Austria moved clear at the top of the Group G standings in Euro 2016 qualifying as they edged out Montenegro 1-0 at home.
Rubin Okotie's first-half strike was all that separated the teams on the night in Vienna, but it was enough to send Austria two points clear with Russia being held by Moldova in Moscow.
While victory by a single goal hardly looked convincing, Austria dominated possession and were worthy winners against a team level on points with them before kick-off.
Austria wasted little time...
Austria claimed their first victory of the Euro 2016 qualifying campaign with a 2-1 triumph over Moldova on Thursday night.
They opened with a 1-1 draw against Sweden and took the lead in Chisinau when David Alaba netted from the penalty spot.
Alexandru Dedov equalised with another effort from 12 yards but Marc Janko grabbed the winner before being sent off in the closing stages for a foul on Moldova goalkeeper Ilie Cebanu.
The Austrians had the lead after 14 minutes when Ion Jardan pulled back Janko...
Zlatan Ibrahimovic joked that he should be given a 40-game ban after he was accused of elbowing David Alaba during Sweden's 1-1 draw with Austria on Monday.
Ibrahimovic's arm appeared to strike Alaba in the face during the 20th minute of the Euro 2016 qualifier, with the Bayern Munich player falling to the ground after the contact.
The incident led to a free kick for Austria, while Ibrahimovic was booked minutes later for a separate foul on Martin Harnik.
