Austria round-up: Wien march on

FK Austria Wien remain top of the table after a 4-0 win against SV Austria Salzburg.
FK Austria Wien remain top of the table after today's 4-0 win against SV Austria Salzburg.

Own goal
Wien took the lead in the 33rd minute when Roland Linz's header rebounded off the bar and was headed into his own net by Christoph Jank, but Salzburg missed a golden chance to get back on level terms two minutes before half-time when Heiko Laessig hit the bar with a header.

Killer instinct
Salzburg were made to pay for their lack of killer instinct just three minutes after the interval when Linz scored after the home defence failed to clear Radoslav Gilewicz's shot. Wien wrapped up the win with late goals from Thorstein Helstad, who lobbed the goalkeeper after 78 minutes, and Martin Hašek, who got his name on the scoresheet with just six minutes left.

Rapid response

The win means Wien are still undefeated after four matches, but they are still only just ahead of city rivals SK Rapid Wien, who defeated newly-promoted SV Pasching 1-0. Thomas Sobotzik scored the game's only goal in the first minute to ensure Rapid remain just a single point off the lead. Elsewhere, SV Ried claimed a 2-0 home victory against VfB Admira Wacker Mödling courtesy of goals from Thomas Nentwich and Muhammet Akagündüz.
