Partizan power to record victory

FK Partizan 8-0 Rhyl FC (agg: 12-0)
The Serbian champions racked up the biggest victory in their European history with new signing Cléo claiming a hat-trick.

FK Partizan racked up the biggest victory in their European history with an eight-goal show against Rhyl FC in front of 10,000 spectators in Belgrade, setting up a third qualifying round tie against APOEL FC.

Cléo hat-trick
Cléo led the way for the Serbian champions with a hat-trick while there were goals in either half for Brana Ilić. Lamine Diarra had opened the scoring with Nenad Djordjević making it 3-0 and the seventh came from Radosav Petrović. The spree ensured they eclipsed their record 7-1 success against FC Santa Coloma in the UEFA Cup qualifying round in 2001/02.

Diarra opener
The Welsh side displayed great respect and sportsmanship in both games of the tie but were simply outclassed again following a 4-0 reverse a week ago. Cléo's header provided the first for Diarra before the Brazilian himself registered with a sensational finish from Nemanja Tomić's pass.

Set-piece strikes
Djordjević's free-kick after 19 minutes increased the lead and Ilić's solo effort made it four before half-time. Diarra repaid the compliment for Cléo after the interval before a special strike from Ilić made it 6-0. Petrović continued the onslaught by heading in a corner before Cléo completed his treble from the penalty spot with 18 minutes remaining.
