Barel breaks through for Gomel

FC Gomel 1-0 HJK Helsinki
Viktar Barel's goal gives Gomel a narrow lead.

FC Gomel 1-0 HJK Helsinki
A solitary Viktar Barel goal on the hour was enough to give FC Gomel a slight advantage in their UEFA Cup qualifying round tie with Finnish visitors HJK Helsinki.

False alarm
Gomel thought they had taken the lead 26 minutes into a quiet first half of this first-leg tie, but Henadzi Blizniuk's smart header was met with a superb stop by Andras Vilnrotter. The breakthrough finally came 15 minutes after half-time when Andrei Marozau's shot hit a defender and fell to Blizniuk. His effort was stopped on the line by Tero Penttilä, but Barel was on hand to score from close range.

Woodwork woe
HJK's best chance to equalise came ten minutes from full time when Hannu Haarala made a fine solo run through the Gomel defence and unleashed a drive from 15 metres. Viatcheslav Dousmanov was beaten, but the post saved the Belarussians.

'Special scheme'
Gomel coach Serguei Podpalyi said: "We prepared a special 4-3-3 tactical scheme to play the Finns, and it worked. I am only disappointed about the fact that we wasted so many chances. Also, you can be sure that we will not be playing defensive football away from home."

Armstrong upbeat
Despite defeat, HJK coach Keith Armstrong was upbeat. He said: "We wasted three or four chances in the game as well. Anyway, we are not despairing, as there are still 90 minutes left in this match."
