Two goals worth seeing gave Sturm three points


Jakob Jantscher managed a double in Graz's 3-2 win against WSG Tirol – as did guest striker Nikolai Baden Frederiksen.

Two goals worth seeing gave Sturm three points

When Nikolai Baden-Frederiksen circled a free kick from an acute angle into the Kreuzeck after a quarter of an hour, it seemed as if WSG Tirol's successful run would continue in Graz. The young Dane, on loan from Juventus Turin, once again demonstrated his excellent shooting technique with this goal, but also benefited from striker goalkeeper Jörg Siebenhandl, who apparently had not expected a direct free kick.

The early 0: 1 deficit had no effect on the home side. It took less than 120 seconds for the Tyroleans to take the lead again: Jakob Jantscher pushed the ball over the line (17th) from close range and only six minutes later did a perfect double. His 2: 1 earned the title worth seeing: From the edge of the penalty area he sank a free kick in the corner.

No less spectacular was the third goal from Graz, who clearly dictated the game from the 0: 1 onwards. Stefan Hierländer saw that WSG goalkeeper Ferdinand Oswald was standing too far in front of the goal and lifted the ball from 30 meters over the stunned goalie – 3: 1 (33rd).

Graz could even have led clearly, if not had to. Ex-WSG striker Kelvin Yeboah alone had five top-class chances to score.

The negligence in front of the gate almost took revenge. Virtually out of nowhere, Frederiksen brought the WSG back into the game with a header (71.). But Sturm brought the lead over the distance and remains unbeaten against WSG Tirol.
