BOURGAS, Bulgaria, Aug 12 (Reuters) - Russian champions

Spartak Moscow all but guaranteed their place in the Champions'

League with a 5-0 first leg demolition of Bulgarians Liteks

Lovech in their European Cup second qualifying round tie on


After a goalless first half striker Nikolai Pisarev

opened Spartak's account 10 minutes after the break with a

powerfully struck shot and he added a second -- and his side's

fourth -- four minutes from time.

Striker Egor Titov made it 2-0 after 65 minutes when he

waltzed through three Litex defenders before firing through the

legs of goalkeeper Stoyan Stavrev.

Spartak went 3-0 up through Brazilian Leonardo Samarone, and

after Pisarev had made it 4-0, Spartak captain Ilya Tsimbalar

made it 5-0 in the last minute.

Liteks have virtualy no chance of salvaging the tie in

Moscow but at least they should be back to full strength after

having three defenders suspended for this game.
