FC Shakhter Karagandy recovered from a remarkable early onslaught to secure a 5-3 aggregate success against KS Skënderbeu and book a first-ever appearance in the UEFA Champions League play-offs.

Already in uncharted territory as third qualifying round participants, the Kazakh champions' hopes of progress took a huge blow when their 3-0 first-leg advantage was cancelled out inside 29 minutes in Tirana thanks to Željko Tomić's strike and a pair of Blendi Shkembi penalties. However, Viktor Kumykov's men hit back through Sergei Khizhnichenko and Maksat Bayzhanov – with goals either side of half-time – to clinch a place in Friday's draw.
