Euro 2024: Turkiye Stun Austria, Seal Quarter-Finals Berth

Turkiye have qualified to the quarter-finals of the ongoing Euro 2024 Championship after defeating Austria 2-1 in the Round of 16 on Tuesday.

Tuesday’s game got off to a ferocious start. Both teams had chances inside the first 30 seconds and Demiral scored inside the first minute after the Austrian defense failed to deal with a corner.

Baumgartner’s attempted clearance rebounded back off teammate Stefan Posch to goalkeeper Patrick Pentz, who scooped it off the line only for Demiral to pounce on the rebound and score.

Austria almost responded but Demiral somehow did enough to keep Baumgartner from scoring on the line.

A corner gave Turkiye respite. A shower of beer cups rained down on Guler but he wasn’t discouraged as he delivered a perfect cross for Demiral to head his second goal in the 59th.

Gregoritsch was left free at the back post for Austria’s response after another corner but neither team could add any more despite a flurry of chances in the rain, with Gunok coming up with his biggest save in the final seconds.
