The Red Bulls started with a lot of pressure and immediately kept the visitors busy in their defensive zone. However, the visitors soon joined in the fun and initially kept the game open, with both teams hitting the bar once. After the Red Bulls survived a moment of shock - Cedric Lacroix suddenly found himself alone in front of goalkeeper David Kickert, who prevented anything worse (6th) - they took the lead almost immediately. Mario Huber extended in front of the goal through the legs of Feldkirch goalkeeper David Madlener during the powerplay (7.). From that moment on, Salzburg dominated the game and increased the lead to 3-0 with two goals from Thomas Raffl by the first intermission. Once the captain was released on the left and didn't hesitate long (12th), then on the power play (16th) he converted the pass at the right post. The lead was highly deserved and could have been even higher based on the chances.
In the second half, the home team dominated the game, but was a bit too playful in front of goal. The guests were now more dangerous and took advantage of a confusion in front of David Kickert (33rd), Steven Owre reduced the score to 1:3 after a rebound. After that it went back and forth, now David Kickert was also regularly challenged and defused several good opportunities of the guests. Shortly before the second intermission, however, the Red Bulls restored the 3-goal lead when Tyler Lewington scored from half distance to make it 4:1 (40th).
In the final period, both teams exchanged quick blows. The Red Bulls continued to be the more active team, but had to work hard to create chances. This was rewarded. Peter Schneider scored from an acute angle in the second period (49th). After that, the Red Bulls had the game under control again and Peter Schneider scored again just two and a half minutes later on the power play after a poke (52nd) for a 6:1 lead and, just like two days ago in Hungary, scored another brace. Steven Owre from Feldkirch also scored a second time after a breakaway (54th), but that did nothing to diminish the ultimately clear home victory of the Red Bulls, who are at the top of the table for the first time after four rounds with four wins.
