Vienna fightback earns draw

Austria Vienna came from behind to salvage a 2-2 draw against AZ Alkmaar in their Europa League Group G clash at the Franz Horr Stadium.

Rasmus Elm put Eredivisie leaders AZ in front from the penalty spot before Pontus Wernbloom doubled the lead on the stroke of half time.

Vienna then levelled the match with two goals in three minutes after the break when Manuel Ortlechner fired home before Nacer Barazite found the back of the net from close range.

The result means AZ remain second in the group on six points, one ahead of Vienna, after group leaders FC Metalist Kharkiv beat winless Malmo 3-1 to extend their lead to four points.

AZ dominated the first half and deserved their 2-0 lead going in to the break.

However, it was the home side who had the first real chance when AZ midfielder Simon Poulsen fouled Zlatko Junuzovic to give Vienna a free-kick in a dangerous area.

Florian Mader took the free-kick and picked out Barazite in the area who struck his shot over the bar.

Wernbloom then gave the hosts another chance to score when he gifted them another free-kick, but Junuzovic's 30-yard effort was caught by AZ goalkeeper Esteban Alvarado.

Vienna defender Margreitter then conceded a penalty and Elm stepped up and coolly slotted the ball past Heinza Lindner who dived the wrong way.

AZ then began to turn the screw with Brett Holman and Adam Maher forcing saves from the Sturm goalkeeper before Roy Beerens saw his shot go wide.

Elm was instrumental in AZ's second when his outswinging corner picked out Wernbloom in the middle of the box who headed the ball past Lindner in the 44th minute to give the Dutch side a comfortable two-goal cushion at half-time.

However, the lead was soon wiped out after the break as Vienna hit back twice in quick succession to level the score.

Michael Liendl fired in a cross which found Roland Linz in the area whose close-range effort was blocked by Alvarado.

Ortlechner followed up the rebound and poked the ball into the back of the net in the 58th minute.

Three minutes later, Vienna were level after Alvarado failed to hold Tomas Jun's powerful shot which allowed Barazite to smash home the loose ball.

AZ peppered the Vienna defence as they tried to regain their lead, but they failed to find the breakthrough and had to settle for their third draw of their European campaign.
