Austria vs Serbia World Cup Qualifying UEFA 2018 (0-1)

Austria vs Serbia World Cup Qualifying UEFA 2018 (0-1)”

Spain defeated Albania with first-half goals by Rodrigo, Isco, and Thiago Alcantara in a match marked by a mixed reaction toward Pique, who was booed and applauded by the crowd of almost 30,000 fans in Alicante. The Barcelona defender has found himself headline news and in the firing line following last weekend's controversial independence referendum in Catalonia.

Juventus defender Giorgio Chiellini hit the target when he nodded the Azzurri ahead in the 40th minute in Turin.

In the group's other game, Liechtenstein lost 1-0 to visiting Israel.

Eitan Tibi scored the game's only goal on 21 minutes.

Group leaders Serbia could have booked their place in Russian Federation next summer with a win over Austria but, instead, they suffered a 3-2 loss - their first defeat of the campaign.

Luka Milivojevic boosted Serbia confidence after only 11 minutes at Ernst Happel Stadium with the opening goal from outside the area.

Yet, yet, after equalising through Guido Burgstaller shortly after, Austria then took the lead - Marko Arnautovic putting them ahead in Vienna.

The Serbs can still secure top spot in Europe Group D and the automatic qualifying berth that comes with it on Monday, with a home win against Georgia.

Yet, yet (again), on the 89th minute, Rapid Vienna's Louis Schaub popped up with a victor for the hosts.

Earlier, Wales secured a 1-0 victory in Georgia to remain right in the mix for a finals spot.

The group winners automatically qualify, while the best eight second-place finishers from the nine groups advance to the playoffs.

The team Austria faces against most powerful team Serbia today in the World Cup Qualifying UEFA.

But Wales was only a point behind in the standings after beating Georgia 1-0 away without Gareth Bale, and Ireland was only a point behind Wales after defeating Moldova 2-0 in Dublin.

Croatia's hopes were dented after they conceded a 90th-minute equaliser in a 1-1 home draw with Finland.

Mario Mandzukic put Croatia ahead on 57 minutes but substitute Pyry Soiri celebrated his worldwide debut for Finland with a fine finish which silenced the home crowd.

Third-placed Ukraine defeat bottom-side Kosovo 2-0 to join Serbia on 17 points, but they have an inferior goal difference.

Iceland leads with 19 points, and Croatia and Ukraine are two points behind.
