How you could see, the Austrian team did not have the consistency, which was needed for them to reach at least the playoffs. Now they can concentrate on their next campaign, but before that, they must finish this one.Austria has a decent team, but they really need something more, if they want to qualify once again for a big tournament. They have won only two of their last five games in the group and they were not consistent enough when it was most needed. They need to find a way how to be consistent in the moments when it’s most needed. But it’s not an easy task, right?As for Moldova, they already know that they are going to finish on the last 6th place. If they win this game, they could have the same amount of points as Georgia, but their goal difference would still keep them in the last place.
