Horváth goal enough for Újpest

Újpesti TE 1-0 KÍ Klaksvík (Agg: 3-2) Solitary strike breaks KÍ's resolve.

Újpesti TE 1-0 KÍ Klaksvík (Újpest win 3-2 on aggregate)
A 37th-minute goal from Ferenc Horváth proved sufficient for Újpesti TE to advance to the first round of the UEFA Cup at KÍ Klaksvík's expense.

Heroic defending
Although the Hungarians won 3-2 on aggregate, they never looked in danger at the Megyeri úti stadium, and only some heroic defending from the Faroe Islanders kept them in the match. It took a neat move from the Violets to finally break the visitors' stubborn resolve with Újpest captain Zoltan Kovács playing in former international team-mate Horváth for the only goal.

KÍ come close
KÍ's best chance came seven minutes from time when substitute attacker Bjarte Vatlestad had a solo effort through the Hungarian defence but Géza Vlaszák saved for the home side.

Improvement needed
"The team could have scored more goals and should have concentrated better, because there were enough chances to win by a wider margin," Újpest's caretaker coach László Molnár said.
