Luxol St Andrews were beaten by Hungarian side Haladas in their opening match from the Main Round of the UEFA Futsal Champions League.

The Hungarian side were off to a very strong start, building a three-goal lead in the opening minutes courtesy fo goals from Zoltan Droth, Henrique Diniz de Souza and Luiggi Longo Duarte Baptista penalty.

Here, Luxol coach Gabriel Dobre called for a time-out which turned out to work well for the Maltese side who managed to pull two goals back through Brazilian Everton Veve and Maicon da Silva.

But Haladas kept their poise and continued to press their opponents so that just before the half-time whistle they added a fourth goal through Diniz de Souza.

In the second half, the match maintained the same script with the Hungarians keeping up the pressure on the Luxol players. And it was no surprise that the visitors added two more goals through Droth and Duarte Baptista to wrap up their victory.

Luxol will play their second match from the group on Thursday evening when they take on Swedish side Hammarby.

The Swedes come into the match on the back of a 7-2 defeat in their opening match against Rekord Bielsko Biala.
