Lerin Duarte opened the scoring in the 38th minute after a cross from Robin Propper saw the midfielder fire home from the edge of the box.
The victory was wrapped up with six minutes of normal time to play in the second half as Samuel Armenteros fired home from close range after latching onto the end of a Jaroslav Navratil cross.
