Hibernian thrashed Latvia's Dinaburg 5-0 in the Intertoto Cup second round, first leg.
Hibernian took big steps towards the Intertoto Cup third round after a 5-0 drubbing of Latvia's Dinaburg at Easter Road.
Sunday's second round, first leg tie was never in doubt for the Scottish Premier League club, as they look to reach the second qualifying round of the Uefa Cup through the summer European competition.
Tony Mowbray's side took the lead seven minutes before the break when New Zealand international Chris Killen followed up his own rebound after his initial header to Michael Stewart's cross was saved by Dinaburg goalkeeper Vadims Fjodorovs.
Scott Brown doubled Hibs' lead four minutes after half time when he rounded Fjodorovs to score after beating Dinaburg's offside trap to latch on to Kevin Thomson's pass.
Northern Ireland international Ivan Sproule made it three on 72 minutes before he turned provider for David Murphy to make it four three minutes later.
Steven Fletcher completed the rout over their Baltic opponents with a fine free kick strike, as the Edinburgh club look almost assured of reaching the third round.
Irish club Shelbourne fared not so well in their second round, first leg tie, as the Eircom League Premier Division side lost 3-0 to Odense in Denmark.
A hat-trick from Norwegian midfielder Morten Fevang gave the Danish club the upper hand for the second leg at Dublin's Tolka Park next Sunday.
Jason Byrne missed a penalty on 52 minutes for the Dubliners, as they have it all to do against an Odense side currently managed by former Arsenal and Bolton Wanderers boss Bruce Rioch.
