Austria vs Turkey LIVE!

The quarter-final lineup at Euro 2024 has now been completed after a thrilling last round-of-16 tie in Leipzig. Turkey came out on top 2-1 against Austria in the teeming rain at Red Bull Arena, with Merih Demiral scoring the fastest knockout goal in European Championship history after only 57 seconds on Tuesday night.

He doubled his tally in similar fashion just before the hour mark, though half-time substitute Michael Gregoritsch hit back swiftly through another set-piece to tee up a grandstand finish. The Freiburg forward then thought he had dramatically forced extra time with a last-gasp effort, only to be denied by an absolutely sensational save from Turkey goalkeeper Mert Gunok that drew comparisons with England legend Gordon Banks’ famous stop to deny the iconic Pele at the 1970 World Cup in Mexico.

Austria’s wait for a first quarter-final appearance at a major international tournament since 1954 goes on, while Turkey are through to the last eight for the first time since 2008 as they prepare to face the Netherlands in Berlin on Saturday evening after Ronald Koeman’s side brushed aside Romania 3-0 in Munich earlier on Tuesday.

Austria 1-2 Turkey

21:43 , George Flood

Austria 1-2 Turkey

21:42 , George Flood

82 mins: Kokcu - who is banned for the quarter-finals if Turkey hold on - is in a lot of pain here and can’t continue.

He’s replaced by Irfan Kahveci.

21:37 , George Flood

77 mins: Bardakci rises highest to beat Arnautovic to a delivery as Austria earn a corner.

Austria 1-2 Turkey

21:34 , George Flood

72 mins: The rain is really coming down hard in Leipzig.

Demiral with some brilliant defending as he repels a dangerous Austrian cross.

Both of these nations are going to be in trouble with Uefa, given the amount of cups continually being hurled at the respective corner-takers by fans.

Really juvenile stuff.

Austria 1-2 Turkey


69 mins: Gregoritsch is a big threat for Austria and his latest header is gratefully claimed by Gunok.

GOAL! Austria 1-2 Turkey | Michael Gregoritsch 66'

21:25 , George Flood

66 mins: Austria hit back quickly and it’s game on once again!

Sabitzer’s corner from the right - where he is also pelted with cups - is flicked on by Posch and crashed in by half-time substitute Gregoritsch at the back post.

This is turning into a thriller...

Austria 0-2 Turkey

21:25 , George Flood

63 mins: Lienhart with a nervous look at the referee after making a risky challenge on a yellow card. It’s a free-kick only.

He’s now gone off, with Rangnick sending on Max Wober and Florian Grillitsch in response to that second Turkish goal.

Laimer also goes off.

Austria 0-2 Turkey


60 mins: There was a bit of a delay after the goal due to the sheer number of cups hurled in Guler’s direction there.

A Uefa official has been dispatched to remove them.

Austria could be in a spot of bother for that.

The rain is now teeming down in Leipzig.

Guler turns round to shush the Austrian fans.

GOAL! Austria 0-2 Turkey | Merih Demiral 59'

21:18 , George Flood

59 mins: It’s that man again!

Guler is pelted with cups from the stands before delivering a brilliant corner that is met firmly by the soaring Demiral, who plants a header past Pentz and into the back of the net.

Is that the knockout blow?

Austria 0-1 Turkey

21:18 , George Flood

58 mins: Borussia Dortmund’s Salih Ozcan is on for Turkey.

Off goes Yuksek.

Austria 0-1 Turkey

21:17 , George Flood

56 mins: Almost a great chance for Kadioglu to double the Turkish lead, but it quickly passes him by.

We should mention that Austria centre-back Lienhart was booked a few minutes ago for taking out Guler.

Austria 0-1 Turkey

21:14 , George Flood

55 mins: Turkey are really under pressure here and a key block keeps out a strike from Posch.

The offside flag then halts Arnautovic in his tracks.

Austria 0-1 Turkey

21:13 , George Flood

52 mins: This is much more like the high-tempo and relentless Austria team that we saw during the group stage.

Laimer dances his way into the box before slipping as he shot on the increasingly greasy surface and rifling wide.

Austria 0-1 Turkey

21:10 , George Flood

51 mins: A crucial save from Gunok to come out and deny Arnautovic from close range!

Austria should really be level.

Austria 0-1 Turkey

21:09 , George Flood

49 mins: A Turkish attack quickly peters out and Austria are racing forward again, looking for Gregoritsch inside the box.

This time he guides a tough header well off target.

Austria 0-1 Turkey

21:08 , George Flood

47 mins: Freiburg forward Gregoritsch is straight into the action, but can’t hit the target after a hooked ball from the byline by Baumgartner.

Replays show that ball had clearly gone out before being crossed in.

An early second-half warning for Turkey nonetheless.

They cannot afford to get complacent.

