Groclin Grodzisk Wielkopolski marched into the first round of the UEFA Cup with a convincing 4-1 win against Lithuanian outfit FK Atlantas, giving the Polish side a 6-1 aggregate victory.
The Polish side went into the game with a two-goal lead from their home leg and, despite conceding four corners in the opening seven minutes, were virtually assured of their place in Friday's first-round draw when Grzegorz Rasiak tucked in an away goal on 31 minutes.
Croatian midfield player Ivica Krizanac made it 4-0 on aggregate with a tap-in three minutes later and there was no let-up for the Lithuanians after the break. Andzej Niedzielna scored twice in the second half, first on 47 minutes, then again on 64 minutes after following up Piotr Rocki's shot which hit the bar. Elnaras Tarvydas gave the home crowd something to cheer with a 90th-minute consolation - only the home side's second ever goal in three UEFA Cup campaigns.
Groclin coach Dusan Radolsky was satisfied with his side's performance. "Our main exercise was to score before our opponents," he said. "After that we did not have any problems - it was all over."
