Malmo misery goes on

Austria Vienna inflicted more Europa League misery on hosts Malmo to get their own Group G campaign off and running with a 2-1 victory at the Swedbank Stadion.

The Swedish side had been hammered 4-1 by AZ Alkmaar on matchday one and were hoping home advantage would inspire them to an improved display.

But instead it was Vienna, themselves beaten 2-1 at home by Metalist Kharkiv last time out, who secured the win courtesy of first-half goals from Nacer Barazite and Alexander Grunwald.

Substitute Agon Mehmeti pulled one back for Malmo eight minutes from time and Vienna had Emir Dilaver was dismissed late on but it was not enough to drag the home side back into the match.

Malmo had started brightly, Daniel Larsson and Ricardinho both working goalkeeper Pascal Grunwald in the opening 10 minutes.

Mathias Ranegie was next to chance his arm for the home side but this time the shot went high over the crossbar.

Vienna, meanwhile, had only had a couple of hopeful shies at goal before Barazite broke the deadlock in the 17th minute.

Zlatko Junuzovic fed the striker from the left, via a slight deflection, and he proceeded to turn and fire low into the corner.

Vienna slowed the tempo again after the goal and waited for a chance to break, which came after only four minutes.

Again Baracite was the target and he forced a diving save from Johan Dahlin, who managed to tip the ball out for a corner.

Malmo continued to get plenty of possession but were too often guilty of shooting from distance instead of working the ball closer to goal.

Jiloan Hamad and Ranegie were both guilty of that before the visitors' second.

Florian Klein and Junuzovic combined in midfield to play the ball to Grunwald, who slotted into the far corner with a first-time effort.

Both sides attacked in the second period, Alexander Gorgon and Junozovic both striking wide for Vienna and Markus Suttner missing with a free-kick for Malmo.

Dahlin made a fantastic double save 20 minutes from time, repelling Suttner's effort and then somehow beating away Junuzovic's effort from the resulting corner.

Mehmeti, a first-half replacement for Larsson, eventually got his side on the scoresheet after 82 minutes, getting on the end of Ricardinho's cross and nodding home.

Goalkeeper Dahlin came up in the closing seconds and headed wide from a corner but the only late drama involved Dilaver's red card for a clumsy foul.
