BORMIO, Italy (AP) -- Germany's Felix Neureuther used a blistering second run to edge first-leg leader Marcel Hirscher and win a World Cup night slalom Monday.

Trailing by just 0.01 after the opening run, Neureuther attacked from start to finish in his second trip down the Stelvio course for a two-leg combined time of 1 minute, 59.75 seconds.

Hirscher, the two-time defending overall World Cup winner from Austria, finished second, 0.36 seconds behind, and Manfred Moelgg of Italy moved up from sixth after the opening run to place third, 0.65 back.

Naoki Yuasa of Japan had the fastest second run and jumped from 21st to fourth.

The race was moved from Zagreb due to lack of snow in Croatia.

The men's circuit goes to Adelboden, Switzerland, for a giant slalom and slalom next weekend.
