LASK had a hard time preventing embarrassment in the ÖFB Cup. The Bundesliga leaders had to spend extra time in a 4-1 win over third-division team SC Imst in the second round. Bundesliga runner-up Sturm beat Austria Salzburg 3-1 in Graz with short concussions, and Wydad confidently reached the round of 16 with a 5-1 victory in Deutschlandsburg.
In Imst, the second LASK suit was not necessary for future missions. Robert Zollge missed a penalty just before the end of the first half. After the red card against Philippe Zeres (62′ / emergency brake), Armin Hamza left the sensation of his goal with a header (72′).
Substitute Keito Nakamura saved LASK from early embarrassment (86th place). While the Tyrolean fans were still celebrating their team reaching overtime, Florian Flicker took the killer mood (94 minutes), Nakamura made the decision (104), and Marin Ljubicic scored the final score (118).
Austria Salzburg overwhelmed
In Graz, 7118 spectators, including 1,000 from Salzburg, watched the match on one goal. The leader of the standings in the regional league Salzburg did without a defensive battle, but was overshadowed by the intensity and speed of the runner-up. The weak Manpreet Sarkaria recently made his mark on the atmosphere match with a double (12, 79 / penalty kick) and an ‘assist’ for Mathias Hausberger’s goal (29).
Sturm-Elf, who changed six positions, was left out with his countless chances without Rasmus Hoglund. Alexander Brass alone could have decided the game several times. So Marinko Sorda provided the temporary goal (71) and the short thrill in a one-sided match.
Wydad did not tremble
The WAC in Deutschlandsburg did not have to shiver for long. Tai Paribou (8) and Dario Wezinger (12) converted two penalties to lead 2-0 in the first half. Wiesinger (51st), Tierno Ballou (77th) and Nicholas Verachnig (87th) have once again increased from Carinthia’s point of view. Andreas Fuchs scored the goal of honor (86) for the club from Regionalliga Mete.
