Litex complete comfortable victory

FK Atlantas 1-3 PFC Litex Lovech (Agg: 1-8) Litex come from behind on the night.

FK Atlantas 1-3 PFC Litex Lovech (Litex win 8-1 on aggregate)
PFC Litex Lovech eased into tomorrow's UEFA Cup first round draw after claiming a comfortable aggregate victory against FK Atlantas.

Atlantas lead
The Lithuanian side went into their home leg of the third qualifying round tie already trailing 5-0 from their trip to Bulgaria two weeks ago, but they showed they had not given up when they took the lead on the day after 13 minutes through Tomas Tamosauskas.

Roussev equalises
Atlantas held on until eight minutes into the second half, when Desislav Roussev sprung the offside trap to get on the end of fellow striker Hristo Yovov's long pass and equalise for the visitors.

Win secured
Litex were ahead nine minutes later thanks to a Mouras Hidiouad penalty, and not long afterwards their away win was secure with a further goal from Yugoslavian midfield player Nebojsa Jelenkovic.