Austria 0-1 Turkey


Back underway in Leipzig!

Rangnick has made two half-time changes for Austria.

Mwene and Schmid are replaced by Alexander Prass and Michael Gregoritsch.

Austria 0-1 Turkey


It’s been quite some tournament for early goals...

Austria 0-1 Turkey

20:50 , George Flood


A terrific half for Turkey, who lead at the break following Merih Demiral’s goal with just 57 seconds on the clock.

They’ve been a real threat on the counter, with Arda Guler shining.

Austria have just shaded it possession-wise after a shocking start but with nothing to show for it, other than a few misses from Baumgartner.

Rangnick will be demanding so much more from his side after the break.


Austria 0-1 Turkey

20:49 , George Flood

46 mins: Another chance for Baumgartner just before the break, but he’s not really expecting a low cross from the right flank to reach him and prods wide with his left boot under pressure from Demiral.

Should have done better. But you get the sense he will be extremely important if Austria are to rescue this.

Austria 0-1 Turkey

20:47 , George Flood

45 mins: Austria see off two dangerous deliveries into their box before driving forward on the counter.

One minute of added time signalled.

Austria 0-1 Turkey

20:44 , George Flood

42 mins: Yuksek with a foul on Baumgartner and he joins Kokcu in having his name taken.

Both players will miss the quarter-finals if Turkey advance.

Montella would be running out of players to face the Netherlands if this result holds and the cards continue to fly.

Austria 0-1 Turkey

20:43 , George Flood

40 mins: Juventus starlet Yildiz with a not-so-subtle shove on Posch inside the Austria box, bringing an end to Turkey’s latest attacking push as half-time looms.

It’s been a very strong performance from Vincenzo Montella’s men so far.

Austria 0-1 Turkey


38 mins: Austria winger Schmid brings down Kadioglu and joins Kokcu in the book.

That’s a first yellow card of the tournament for the Werder Bremen star.

Austria 0-1 Turkey


36 mins: A long throw-in from the right causes panic in the Turkey defence, with Danso and Arnautovic both flicking on hopefully inside the box before it’s booted high into the air by Muldur and Gunok comes out to confidently claim.

Austria 0-1 Turkey

20:36 , George Flood

33 mins: Deafening whistles and jeers any time Austria have a prolonged period of possession.

Again they can’t fashion any sort of a chance despite some encouraging build-up play.

Guler looks an absolute class act for Turkey once again.

The touch, pass, pace and ingenuity is quite something.

Hard to believe he’s only 19.

Austria 0-1 Turkey

20:34 , George Flood

31 mins: The tempo has definitely dropped in the last few minutes or so.

Austria are starting to become very frustrated, having created next to nothing since Baumgartner’s early chances.

Austria 0-1 Turkey

20:30 , George Flood

27 mins: A nice no-look cross there from Austria skipper Arnautovic into the six-yard box, but Schmid can’t connect before it’s safely gathered by Turkey goalkeeper Gunok.

Arnautovic is not happy.

Austria 0-1 Turkey


26 mins: Turkey look very dangerous every time they come forward here.

Yilmaz charges his way into the box but he can’t pick out Yildiz with a lofted pass.

Austria 0-1 Turkey

20:27 , George Flood

24 mins: A chance for Demiral to double his tally!

Guler’s latest corner from the right is delivered to the front post, where it bounces off the shoulder of the former Juventus defender and goes wide.

Austria 0-1 Turkey

20:26 , George Flood

22 mins: Still such a frenetic pace to this game with several fouls as both sides wrestle for control, even if the chances have subsided for now.

It’s Turkey’s turn now to apply some pressure, forcing a couple of corners back-to-back after a dangerous free-kick.

Austria 0-1 Turkey

20:23 , George Flood

19 mins: Turkey have a hell of a threat on the break in Yildiz and Guler, the first teenage duo to start a knockout game together at the European Championship since the 1960s.

Real Madrid starlet Guler charges forward on the counter-attack there before trying the spectacular to catch out Pentz but sending an effort well wide from near halfway.

Austria 0-1 Turkey

20:20 , George Flood

17 mins: Austria are monopolising possession now and there are loud whistles from the Turkish fans.

Goalscorer Demiral does well to contain Arnautovic as another cross is punted into the box.

Austria 0-1 Turkey

20:19 , George Flood

The goal that gave Turkey the lead with just 57 seconds on the clock in Leipzig.

Absolutely dreadful defending from Austria. Rangnick will be seething...

Austria 0-1 Turkey

20:17 , George Flood

14 mins: Another warning for Austria there as the fleet-footed Guler gets away from his man before drilling a low effort that is seen off by goalkeeper Pentz.

You can’t take your eyes off this for a second!

Austria 0-1 Turkey

20:16 , George Flood

12 mins: Another bout of sustained pressure from Austria, who look to ask questions of this Turkish defence inside the box.

