Poland vs Austria - LIVE!

Austria got their hopes of a last-16 place at Euro 2024 back on track with a much-deserved 3-1 win over Poland. An opening defeat to France had left Ralf Rangnick’s side under pressure to deliver in Berlin and they duly did, as the superb Christoph Baumgartner restored their lead in the second-half and Marko Arnautovic effectively sealing the victory from the penalty spot with ten minutes to go.

That came after Austria had been pegged back heading into the break, having made a fast start. Gernot Trauner headed them into an early lead, but Poland responded well and were level by half-time, as Krzysztof Piatek kept his cool from close range. Robert Lewandowski, still not fully fit after injury, was introduced on the hour mark as Poland pushed for a win that would have boosted their own qualification hopes, but they are now facing an early exit, sitting on two defeats ahead of a final Group C assignment against France.

Austria, meanwhile, know a draw against the Netherlands will almost certainly be enough for them to progress, with a win earning them a top-two finish.

FT: Poland 1-3 Austria

And that’s job done for Austria.

Really impressive performance, so strong with and without the ball.

Poland were decent themselves, well in the match for more than an hour, but Austria deserved all three points.


Poland 1-3 Austria

18:54 , Matt Verri

90+3 mins: Saying that, Poland should have pulled one back.

Brilliant ball to the back post, Grosicki is free and he volleys it well wide. Had so much time.

18:52 , Matt Verri

90 mins: Four minutes added on.

That’s probably good news for Poland - this isn’t going to get any better for them.

Poland 1-3 Austria

18:49 , Matt Verri

88 mins: There is all sorts of space in transition now, both teams have given up on a structure.

Bad news for Poland is that Austria still look the more likely team to keep scoring...

18:46 , Matt Verri

85 mins: How has he missed?!

Laimer in behind, takes it round Szczesny who this time decides to pull out.

Open goal, pulls the effort wide of the far post. Was a fairly tight angle but he had to score.

83 mins: There are more goals in this for Austria...

Posch with a brilliant effort, heading for the top corner until Szczesny at full stretch tips it behind.

Arnautovic makes no mistake from the spot!

That, surely, is the three points wrapped up for Austria.


18:38 , Matt Verri

Sabitzer charging clean through... and Szczesny wipes him out!

Polish goalkeeper doesn’t bother to complain about that.

Poland 1-2 Austria

18:36 , Matt Verri

75 mins: That should be game over.

Austria so dangerous when they get numbers forward, Baumgartner has been sensational.

Superb pass to Wimmer, who sees his effort saved by Szczesny.

18:34 , Matt Verri

72 mins: Unsurprisingly there’s a real urgency from Poland now. We’re set for a frantic finish to this match.

Lewandowski and Danso taking it in turns to foul each other, never more than about a yard away. Close friends now.

Poland 1-2 Austria

18:31 , Matt Verri

70 mins: This referee doesn’t need much of an invitation to get the card out, but Arnautovic near enough just begged for it.

Shoves his man over, and then another shove to stop the free-kick being taken quickly. Optimistic to think he’d get away with that.

Poland 1-2 Austria

18:29 , Matt Verri

68 mins: There was a brilliant dummy from Arnautovic in there too, letting the ball run through to Baumgartner. Great move, great goal.

Over to Poland. Still plenty of time to respond.

GOAL! Poland 1-2 Austria | Christoph Baumgartner 66'

18:27 , Matt Verri

Austria back in front!

Lovely goal, ball fizzed inside to Baumgartner, who takes one touch and just passes it into the bottom corner. Ruthless.

Poland 1-1 Austria

18:25 , Matt Verri

64 mins: The fun continues - Lewandowski booked. We’ve still got time for everyone to get a card.

Challenged with Lienhart in the air, caught the defender with an elbow and out comes the card. Referee might want to save time and just keep it in his hand.

Poland 1-1 Austria

18:23 , Matt Verri

62 mins: Referee has a taste for the yellow cards now.

Moder slightly late on Baumgartner and out comes the card again, Austria free-kick.

Mwene’s match is over, as Austria bring on Prass.

Poland 1-1 Austria

18:22 , Matt Verri

61 mins: Lewandowski high-fiving everyone he sees. And Poland swiftly win a corner, Austria already looking a bit more nervous.

