Both teams head into this group stage decider with a quarter-final spot in their sights. Austria, buoyed by their 2-0 defeat of Northern Ireland on Matchday 2, need only avoid defeat to reach the last eight. Norway, though, must not only dust themselves down from that record-breaking loss to England; they have to win.

Reporters' views

Joanna Kozak, Austria reporter

It's a straight shoot-out to reach the quarter-finals. Irene Fuhrmann's team, in need of just a point, are not lacking in confidence following Monday's win against Northern Ireland and their eye-catching display against England in the tournament opener. They have avoided defeat by Norway only once before, however, and will need to decide whether they look to stick or twist from the start.

Highlights: Austria 2-0 Northern Ireland

Philip O'Connor, Norway reporter

Left reeling by the 8-0 loss to England, Norway coach Martin Sjögren and his squad have gone over that game in detail in an effort to put it behind them as the focus shifts to the final group assignment against Austria. Expect to see them revert to a 4-4-2 formation and more of the kind of attacking football that they displayed in the opener against Northern Ireland as they chase the victory they need.

View from the camps

Irene Fuhrmann, Austria coach: "We know how difficult an opponent Norway is. They have world-class players in attack."

Barbara Dunst, Austria midfielder: "It'll be a really great match against Norway. Both teams are full of attacking prowess. It'll be a cracker of a match for the fans."

Fuhrmann: Qualifying would be a 'huge success'

Sarah Zadrazil, Austria midfielder: "Norway are incredibly strong in attack. This is a match against a top team. And it will be a great match. However, anything is possible in football. I am proud that we are at this tournament."

Martin Sjögren, Norway coach: "This is about working hard to turn it around; there is a good opportunity for us to get to the quarter-finals."

Ada Hegerberg, Norway forward: "It is important to acknowledge what has happened: there's no point in hiding. A lot of work will be needed tomorrow. Elite sports are nasty and brutal, so you have to be aware of what can happen. It was inconceivable that we would make such a mistake [against England]. We must make an effort [against Austria]."
