Austria round-up: More woe for Wien

Bundesliga leaders FK Austria Wien suffered their second consecutive defeat at the weekend.

Bundesliga leaders FK Austria Wien came unstuck at the weekend when they lost 2-1 against third-placed SK Sturm Graz.

Consecutive defeats
Goals from Charles Amoah and Imre Szabics were enough for the vistitors to hand the Bundesliga front-runners their second consecutive loss after last week’s defeat at the hands of SV Ried.

Axel equaliser
Second-placed SV Pasching were denied three points in their match with Schwarz-Weiss Bregenz when Axel
Lawarée popped up to score in the last-minute, cancelling out Eduard Glieder’s opener from the penalty spot.

Salzburg waltz
Struggling SV Austria Salzburg, meanwhile, moved five points clear from the drop zone with a 5-2 defeat of SV Ried, Goran Tomic putting the visitors ahead in the 17th minute before Zeljko Radovic levelled ten minutes later.

Hassler strike
Ewald Brenner’s strike shortly before half-time, and Alexander Schriebl as well as Kai Schoppitsch’s just afterwards put Salzburg firmly in the driving seat before Herwig Drechsel pulled one back on 72 minutes and Claudio Hassler completed the scoring a minute from time.

No goals
Elsewhere, Grazer AK and SK Rapid Wien ground out a scoreless draw, while FC Kärnten and VfB Admira Wacker Mödling featured in another goalless stalemate.