That is until a foul in the air halts their momentum in search of a quick equaliser.

Austria 0-1 Turkey

20:14 , George Flood

10 mins: Kokcu cuts down the tricky Baumgartner and receives the first caution of the evening from Portuguese referee Artur Soares Dias.

He was one of the 10 Turkish players at risk of suspension tonight and will miss the quarter-finals if his country get there.

Sabitzer rifles the resulting free-kick into the wall from a great position.

Austria 0-1 Turkey

20:11 , George Flood

8 mins: This already has the feel of a stone-cold major tournament classic early on in Leipzig.

The tempo is just remarkable from both teams, there will be chances galore.

Mwene with a woeful piece of control, drawing ironic cheers from the Turkish fans.

Austria 0-1 Turkey


5 mins: This has been an absolutely astonishing start in Leipzig.

Austria, wounded by that early setback, have already twice gone close to equalising, with Baumgartner firing wide before then trying to slide in at the back stick and colliding with the post.

He thinks he was fouled, but it’s not a penalty.

Hard to keep up already!

GOAL! Austria 0-1 Turkey | Merih Demiral 1'

20:04 , George Flood

1 min: A dream start for Turkey!

Austria - usually so well-organised - make an absolute hash of trying to clear an early corner and Demiral is on hand to make them pay.

What an opening to this game. Wow.

Austria 0-0 Turkey

20:03 , George Flood

1 min: An end-to-end start in noisy Leipzig!

Austria are almost in through Arnautovic before at the other end Seiwald is forced to concede a corner under pressure from Yilmaz.

Austria vs Turkey

20:01 , George Flood

Underway in this final last-16 tie!

Shock Group D winners Austria have not reached a major tournament quarter-final since all the way back in 1954, while Group F runners-up Turkey last did so in 2008.

Who will advance tonight?

Austria vs Turkey


Here come the teams in Leipzig, where both nations are very well supported indeed again as expected.

Time for the national anthems, with Turkey up first...

Turkey out for revenge after Austria friendly thrashing

19:53 , George Flood

It finished 3-0 to the Netherlands in Munich earlier after another late goal from Donyell Malen, so it will definitely be Ronald Koeman’s side that await the winners of tonight’s final last-16 tie in the quarter-finals in Berlin on Saturday.

How I’m sure the Dutch would love another crack at Austria after that shock defeat in Group D last week.

Turkey, meanwhile, will not want reminding of the last time they faced Austria, having been thrashed 6-1 in a heavily one-sided friendly back in March.

Arda Guler among TEN Turkey players at risk of suspension


Already missing Hakan Calhanoglu and Samet Akaydin tonight, Turkey, thanks to that incredibly bad-tempered win over the Czech Republic, have no fewer than TEN players who will be suspended for the quarter-finals if they are booked tonight and Vincenzo Montella’s side progress to face the Netherlands in Berlin on Saturday.

That list includes young talisman Arda Guler, plus Kaan Ayhan, Ugurcan Cakir, Zeki Celik, Mert Gunok, Orkun Kokcu, Mert Muldur, Salih Ozcan, Kenan Yildiz and Ismail Yuksek.

Everyone needs to be on their best behaviour...

Three Turkey changes with captain Hakan Calhanoglu banned


As expected, it’s straight back into the Turkey defence following suspension for Abdulkerim Bardakci tonight, with Samet Akaydin banned.

Orkun Kokcu comes into midfield with influential captain Hakan Calhanoglu also suspended, while Kaan Ayhan also gets the nod as Salih Ozcan drops to the bench in something of a tactical reshuffle from head coach Vincenzo Montella.

Four Austria changes as Christoph Baumgartner and Konrad Laimer start

19:13 , George Flood

So that’s four changes made by former Manchester United interim boss Ralf Rangnick to the Austria side that stunned the Netherlands 3-2 in Berlin last week to go through to the last 16 as surprise Group D winners.

Christoph Baumgartner and Konrad Laimer both come back into the midfield, with Patrick Wimmer suspended and Florian Grillitsch dropped to the bench.

There are also two changes in defence, with Kevin Danso replacing Max Wober and Phillipp Mwene having recovered from illness to oust Alexander Prass at left-back.

Philipp Lienhart is fit to start at centre-back, but there’s no Gernot Trauner with Leopold Querfeld on the bench.