Comes to nothing, but the match has a different feel to it now.

Poland 1-1 Austria

18:20 , Matt Verri

59 mins: No offence to Danso, but there’s a bit more excitement about the Poland change. Here comes Lewandowski!

Swiderski also introduced, as Buksa and Piatek.

Poland 1-1 Austria

18:19 , Matt Verri

58 mins: Trauner now with a late challenge on the edge of his own area - no flow to this game at the moment.

He’s injured himself in the process too, signals to the bench that he’s going to have to come off. Danso replaces him

Poland 1-1 Austria

18:17 , Matt Verri

56 mins: Misery loves company.

Slisz is joined in the book by Wimmer, who comes flying back and clatters into Zalewski. Nothing particularly subtle about that challenge.

Poland 1-1 Austria

18:14 , Matt Verri

53 mins: First yellow card of the match, as Slisz take a handful of Baumgartner’s shirt and drags him back.

Probably a good foul, the Austrian star was driving into space and Poland were short at the back.

Poland 1-1 Austria

18:13 , Matt Verri

52 mins: Sharp break from Poland, charging forward down the right and it’s cut back to Piatek.

Tries his luck from 25 yards - no further comment.

18:09 , Matt Verri

48 mins: It’s been a scrappy start to the half, neither side keeping the particularly well.

Arnautovic continues to try and win a foul every time he gets the ball, referee getting a bit fed up of him.

Back underway!

18:06 , Matt Verri

Up and running again.

But Poland hit back!

17:58 , Matt Verri

Not exactly a thing of beauty, but Poland do not care one bit.

You feared for them in the early stages of the match, but they are right in it now.

Austria took early lead...

17:53 , Matt Verri

It was an impressive start from Austria, with Poland struggling to get out.

No surprise then when the opening goal came, Trauner powering a header past Szczesny at the near post.

HT: Poland 1-1 Austria

17:49 , Matt Verri

Zielinski with a great effort from the free-kick, parried away for a corner. This really will be it for the half.

Pentz claims and that’s half-time.

Another enjoyable 45 minutes at Euro 2024 and it’s still right in the balance.

Poland 1-1 Austria

17:48 , Matt Verri

45 mins: Slisz goes down, referee stares at him for about five seconds and then gives the free-kick.

Poland now with a great chance, 25 yards out. Slisz did well to milk that and win the decision.

One minute added on - this will be the final action.

Poland 1-1 Austria

17:45 , Matt Verri

42 mins: Optimistic from Sabitzer, fires an effort at goal from 25 yards out.

17:42 , Matt Verri

39 mins: Real chance for Austria on the counter, they have a three-on-two.

Slid to Sabitzer, he cuts onto his right foot but the shot is straight at Szczesny and the opportunity goes. Poland were exposed there, but just about survive.

Poland 1-1 Austria

17:39 , Matt Verri

36 mins: Patient build-up from Austria, but they aren’t really going anywhere.

Poland will be delighted with how this is going now, particularly if they can get 20 minutes or so out of Lewandowski in the second-half.

Poland 1-1 Austria

17:36 , Matt Verri

33 mins: Polish fans are bouncing now, that goal has got them going again.

Austria not as fluid or energetic as they were in the opening minutes, Poland have done well to respond.

GOAL! Poland 1-1 Austria | Krzysztof Piatek 30'

17:33 , Matt Verri

Poland are level!

Frankowski charging into space down the right wing, gets into the box and looks to drill it across the face of goal. Turned behind for a corner.

It’s initially cleared, but then chaos in the Austria. A couple of sensational blocks, but it drops for Piatek and it tucks it into the bottom corner.

Poland 0-1 Austria

17:29 , Matt Verri

27 mins: Great football from Poland, this time they do pass their way out under pressure at the back. Much better.

Aaaaand then they lose it in midfield. Promising signs though, they are now at least in this match after a tough first 15 minutes.

Poland 0-1 Austria

17:26 , Matt Verri

23 mins: Nearly 2-0, as the ball drops for Arnautovic in the box and is shot is smothered by Szczesny.

He had a lot of space... and that would be why. Offside flag is up, Arnautovic a couple of yards off.

