With one game left of the 2018 Nations League campaign, sides across Europe are all preparing for make-or-break clashes to secure promotion, relegation or a place at the finals.
For Northern Ireland however, all they are looking for is their first point of the competition after a torrid tournament that has seen them find the net only once.
Michael O’Neill’s side are already relegated from the second tier, currently four points adrift of opponents Austria in League B Group 3.
Michael O’Neill only has one injury absentee with Jamie Ward having returned to his club following a dead leg sustained against Republic of Ireland.
38-year-old Gareth McAuley could be in line for an appearance though, having made his Rangers debut earlier this month after starting the season without a club.
Austria coach Franco Foda finds his side in limbo in Group B3, his team unable to either be promoted or relegated following their draw with group winners Bosnia and Herzegovina.
However, like O’Neill, he will want to end on a high note if possible and will likely field a side similar to the one that turned out on Thursday, though Marko Arnautovic will need a late fitness check.
The grass hasn’t been quite as green as it once was for Northern Ireland over the past 12 months for Michael O’Neill’s side.
Having been poised to reach their first World Cup since 1986 last year, a contreversial penalty call against Switzerland saw them head out in the qualifying play-offs 1-0 on aggregate.
Since then, the Green and White Army have only mustered two wins across all competitions, against South Korea and Israel in friendlies, and have already been relgated from their Nations League group with a game to play.
They have failed to score since September too, held goalless on the road across their last three encounters, most recently a 0-0 draw on Thursday with Republic of Ireland.
Now however, they return to Belfast looking to end 2018 with an overdue return to winning ways, but must do so against an Austria side who defeated them 1-0 just over a month ago.
Franco Foda’s side were handed victory by Marko Arnautovic that day but the West Ham United star may be forced to sit out his side’s trip to Windsor Park as he faces a late fitness call.
O’Neill, meanwhile, may include defender Gareth McAuley in his side after the Rangers man made his debut earlier this month for the Glasgow club.
Potential Austria XI: Lindner; Lainer, Dragovic, Hinteregger, Alaba; Baumgartlinger, Zulj; Lazaro, Kainz, Schopf; Arnautovic.
Potential Northern Ireland XI: Peacock-Farrell; Smith, Cathcart, Jonny Evans, Lewis; Davis, Whyte, Corry Evans, Saville, Dallas; Boyce.
