The Italian coach oversaw his first game in charge of the Premier League side, but goals from Joelinton and Tomi Correa saw the Austrians emerge victorious
Chelsea started the Antonio Conte era with a disappointing 2-0 pre-season friendly defeat at Rapid Vienna on Saturday.
The Italian was chosen as the full-time successor to Jose Mourinho, who was sacked in December, with Guus Hiddink having led Chelsea to a 10th-place finish as interim boss during a disappointing Premier League title defence last season.
The former Italy boss, lacking several first-team regulars due to their participation at Euro 2016, witnessed his side make a losing start to his tenure, though, as goals in either half from Joelinton and Tomi Correa saw Rapid celebrate the opening of their new Allianz Stadion in style.
Asmir Begovic had already made a smart save low to his left from Philipp Schobesberger by the time Rapid moved in front.
