Vardar make impressive start

FK Vardar 3-0 Barry Town AFC Oliveira Wandeir Dos Santos scores twice to beat Welsh champions.

F.Y.R. Macedonian title-holders FK Vardar made a flying start to their UEFA Champions League campaign with a 3-0 first qualifying round home leg victory against Welsh side Barry Town AFC.

Dos Santos double
Brazilian striker Oliveira Wandeir Dos Santos was on top form for Vardar with two of the goals, either side of an effort from Dejan Ristovski. It seemed Barry had subdued Vardar for much of the first half, but Dos Santos delighted the 5,000 home fans on 37 minutes with the opening goal.

Victory sealed
Ristovski doubled Vardar's advantage four minutes after the break. Dos Santos then claimed his second goal of the night 21 minutes from full time to complete the joint-biggest victory margin of the 2003/04 Champions League's opening night and make Vardar hot favourites to progress to meet PFC CSKA Moskva of Russia in the second qualifying round.
