Persistence paid off for Albanian title holders KS Skënderbeu as they overcame the resistance of Neftçi PFK with a goal deep into extra time by Nigerian midfielder Nurudeen Orelesi.

Including the first-leg stalemate in Baku, the two teams had played 205 goalless minutes until Orelesi met substitute Mario Morina's left-wing delivery with a superb shot that beat goalkeeper Saša Stamenković with 116 minutes on the clock. The strike put Skënderbeu into the UEFA Champions League third qualifying round for the first time, where their opponents will be Kazakhstan's FC Shakhter Karagandy.
