FCK rack up lead

FC København 4-1 Sliema Wanderers FC Three goals before half-time give Danish side the initiative.

FC København are in a good position to progress into the UEFA Champions League third qualifying round after a 4-1 home first-leg win against Maltese title-holders Sliema Wanderers FC.

Zuma opens scoring
The Danish champions took time to take control of the match, but went ahead in the 23rd minute when Erik Mykland found South African striker Sibusiso Zuma, who sent a fine shot into the top left-hand corner of the visitors' goal.

Lead increased
Four minutes later, Zuma was fouled in the penalty area and Thomas Røll Larsen sent the resulting spot-kick into the same corner as the opening effort. Just before half-time, Todi Jónsson scored FCK's third when he ran on to a through-ball and worked himself a shooting chance, which he took decisively.

Second-half goals
Sliema pulled a goal back six minutes into the second half as Danilo Doncic beat the home offside trap and coolly finished. However, Røll Larsen headed his second of the night from a Hjalte Nørregaard cross 25 minutes from the end to restore FCK's three-goal cushion. The return is in Malta next Wednesday, with the winners facing Scottish champions Rangers FC.
