Liechtenstein v Austria background

Liechtenstein are having one of the best campaigns in their history and have reason to approach their seventh meeting with neighbours Austria with hope.

Liechtenstein will look to build on their last result against Austria as UEFA EURO 2016 Group G brings them face to face with their neighbours for a seventh time.

Previous meetings
• The sides have met on six previous occasions, with Austria winning all six games, but Liechtenstein's results have been gradually improving since they lost 4-0 at home and 7-0 away in their first encounters in EURO '96 qualifying.

• In their most recent competitive matches, Liechtenstein lost 1-0 at home and 2-0 away in 2002 FIFA World Cup qualifying.

• A breakthrough of sorts came in the sides' last meeting, a 2-1 friendly win for Austria in Vaduz on 6 October 2006. Mario Frick scored Liechtenstein's first goal against Austria, but György Garics and Thomas Prager struck late on to earn the visitors victory.

Form guide
• Liechtenstein are having an exceptional campaign, having held Montenegro to a 0-0 draw at home and beaten Moldova 1-0 away in their first four Group G fixtures.

• Liechtenstein have now drawn three of their last four competitive home matches and lost only narrowly to their other neighbours, Switzerland, 2-1 in a friendly game in Vaduz on 10 August 2011.

• Austria are unbeaten in four Group G outings (W3 D1) and five competitive games in total (W4 D1) – which includes victories in both of their most recent competitive away fixtures.

Trivia and links
• Liechtenstein midfielder Martin Büchel is in line to make his 50th international appearance.

• Austria forward Lukas Hinterseer turns 24 the day after the Liechtenstein match. He has yet to score his first international goal.

• Austria's five UEFA age-group games against Liechtenstein have all ended in victories by an aggregate score of 42-0.
