Austria Tipico Bundesliga Results

Austrian Football Bundesliga Intro

If you want to bet on a sport, you must know its ins and outs. The leagues, the teams, the players… New information never stops pouring in, and it can be a bit overwhelming. That’s why we here at Betting Fellow are making these league overviews. None of them will instantly make you know everything there is to know about a country’s football, but they can act as a sort of cheat sheet to get you started.

We’re continuing our overview of European professional football leagues with the Austrian Football Bundesliga.

Austrian Football Bundesliga History and General Info

This is the top-tier national league in Austria, and it consists of the 12 biggest and most successful association football teams in the country. And yes, we realise that the name is a bit of a mouthful and will be annoying to repeat throughout this article – but it is important to note that most top-tier national sports competitions in Austria are dubbed Bundesliga, and it is just as important to differentiate it from its somewhat more famous cousin in Germany.

This league ranks as the twelfth best national league in Europe, as per UEFA’s association coefficient rankings. It reached the 16th position at the end of the 2015-16 season, which means it also gained its first spot for the UEFA Champions League the next year.

It is currently known as the Tipico Bundesliga, due to a sponsorship deal with the bookmaker Tipico.

The first efforts towards creating a unified national league in Austria began at the very start of the 20th century. The efforts resulted in the introduction of the first Austrian football championship in 1911. The very best teams at the time competed as parts of the First Class, as part of the same championship.

From 1924, the league was considered professional and changed its name to the First League. It is also important to note that Austria is officially a federation of 9 states. Back in the day, only teams from Lower Austria – the state of Vienna and its surroundings – were allowed to compete. This lasted to 1937, after which the league was elevated to a truly national level. At this point, the Austrian Football Association was responsible for how the Austrian Football Bundesliga was run and managed.

The second half of the 20th century saw Austrian football divided over many issues, such as representatives of amateur and professional clubs not agreeing on how the Austrian Football Bundesliga should be managed. As such, the current format of this league, and its status as the undisputed highest level of football in the country, did not come about until 1974.

In 1991, the league was reconstituted as a federation, meaning they were largely independent of most of the other levels of the competition. They are still part of the Association, only they carry their own responsibilities as a separate entity.

A typical championship year is divided into two smaller seasons: an autumn season and a spring season. Typically, all of this lasts from July to June next year.

The Austrian Football Bundesliga has a fairly standard format. The 10 teams each play every other team twice, once on home ground and once away. They are then ranked based on acquired points, where every game won awards a team 3 points, and a draw game awards only 1.

At the end of the season, the team with the least points is relegated to the Second League (Currently known as the Sky Go Erste Liga).

The best-placed team is named Austrian champion and qualifies for the UEFA Champions League along with the runners-up. The 3rd and 4th placed teams enter the qualification rounds for the Europa League, along with the winner of the Austrian Cup.

The most decorated team in the history of the Austrian Football Bundesliga is Rapid Wien with 32 titles and 26 second places. Behind them is Austria Wien with 24 titles and 19 runner-up positions, followed by Red Bull Salzburg with 13 titles.

The overall top scorer throughout the league’s history is Hans Krankl, who played for several teams throughout his career. He is an extremely prolific striker with 270 goals over 361 appearances. Next in line is Ivica Vastić with 187 goals over 441 appearances.

The record for most appearances instead goes to Heribert Weber with an impressive 579 matches total.

Austrian Football Bundesliga Title Challengers

To get a good sense of how the different teams compare to each other in terms of performance this year, we’ll take a look at some Austrian Football Bundesliga betting odds, as provided by leading online bookmakers. This information should be key for any Austrian Bundesliga betting you might be planning.

Red Bull Salzburg is leading these rankings, which is not surprising given how they’ve won every season since 2013. Right behind them are traditional favourites Rapid Wien, with a solid yet unimpressive 5/1 or 6.00.

LASK Linz are a rather surprising outlier this year, promising to bring a better team than ever before. Some bookies even believe they have better chances than Rapid.

Austria Wien is, sadly, no-where near the top of the listings. Their last title was in the 2012-13 season, and experts have noticed a sharp drop in the quality of their game since.

