Salzburg claimed their seventh Austrian league title on Sunday after winning 5-1 at Wiener Neustadt in their penultimate game of the season.

The emphatic victory took them six points clear of nearest rivals Rapid Vienna, meaning they cannot be overtaken. Defending champions Sturm Graz, meanwhile, are 17 points off the pace in fifth position.

It was a fourth national title for Salzburg since the club were taken over by Dietrich Mateschitz, founder of the energy drink company Red Bull, in 2005.

Salzburg will attempt to complete the Austrian double for the first time in their history when they meet Ried in the Austrian Cup final on 20 May.
