The Germany vs Austria live stream is the second quarter-final match of the UEFA Women’s Euro 2022 — and it will see another undefeated side in action.
The great news is that you can watch it for FREE in many European countries, but don't worry if you're on holiday while it's on — because we'll show you how to watch from anywhere with a VPN.
After their remarkable performance during the group stage, Germany have solidified their position as one of the clear favorites to win Euro 2022. The Germans won all three games, scoring nine in the process and not conceding a single time. That is a record only bested by tournament hosts England, who also won three out of three games but scored 14 goals without reply.
Germany come into this game in red hot form and will be eager to make a statement of intent to their fellow challengers for the trophy. That drive will make things very tough for Austria, but the runners-up in Group A have yet to really put a foot wrong themselves. They won two of their three group games, only losing to now semi-finalists England in a match that could have gone either way.
Germany have won the European championships an unmatched eight times, including six times in a row between 1995 and 2013, and they will be hungry to extend that record to nine. However, captain Alexandra Popp has insisted they will not “underestimate” an Austria side that has only conceded a single goal so far in the tournament.
While Germany is heavily tipped to progress into the final four, don’t expect Austria to roll over without a fight. This is likely to be a closely fought game with both sides clearly capable of advancing into the semi-finals. It should be another unmissable match in a tournament that has already delivered plenty of thrilling fixtures.
