Team
A recipe for a fantastic afternoon: "Jimmy" Hoffer cooks up a hat-trick, Stefan Maierhofer chips in with a header, Rapid serve us exquisite football and send the opponents home with scraps.

Rapid cruise to away day victory

The midfield maestro fell badly on his arm following an aerial duel, meaning he will miss our remaining fixtures.An… [Read more]
