Christoph Knasmüllner was introduced at half time in place of goal scorer Thomas Murg in Kühbauer's only change. A great atmosphere was ringing down from the Block West where Nürnberg and Rapid flags were flying alongside each other, but on the pitch, chances were few and far between. Petrak came the closest for the Germans, testing Richard Strebinger from distance (74.).
But the Green & Whites saved the best for last and produced a flowing move worthy of winning the game: An arrowed pass from substitute Niki Wunsch found Mert Müldür, who played the ball first time into the middle of the goal for Knasmüllner to turn home with a simple finish - 2:1 (80.)! The match was a good work out for Rapid as they round off their pre-season preparations against a quality opponent in a special atmosphere of fan solidarity! RAPID and FCN!!
