The Austrians downed Serbia 2-0, but dropped a 3-1 decision to Denmark. On paper, this should be another game where Germany can impose its will. Austria’s roster includes Bundesliga players such as former Bayern Munich left-back and current Werder Bremen defender Marco Friedl, Hoffenheim attacking midfielder Christoph Baumgartner and center-back Stefan Posch, SC Freiburg center-back Philipp Lienhart, and FC Augsburg’s Kevin Danso.
The Austrians are certainly no pushover, but Germany has been stellar. Led by exciting SC Freiburg forward Luca Waldschimidt (four goals), FC Augsburg winger Marco Richter (three goals), RB Leipzig outside-back Lukas Klosterman, Bayer Leverkusen center-back Jonathan Tah, Hertha Berlin midfielder Arne Maier, Werder Bremen midfielder Maximilian Eggestein, Borussia Dortmund’s Mahmoud Dahoud, and Schalke 04 goalkeeper Alexander Nübel.
At a minimum, you are getting to see some excellent young talent — albeit with no Bayern youngsters — on display if you check this contest out. If you’re looking to watch the Euro U-21 Championships, Live Soccer TV can tell you where to find them on television or streaming in your country.
