No-nonsense Neftchi in control

PFC Neftchi 2-0 FH Hafnarfjördur The Azerbaijani champions edge closer to meeting with RSC Anderlecht.

Azerbaijani club PFC Neftchi edged closer to a meeting with RSC Anderlecht by defeating FH Hafnarfjördur 2-0 in the first leg of their UEFA Champions League first qualifying round tie in Baku.

Dream encounter
Goals from Agil Mammadov and Tomislav Mishura gave Neftchi a healthy lead to take into next Wednesday's second leg in Iceland. Despite having maximum points from their opening ten Icelandic Premier League matches this season, Hafnarfjördur struggled in the heat and will have to score at least twice next week to keep alive dreams of a second round encounter with Belgian giants Anderlecht.

Last-minute strike
After a tight opening 20 minutes, it was 33-year-old midfielder Mammadov who broke the deadlock for the hosts. But it looked as though the tie might be in the balance until 24-year-old striker Mishura doubled Neftchi's advantage in the last minute.
