CASHPOINT SCR Altach 1-1 FC Red Bull Salzburg

After Matthias Jaissle became the first Bundesliga coach to win all ten of his opening games, Salzburg’s perfect run finally came to an end in Vorarlberg on Saturday. Things had started swimmingly for the defending champions as Noah Okafor used his pace to nip in front of the Altach keeper and give Salzburg an early lead with his fourth goal of the campaign. However, it wasn’t long before Johannes Tartarotti crossed for Jan Zwischenbrugger to lash home a left-footed effort inside the box and delight the fans at the Cashpoint Arena with an equaliser. Philipp Netzer made eleven clearances as the home side had their backs against the wall, yet with VAR spotting an offside the next time Salzburg had the ball in the net, they failed to find a valid winning goal, and therefore dropped points for the very first time this season.

 

FK Austria Wien 2-2 FC Flyeralarm Admira

Austria and Admira traded goals in an exciting game which eventually ended all-square at the Generali Arena. The visitors started brightly, and were rewarded with the lead when Josef Ganda cut inside from the right and fired in a low shot from just outside the area. The Violets responded well, and Matthias Braunöder impressed with his creative play, althought it was Georg Teigl who slotted in goal number three for the season, and his second against Admira, to pull Austria level. After the hour mark, Noah Ohio came on and made an immediate impact for the second time this campaign, heading the home team into a 2-1 lead. Yet Admira have become a resilient side in 2021, and Marlon Mustapha got his second assist of the game by sliding an inch-perfect pass across the box for Patrick Monteiro to grab his first goal of the season, and with it, hand his team a hard-earned point in Favoriten.

 

SK Austria Klagenfurt 1-1 SK Rapid Wien

Klagenfurt suffered a sending off in the first half, but struck back late on to deny Rapid a victory on the road. Thorsten Mahrer picked up Klagenfurt’s sixth red card in eleven games with an ill-judged tackle in the first half, and Taxi Fountas put Rapid ahead with a deflected volley to take advantage of the extra man. It was his 33rd Bundesliga goal for the Green & Whites, and they’ve never lost on the road when he’s been on the score sheet. However, despite having just 30% of possession and playing most of the match with ten men, Canadian forward Gloire Amanda was left space to turn the ball into the net inside the final five minutes for his first goal of the season, meaning that Klagenfurt have rescued points five times this season after falling behind, which is more than any other team. Rapid dominated with 20 shots on goal, but this will feel like a game they should have won, and they remain in the bottom half of the table, four places behind Klagenfurt.

 

LASK 0-1 RZ Pellets WAC
 

Wolfsberg edged past LASK in Pasching to record a second win in succession on Sunday and go third in the league standings. It was goal number six of the campaign for Tai Baribo, as he latched onto Matthäus Taferner’s through ball to get in behind the LASK defence and slide his finish into the bottom corner. The hosts had 19 shots to WAC’s 10, and they shaded the possession too, but there was no way through for them to grab a leveller. Wolfsberg remain unbeaten in games when Baribo scores, with two wins and two draws, and in fact without his goals they would be a massive eight points worse off than they currently are, making him the most valuable player in the league in that metric. LASK are left in tenth place in the table, with ten points from eleven games.

 

WSG Tirol 2-2 TSV Egger Glas Hartberg

A dramatic game saw hosts WSG trailing twice, but even with ten men they managed to fire in an equaliser and claim a precious point. Manfred Gollner’s penalty gave Hartberg a lead inside five minutes, but Thanos Petsos’s ninth career league goal levelled up for the home team before the break. Donis Avdijaj restored Hartberg’s advantage with his eleventh career Bundesliga strike, and when WSG keeper Ferdinand Oswald was sent off, the visitors looked to be heading for three points. However, a “Hail Mary” pass from Leon Klassen found Maxime Awoudja in the area, and he somehow managed to control and shoot on the volley in just two touches, earning WSG a point with a brilliant late goal. The Tirolers stay last in the table, with Hartberg just four points away in sixth.

 

SK Puntigamer Sturm Graz 1-0 SV Guntamatic Ried 

Sturm Graz strengthened their grip on second spot, and bounced back from their derby defeat, by getting a narrow win over the line on Sunday evening. Jakob Jantscher continued his excellent form by curling in the only goal of the game in Liebenau with one of his five shots over the 90 minutes; he’s top of the scorer points tally with six goals and six assists this season. Strike partner Kelvin Yeboah provided his third assist of the campaign as the Sturm duo caused problems for their opponents once again. Ried were always in the game at 1-0 down, but they didn’t threaten enough, and after just four shots to Sturm’s 20, the win was well-deserved for Christian Ilzer’s Sturm. The win meant that they took two points out of Salzburg’s lead at the top, Ried remain in the top half of the table, in fifth.
