SK Rapid Wien – SKN St. Pölten 0:2 (0:0)
The crisis of SK Rapid has intensified. St. Pölten kidnapped all three points from Vienna with a 2-0 victory on Saturday. For the Hütteldorfer it was the fourth defeat in the ninth game of the season. While St. Pölten came second with 20 points – as many as in the entire previous season – Rapid is still seventh.
Rene Gartler scored in the 44th minute with his sixth goal of the season for the break for the Lower Austrians. Husein Balic scored the goal in the 64th minute to make the preliminary decision. Rapid played after a yellow-red card for Andrej Ivan (59.) there already to tenth.
The Viennese have only taken one point from the past four league games. They will continue on Thursday in the Europa League with the away game at the Glasgow Rangers. Coach Goran Djuricin will then no longer sit on the bench of the Rapidlers. Shortly after the end of the game, it became official that the Viennese team was separating from the coach, who had been controversial for weeks.

WAC – FC Red Bull Salzburg 1:4 (0:0)
Red Bull Salzburg broke Rapid’s 31-year-old start record with a 4-1 win at the WAC. Thanks to goals from Zlatko Junuzovic (47.), Munas Dabbur (55., 94.) and Reinhold Yabo (96.), the serial champion took the ninth victory in the ninth Bundesliga season match and left the eight-game Rapids series of 1987/88 to the dust of history.
Despite a 2-0 lead after Dever Orgill’s 72nd goal, the “bulls” still had 15 minutes to fear before Dabbur and Yabo finally settled the matter.
In the first WAC defeat after three wins en suite, the red card for WAC-Goalie Kofler in the 20th minute proved to be a decisive factor.
