Patson Daka continued with his fine form, scoring for the second League game in a row as Salzburg claimed a 4-1 win over Altach on Saturday.
Daka was on target last week after the Red Bulls started their title defence in fine fashion with a 3-1 win over Wolfsberger away from home.
Salzburg were reduced to 10 men with Andre Ramalho Silva getting a straight red card in just after six minutes. It turned worse for the home team with Johannes Tartarotti giving the visitors the lead in the 33rd minute.
That lead was short-lived however with Daka winning a penalty two minutes later and Dominik Szoboszlai doing the required job of dispatching the spot-kick. Daka then made it 2-1 for Salzburg five minutes to the half-time whistle with the assist coming from Mali forward Sekou Koita.
Koita got himself a goal immediately after the break and Rasmus Kristensen sealed the romping win in the 63rd minute.
It was an African show for Salzburg in this fixture. Another Zambian in Enock Mwepu played the entire match in midfield while Ghana midfielder Majeed Ashimeru came on for Masaya Okugawa in the 77th minute.
Mali midfielder Mohamed Camara was replaced by Antoine Bernede in the 64th minute while Mergim Berisha took Koita’s place and Cameroon defender Jerome Onguene replaced Szoboszlai, all in the same minute.
Salzburg’s next assignment comes against Israeli side Maccabi Tel Aviv in the Champions League qualifiers on Tuesday.
