The Austrians attempted two river crossings but were confronted by substantial French Forces at both.
Lannes’s aggressively pushed his lead division against the Austrian grenadiers guarding the southern crossing in a series of hard charges, this eventually drove back the front line but the Austrian grenadiers, supported by a line division were able to retake the ground and Lannes was not able to push through.
At the northern crossing, Vandamme confronted the Austrians after they’d already made a bridgehead. While the Austrian avant garde, supported by a hussar brigade was able to drive back his supporting brigade, his lead elements of infantry and chasseurs à cheval were able to bottle up Hiller’s line division inside the town and the Austrians were compelled to withdraw back across the river.
