KIEV, Aug 9 (SW) - Dynamo Kiev hold a first-leg advantage over Fenerbahçe after they notched a 3-1 victory over the Turkish side thanks in part to a Diogo Rincón brace in the Champions League third qualifying round.
The Brazilian needed less than a minute to get Dynamo off the mark in the Ukrainian capital as Fener goalkeeper Rüstü Reçber couldn't handle a shot by Serhiy Rebrov, and Rincón tucked away the rebound.
The score remained 1-0 until the 48th minute when the Turks got what could be a vital away goal through Marco Aurélio's header off of a set piece.
A free kick was also the method Dynamo used to take the lead in the 67th minute as Carlos Correa's curling effort was headed past Rüstü, and Fener were dealt a blow when Serkan Balci was sent off for a second yellow card in the 76th minute.
Dynamo made the advantage pay off seven minutes from time as Ayila Yussuf put in a third goal on a stunning volley ahead of the second leg in Istanbul.
Galatasaray - Mladá Boleslav 5-2
Galatasaray have one foot in the Champions League group stage after claiming a comfortable victory over Czech side Mladá Boleslav in Istanbul on Wednesday.
Sasa Ilic needed just seven minutes to give the home side the lead from the spot, and it was 2-0 just before the break when Arda Turan took advantage of poor Boleslav defense to slot home.
Hakan Sükür then hit the target just after the restart to make it 3-0 before Turan added a second goal just after the hour mark.
Things looked a bit shaky for the Turks late on when Milos Brezinsky and Marek Kulic pulled goals back for Boleslav, but Sabri Sarioglu scored at the death to give Galatasaray a more comfortable three-goal advantage.
Shakhtar Donetsk - Legia 1-0
There could be two Ukrainian teams in the group stage, although Shakhtar Donetsk still have work to do after a narrow victory at home over Polish champions Legia.
The home side dominated the first half and were rewarded for their efforts when Nigerian international Julius Aghahowa was brought down the area, allowing Elano Blumer to slot home the opener from the spot on 39 minutes.
Legia, who never really looked like scoring a goal, will still have a chance to move on when they host Shakhtar in Warsaw in two weeks' time.
Slovan Liberec - Spartak Moscow 0-0
The winner of this tie will be purely determined in the second leg after Slovan Liberec and Spartak Moscow remained goalless in the Czech Republic.
Spartak will be happy to be playing at home in the second leg, but Liberec will be pleased with not conceding a potentially deadly away goal.
CSKA Moscow - Ruzomberok 3-0
Two goals from Ivica Olic gave CSKA a big advantage in their quest to reach the group stage, all at the hands of Slovak champions Ruzomberok.
CSKA were the better side in the first half, but Ruzomberok held out at 0-0 until the half-time break. The second half, though, would finally see the Russian side break through.
Olic rose high to head home a crossing pass by Daniel Carvalho just shy of the hour mark to give the former UEFA Cup winners the lead, and the Croatian forward doubled the lead six minutes later when he tapped in a ball from Vágner Love.
Love added a third for the Muscovites in the 83rd minute to give them likely an insurmountable lead going into the second leg.
