Śląsk shoot down ten-man Budućnost

FK Budućnost Podgorica 0-2 WKS Śląsk Wrocław
A goal in each half has left the Polish visitors in a prime position to progress to the third qualifying round.

WKS Śląsk Wrocław edged closer to a place in the UEFA Champions League third qualifying round with a comfortable victory away to ten-man FK Budućnost Podgorica. 

A first-half header from Rok Elsner and Sebastian Mila's penalty four minutes after the restart put the Polish titleholders in a commanding position before next Wednesday's second leg at Municipal Stadium Wroclaw, one of Poland's UEFA EURO 2012 venues.

Things could have been so different if the Montenegrin hosts had taken the great opportunity that fell their way after two minutes, but Selmo Kurbegović missed the target from four metres. Admir Adrović was then guilty of missing another good chance before Śląsk snatched the lead through Elsner, the forward heading in Waldemar Sobota's cross.

Budućnost controlled possesion but could find no way around Śląsk's rock-solid defence and four minutes into the second half Śląsk were handed the chance to double their advantage. Djordje Djikanović's foul on Lukasz Gilkiewicz forced the referee to point to the spot and captain Mila calmly tucked in the penalty.

The spot kick knocked the spirit out of Budućnost and the hosts finished the game with ten men, substitute Flávio Júnior's foul on Gilkiewicz 11 minutes from time earning him a straight red card.
