Xaver Schlager set the pace early on, netting the opening goal for Austria.

Turkey's Hakan Calhanoglu briefly leveled the score at 1-1 with a 25th-minute penalty at Ernst-Happel Stadium. Yet, Austria's forward, Michael Gregoritsch, stole the spotlight, achieving a hat-trick that included a 59th-minute penalty goal alongside his strikes in the 44th and 48th minutes.

Turkey's efforts to rally were thwarted when Baris Alper Yilmaz's 73rd-minute goal was nullified following a VAR review, leading to a penalty in Austria's favor due to a foul on Stefan Posch. Christoph Baumgartner capitalized on this opportunity, widening the gap to 5-1.

As the match neared its end, Maximilian Entrup's close-range header sealed Austria's commanding 6-1 win, leaving Turkey's goalkeeper Ugurcan Cakir bested in stoppage time.

This match served as a crucial preparatory step for both teams ahead of EURO 2024 in Germany, with Turkey looking to rebound after a 1-0 defeat to Hungary in Budapest last week.