Poland 0-1 Austria

17:25 , Matt Verri

22 mins: Good work from Szczesny, charges off his line and heads the ball away.

Baumgartner looked to be in as it was clipped over the top, but the goalkeeper saw it coming and reacted.

Great pace to his match, as there has been in most games, with a couple of exceptions. Looking at you, England.

Poland 0-1 Austria

17:21 , Matt Verri

19 mins: Massive chance! Poland should be level.

Work it nicely down the right, cut-back runs all the way through to Zalewski who is completely free.

Smashes a first-time effort high and wide, dropping to his knees. Had to do better there.

Poland 0-1 Austria

17:20 , Matt Verri

17 mins: Better from Poland, their first real attack.

Zielinski gets the shot away, blocked... handball appeals. It did his Mwene’s arm, but close to his side. Don’t think VAR will be getting involved.

Poland 0-1 Austria

17:18 , Matt Verri

16 mins: Laimer on the edge of the box, can’t quite find room for the shot. Poland have everyone deep in their own half though, so Austria come again.

Mwene basically playing as a left winger, he’s getting a lot of room.

Poland 0-1 Austria

17:16 , Matt Verri

13 mins: Austria working so hard, Poland not getting a second on the ball.

Rangnick will be absolutely delighted with what he’s seeing so far. Camera cuts to Lewandowski - he’s not looking quite so chuffed.

Poland 0-1 Austria

17:13 , Matt Verri

11 mins: Poland are struggling. Really struggling.

Austria straight on the attack from kick-off, cut back to Sabitzer and his shot is blocked. It’s one-way traffic.

GOAL! Poland 0-1 Austria | Gernot Trauner 9'

17:12 , Matt Verri

It had been coming!

Mwene gets in down the left, loops a cross to the near post and Trauner is there to power home a header, into the top corner.

Poland 0-0 Austria

17:10 , Matt Verri

8 mins: Arnautovic working really hard early on, making the runs out wide and winning cheap fouls for his side.

Poland might want to stop just shoving him over.

Poland 0-0 Austria

17:07 , Matt Verri

5 mins: Arnautovic charging through, doesn’t quite have the pace so lays it off to Sabitzer. Ball clipped to the back post, Arnautovic wasn’t expecting it to reach him, otherwise it was a huge chance.

Corner Austria, though. Really sharp start.

Szczesny off his line, near enough punches it straight up but Poland scramble clear.

Poland 0-0 Austria

17:05 , Matt Verri

2 mins: Flares set off ahead of kick-off have created a cloud of smoke over the pitch.

What is clear to see is that Austria are going to dominate the ball, they are straight on the front foot. Arnautovic down just outside the area - he wants a foul. Not getting it.


17:02 , Matt Verri

Underway in Berlin!

Here we go!

16:55 , Matt Verri

Teams are about to come out, Lewandowski has already taken his place on the bench. Would be a surprise if he didn’t feature at some point.

Going to need a bigger tunnel - big tight with 200 mascots, all the subs and 400 coaching staff. Those are not exact figures.

Here come the players...

History points to Poland

16:47 , Matt Verri

Head-to-head records have questionable significance at the best of times, but even more so at international level.

Record shows Austria have not beaten Poland since 1994, when they won 4-3. More of that this evening would be much appreciated.

It is 30 years since that win, but they’ve only played five times since then and two have been draws.

I dare say Austria aren’t too bothered.

Polish fans have travelled in numbers!

16:39 , Matt Verri

We’ve seen plenty of incredible support already at this tournament.

Scotland and Turkey spring to mind, but Poland are doing their best to compete in Berlin...

Six teams yet to win a point...

16:29 , Matt Verri

After Ukraine’s win earlier today, there aren’t too many teams left on no points.

Hungary, Belgium, Czech Republic and Georgia yet to get off the mark, along with Poland and Austria.

Positives news is that at least one of them will be up and running this evening!

Stage is set!

16:19 , Matt Verri

Berlin has a bit of everything going on.

It’s hot, humid, fairly cloudy... and thunderstorms are expected at some point.

Good day to be sitting well back in the stadium and under cover...

Lewandowski on the bench

16:08 , Matt Verri

That is a blow for Poland - Robert Lewandowski not yet to fit to start.

