Alashkert 1-1 Dinamo Tbilisi (agg: 1-3)
A Dinamo derby against their Zagreb counterparts may await the Georgian champions after they held firm in Armenia. Jambul Jigauri put Dinamo in front on 21 minutes, finishing after Alashkert goalkeeper Gevorg Kasparov spilled Vladimer Dvalishvili's drive, with the home side unable to build on Norayr Gyozalyan's equaliser.

Liepāja 0-2 Salzburg (agg: 0-3)
Partizani or Ferencváros are next for the Austrian side, who made comfortable progress in Latvia, with Valon Berisha's finish on 35 minutes extending their aggregate lead. Bernardo then followed up his maiden strike for Salzburg, in Friday's Austrian Cup meeting with Vorwärts Steyr, with a first UEFA goal to wrap things up.

Sheriff 0-0 Hapoel Beer-Sheva (agg: 2-3)
The home side had four shots on target in Tiraspol, and David Goresh saved all four of them – denying Josip Brezovec, Zoran Kvržić, Vujadin Savić and Mateo Sušić – as the Israeli side did enough to earn a third qualifying round meeting with Olympiacos.

APOEL 3-0 TNS (agg: 3-0)
Jamie Mullan and Adrian Cieślewicz had chances for the Welsh side, but hopes of a shock were dashed after the break, Nektarios Alexandrou and Pieros Sotiriou giving APOEL a 2-0 lead before Tomás De Vincenti added some gloss with a late penalty. Rosenborg or Norrköping will be Thomas Christiansen's side's next opponents.

Seinäjoki 2-2 BATE (agg: 2-4)
The Finnish champions overturned a 2-0 deficit on the night but never came close to earning a meeting with Dundalk or Iceland's FH in the next round. Aleksandr Karnitski and Aleksei Rios struck inside the first 30 minutes for the visitors, but Ariel Ngueukam replied before the break and Roope Riski levelled things up on 61 minutes.

København 6-0 Crusaders (agg: 9-0)
The Northern Irish side were applauded off the field by home fans in Copenhagen, but their only goal was at the wrong end, Andrew Mitchell beating his own goalkeeper. Andrija Pavlović, Andreas Cornelius (2), Rasmus Falk and Ján Greguš were the FCK scorers as they fixed a rendezvous with Romania's Astra Giurgiu.

Crvena zvezda 2-1 Valletta (agg: 4-2)
'Red Star' had an early fright as Jonathan Caruana scored with a header from a corner, but Mitchell Donald crashed in an equaliser off the crossbar before Guélor Kanga laid on the winner for captain Aleksandar Katai. Crvena zvezda take on Bulgarian titlewinners Ludogorets Razgrad next.

Mladost Podgorica 0-3 Ludogorets (agg: 0-5)
Cosmin Moţi missed a Ludogorets penalty, but Jody Lukoki was the centre of attention thereafter in Montenegro with two fine finishes from the edge of the box either side of a smart strike from Wanderson. Crvena zvezda represent the next test for the Bulgarian champions.

Legia 2-0 Zrinjski (agg: 3-1)
Nemanja Nikolić was the star of the show as Legia avoided any fuss at home against the Bosnian champions. The Hungarian international put his side in front from the penalty spot and struck again after the break to leave the Polish champions needing to beat Olimpija Ljubljana or Trenčín to make it to the play-offs.
