Wisla take control

NK Primorje 0-2 Wisla Kraków Wisla have a foot in the next round after winning away.

NK Primorje 0-2 Wisla Kraków
Polish side Wisla Krakow look to be on their way to the second round of the UEFA Cup after comfortably beating NK Primorje away from home.

Too strong
Wisla were too strong for Primorje, who have been in poor form in the Slovenian league, having lost to NK Rudar at the weekend. Not even 19-year-old sensation Mitja Zatkovic, who struck four goals against FC Zvarnots in the qualifying round, could rally Primorje.

Opening goal
The Polish side dominated the match, as the hosts struggled to carve out any decent chances against a physically imposing and well-marshalled defence. The opening goal came after 12 minutes when Wisla launched a rapid counterattack and Kalu Uche shot past goalkeeper Janez Strajner.

Stajner save
Wisla nearly extended their lead in the 48th minute when Kamil Kosowski made a break down the left and played in Marcin Kuzba who hit a strong shot that Stajner did well to save.

Moskal more precise
In the 55th minute Kazimierz Moskal again advanced down the left and once again found Kuzba who was more precise this time and succeeded in doubling his side's advantage. From then on Wisla were happy to sit back and defend their lead. Primorje had their only goalscoring chance in the 60th minute when Luka Vidmar missed the goal with a high lob.
