Martin Hinteregger proved the hero for FC Salzburg after his first-half double helped the Austrian champions overturn a first-leg deficit and edge past Qarabağ FK into the UEFA Champions League play-offs.
With his side 2-1 down after a 2-1 defeat in Azerbaijan last week, 21-year-old defender Hinteregger squared up the tie with a powerful header 18 minutes in and got what proved to be the crucial goal 16 minutes later as he turned in a rebound at close range. The hosts pushed to extend the advantage but no more goals came and, after a nervy finish, eventually celebrated their place in Friday's draw.
