Rampant Slovan shoot down Zrinjski

ŠK Slovan Bratislava 4-0 NK Zrinjski (agg: 4-1)
Two early goals helped the Slovakian champions overturn a one-goal first-leg deficit and set up a tie with Olympiacos CFP.

ŠK Slovan Bratislava overturned a one-goal deficit with an emphatic 4-0 victory over NK Zrinjski to set up a tie against Greek champions Olympiacos CFP in the UEFA Champions League third qualifying round.

Quick start
Two early goals gave the home fans at the Tehelné Pole Stadium just the early fillip they needed after Slovan's 1-0 loss in Mostar last week. Juraj Halenár opened the scoring and struck again on the hour mark while Gaucho and Jakub Sylvestr also found the target as the visitors struggled to cope with the pressure applied by Dušan Uhrin's team.

Impressive display
The opening two goals both came from the left flank with home captain Samuel Slovák supplying crosses which were headed in by Halenár in the 13th minute and then Gaucho just six minutes later. Zrinjski responded well and although they made a couple of chances, Slovan goalkeeper David Bičík stood firm. After the break Halenár scored his second to knock the stuffing out of the Bosnian champions and, in added time, substitute Sylvestr finished the job with a clinical strike. "I am very happy with the result and the way we played this game," Sylvestr said. "If I scored but we didn't qualify, it's worth nothing."
