Wisła Kraków brilliantly overturned a UEFA Champions League second qualifying round first-leg deficit against Beitar Jerusalem FC and their reward is a tie against FC Barcelona.
The Israeli side led 2-1 ahead of their trip to Poland but by half-time in the decider had conceded to Mauro Cantoro, Cléber and Paweł Brożek. Beitar could have won through with two second-half goals but instead Junior Díaz and Andrzej Niedzielan increased Wisła's advantage and next week they will play at Camp Nou.
It took just nine minutes for Wisła to strike and lead the tie on away goals thanks to Cantoro's free-kick. Cléber put Wisła ahead on aggregate in the 25th-minute and before the break Brożek gave them a commanding advantage following a clever pass from Rafał Boguski. Any hope of a Beitar comeback was effectively ended in the 57th minute by substitute Díaz, who finished following a remarkable overhead assist from Wojciech Łobodziński, and fellow substitute Niedzielan made it 5-0 on the night late on. Wisła will now aim to reverse the result of their 2001/02 third qualifying round tie against Barcelona when they lost 4-3 at home – having led three times – and 1-0 away.
