Champions League: Aalborg and Dinamo win

BELGRADE, July 30 (Reuters) - Danish champions Aalborg and Croatia's Dinamo Zagreb won their Champions League second qualifying round first-leg matches on Tuesday while Rangers were held to a 0-0 home draw by Kaunas.

Aalborg enjoyed a 5-0 home rout of Bosnian side Modrica and Dinamo, looking for their first group stage appearance in eight years, strolled to a 3-0 win at Slovenia's Domzale.

Josip Vrdoljak fired Dinamo ahead early from 25 metres. Brazilian Jorge Sammir steered in a penalty and set up the third for striker Josip Tadic.

Last season's UEFA cup finalists Rangers face a tricky trip to Lithuania after missing a hatful of chances to break down stubborn Kaunas at Ibrox.

Luis Aragones, who guided Spain to the European championship last month, got off to a winning start with Fenerbahce as former Brazil left-back Roberto Carlos and Selcuk Sahin gave the Turkish side a 2-0 home win over Hungary's MTK Budapest.

Panathinaikos are also set to reach the third and final qualifying round after a 3-0 home defeat of Georgian rivals Dinamo Tbilisi.

A first-half goals by Austria midfielder Andreas Ivanschitz sent Panathinaikos on their way and Dimitris Salpingidis scored the other two to seal their victory.

Belarus champions BATE Borisov pulled off the biggest shock of the evening as they came from behind for a 2-1 win at 1983 UEFA Cup winners Anderlecht.

The Belgian side, who had defender Marcin Wasilewski sent off, took the lead through Guillaume Gillet but left themselves a mountain to climb in next week's return leg after a Sergey Krivets penalty and Pavel Nehaicik turned the match.

Cypriots Anorthosis Famagusta also delighted their fans with a 3-0 home drubbing of Rapid Vienna thanks to a goal by Giannis Skopelitis and two from Polish striker Lukasz Sosin.

Aviram Barochian scored twice as Beitar Jerusalem fought back from a goal down to beat Wisla Krakow 2-1 in front of their vociferous fans while IFK Gothenburg were held to a 1-1 home draw by Basel.
