Victory in the first game of the year | Top spot defended | 3 goals to overturn half-time defecit | Werner (2) and Sabitzer on the scoresheet

Comeback complete! The Bulls found themselves a goal down at the break but managed to turn the game around in front of (42,146) spectators at the Red Bull Arena.
 
Julian Nagelsmann's team went behind after Marius Bütler slotted an early goal past Péter Gulácsi (10'). But the boys continued to apply the pressure and came up with the response in the second half.
 
Timo Werner equalised with a thunderous volley (51'), before captain Marcel Sabitzer put his team in front, scrambling the ball into the net after a corner (57'). Werner then put the game to bed with his 20th league goal of the season (83').
