NK Maribor   3 - 0   Hibernian

Josip Ilicic (second right) was the scourge of Hibs with a double for Maribor

Hibernian face a daunting task to keep their Europa League hopes alive after a thumping defeat by Maribor.

Josip Ilicic was tormentor in chief with a double for the hosts, who dominated for long spells of the third round qualifier first leg.

Hibs boss John Hughes opted to play Colin Nish as the lone frontman and the visitors rarely threatened.

Ilicic's brace either side of half-time saw Maribor turn the screw before Marcos Tavares added the third.

Derek Riordan and Anthony Stokes were left out of the Hibernian team as Nish ploughed a lone furrow against the Slovenians

The five-man midfield of Edwin de Graf, Kevin McBride, Liam Miller, John Rankin and David Wotherspoon struggled to establish any rhythm against slick Maribor.

Graham Stack was chosen ahead of Graeme Smith and the Hibs keeper was kept busy during a difficult 90 minutes for the Edinburgh side.

Stack blocked brilliantly to deny Dalibor Volas in the 17th minute as Maribor looked to press home their early territorial advantage.

Tavares thundered a 30-yard strike just wide before Stack tipped away another close-range effort from Volas.

Maribor's pressure paid dividends after 32 minutes when Ilicic fired home via the underside of the bar from inside the penalty area.

Miller responded for the visitors, his effort pushed away by goalkeeper Marko Pridigar.

MY SPORT: DEBATE

Hibs searched for an equaliser but their hopes of taking something from the first leg suffered another blow as Maribor doubled their lead.

Wotherspoon lost possession to Armin Bacinovic and the predatory Ilicic lobbed Stack from about 20 yards to grab his and Maribor's second of the night.

Stack prevented Maribor scoring a third when he palmed away another Tavares effort but the skipper was not to be denied and he extended their lead with a fine strike on the hour mark.

After slipping 3-0 behind, Hughes brought on Riordan for Nish and Stokes for McBride, but Hibs could not reduce the deficit and face a difficult return leg at Easter Road next week.
