Ten-man Salzburg victorious
Rabiu Afolabi scored the only goal as league leaders Salzburg won away at third-placed Rapid Vienna despite playing much of the second half with ten men.
Rapid could have moved level on points at the summit with victory today.
And they would have been encouraged when Franz Schiemer collected a second yellow card 11 minutes after the interval.
But Afolabi struck in the 67th minute to ensure his side remained five points clear of Austria Vienna, with Rapid a further point behind.
