Mobaeck gives Elfsborg the edge

Debreceni VSC 0-1 IF Elfsborg A breakaway strike by Daniel Mobaeck gave the Swedish champions the advantage against their Hungarian rivals.

A breakaway strike in the second half by Daniel Mobaeck gave Sweden's IF Elfsborg the edge over Debreceni VSC in a closely contested UEFA Champions League second qualifying round first leg in Hungary.

Effective system
Debrecen will feel disappointed at not having come away from this match with at least a goal for their efforts. Despite dominating possession for long periods it is Elfsborg, so effective on the counterattack, who take an away goal back to Sweden where they will welcome the Hungarian champions on Wednesday week.

Early efforts
The visitors started the match well and Fredrik Berglund twice spurned early chances to give them the lead, arriving late to an early cross before firing over the bar on 12 minutes. At the other end Dorge Kouemaha missed his kick after Tibor Dombi picked him out with a delightful cross from the right wing, and as half-time beckoned Cameroonian striker Kouemaha sent his next attempt over the bar from 12 metres following excellent approach work by Aco Stoikov.

Breakthrough
Elfsborg took the lead in the 64th minute when James Keene sent Mobaeck through on goal and the defender turned his marker before neatly beating János Balogh. Urged on by the febrile crowd at the Oláh Gábor utcai Stadium the hosts almost equalised when substitute striker Gergely Rudolf headed Leandro’s left-wing cross just over the bar with 12 minutes to go. Rudolf had time to make amends on the dying seconds but after controlling a pass from Leandro, shot over.
