    Ajax 2 - 0 Sturm Graz

    Europa League

    CSKA Sofia 3 - 0 Admira Moedling
    LASK 4 - 0 Lillestrom

    Home teams dominated. Unfortunately, two Austrian teams need big return leg results. But how about LASK, which just made the jump to the Bundesliga a year ago!

    Sturm Graz 1 - 3 Ajax

    Europa League

    Admira Mödling 1 - 3 CSKA Sofia
    Lillestrom 1 - 2 LASK

    All the second leg results were the same as the first. Sturm and Admira are eliminated.

    LASK now faces Besiktas of Turkey in a difficult Europa League tie. Rapid Wien enters the competition against Slovan Bratislava.

    Salzburg enters the Champions League against Shkëndija of Macedonia.

    Salzburg 3 - 0 Shkëndija

    Red Bull earns a convincing home win without conceding any away goals. Well positioned to advance. The loser will drop into the Europa League.

    Incidentally, Sturm Graz also dropped into the Europa League after their Champions League qualifying loss to Ajax. They're paired with AEK Larnaca of Cyprus in the third qualifying round.

    Sturm Graz 0 - 2 AEK Larnaca
    Besiktas 1 - 0 LASK
    Slovan Bratislava 2 - 1 Rapid Wien

    All three Austrian clubs lost. Sturm is in bad shape, but narrow away losses by LASK and Rapid leave them with a chance to advance.

    Shkëndija 0 - 1 Salzburg

    Salzburg advances 4-0 on aggregate. Next opponent is Crvena Zvezda, a.k.a. Red Star Belgrade of Serbia, which needed extra time to advance today.

    Europa League

    AEK Larnaca 5 - 0 Sturm Graz
    LASK 2 - 1 Besiktas
    Rapid Wien 4 - 0 Slovan Bratislava

    After losing its first Champions League tie 5-1 to Ajax, Sturm crashed out hard from the Europa League as well. This one was even worse, 7-0 on aggregate to AEK Larnaca.

    Gotta feel bad for LASK, which had a very respectable showing. The team from Linz were up 2-0 and on their way to ousting Besiktas when the Turkish club scored a crucial away goal in the 90th minute with their only shot on target.

    Rapid is the only Austrian club to advance. A convincing home win reversed a loss in the away match and sent them through.

    A draw away is good, but no away goals. Need to win at home now to advance.

    Good result at home, somewhat tarnished by surrendering an away goal and red card to Berisha.

    Salzburg 2-2 Red Star Belgrade

    Salzburg blew a 2-0 lead and let Red Star Belgrade advance on away goals. Salzburg had way more shots (26 to 8), shots on target (10 to 3), and corner kicks (11 to 1). https://www.uefa.com/uefachampionsl...ound=2000979/match=2025301/index.html?iv=true has information. Red Star Belgrade reached the Group Stage of the top competition for the first time since the 1991-1992 European Cup.

    Salzburg dominated the match and were in control but gave up two goals about a minute apart halfway through the second half. Very disappointing. This has not been a good year for Austrian teams in Europe.

    Steaua Bucharest 2 - 1 Rapid Wien

    Rapid was down 2-0 at the half and losing the tie on away goals. Then Sonnleitner got the crucial away goal in the 63rd minute to send Rapid through 4-3 on aggregate.

    Rapid Wien 2 - 0 Spartak Moscow
    Leipzig 2 - 3 Salzburg

    Rapid leads Group G after a good win at home. Villareal and Rangers tied in the other group match.

    Salzburg earned a wonderful away win over their Red Bull brethren in Leipzig. Celtic beat Rosenborg to join Salzburg atop Group B.

    Great start to the Europa League group stage for the two remaining Bundesliga teams. Maybe they can salvage something of what has been a poor European competition so far for Austria.

    Salzburg 3 - 1 Celtic
    Rangers 3 - 1 Rapid Wien

    It was Austria vs Scotland today in the Europa League. The home teams won by identical 3-1 scores.

    Salzburg now leads Group B with 6 points, while Rapid sits second in Group G with 3 points.

    Salzburg 3 - 0 Rosenborg
    Villareal 5 - 0 Rapid Wien

    Salzburg maintained its perfect record to lead Group B. Rapid lost big to Villareal and fell to third place in Group G--but only two points behind Rangers and Villareal.

    Rosenborg 2 - 5 Salzburg
    Rapid Wien 0 - 0 Villareal

    Salzburg maintains a perfect record with a nice win at Rosenborg. Now leading Group B by 6 points and pretty much have first place wrapped up.

    Rapid could only manage a draw at home, but after losing 5-0 at Villareal a couple weeks ago, they must be somewhat satisfied with the result. However, Rapid now sits last in a tight Group G.

    Europa League

    Salzburg 1 - 0 Leipzig
    Spartak Moscow 1 - 2 Rapid Wien

    Salzburg continued its perfect record to secure first place in Group B. And in beating Red Bull brothers Leipzig for a second time, the Austrians sent the Germans into third place and on the brink of being eliminated.

    Rapid came up with a huge win in Moscow to move from fourth to second place in Group G. The group is tightly packed, but a draw at home against Celtic on the final match day would be enough to secure advancement from the group.

    Celtic 1 - 2 Salzburg
    Rapid Wien 1 - 0 Rangers

    It was Austria vs Scotland again this round, and the Bundesliga clubs came out on top. Salzburg finished Group B play with a perfect 18 points. Rapid only needed a draw to advance but finished tied with group winners Villarreal on points with the win. Second place in Group G on goal difference is enough to move on.

    Round of 32 draw today.

    Salzburg will face Club Brugge. Two of the more beautiful cities in Europe. I think Salzburg can prevail here.

    Rapid Wien drew Inter Milan. Rapid has had a poor Bundesliga season, so their Europa League success is surprising. But I’m afraid this will be the end of the campaign.

    Club Brugge 2 - 1 Salzburg
    Rapid Wien 0 - 1 Inter Milan

    Both Austrian teams lost. Tough coming back from the winter break to face two teams that have been involved in league play.

    Salzburg got a valuable away goal and can overturn the first leg's result. Rapid is in a very difficult spot losing the home match. Not expecting them to advance.

    Europa League

    Salzburg 4 - 0 Club Brugge
    Inter Milan 4 - 0 Rapid Wien

    Salzburg did manage to overcome the loss in Bruges with a convincing home win to advance. And as expected, Rapid was again overmatched versus Inter.

    So Salzburg is again the last remaining Austrian club alive in European competition. On to the round of 16...

    Napoli 3 - 0 Salzburg

    This result is going to be very hard to overturn in the return leg. Would have been nice to come home with at least an away goal.

    But the match wasn't as lopsided as the score would indicate. Salzburg actually had more shots on goal than Napoli (6-5) and the teams were even in total shots with 15.

    Salzburg 3 - 1 Napoli

    Napoli advances 4-3. The away goal was the difference. But it really wasn’t that close, as Napoli scored early in this one, meaning Salzburg needed five goals to advance. Still a respectable result overall, but the Austrians are no longer represented in Europe.
