The title race could be back on in Austria after Red Bull Salzburg slipped to a shock 2-0 defeat away to struggling Kapfenberg tonight.

David Sencar opened the scoring in the 11th minute, and Deni Alar sealed the points 20 minutes from time as Salzburg tasted defeat for only the third time this season.

That means they lead by six points from Rapid Vienna, who face third-placed city rivals Austria Vienna tomorrow night.

If Rapid are able to win the capital derby, Salzburg must defend a three-point lead through their final two games of the season.
