Juan Cuadrado laid on goals for Ryder Matos and Borja Valero late on as ACF Fiorentina confirmed their place in the UEFA Europa League round of 32 and brought an end to CS Pandurii Târgu Jiu's hopes of getting through Group E.

Matos had the simple task of directing the ball into the net on 85 minutes after Cuadrado's ball from the right took a telling nudge into his path, with Borja Valero's trundling strike in added time adding insult to injury. It was a cruel double blow for European debutants Pandurii, after Eric Pereira's extraordinary 32nd-minute opener had given them some hope of having something to play for on matchday five.