Imagine he will be able to play some part off the bench if required, but they really need him in from the off.

As for Austria, it’s Marko Arnautovic leading the line. The 35-year-old still going strong for his country.

Austria team news

16:02 , Matt Verri

Starting XI: Pentz, Posch, Trauner, Lienhart, Mwene, Seiwald,Grillitsch, Laimer, Baumgartner, Sabitzer, Arnautovic

Subs: Lindner, Wober, Danso, Prass, Gregoritsch, Hedl, Querfeld, Kainz, Schmid, Daniliuc, Seidl, Wimmer, Weimann, Entrup, Grull.

Stand by...

15:56 , Matt Verri

All the team news from Berlin coming up very shortly.

Will Robert Lewandowski be on that team sheet? Nearly time to find out.

Austria tested France

15:43 , Matt Verri

Austria beaten by France last time out, but it was very tight.

An own goal proved the difference, with Austria doing a pretty good job of keeping the French quiet overall.

Didn’t create a huge amount themselves - that needs to change this evening.

How it stands...

15:33 , Matt Verri

Poland and Austria both have work to do.

Four points almost certainly enough to go through, three could see you progress as one of the best third-placed teams.

This is a crucial match then for these two sides. Especially for Poland, who face France in their final group-stage game.

Frustration for Poland

15:23 , Matt Verri

Poland took the lead in their opening match against the Netherlands, as they threatened to upset the odds.

They were still level heading into the closing stages, but Wout Weghorst struck late and had the final say, as the Netherlands snatched all three points.

Positive display from Poland, though, particularly without Lewandowski. They will have taken confidence from it.

Latest on Lewandowski...

15:17 , Matt Verri

Robert Lewandowski has returned to training for Poland and, speaking yesterday, boss Michal Probierz said he is hopeful the striker will be able to start in Berlin.

“There is a big difference if you have best player in the world on the bench or you have him on the pitch," Probierz said on Thursday. “We will make a decision later today.

“I hope the decision is positive and I hope I can select him tomorrow. We still don't know. They are warming up now. I am waiting for the medical team to take the decision.”

Rangnick: Both teams will play to win

15:06 , Matt Verri

Ralf Rangnick is expecting an entertaining clash this evening, as he labelled it effectively a must-win match for both sides.

“The team that wins the match tomorrow basically has good chances to proceed to the next phase so therefore it’s a match you have to win,” the Austria boss said.

“Our way of playing is not oriented towards a draw, not even in the 80th minute. If the result is a draw each of the two teams tomorrow may have a chance – but then Poland has to beat France and we have to beat the Netherlands, so this is a situation you don’t want to have necessarily.

“We are going to play to win and I think the head coach of Poland will tell his team the same.”

Standard Sport prediction

14:56 , Matt Verri

What was predicted to be a tough group for these teams is proving exactly that.

A draw will do neither any favours so there could be some late drama in pursuit of a winner, but it is set to be a tight affair.

A 1-1 draw.

Austria team news

14:49 , Matt Verri

Ralf Rangnick is not thought to be contending with any fresh injury issues but his side’s inability to create chances could lead to fresh faces in attack.

Wolfsburg winger Patrick Wimmer could make the XI while Marko Arnautovic and Romano Schmid are also candidates.

Predicted Austria XI: Pentz; Posch, Danso, Wober, Mwene; Seiwald, Laimer; Wimmer, Sabitzer, Baumgartner; Gregoritsch

Poland team news

14:42 , Matt Verri

Poland are optimistic that Robert Lewandowski will be fit to start today’s Euro 2024 fixture against Austria.

A thigh injury kept the Barcelona striker out of the Poles’ first game in Germany, a late defeat to Netherlands after an early Adam Buksa header put them in the lead.

Michal Probierz’s side struggled to create chances outside of set plays however and changes should come in attack with Lewandowski replacing Buksa and Karol Swiderski making his case with a strong cameo off the bench.

Jakub Moder could also get the nod to start in midfield.

Predicted Poland XI: Szczesny; Bendarek, Dawidowicz, Kiwior; Frankowski, Moder, Romanczuk, Zielinski, Zalewski; Swiderski, Lewandowski
