A dominant performance from Dutch side FC Twente gave them a two-nil first-leg victory over Czech opposition Mlada Boleslav in the third round of qualifying for the UEFA Europa League.
FC Twente got their Europa League qualification campaign underway against Mlada Boleslav of the Czech Republic on Thursday.
Nacer Chadli made a promising start for the Dutch hosts but he was denied by Jan Seda.
Glynor Plet was next to be stopped by the 26-year-old Boleslav keeper.
Chadli came even closer to opening the scoring before half-time.
Twente did break the deadlock after the break, Leroy Fer converting Dusan Tadic's free-kick.
Tadic was on form and he helped create the second goal - the Serbian's cross found Dmitry Bulkin who failed to convert but Chadli was on hand to make it 2-0 to Steve McLaren's side.
Seda was on hand once again to prevent another Twente goal but the Dutch side will carry a comfortable advantage into the second leg in Mlada Boleslav on Thursday.
