Pasoja boosts Haka hopes

FC Haka 1-0 FC Pyunik Juha Pasoja's goal helps the Finnish side move closer to a meeting with Vålerenga IF.

Finnish side FC Haka took a step towards setting up a Scandinavian derby when they defeated FC Pyunik 1-0 in the first leg of their UEFA Champions League first qualifying round encounter in Valkeakoski.

Vålerenga await
Juha Pasoja's solitary goal left the Armenian visitors facing an uphill task if they are to progress to the second qualifying round, where Vålerenga IF, the team who finished second in Norway last year, lie in wait.

First-half strike
Haka, who won the Finnish First Division in 2004 but trail leaders Myllykosken Pallo-47 by six points at the halfway stage of the current campaign, went ahead through 28-year-old defender Pasoja midway through the first half.

Damage limitation
However, last season's runaway Armenian Premier League champions Pyunik managed to limit the damage and will hope to overturn the 1-0 deficit when they stage the second leg next Wednesday.
