Arnbjorn Hansen gave the hosts the lead with three minutes gone before namesake Levi doubled the advantage with 38 minutes on the clock.

A Manuel Machado red card on 55 minutes seemed to put the contest beyond his side.

Luis Dos Reis did, however, cut the arrears with 66 minutes gone but Gunnar Zachariasen restored the two-goal advantage six minutes later.

Levi Hanssen grabbed his second in the 85th minute with an effort from distance before Leif Niclasen put further gloss on an already polished performance in the 90th.

Tre Penne overcame Armenian champions FC Shirak 1-0 courtesy of a Didier Kadio own goal but a 3-0 victory in the first leg was enough to secure progression for Vardan Bichakhchyan’s men.