Rapid Wien

Sportklub Rapid Wien, quite often referred to as Rapid Vienna, are historically the country’s most successful club. They can trace their origins back to the beginnings of professional football in Austria, namely to their founding in 1899. Since then, they’ve won 32 Austrian Championships, 14 Austrian Cups, and even a German Cup during World War 2.

Internationally, they reached the European Cup Winners' Cup finals twice, in 1985 and 1996, but lost on both occasions.

It was initially known as the Erster Wiener Arbeiter-Fußball-Club (the First Viennese Workers' Football Club) but was renamed in 1899, following the example of Rapide Berlin. They went on to win the first-ever Austrian championship in 1911.

Rapid’s fans are famed for the practice of synchronised rhythmic chapping during the last 15 minutes of any match, no matter the score.

The club performed below expectations last season, coming close to being relegated even though they experienced some success with the cup and in the Europa League. For whatever reason, the team’s management seems set in their ways – although they are showing signs of improvement in the pre-season. Currently, however, Rapid’s status as a historical favourite seems their strongest aspect.

FC Red Bull Salzburg

An absolutely dominating presence in the last few years, Salzburg is probably currently Austria’s best football team with 13 league titles, 6 Austrian Cups (all of which were won as doubles) and 3 Austrian Supercups.

Due to sponsorship restrictions, they are known as FC Salzburg and wear a modified crest while playing in UEFA competitions. Salzburg being the birthplace of the famous composer Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, they are also sometimes referred to as Die Mozartstädter.

FC Salzburg was founded in 1933 as SV Austria Salzburg. Their real rise to prominence did not start until the 70s, however, when they managed to reach the Bundesliga for the first time, along with their first UEFA Cup qualification.

The Red Bull company purchased and rebranded the club in 2006. They were dead-set on treating it as a completely new club, changing Salzburg’s crest and colours to the dismay of many fans. This divided the fanbase, prompting some supporters to refuse this new, commercialised club, and found a separate SV Austria Salzburg.

Be that as it may, the team reached new heights under Red Bull’s wing. They employ a rather interesting strategy centred around relatively low possession, which goes against most current trends. They instead focus on using their midfielders for transitional movements and rapid counter-attacks.

They’re coming into this next season on top of their form, and are doubtless the overall favourites in the Austrian Football Bundesliga.

LASK Linz

Officially named Linzer Athletik-Sport-Klub, this is the oldest football club in the Upper-Austrian state. Founded in 1908, LASK is not among the country’s most decorated teams, but they’re coming into this season in exceptionally strong form, and are worth paying attention to.

LASK’s greatest achievements came during the 60s when they managed to win their first and only Austrian championship title to date. Specifically, they snagged a double in the 1964-65 season.

They spent the rest of their history in and out of the Bundesliga, always managing to be promoted right back. The last time this happened was in 2017, after which they completely turned things around and were runners-up last year. As such, they have fairly good chances of placing high on the leaderboard this year, despite the somewhat lacklustre history.

They were forced to hire a new manager in the meantime, but the core of last year’s successful squad has remained the same. Their strategy revolves around a strong back-line defence, so the biggest hurdle LASK is currently facing is obtaining a reliable finisher.

Austrian Football Bundesliga Relegation Favourites

On the flip side, these are some teams considered most likely to be relegated into the second tier of the Austrian league system.

Wolfsberger AC

This club was founded in 1931, but they spent the majority of this long history in lower leagues. They climbed up into the Bundesliga in 2012 for the first time in their history, marking the past decade or so as the team’s most successful years. They had a fairly good run in the 2018-19 season, but that is projected to quickly change considering they lost some of the strongest points of their squad and their outstanding manager.

SV Mattersburg

This team made their way into top-flight Austrian football in 2003 and have remained there ever since, although with fairly mediocre results all-round. Their biggest success is a third-place standing in the 2006-07 season. They’re coming into this season amidst controversial changes in management, which never seem to be good news for any team.

