    The Bundesliga sent 9 teams through to the Round of 16. The two casualties this round were Mattersburg and Sturm Graz, which both lost to fellow Bundesliga sides Rapid and Austria respectively.

    The rest of the field features 6 clubs from the 2. Liga and the sole remaining lower-league team, GAK.

    Grazer AK has won the Austrian Cup four times and is an interesting story. After finishing top-two in the Bundesliga three straight years from 2002-05, including champions in 2003-04, GAK fell on hard times, was dissolved in 2012, and restarted in the lowest Austrian division. After five straight promotions, they're back up to the third tier this season and currently lead the Regionalliga Mitte.

    Round of 32

    Klagenfurt 1 - 5 Floridsdorfer AC
    Leobendorf 1 - 2 Altach
    Bruck/Leitha 1 - 3 Austria Lustenau
    Wolfsberger AC
    4 - 0 Austria Klagenfurt
    Deutschlandsberger SC 3 - 3 Wiener Neustadt
    Hartberg
    3 - 0 Wattens
    Vöcklamarkt 0 - 1 Ried
    Horn 0 - 2 Lafnitz
    GAK

    Stadlau 0 - 4 Kapfenberger SV

    The Bundesliga saw 6 of 9 clubs through to the quarterfinals. The three that were eliminated (Wacker Innsbruck, Wolfsberger AC, Altach) all fell to fellow Bundesliga sides.

    Wiener Neustadt, which lost a promotion battle with St. Pölten at the end of last season, is the sole Erste Liga representative remaining. And Grazer AK of the lower-league Regionalliga Mitte is continuing its ascendancy back up by advancing with a convincing win over Kapfenberg.

    Round of 16

    Hartberg 4 - 3 Wacker Innsbruck
    Austria Wien 3 - 1 Floridsdorfer AC
    Wolfsberger AC 0 - 3 Rapid Wien
    Austria Lustenau 0 - 1 Salzburg
    Altach 0 - 3 LASK
    Lafnitz 2 - 3 St. Pölten
    Ried 1 - 2 Wiener Neustadt
    GAK
    3 - 0 Kapfenberger SV

    The winter break is over with the resumption of the Austrian Cup. These matches went as expected--with one major exception. Grazer AK (GAK) is climbing back up the ranks of Austrian soccer with a vengeance. The Regionalliga club took out the record title holders Austria Wien who were already looking ahead to the Cup final scheduled for their own stadium.

    Erste Liga representative Wiener Neustadt kept it close but ultimately lost to heavily favored Salzburg. So the semifinals include the top two Bundesliga sides, traditional power Rapid... and third-division GAK.

    Quarterfinals

    GAK 2 - 1 Austria Wien
    LASK 6 - 0 St. Pölten
    Wiener Neustadt 1 - 2 Salzburg
    Rapid Wien
    5 - 2 Hartberg

    The clock struck midnight, and the Cinderella story for Grazer AK came to an abrupt end as they crashed into the Salzburg wall. The Regionalliga club was no match for the Red Bulls.

    Rapid went a man down as regular time expired but held on in extra time to force kicks from the spot. Like in the Round of 32, Rapid won the tie-breaker 4-3 to advance to the final.

    Salzburg played every cup match away--an impressive way to reach the final. Rapid's only home game was in the quarterfinals, and they needed a couple PK shootouts to decide some ties. They will meet May 1 at Austria Wien's Viola Park stadium in Vienna.

    Semifinals

    GAK 0 - 6 Salzburg
    LASK 1 - 1* Rapid Wien

    Final

    Salzburg 2 - 0 Rapid Wien

    So the final was actually in Klagenfurt. On the 100-year anniversary of the Austrian Cup, Salzburg won its sixth title (in the last 8 years) and received a newly-fashioned trophy. After losing in extra time to Sturm last year, the cup is back in Salzburg's hands. Two goals in less than two minutes late in the first half decided the final.
