Sturm beat Salzburg to meet Rabbit in the cup final

Sturm Cross showed how to “take off” the 4-3 series winner in the ÖFB Cup semi-final against Salzburg. A semi-final win earns a ticket to the final, which awaits at Rapid Klagenfurt on May 1, just like last year.

Salzburg. Sturm Kroos impressively showed Austrian football how to dismantle reigning champions Salzburg. In the cup semi-finals, “Swossen” played very well and defeated a surprisingly poorly organized Salzburg 4:3. Positional errors, rare mistakes by goalkeeper Schlager and game mentality, organization, pace and desire in response. Christian Ilzer's side advanced to the final with this demonstration and will face Rabat at the European Championship Stadium in Klagenfurt on May 1, just like they did last year. Won 2-0 in 2023.

It remains to be seen what this defeat means for Salzburg in the eight rounds of the Bundesliga that are still open. No other club has been able to put the league champions and reigning champions under so much pressure. Sturm, thanks to Georgian Kittishvili, was the dominant player in the game, but not the home team, whose coach Gerhard Struber was remarkably quiet after conceding all the goals. They haven't conceded four goals in Walls-Seissenheim since a 4-1 defeat against Altach in 2009.

Solette (12th) made a successful debut, but then the bull stable began to falter. Bowing (25th), Horvath (51st) and Schneck (71st) scored for Sturm. Sucic (80th) gave hope again, which crumbled after a corner and a header from Geuerhofer (81st). There was a slight increase in opposition when Tercic (90th) reduced the score to 3:4. It was just a wish. Given this game, it's hard to imagine the last time this team won 1-0 in the league.
