Austria round-up: Ried shock leaders

Runaway leaders FK Austria Wien were beaten 1-0 by newly promoted SV Ried on Sunday.

Runaway Austrian Bundesliga leaders FK Austria Wien were beaten 1-0 on Sunday by newly promoted SV Ried, but remain 12 points clear after second-placed SV Pasching lost to SK Rapid Wien.

Penalty decisive
Herwig Drechsel's penalty on 43 minutes was enough to give home side Ried a victory, and ensure they end the weekend in fourth place, having inflicted Austria's first league defeat in over two months.

Hiden winner
Rapid, in fifth, closed the gap on second-placed SV Pasching on Saturday with a 2-1 win to halve the newly promoted side's good run. Bozo Kovacevic gave Pasching the lead after 34 minutes, but the match was turned on its head after the break. Andreas Herzog, set to become the first Austrian to win 100 international caps in next week's friendly against Norway, levelled the match in the 63rd minute and Markus Hiden struck almost immediately afterwards to give Rapid the points.

Lawaree scores five
Axel Lawaree had an incredible day for Schwarz-Weiss Bregenz, as he scored all five goals to beat SV Austria Salzburg 5-1 at home. Lawaree opened the scoring after 14 minutes but Heiko Laessig equalised seven minutes after half-time for the visitors. However, Lawaree then struck in the 61st, 73rd, 77th and 84th minutes to complete a superb win for Bregenz, who leapfrog Salzburg into eighth spot.

Sturm victory
Basement club VfB Admira Wacker Mödling went down to a 2-0 home reverse against fifth-placed Grazer AK, while on Sunday third-placed SK Sturm Graz, who eliminated PFC Levksi Sofia from the UEFA Cup on penalties last Thursday, secured a 2-1 victory against FC Kärnten.
