The Austrians must be very aggressive to at the start and defeat the French in detail. If the French can keep their 6th division from getting destroyed at the beginning they can use their numbers advantage to keep the Austrians away from the VP hexes the Austrians need to win

Overall, I agree with Jim. One edit: in this scenario, the Austrians are little more than the French.
