Sturm replaced Salzburg in the Bundesliga as champions

In a patient game full of stormy chances, central defender Grigory Wuthrich saved the 15,325 fans in Groß-Libena with a header from a corner in the 69th minute. Just before the end, “Joker” Amadi Kamara (90th) scored three points. Successful coach Christian Ilzer’s side secured their first championship title in 13 years with a two-point lead, securing a lucrative permanent place in the Champions League. Now four-time champions Sturm can celebrate a double century after winning the ÖFB Cup.

Salzburg have been champions of the Austrian top flight without interruption since 2014. This time, a season-ending 7-1 win over Lask wasn’t enough, and Austria’s top team’s season ended without a title. Sekov Koida (7th, 71st), Luka Sucic (8th, 61st/incorrect penalty), Strahinja Pavlovic (36th), Karim Konade (68th), Torgelus Nene (78th) played for the “Red Bulls”. With 20 goals this season, the latter has the best chance of taking the top scorer’s crown, and the remaining European Cup play-off games are also taken into account for the rating. LASK, who were already third, livened things up, at least in the short term, thanks to Moses Usor (25th).

DSV Hartberg have booked their ticket to the European Cup play-off final, with the last international starting spot up against either WAC or Wiener Austria. Styrians celebrated a 3-0 win at SK Rapid in the last round of 32, finishing the season in fifth place. Tonias Avdijaj (25th) with his 12th goal of the season, Tobias Caines (59th) with his first goal of 2023/24 and Dominic Braiser (92nd) ensured a deserved victory. With their points tally perfected after the regular round, Vienna was tied for fourth place. Hopes of an amicable conclusion to the season did not materialize for the hosts at the Allianz Stadium.
