FC Schalke 04 are through to the UEFA Champions League group stage for the sixth time after surviving a major scare against PAOK FC.

PAOK, under the charge of former Schalke coach Huub Stevens, were hopeful of reaching the competition proper for the first time following last week's 1-1 first-leg draw in Germany. Though they went behind to Ádám Szalai's opener, Stefanos Athanasiadis's equaliser and the dismissal of Jermaine Jones looked to have put them in the ascendancy. However, Julian Draxler and Szalai struck either side of Kostas Katsouranis to earn Schalke a 4-3 aggregate triumph.

  • End Time
    The final whistle is blown.
    PAOK 2-3 Schalke (agg 3-4) What a second half! Schalke reach the group stage for the seventh time - but only after a terrific tussle with Greek club PAOK, who simply refused to lie down despite going behind twice tonight.
  • Goal
    90
