Nancy make winning start

AS Nancy-Lorraine 2-1 Wisła Kraków Pascal Berenguer scored rare goals early in either half as Nancy made a winning start to their Group E campaign.

Kim and Pascal Berenguer scored in either half as AS Nancy-Lorraine made a winning start to their Group E campaign with a 2-1 victory against ten-man Wisła Kraków, whose UEFA Cup hopes now hang in the balance after two losses.

Brozek equaliser
Brailian forward Kim broke the deadlock from close range on eleven minutes, converting Michaël Chrétien's low cross. Paweł Brożek restored parity just after the half-hour but the night belonged to Nancy as made it 2-1 nine minutes after the restart when he fired in his first goal in 18 months with a rasping shot following Chrétien's corner.

Varga dismissal
Wisła's evening went from bad to worse when Norbert Varga was dismissed midway through the second half and he will be suspended when the Polish side face FC Basel 1893 on 30 November, a match they might have to win. Nancy will have fewer concerns when they meet the Swiss a week earlier after completing a success that always looked likely after a bright opening. Landry Nguemo had already tested goalkeeper Emilian Dolha with a fizzing early effort when Kim made the breakthrough.

Diakhite chances
Monsef Zerka almost doubled the advantage soon after, while Dolha did well to deny Kim, but it was the visitors who struck next when Brożek latched on to Jakub Błaszczykowski's pass and fired into bottom corner from the edge of the box. Nancy were soon threatening again, however, with Dolha twice frustrating Pape Diakhate before Berenguer popped up again to make it 2-1. Varga's sending-off after receiving two yellow cards in as many minutes effectively ended Wisła's challenge and Berenguer almost made it 3-0 late on but fired just wide.
