Armenia’s FC Pyunik win on opening Champions League night

Armenia’s Pyunik recorded their first UEFA Champions League victory since July 2007, although their place in the second qualifying round is far from secure after José Hirsch’s 71st-minute reply for ten-man Folgore.

FC Pyunik scored either side of half-time to register a 2-1 victory over 10-man Folgore in the opening leg of their UEFA Champions League first qualifying round tie on Tuesday.

The Armenian side led through Vardges Satumyan and substitute Cesar Romero, but Hirsch’s header, seconds after team-mate Fabio Ceschi had been dismissed, has given the Sammarinese outfit hope of winning a UEFA tie for the first time.
