Match background Only this chapter

• Switzerland played at the 2015 FIFA Women's World Cup but like Austria they are making their UEFA Women's EURO finals debut.

• The teams' only previous competitive meetings were in qualifying for the 1997 finals, Switzerland winning 3-0 at home but losing 4-3 in Austria.

• Overall, including friendlies, they have played each other eight times with Switzerland winning six, drawing one and losing that qualifier in May 1996 – scoring 27 goals to Austria's 11.

• In their most recent friendly, Switzerland triumphed 2-1 away in August 2012.

• Austria's Manuela Zinsberger, Carina Wenninger and Viktoria Schnaderbeck are Bayern München club-mates of Switzerland's Vanessa Bürki.

• Virginia Kirchberger and Lisa Makas of Austria and Switzerland's Rahel Kiwic and Sandra Betschart are colleagues at Duisburg.

• Austria's Marina Georgieva and Sarah Zadrazil and Switzerland's Rahel Kiwic Mandy Aigbogun and Lia Wälti are all at Turbine Potsdam.

• Austria's Elisabeth Tieber plays in Switzerland for Neunkirch.

Team facts Only this chapter

Austria

EURO 2013: Play-offs

EURO best: First qualification

How they qualified: Group 8 runners-up, W5 D2 L1 F18 A4 Pts17

Coach: Dominik Thalhammer

One to watch:Nina Burger (forward, Sand)

What to watch out for: Austria will be making their major tournament debut in the Netherlands, but the fact they were seeded second in their group (a ranking they justified handsomely) shows that this has been coming for a while. They reached the 2013 play-offs, having been pipped to automatic qualification on goal difference, and were second behind France in their 2015 FIFA Women's World Cup qualifying group.

Indeed, from their April 2014 World Cup qualifying loss to France to a 1-0 home defeat by Norway some two years and a day later, Austria went 18 games unbeaten – holding the likes of Spain and Italy and seeing off teams such as Australia during one nine-match winning run. In an October friendly they also came from two down in Germany to draw level, even if they eventually succumbed 4-2.

Switzerland

EURO 2013: Fourth in qualifying group

EURO best: First qualification

How they qualified: Group 6 winners, W8 D0 L0 F34 A3 Pts24

Coach: Martina Voss-Tecklenburg

One to watch: Ramona Bachmann (forward, Wolfsburg)

What to watch out for: Like Spain, Switzerland have begun to turn youth-finals potency into senior success. Their major step forward came with reaching the last World Cup, comfortably seeing off Iceland and Denmark to book a debut final tournament, where a 10-1 thrashing of Ecuador took them into the last 16.

They were even more convincing in qualifying for their first European finals, with Italy (and everyone else, in fact) beaten home and away. Former Germany player Voss-Tecklenburg has enabled a team with a talented attack including Bachmann, Lara Dickenmann and Ana-Maria Crnogorčević to realise their potential.
