Astana won 3-0 against an uninspired Olimpi team


Astana became the first Kazakh team to reach the second qualifying round after overcoming ten-man Olimpi with a fine second-leg performance. Most of the damage had been done even before visiting forward Rezo Djikia was sent off early in the second half as goals by captain Aleksandr Kuchma (14) and Arsen Tlekhugov (52) brought the hosts ever closer to an encounter with Rosenborg BK, a date which was sealed when Murat Suyumagambetov headed in Eduard Sergienko's centre late in the match. After this embarassing defeat critics on Olimpi`s management will get louder, especially because of the seemingly senseless dissmissal of head coach Rezo Zozuashvili and bringing in unexperienced Varlam Kilasonia instead, as well as selling most of the team`s leading players.
