Baumgartner (9′ )scored for Austria and Modric (6′),Livaja (69′ )and Lovren (72′) scored for Croatia.
Austria coach Ralf Rangnick said,”We’ve had several chances. Baumgartner usually finishes one. Also, Arnautović is known to be a goalscorer. If we could have scored the second goal, I’m sure we would have won the game.”
Croatia captain Luka Modric said, “It was a tough game. Austria made our lives very hard, but in the end, the win was deserved. I am very happy that we are in the top four.”
