FC Shakhter Karagandy maintained their excellent form in UEFA Champions League qualifying with a 3-0 win in their third qualifying round opener against Albania's KS Skënderbeu.
After defeating FC BATE Borisov in both legs of their second qualifying round tie, Viktor Kumykov's men extended their winning streak to leave themselves within touching distance of a play-off spot. Aldin Džidić, Roman Murtazayev and Sergei Khizhnichenko were all on target at the Astana Arena with the Kazakhstani champions in a good position to finish things off next Tuesday.
