Svetoslav Todorov was on the scoresheet again for PFC Litex Lovech who secured their place in the UEFA Champions League third qualifying round with a comfortable home victory against Montenegro's FK Mogren.

The hosts were ahead on three minutes courtesy of Petar Zanev's strike before Todorov, scorer of both Litex goals in the first leg, added a second from the penalty spot shortly after the break. Hristo Yanev's clinical finish ten minutes from time completed a comfortable victory for the Bulgarian champions.

Eager to make amends for letting a one-goal lead slip in the final 15 minutes of the first leg, Vladimir Gluščević missed a glorious opportunity to give Mogren the lead inside two minutes. The 31-year-old raced clear of the home defence but failed to find the target when one-on-one with Vinícius.

The hosts made them pay for that miss within a minute, forging ahead through Zanev who latched onto Wellington's free-kick to give Luboslav Penev's side the lead. Litex came close to doubling the advantage on ten minutes but Momchil Tsvetanov and Yanev failed to capitalise on a mistake in the Mogren defence.

Todorov made it two from the penalty spot four minutes into the second half after Janko Simović felled Wellington. With ten minutes remaining Yanev rounded off a comfortable victory for the hosts, the 32-year-old collecting Thiago Miracema's pass before finishing clinically from the edge of the penalty area.

Litex will face Polish champions Wisła Kraków in the third qualifying round with the first leg taking place in Bulgaria on 26/27 July ahead of the return in Krakow on 2/3 August.
