a lot of friction and little action in the areas.

The first half began with a Macedonia that did not need to have much of the ball to achieve depth in their plays, but gradually lowered the offensive level, retreated and gave the ball to Austria, who with horizontal circulation, began to look for changes of pace of the ball and filter passes into the area. And that's how the first goal arrived.

Macedonia tried to react quickly, took possession of the ball and after a goalkeeper's mistake, equalized only 10 minutes after Austria's goal.

After the equalizer, the match was again dominated by Austria, who although they had the ball 66% of the time, did not generate real danger and the match ended again in a lot of rose and rough play.
