Champions League: Anderlecht and Rapid Wien in trouble

RSC Anderlecht and Rapid Wien both lost their first-leg matches in the second preliminary round of the Champions League, while Glasgow Rangers failed to score against Kaunas.

BATE stun Anderlecht

Anderlecht hosted BATE Borisov in Brussels and thought to be heading for a positive result after a goal from Gillet in the 66th minute.

But only a minute later, the Belarusian visitors were handed a penalty and Krivets scored from the spot. The event also meant the end of the match for Wasilewski, who went off with a red card.

Despite losing Stasevich (ex-pulsed) in the 75th minute themselves, BATE kept their focus and went on to score the winning goal through Nekhajchik with three minutes to play.

Rapid Wien stand no chance in Cyprus

Rapid Wien surely hoped for a better result at Anorthosis Famagusta on the island of Cyprus, but were left with little hope as the home side won 3-0.

Skopelitis opened the score after 35 minutes, and two goals from Salpingidis earned the Cypriots a comfortable win and make things extremely completed to the Austrian side next week.

Rangers forget to score

Glasgow Rangers have some work left to do as well in the second leg, having been held to a very disappointing scoreless draw by Lithuanian side FBK Kaunas at Ibrox.

The return legs of the fourteen ties in the second preliminary round will be played on August 5th and 6th.
