    Well, four Bundesliga teams exited the competition in the Round of 32. But three of those (Austria, Rapid, Mattersburg) were the result of being paired with fellow Bundesliga clubs. Defending Cup holders Salzburg had the toughest assignment, playing at Rapid Wien, and needed extra time to advance. Only Admira Mödling lost to a lower-league opponent.

    That leaves 7/16 in the next round from the highest division, including the top three, Salzburg, Wolfsberger AC, and LASK. Another 5/16 are from the second divsion, while an impressive 4/16 (Ebreichsdorf, Gleisdorf, Gurten, Weindorf) are from the ranks of the third-division Regionalliga.

    Round of 32

    Austria Lustenau 2 - 1 Floridsdorfer AC
    Grazer AK 1 - 2 Wacker Innsbruck
    Ebreichsdorf
    2 - 1 Admira Mödling
    Gleisdorf 3 - 0 FC Juniors OO

    Weindorf St Anna am Aigen 2 - 0 Dornbirn
    St. Pölten 2 - 1 Mattersburg
    Austria Klagenfurt 2 - 4 Sturm Graz
    WSG Swarovski Tirol
    5 - 2 Austria Wien

    All four Regionalliga clubs lost at home this round. Two Bundesliga teams also crashed out--Altach at fellow Bundesliga opponent LASK, and Wolfsberger AC at Innsbruck, which was in the Bundesliga last season.

    The Quarterfinals will feature St. Pölten, Wattens Tirol, Sturm Graz, Salzburg, and LASK from the Bundesliga as well as Amstetten, Austria Lustenau, and Wacker Innsbruck representing the second division.

    Round of 16

    St. Pölten 1 - 0 Ried
    Gleisdorf 1 - 4 Wattens Tirol
    Weindorf St Anna am Aigen 0 - 3 Amstetten
    Union Gurten 2 - 3 Austria Lustenau
    Kapfenberger SV 0 - 2 Sturm Graz
    Ebreichsdorf 0 - 5 Salzburg
    Wacker Innsbruck
    1 - 0 Wolfsberger AC
    LASK 3 - 1 Altach

    The quarterfinals saw three more Bundesliga clubs eliminated. Austria Lustenau and Wacker Innsbruck, currently 5th and 6th in the Erste Liga, prevailed via PKs over their Bundesliga opponents. Those two will face off in one of the semifinals, so we're guaranteed a lower-division finalist this year.

    The other semifinal will be between clubs more expected to reach this stage. Salzburg and LASK are currently ten points ahead of the rest of the field in the Bundesliga. I expect their semifinal will determine the eventual Cup winner.

    Quarterfinals

    St. Pölten 3 - 3* Wacker Innsbruck
    Austria Lustenau
    *2 - 2 Wattens Tirol
    LASK 2 - 0 Sturm Graz
    Amstetten 0 - 3 Salzburg

    The two home sides advanced to the final. Austria Lustenau won the "Erste Liga semifinal," while Salzburg got a huge scalp by knocking out their major competitor in Austria this year. LASK may be leading the Bundesliga, but they won't earn a Cup trophy.

    Semifinals

    Austria Lustenau 1 - 0 Wacker Innsbruck
    Salzburg 1 - 0 LASK

    The final will be May 1. Salzburg is going for their 7th Cup in 9 years. Austria Lustenau is seeking to become the first lower-division side to win since the Regionalliga's Pasching took the Cup in 2013.
