UEFA Europa League
third round qualifying, second leg
3 – FK Austria Vienna (AUT) —— Klein pen 4′, Baumgartlinger 10′, 21′
0 – SA Ruch Chorzow (POL)
Drei Blitztore (three lightning goals) in basically the first twenty minutes by FK AUSTRIA VIENNA put to bed immediately any question of whether SA RUCH CHORZOW could recover from its defeat in the opening leg of the UEFA Europa League third round qualifying tie a week ago in Poland.
In just the fourth minute, Ruch Chorzow defender RAFAL GRODZICKI dragged down FK Austria Vienna’s Czech Republic international striker TOMAS JUN in the penalty box and was shown the straight red card; 23-year-old left back FLORIAN KLEIN immediately dispatched the spot kick for Die Veilchen.
22-year-old Austria international JULIEN BAUMGARTLINGER, who arrived at the Franz Horr Stadion last summer from German second division side TSV 1860 Munich, added his first-ever goals for FK Austria Vienna while deputizing in central midfield for fellow Austria international ZLATKO JUNUZOVIC.
