EB/Streymur, Shirak safely through

EB/Streymur and Shirak both progressed from the UEFA Champions League first qualifying round.

Faroese side EB/Streymur built on its 2-2 draw with Lusitanos in the first leg to hammer the Andorran outfit 5-1 in the return at home, securing emphatic progression 7-3 on aggregate.

Arnbjorn Hansen got his side off to the best possible start, scoring after just three minutes, before Levi Hanssen added a second seven minutes from the break.

Luis Dos Reis pulled one back for the Andorran side after 66 minutes before Gunnar Zachariasen made it 3-1 six minutes later.

Hanssen then doubled his tally with time running out to put the result beyond doubt, before Leif Niclasen made it five and booked a place in the next round, where his side will take on Dinamo Tbilisi.

Shirak made sure of its progression with a 3-1 aggregate win, despite a 1-0 defeat on the night away at Tre Penne.

The Armenian side's 3-0 first-leg lead proved decisive as a Samuel Kyere own goal just two minutes in gave the host hope of a comeback.

However, it was unable to build on the lead, even with Davit Marikyan sent off for the visitor in the 90th minute.

Shirak will now take on Partizan Belgrade in the second-qualifying round next week.
