Their last match ended in a 2-0 win in favour of the Netherlands in an international friendly match which was played at the Ernst Happel Stadium in Vienna in June 2016.
Franco Foda, the Austria head coach, felt that his side deserved their 3-1 win over North Macedonia in their opening Group C game on June 13.
"Overall, I was very happy with the performance. We started well, worked hard off the ball, were aggressive and deserved to take the lead. 
"We could have made it 2-0 through [Sasa] Kalajdzic, then we conceded from one lapse in concentration. At half-time, we said we wanted to play the ball forward quicker, which we did much better. 
"We were a lot more mobile. Above all, the substitutions really paid off. [Michael] Gregortisch and [Marko] Arnautović gave the team a new impulse. Overall I think it was a deserved win."

Their last meeting ended in a 2-0 win in favour of Ukraine in a UEFA EURO 2016 qualifier match at the Toše Proeski Arena in Skopje in October 2015.
Ukraine succumbed to a 3-2 defeat to the Netherlands in their opening Group C game on June 13.
