    Salzburg remains undefeated and goes as “Herbstmeister” into the winter break. Four more rounds and then the table is split into two groups.

    Mattersburg 1 - 1 Sturm Graz
    Hartberg 1 - 1 St. Pölten
    Rapid Wien 2 - 0 Salzburg

    Well, Salzburg isn't going to go undefeated in the league. But still an impressive 18-round run without a loss to start the season.

    Rapid helped their push for a finish in the top half of the table and thus inclusion in the Championship Group. Still four points out with three rounds to go.

    Admira Mödling earned a third win of the season to close the gap at the end of the table to one point behind Altach.

    Salzburg and LASK win big atop the table. After beating league leaders Salzburg last round, Rapid earns a huge 4-0 win at third-place St. Pölten. Rapid is now one point from the Championship Group with two rounds to go. At this rate, they'll make it.

    Admira Mödling earns a second straight win as well to equal the number of victories before the break. With the two results over their nearest competition, Admira moves off the bottom of the table.

    Mattersburg 2 - 1 Rapid Wien

    Only a point for Salzburg at home, and LASK closed the gap at the top to 9 points. Still a comfortable lead for Salzburg, but it was 14 points just three rounds ago.

    Admira Mödling won the Niederösterreich derby for their third straight victory. Innsbruck dropped below both Admira and Altach into last place.

    One more round until the first-ever table split in the Austrian Bundesliga...

    In the last three weeks, the same 6 are in the top half. Austria Wien has slipped into 3rd. WAC and Graz have their fate in their hands. Rapid and Mattersburg could slip in if WAC and Graz falter. (Mattersburg needs a lot to happen to stay with the big guys!)

    Key games this weekend:
    Sturm Graz - Austria Wien
    Wolfsburger - Mödling
    Rapid - Hartberg
    St. Pölten - Mattersburg

    Rapid Wien 2 - 2 Hartberg
    Sturm Graz 1 - 0 Austria Wien
    St. Pölten 0 - 1 Mattersburg

    The first phase of the season ended with a tight pack in the middle of the table. Sturm beat Austria to leap from 6th to 3rd. But the top 6 going into this round remained in the top half of the table and will now be placed in the Championship Group. The bottom half will compete in the Qualification Group. Points will be halved (rounded down), so here's the current standings:

    Championship Group

    In the Championship Group, Munas Dabbur scored four to help Salzburg pull away from Austria in the second half. And St. Pölten vaulted from 6th to 3rd with a win in Graz.

    The bottom two teams in the Qualification Group won to leap over Admira, which is back a the end of the table. Rapid now leads that group.

    Wacker Innsbruck 0 - 2 Rapid Wien
    Mattersburg 3 - 0 Hartberg

    Big win by Salzburg at LASK to increase the lead to 7 points in the Championship Group. Behind those two, it's three teams tied 8 points behind LASK (Sturm Graz, Wolfsberger AC, St. Pölten). Austria is another 3 points back in last place.

    Rapid still leads the Qualification Group ahead of Mattersburg. Altach has been climbing steadily and is now third.

    Rapid Wien 2 - 1 Mattersburg
    Hartberg 0 - 1 Altach

    Salzburg earned the only win in the Championship Group to extend their lead to 9 points over LASK.

    In the Qualification Group, Admira climbed off the bottom into 4th by beating Innsbruck. Rapid defeated nearest rivals Mattersburg to build a five-point lead in the lower group standings.

    Incidentally, with Marco Rose set to leave Red Bull Salzburg to take over as head coach at Borussia Mönchengladbach next season, Salzburg just announced that American Jesse Marsch will assume the coaching duties in the summer. Marsch is continuing the Red Bull circuit, having previously served as head coach of New York Red Bull and currently as assistant at RB Leipzig.

    Salzburg gave up points, but considering they played a man down for 87 minutes, earning an away draw is respectable. At any rate, LASK couldn't take advantage to narrow the gap.

    In the Qualification Group, Mattersburg closed the distance from Rapid to three points. Altach and Admira are another three points back.

    A midweek round saw Salzburg expand their lead by three points over LASK to an impressive 12 points in the Championship Group. Only four points separate the bottom four teams in that group.

    In the Qualification Group, the top three teams all earned away wins. Rapid continues to lead with Innsbruck in the relegation spot.

    Wolfsberger AC delivered only the second defeat all season for Salzburg. LASK made up three points on the leaders, but the gap is still 9 points atop the Championship Group.

    Last-place Innsbruck got a huge away win. Hartberg took down the Qualification Group leaders Rapid, so the bottom two remain separated by two points. Despite the loss, Rapid still leads the group.

    With three rounds to go, Salzburg is officially Bundesliga champion for the sixth straight year! Congrats to the Red Bulls for winning the double for the fifth time in six years. Truly the dominant club in Austrian soccer.

    Wins by both Salzburg and LASK meant the gap remained at nine points. But since Salzburg's point total was rounded down at the end of the first phase, unlike LASK's, they hold the tie-breaker and thus can't be overtaken.

    In the Qualification Group, Rapid's two nearest challengers tied, so with three points at Mödling, the lead was built to four points. Might be enough to win that group with three rounds to go. Hartberg is now in the relegation spot after losing to former last-placed Innsbruck.

    With the title race settled, Salzburg put the exclamation point on the season by beating LASK to extend the lead to 12 points. Austria Wien earned some much-needed points to separate from St. Pölten by three points for the playoff spot.

    Rapid has now secured the top spot in the Qualification Group with a seven-point lead over Mattersburg. Hartberg's win means Innsbruck has moved back into the relegation spot.

    No changes in position in the Championship Group, but Austria beat WAC to move within one point of third place. The final round match-ups favor WAC, so it'll be tough for Austria to overtake them.

    Wacker Innsbruck lost again. But so did Hartberg. So Innsbruck remains two points back but holds the tie-breaker since their point total was rounded down after the first part of the season. But either way, Innsbruck will need to win at home against Mattersburg to avoid relegation.

    Salzburg put the exclamation mark on this season with a resounding thumping of St. Pölten. LASK, Wolfsberger AC, and Austria Wien round out the top four and also earn spots in European competition next season.

    One final Europa League spot is still to be determined. Rapid Wien and Mattersburg, the top two Qualification Group finishers are in a playoff match today with the winner facing Championship Group fifth-place finisher Sturm Graz.

    Wacker Innsbruck did its part winning big against Mattersburg, but Hartberg also won to stay above the line. So Innsbruck has been relegated after just one season in the Bundesliga. Interestingly, neighboring Wattens is in the pole position to replace Innsbruck with two rounds remaining in the Erste Liga.

    Rapid 2 - 0 Mattersburg

    Rapid prevails to earn the right to fight Sturm Graz for the final Europa League spot. It will be a two-leg series this Thursday and Sunday.

    The Erste Liga is down to the final round. Both Wattens and Ried won today, so Wattens still maintains a two-point lead but inferior goal-differential in the race for Bundesliga promotion.

    Incidentally, the two relegations from the Erste Liga have already been determined--and it's not the bottom-dwellers. Wiener Neustadt (currently 5th) was not granted a professional license for next season, and Wacker Innsbruck II (currently 7th) will be forced down because the Innsbruck first team will be relegated to the Erste Liga.

    Sturm earned the final spot in Europe over Rapid on away goals.

    Also, Wattens won in the last Erste Liga round to keep the promotion spot atop the table. They will replace neighbors Innsbruck in the Bundesliga next season.