Turkey lineup

18:57 , George Flood

Starting XI: Gunok, Muldur, Demiral, Bardakci, Kadioglu, Ayhan, Yuksek, Guler, Kokcu, Yildiz, Yilmaz

Subs: Celik, Yokuslu, Akturkoglu, Tosun, Yazici, Bayindir, Kaplan, Ozcan, Kahveci, Cakir, Kilicsoy, Akgun, Yildirim

Austria lineup

18:56 , George Flood

Starting XI: Pentz, Posch, Danso, Lienhart, Mwene, Seiwald, Schmid, Baumgartner, Laimer, Sabitzer, Arnautovic

Subs: Lindner, Wober, Prass, Grillitsch, Gregoritsch, Hedl, Querfeld, Kainz, Daniliuc, Seidl, Weimann, Entrup, Grull

Netherlands heading through while England could await


Make that 2-0 to the Dutch in Munich thanks to Donyell Malen and a stunning assist from Cody Gakpo, so it will definitely be the Oranje that await for either Austria or Turkey in Berlin on Saturday night.

England will also have been keeping a close eye on tonight’s closing last-16 fixtures after their extraordinary comeback to beat Slovakia in Gelsenkirchen on Sunday.

The Three Lions certainly won’t be taking Switzerland for granted at the weekend, but if they get through that test then it will be one of the Netherlands, Austria or Turkey awaiting in the semi-finals of the so-called ‘easier’ half of the Euro 2024 draw.


Netherlands or Romania await tonight's winners in quarter-final tie


The winners of tonight’s final last-16 tie will meet the winners of the penultimate clash between Romania and the Netherlands in the last quarter-final match in Berlin on Saturday night.

That match remains ongoing, with the Dutch currently leading 1-0 with less than 20 minutes to play in Munich thanks to Cody Gakpo’s excellent first-half goal.

The Liverpool forward has also seen a second - which would have been his fourth of the tournament - ruled out by VAR.

Could be it be a swift Austrian reunion for Ronald Koeman’s side this weekend?

I certainly wouldn’t mind seeing a repeat of last week’s five-goal Group D cracker.


18:23 , George Flood

But that’s certainly not to say that the support for tournament surprise package Austria hasn’t also been fantastic.

Germany’s neighbours are also very well-represented across the border and made themselves heard plenty during the group stage.

We should be in for quite the noise in Leipzig later!

Could it even rival that unforgettable atmosphere for Turkey’s Group F opener against Georgia in Dortmund, still probably the game of the tournament so far?


Turkey fans set to create another memorable atmosphere

18:10 , George Flood

Other than the hosts of course, I think it’s fair to say that Turkey have definitely been the best-supported nation at Euro 2024 so far.

Plenty of fans have made the trip, while there is a large Turkish population in Germany.

It has made for a remarkable atmosphere at all of their games so far, with tonight surely no different in Leipzig...


Predicted lineups

17:58 , George Flood

Here is how Standard Sport sees both sides lining up in Leipzig tonight...

Predicted Austria XI: Pentz; Posch, Danso, Lienhart, Mwene; Seiwald, Grillitsch; Schmid, Sabitzer, Baumgartner; Arnautovic

Predicted Turkey XI:Gonuk; Muldur, Bardakci, Demiral, Kadioglu; Ozcan, Yuksek; Guler, Kocku, Akturkoglu; Yilmaz

Austria vs Turkey prediction

17:48 , George Flood

Hopes are high for a knockout classic but the depleted Turkish team might just fall short despite the impressive backing they have received in Germany.

Austria to win after extra-time, 2-1.

Turkey team news: Hakan Calhanoglu and Samet Akaydin banned

17:47 , George Flood

Group F runners-up Turkey have been dealt a massive blow with the absence of Inter Milan midfielder Hakan Calhanoglu for tonight’s meeting in Leipzig.

Their influential captain has also incurred an automatic one-match ban for two yellow cards, the second picked up in their narrow win over the 10-man Czech Republic in Hamburg last week, as has Fenerbahce defender Samet Akaydin.

Galatasaray’s Abdulkerim Bardakci should line up alongside Merih Demiral at centre-back tonight after his own return from suspension, while the likes of Kerem Akturkoglu or Irfan Kahveci could be called upon in midfield.

Former Everton and Crystal Palace striker Cenk Tosun could also earn a start in attack this evening after his dramatic last-gasp winner off the bench last time out.


Austria team news: Patrick Wimmer suspended

17:38 , George Flood

Shock Group D winners Austria go into tonight’s knockout clash without the services of Wolfsburg winger Patrick Wimmer, who is suspended after picking up his second yellow card of the tournament so far in last week’s stunning 3-2 upset of the Netherlands in Berlin.

Cautions are not wiped until after the quarter-finals at this tournament.

Konrad Laimer and Christoph Baumgartner will compete to replace Wimmer, although both could come into the starting team tonight as head coach Ralf Rangnick also ponders whether or not to keep Romano Schmid on the opposite flank.

At the back, Gernot Trauner and Phillipp Mwene have both missed training this week through injury and illness respectively, with Philipp Lienhart and Leopold Querfeld also struggling.

Kevin Danso and Alexander Prass will be hoping to start in defence.
