Swedish champions Malmö FF advanced to the UEFA Champions League play-offs, two Markus Rosenberg goals spelling the end for AC Sparta Praha.
David Lafata's first-leg hat-trick was not enough for Sparta to progress as Malmö's captain struck either side of the interval. Malmö conceded four goals in Prague but held firm at home to eliminate the Czech champions on away goals, the visitors finishing with ten men.
Sparta's star man from the first leg had the first goalscoring opportunity, but Lafata shot over the bar after 23 minutes from inside the box. A minute later, Isaac Kiese Thelin came close to connecting with an Emil Forsberg pass in the Sparta box, but he had better luck as a provider, with his flick on 35 minutes setting up Rosenberg to elegantly chip over David Bičík.
