Sheriff lay down law in Turku

FC International Turku 0-1 FC Sheriff
Alexandru Suvorov's first-half penalty left the Moldovan titleholders looking favourites to secure a third qualifying round berth.

Moldovan titleholders FC Sheriff look favourites to secure a UEFA Champions League third qualifying round berth as Alexandru Suvorov's first-half penalty edged out FC International Turku in Finland.

Bantamoi foul
The 22-year-old struck the only goal of the game three minutes before half-time after team-mate Benjamin Balima had been brought down by home goalkeeper Patrick Bantamoi. Outplayed for much of the game, Inter will require a far more incisive performance in Tiraspol next Tuesday if they are to advance further in the competition.

Inter chances
The visitors gained the upper hand early in the game and held it all through the first half, forcing Job Dragtsma's men to depend on counterattacks. Neither side looked like making a breakthrough, though, until Suvorov's calm finish set Sheriff on the road to victory. Inter stepped up a gear after the restart and twice threatened to equalise, but while Guillano Grot shot narrowly over, Alberto Ramirez Torres could only rattle the crossbar.
