Lausanne are through to the second leg of football's Intertoto cup after beating the Andorran team, Sant Julia, 6-0, at home.

In an expected victory, the Swiss team thrashed their amateur opponents, scoring two goals in the first half and four in the second.

The home victory adds to the 3-1 away win in Andorra last week.

Sant Julia’s only real chance of scoring came six minutes before the end of Saturday’s game, when they were given their first corner of the match. But the Lausanne keeper, Simon Zetzmann, made short work of their strike and deflected the ball from the goal.

Lausanne will now go on to face Sturm Graz in the second leg, a tie which could see a brief return to Switzerland by former Swiss league star Charles Amoah. As league top scorer, the Ghanaian forward played a key role in St Gallen’s championship winning season in 2000 before leaving for Sturm Graz during last season’s winter break.

The Intertoto Cup is a preliminary competition from which three teams emerge to take places in the more prestigious UEFA cup.
