FC Steaua Bucureşti kicked off their UEFA Champions League qualification attempt with a comfortable 3-0 home victory over FK Vardar in this second qualifying round first leg.

First-half goals from Cristian Tănase and Mihai Doru Pintilii, plus an Igor Pavlović own goal on the stroke of half-time, ensured that Steaua, the 1986 European champions, claimed a 100th win from their 265th match in the UEFA club competitions. Vardar have a mountain to climb in Skopje next Tuesday.
