Thomas Schrammel: Rapid Vienna defender fights for the ball

FC Thun opened their Europa League Group G campaign with a comfortable win over Rapid Vienna.

Christian Schneuwly scored the only goal in the first half and, despite a minor fightback from the visitors late on, Thun eased to an opening victory of the campaign.

Rapid's Marcel Sabitzer blazed an early effort over the bar before Marco Schneuwly had the first chance of merit at the other end but he could only fire wide from the edge of the box.

Brother Christian Schneuwly then fired over the bar for the Swiss as the chances came thick and fast in a frantic opening 10 minutes but neither side could find the target.

In the 19th minute Marco Schneuwly brought a brilliant save from Rapid goalkeeper Jan Novota and just moments later fired over the bar as the home side applied the pressure.

Novota had to be at his best again to deny Andreas Wittwer in the 33rd minute and two minutes later Thun had the lead their dominance deserved.

Luca Zuffi provided the pass from the left and Christian Schneuwly was on hand to fire home low from 12 yards.

The Schneuwly brothers were running the show and Marco guided a header over the bar after the break as Thun continued to torment their opponents.

Sabitzer provided some relief for the Austrians as he fired a shot from distance wide but Enrico Schirinzi and Wittwer both brought saves from Novota.

Guido Burgstaller forced the first real save from Guillaume Faivre in the 69th minute and that was followed by an effort from Thanos Petsos as the visitors pressed for an equaliser.

Faivre made two further stops from Lukas Grozurek in the last 10 minutes but Thun held out for a deserved win.
