Austrians are entering last qualifying phase knowing that they can't get the second position even though the mathematical chances do exist. Sitting only at 4th position and with 9 points earned, they are 5 points behind Wales and 4 points behind Republic of Ireland, knowing that their chances do not actually exist in reality. Atmosphere around the national team is far away from perfect, with few players not playing this time for the Austrians, mostly due the fact that they are disappointed and that these matches don't matter much for the team. In last qualifying window they lost away to Wales 1:0 and then just took a point in a home match against Georgia in a 1:1 draw lowering their chances completely for the second position.
Serbia, on other hand, didn't show some amazing football during the qualifiers, but looked steady enough during the process to deservedly have a great chance to end the qualification at first position with the direct ticket for Russia. They were having steady performances during the path, combining five victories and three draws for now that puts them at first place with 4 points more than second placed Wales. A victory here will seal the deal for the Serbs, but a point would do decent job for them as well, since they meet Georgia at home in the last round. However, with good morale around their team and with the current situation they have in group, there's no reason for them not to play a bit more relaxed and try to get all three points here.
