FK Austria Race Past SK Rapid In 298th Vienna Derby

=====================================================

Energized by a quick strike just fifteen minutes into the contest, FK AUSTRIA VIENNA tacked on two more lovely goals after the halftime whistle and ran out a comfortable 3-0 Derby victor opposite their great cross-town, arch-rival SK RAPID VIENNA in the fifth round of the Austria Bundesliga.

Morocco international NACER BARAZITE has scored a whopping eight goals in five UEFA Europa League qualification matches this summer but had failed to find the back of the net in his first four Bundesliga contests entering the latest Weiner Derby. It did not take the 21-year winger long to open his domestic account, however, after taking a sharp pass from midfielder ALEXANDER GRUENWALD, the summer signing from SC Wiener Neustadt, at the neutral-site Ernst Happel Stadion at the top of the box. Barazite first arrived in the Austrian capital last winter after his loan arrangement with Dutch Eredivisie club FC Vitesse Arnhem had been terminated and English Premier League outfit FC Arsenal had canceled the remainder of his contract

The youthful Moroccan was prominent in the second goal arriving seven minutes into the second half, as well, after storming down the right wing into the box and pulling the ball back for Austria international striker ROLAND LINZ. The 30-year-old veteran striker unselfishlessly played the ball off into the path of on-rushing FK Austria Vienna midfielder ZLATKO JUNUZOVIC, who, himself, had played a clever ball to Gruenwald just prior to Barazite’s tally. The 23-year-old Austria international neatly curled the ball around SK Rapid Vienna’s Austria international goalkeeper HELGE PAYER to score his first goal of the new season and double the Violets’ advantage.

================================================================

Junuzovic, who stood second for FK Austria Vienna with nine goals in 33 Bundesliga matches last term, was at the heart of what turned out to be a fabulous tick-tack-toe movement for Linz to finish in the 66th minute. After racing into the area to latch on a return ball from Czech Republic international attacker TOMAS JUN, the creative Junuzovic squared for the veteran striker to a simply tap in from close range. Linz, for his part, now counts five goals from five matches in the Bundesliga this season and 32 goals from 46 league games for the Violets since signing from Turkish club Gaziantepspor in Janaury of 2010.

“Traumfussball — Dream Football” is how one Austrian publication described the third goal from trainer KARL DAXBACHER’s FK Austria Vienna troops.

The all-time series record between the great intra-city Viennese rivals including league and cup matches would now be as follows:

SK Rapid Vienna 124, FK Austria Vienna 109, drawn 65
