Steffen Nystrom: Vies with Ayodele Adeleye for possession

Anzhi Makhachkala claimed their first win in this season's Europa League as they beat Tromso 1-0 at Saturn Stadium.

The Russian side were in need of victory after claiming just one point from their opening two games and they secured it thanks to a first-half goal from Nikita Burmistrov.

Morten Moldskred enjoyed Tromso's best chances in the second half but they never really threatened and sit bottom of Group K with one point.

Anzhi had the better of the opening stages but could not press home their territorial advantage, with a Pavel Solomatin effort which was dragged wide and a couple of corners all they had to show for their dominance.

Steffen Nystrom had Tromso's first shot in the 17th minute but two minutes later the home side had the lead.

Odil Ahmedov opened up the visiting defence with a throughball and Burmistrov was on hand to latch onto the pass and finish calmly beyond Benny Lekstrom.

Solomatin was looking lively and came close to doubling the lead as he got a head to Burmistrov's cross but missed the target from 12 yards out.

Tromso were barely in the game at that point but went within inches of evening things up in the 26th minute as Thomas Bendiksen's shot from the edge of the box came back off the post.

Just three minutes later the frame of the goal came to the visitors' rescue when Benoit Angbwa caught Alan Gatagov's corner beautifully but saw his shot hit the bar.

Angbwa shot wide from 20 yards just after the break before Anzhi goalkeeper Mihail Kerzhakov was called into action for the first time, making an impressive point-blank stop from Moldskred.

It was Anzhi who looked the more likely to score as Ahmedov and Abdul Razak both saw shots miss the target and Adnan Causevic had to make a smart block to stop Kamil Agalarov doubling the lead.

Kerzhakov was called on to make another save from Moldskred as the clock ticked down but the Russians held on for a comfortable win.
