Austria or Salzburg – In the Premiership title race who do the remaining fixtures favour?


With five games left to play in the Austrian Premiership Austria have a 6 points lead over Salzburg, who will be our opponents in the final game of the season.

The tables below show where each side has lost points in the thirty-one matches played. If as I believe (hope and pray) Austria win the title it will in part be thanks to the performances of our local rivals Rapid against Salzburg.

Looking at the remaining five games, of Salzburg’s remaining opponents four of the teams have taken points from them this season – Admira, Wiener Neustadt, Ried, and Austria. In comparison Austria have to face only two teams against whom they have dropped points, Wiener Neustadt and Salzburg.

WAC D:W   Admira D:D
Wiener Neustadt D   Austria D:D
Rapid D   Neustadt D

      WAC D

A six point lead and a better record against our remaining opponents, this should be Austria’s title. However, things might be tricky if we need a point on the last day of the season away to Salzburg.
