Mikkel Beckmann: On target against his former club

After a 1-1 draw in Sweden, Nordsjaelland would have been favourites to progress but a single goal from their own former striker Mikkel Beckmann gave their opponents a 1-0 win - which was enough to take them through.

Another shock saw Bundesliga outfit Stuttgart go out to Croatian side Rijeka, after a 2-2 draw in Germany meant they go out 4-3 on aggregate. Rijeka went through after a last-minute goal from Goran Mujanovic.

Serbian champions Partizan Belgrade also went out despite taking a 1-0 advantage into their second-leg with FC Thun - they were hammered 3-0 in Switzerland.

Italians Udinese could not overhaul a 3-1 first leg deficit to Slovan Liberec, as they could only claim a 1-1 draw in the Czech Republic.

Fiorentina did manage to make it through, but only just on away goals after losing 1-0 at home to Grasshoppers.

St Etienne bowed out as they lost 5-3 on aggregate after losing 1-0 at home to Danish outfit Esbjerg with the only goal coming from Mustapha Bayal Sall - who put through his own net with 17-minutes left.

2006 and 2007 champions Sevilla strolled into the next round with a 9-1 aggregate win over Slask Wroclaw after a 5-0 second leg triumph in Poland.

Sevilla's city rivals Real Betis had an equally comfortable time, as they won 6-0 against Jablonec giving them an 8-1 aggregate win.

Dynamo Kiev eased into the group stages with a comfortable 5-1 win over Kazak outfit Aktobe in the Ukrainian capital.

Likewise Rubin Kazan made light work of their tie with Molde, claiming a 5-0 aggregate success after a 3-0 win in Russia.

There was a shock elsewhere in Russia, however, as Spartak Moscow bowed out at the hands of Swiss side St Gallen. After a 1-1 draw in Switzerland, a 4-2 win for the visitors including two goals from Goran Karanovic - gave the visitors the shock win.

Two time winners Feyenoord went out to Russian side Kuban Krasnodar after going down 2-1 in Rotterdam, going out 3-1 on aggregate.

Zulte-Waregem progressed after a 2-1 win in Cyprus over APOEL Nicosia, which gave them a 3-2 aggregate success - but there was success for one Cypriot side as Apollon went through as Nice could only win 1-0 in France, meaning they go out 2-1 overall.

Moldovan champions FC Sheriff progressed after a 2-1 win over Vojvodina, whilst Turkish giants Besiktas also booked their place in the next round as they won 2-0 in Istanbul against Tromso.

Eintracht Frankfurt, Dnipro, Maccabi Haifa, Rapid Vienna, Trabzonspor, Genk, Standard Liege, Salzburg and Estoril all eased into the group stages after comfortable aggregate wins.

AZ Alkmaar's clash at home to Atromitos was abandoned after a fire broke out at the AFAS Stadion.

The spectators were evacuated after the match was brought to a halt in the 57th minute, with the visitors leading 1-0 to trail 3-2 on aggregate.

Finally only two matches went to extra time, in Braga they went down to Romanian side Pandurii - who scored their winner with just three-minutes of time left through Alexandru Ciucur.

The other match saw Chornomorets win 7-6 against Skenderbeu - who had won 1-0 on the night in Albania.

sn'tthis strange. Last season we were worried that we were stuck with a Dinosaur in Moyes while Liverpool and Everton were disappearing into the distance with their young, spritely managerts, playing football from heaven. Progressive managers, they said. Managers who understand the modern game.........

ood list, some crackers in there. For me, I'd have had Steve McManaman for Liverpool away at Celtic in the UEFA cup in 1997. I was in the ground that night and everyone kept screaming at him to make a pass, but he just kept going and going and going...brilliant, and in the dying minutes too.
