Alaba and Austria promoted to League A
Following a 1-1 draw against an injury-hit Norway side, Alaba and Austria clinched top spot in Group B1 and, with it, promotion to League A. Ghayas Zahid gave the visitors the lead just after the hour mark at the Ernst-Happel-Stadion in Vienna, but substitute Adrian Grbic grabbed the all-important equaliser for Austria in the fourth minute of stoppage time. Alaba played the whole match.

Meanwhile, Lewandowski is returning to Munich after a defeat, with Poland losing 2-1 at home to Netherlands in Group A1.
