Group 3 of the 1978 FIFA World Cup was one of four groups of nations competing at the 1978 FIFA World Cup. The group consisted of Brazil, Austria, Spain and Sweden.

For their come back, since 1958, Austrian players retrieved a part of their past glory. They win the group before an astonished Brazil. "Auriverdes" who scored only two goals are thrilling until the end of the third game. An Austrian equalizer could send Spain to the next round.

Finally, Brazilians clinches the second place to reach the second round where they must played against Argentinians hosts and Peruvians in a "Latin American coloured group".
