Wisla Krakow SA – SK Sturm Graz 0-7 (0-5)
Sturm Graz took the lead in the very first minute, when Tobias Breitenberger put his foot into the course of a ball shot in the centre of the field deflecting it highly over the keeper Chorazka Kapcer, only to drop into the net. After a mistake in defence in the 4th minute Wisla nearly came level as Karol Kuczek broke with a ball missed by the centre back but eventually he fired it outside the right post. In the 8th minutes the Austrians increased their lead to 2-0 as Benjamin Klug rolled the ball back from the left flank to Daniel Steinwender whose first shot bounced off but it came right back t him and this time he tossed it calmly into the right bottom corner of the goal. Kapcer had to make two spectacular saves in the 11th minute and a minute later the Polish keeper was helped out by the post. He was not helped by anyone or anything in the 13th minute however, because Wisla gave away the ball in back for which he was thanked by Breitenberger, blasting it into the open goal. At this point the result of the match seemed to have been decided. The Austrians however, did not rest on their laurels but created a golden opportunity for Well in the 19th minute but Kapcer ran out and saved. It was not before the 31st minute that the next opportunity occurred but it was missed by Wisla after Jaworski broke into the box with a few beautiful dribbles, passed the ball to Handzlik who shot on target but Schmelzer made a great save. The 37th minute saw the fourth Sturm goal, shot underneath the crossbar from a very accurate pass from Marzel Aznini, by Marc Grosse who had substituted Breinberger who in turn had scored two before going off the pitch. And it was not the end of scoring yet! Grosse backheeled the ball spectacularly to Michael Lang in the 39th minute who even managed to pull the ball past the keeper before shoving it into the net. 5-0 in the first half, a veritable knock-out …
The scoring could have continued but both Johannes Handl and Grosse missed a chance in the early minutes of the second half. In the 45th minute Kapcer pushed Fabian Well’s close-range shot to the post. In the 49th minute Konrad Handzlik’s 18-metre free kick was beautifully saved by Schmelzer. In response, Klug eased himself through the Polish defence but Kapcer saved his team again from yet another goal. In the 51st minute Handzlik blasted the post – that consolation goal just would not come about. Both keepers were doing superbly. Schmelzer palmed Lyczak’s powerful shot to the post in the 65th minute. The next minute saw the first goal of the second half but it was scored again by Sturm, when Benjamin Glug passed a cross from the right flank into the net from close range. Bartosz Zak’s shot skidded on the turf in the 72nd minute but it did not deceive Strums’ goalie. In the 77th minute Painsi laid off the ball to Sittsam perfectly but the latter failed to carry it past Kapcer. Nonetheless, a seventh goal was scored even so when Andreas Stocker eased the ball bouncing off the post from close range into the net. The Krakow team was hardly consoled by the fact that they conceded only two goals in the second half.
