Defender Moti was forced to take the gloves when regular keeper Vladislav Stoyanov was sent off two minutes from the end of extra-time in their qualifier against Steaua Bucharest.

And after scoring Ludogorets' first penalty in the shoot-out, he then saved from Paul Pirvulescu and Cornel Rapa to send his side through to a first group stage appearance.

Wanderson had earlier taken the game to extra-time, levelling the tie at 1-1 with the only goal of the night, a 90th-minute volley.

Elsewhere, Napoli's chances of a second successive trip to the group stage were ended by Athletic Bilbao, who won 3-1 for a 4-2 aggregate victory.

Marek Hamsik gave the visitors the lead in Bilbao, but two Aritz Aduriz goals and a third from Ibai Gomez - all in the space of 14 second-half minutes - saw Athletic qualify.

Bayer Leverkusen and Malmo also made it through to Thursday's draw with comfortable second-leg home wins.

Germany's Leverkusen beat FC Copenhagen 4-0 to win 7-2 on aggregate, while Malmo of Sweden won 3-0 on the night to eliminate Salzburg 4-2 on aggregate.

Does it make your writers feel like men? F365 might suggest that I 'lighten up', but it is genuinely traumatic for people who have been oppressed all their lives to be the butt of jokes, and to be told...

ou can't blame De Gea for wanting to leave, he has enough to do in front of goal as it is as well as taking on the role of Man Utd's version of Derek Acorah in trying to contact and organise a defence that isn't there.
