A revitalised Green & White outfit emerged at the start of the second period and began proving too much for their opponents and just minutes after the restart Louis Schaub put Rapid ahead: a blocked ball into the box from Stefan Schwab landed on the other side of the penalty area at the feet of Mario Pavelic. The right back swung the ball into the box, right into the goal mouth, where Louis Schaub was on hand to turn the ball over the line with his chest - 2:1 and Rapid had come from behind (52.)!
Just as Zoran Barisic was looking to start protecting Rapid's lead by sending on the defensively minded Grahovac for Steffen Hofmann, the Green & Whites doubled their advantage: a cross from Petsos was heading towards Schaub, who failed to get a touch on the ball, but obviously did enough to distract Plzen keeper Kozacik as the ball evaded him and carried on straight into the back of the net - 3:1 (67.)! The Hüttledorfers now smelt blood and went in search of a killer fourth, but desperate defending from the Czech's managed to scramble a Stangl cross to safety, before Jelic fired narrowly wide of the target (72.). However it was the guests who grabbed another, as Hrosovsky halved his side's arrears with a well-placed long range effort that comfortably beat Novota to insert some tension back into the match - 3:3 (76.).
But the Green & Whites professionally ran the clock down and yielded no more chances to their tricky opponents. Its three wins out of three now for the Hütteldorfers in Group E, who top the table at the half way stage!