Austrian Football Bundesliga Top Players

Another important thing you need to consider for Austrian Football Bundesliga betting is the individual players – this can give you a solid idea of a team’s playstyle, which can be key information depending on the market you decide to go for.

Hwang Hee-chan

There is no shortage of talent among strikers in Salzburg’s squad, but this young South Korean player has still caught the eyes of many. Even though he is not even a constant part of the team’s starting eleven, centre-forward Hwang is among the Bundesliga’s most valued players.

He absolutely shined during last year’s Europa League, contributing greatly to Salzburg’s success. He is described as an extremely energetic striker, constantly darting through the opposing defence. Couple that with some great dribbling skills and pinpoint passing, and it’s easy to see why Hwang is a cut above the rest. Not to mention his current team’s strategy and playstyle fit him perfectly.

Maximilian Wöber

An Austrian native, Wöber first rose to prominence in Ajax and Sevilla, distinguishing himself as a young defender full of potential. He’s coming “home” to Salzburg in preparation for the coming season, and many believe that he will be a perfect fit.

Despite his unfortunate history of frequent injuries, the 21-year-old centre-back is an intelligent player, always able to position himself in just the right way to throw off the opponents’ attacking strategy. He was an important part of the Ajax team who had an absolutely sensational run at last years Champions League.

Alexander Schlager

LASK’s young goalkeeper, Schlager is the Austrian Bundesliga’s most distinguished goalies. He plays for the Austrian national team as well, and has been turning a lot of heads considering this is a position whose importance is often overlooked.

Schlager is an important part of LASK’s impenetrable defence, which is widely considered their greatest asset. Since this goalie joined their roster, things have only been going up for LASK.

Austrian Football Bundesliga Rising Stars

Now we’ll turn attention to the some of Bundesliga’s most promising young talent. These players are all great in their own right, but we’re predicting that their time is yet to come.

Dominik Szoboszlai

At only 19 years of age, this Hungarian midfielder can already boast a double Austrian championship as part of Salzburg’s squad. He was pushed into the spotlight near the end of last year’s season when he scored three times despite very limited time in the pitch. Szoboszlai is described as lightning-fast, with an exceedingly powerful kick and great vision. He is already being scouted by Europe’s finest clubs, which reportedly include Arsenal.

Karim Adeyemi

This is what we meant by no shortage of attacking talent in Salzburg – here we have another player who checks all the boxes: a young, talented centre-forward who is only projected to keep getting even better. Adeyemi is only 18, but is already in the crosshairs of teams like Barcelona and Bayern Munich.

Austrian Football Bundesliga Derby Matches

Wiener Derby

This derby is probably the biggest of its kind in Austria, and is the matchup between the two biggest teams from the capital of Vienna: FK Austria Wien and SK Rapid Wien. Although their glory days are behind them, these are still the most decorated teams in Austria’s history, making for some very exciting matches.

Support today is mainly split along geographical lines: the northern and western parts of Vienna are Rapids’, while the city’s couth is synonymous with FK Austria. However, historically speaking this rivalry has some sociological underpinnings, which explains its importance to Austrian football culture. Namely, Rapid was founded as the “Worker’s Club” of Vienna, leaving Austria as the “bourgeois” team.

In a similar fashion, a lot of Austria’s cities have their own city derbies. These include the Graz derby between Grazer AK and Sturm Graz, the Linz Derby between FC Blau-Weiß Linz and LASK Linz, and several smaller ones.

Austrian Football Superliga Best Stadiums

Red Bull Arena

Also known as the EM-Stadion Wals-Siezenheim and, during UEFA club football event, as Stadion Salzburg. This is, somewhat predictably, the home ground of Red Bull Salzburg. It was opened in 2003 and can host just over 31,000 spectators.

Allianz Stadion

This stadium was built on the site as the old Gerhard Hanappi Stadium to be the new home of Rapid Wien. To comply with UEFA’s sponsorship regulations, it also sometimes uses its non-commercial name Weststadon. Construction started in 2014 after a ceremonial demolition of Rapid’s previous home and was finalised in 2016. The Allianz Stadion can house 28,000 people.
