Linfield squeeze past B36 on penalties

B36 Tórshavn 0-0 Linfield FC (agg: 0-0, Linfield win 4-3 on penalties)
Already up in the shoot-out, Linfield advanced to the next round when Ross Glendinning saved Lukasz Cieslewicz's spot kick.

Linfield FC required a penalty shoot-out to overcome B36 Tórshavn and claim their place in the UEFA Champions League second qualifying round.

Peter Thompson's saved penalty was one of a number of opportunities David Jeffrey's team passed up in the first leg, leaving this tie hanging in the balance. B36 goalkeeper Meinhardt Joensen almost cost Linfield dear once again with two excellent saves from Mark McAllister in regular and extra time, but on this occasion spot kicks proved Linfield's saving grace.

Klemint Matras hit the woodwork with B36's opening effort, and after four Linfield players had made their penalties count, Lukasz Cieslewicz saw his strike saved by Ross Glendinning.

The Northern Irish side face Cyprus' AEL Limassol FC in the next stage of the competition, with AEL hosting the first leg on 18 July.
