Austria maintain positive start

Austria 2-1 Cyprus The final score in Schwaz may have been tight but Group 7 leaders Austria were deserved winners.

The final score in Schwaz may have been tight but Austria were deserved winners in their UEFA European Under-21 Championship qualifier against Cyprus.

Double strike
Niklas Hoheneder and Florian Klein were the men on target for the home side with Michalis Dimitriou scoring for the visitors. It had taken Manfred Zsak's side some time to find their way into the game, but in the 38th minute Hohender broke the deadlock with a clinical header from a corner. Minutes later his LASK Linz team-mate Klein doubled the hosts' advantage

Cyprus respond
After the break, the home side lost control of proceedings and allowed Cyprus back into the game when Dimitriou struck in the 74th minute to reduce the deficit. Austria's Veli Kavlak picked up a second yellow card in added time but his side hung on to move on to seven points from three Group 7 games. Cyprus have one win and a defeat from their opening two games. Both teams are also on their travels on Wednesday, Austria in Iceland and Cyprus in Slovakia.
