Intertoto Cup - third round, first leg

Racing Santander 0 - Slovan Liberec 1

Racing Santander have to win their second leg match next week after losing to Slovan Liberec in the Sardinero stadium. The Cantabrians dominated for much of the game, but without any first team squad forwards they were unable to get the goals they needed. The Czech side scored just before half time with virtually their first shot at goal, Pospisil connecting with Valachovic's pass to score. Youngsters Jonathan and Raúl both went close later on, but keeper Kinsky kept them out to take a valuable lead back home. (19.07.03)

Villarreal 2 - Brescia 0

A great result for Villarreal, who beat Brescia 2-0 to put one foot in the next round of the competition. Having rested many of his first team players for the last couple of games of the season, Benito Floro was able to put out a strong side which included new signing Sonny Anderson, and the Brazilian striker had a part in the first goal scored by Calleja on the quarter hour mark. Keeper López Vallejo had to save from Tare to maintain the lead, but ten minutes from the end Víctor added a second goal to give his side a two goal cushion for next week's return game in Italy.
