Austria is another with Rangnick

Arnautovic marcó el primer gol de Austria.


There is nothing like opening with victory in your debut on the bench. Austria, disappointed after being left out of the World Cup, retaliated with a Indisputable victory away from home (0-3), against a Croatia that was far from the image it usually shows. The match was the Rangnick’s debut on the Austrian benchafter his last adventure at United. Modric started the game on the bench and jumped onto the field when everything was decided. Arnautovic, Gregoritsch and Sabitzer scored.

The game started very differently from what the final score reflected. Croatia did a lot of damage every time Brozovic got the ball. The interista’s diagonals disarmed the Austrians over and over again and the midfielder found his best partner in Pasalic. In the first 25 minutes the player from Atalanta was able to open the scoring with two clear chances to which another one from Kramaric was added. That the result did not move was solely and exclusively a matter of luck.

Shield/Flag Croatia

Until here arrived Croatia. After forgiving so much, it was Austria’s turn to strike. And the truth is that it did not cost them much to stand in the rival goal against a practically non-existent midfield, which seemed to yearn for Modric’s entry. The clearest sign came when in minute 41, Arnautovic picked up a ball in three quarters, advanced without opposition and after entering the area, beat Ivusic. Austria went ahead with their first shot on goal.

Croatia needed Modric after the break, but Dalic didn’t see fit. Meanwhile, Gregoritsch, who had just entered the field, forgave the 0-2, only against Ivusic. The Augsburg striker lamented, not knowing that in a matter of minutes luck would smile on him. An attack led by Sabitzer ended in Wober’s center for the striker to make it 0-2. And the punishment would be even greater three minutes later against an apathetic Croatia. This time it was his own Sabitzer who did not think twice to shoot from outside the area, adjusted to the post.

Shield/Flag Austria

It was at that moment, with 0-3 on the scoreboard, when Dalic decided to give the witness to Modric. The madridista had 32 minutes to go but the slab was insurmountable. Although Croatia began to command in the field, did not manage to disarm an Austria that was limited to being together behind and not take risks in attack. The visitors did not notice Alaba’s absence. With this result Austria is placed leader of the group and warns sailors: this selection is another with Rangnick.
