FC Salzburg lost 1-0 to HB Tórshavn in the Faroe Islands but still ran out comfortable aggregate winners to secure a third qualifying round date with AC Omonia.

Salzburg coach Huub Stevens made four changes to the team which started last week's 5-0 first-leg victory. One of those brought in, goalkeeper Alexander Walke, was beaten by HB striker Símun Samuelsen in the 73rd minute, although the Austrian champions had kept plenty in reserve ahead of next week's trip to Cyprus.

Despite the tie effectively being over, HB seemed determined to enjoy the visit of their high-profile visitors. Walke was first called into action with 18 minutes played, saving well from Andrew Fløtum after the No10 had been freed by a defensive mistake.

Chances came and went for either side, HB going closest with just over 20 minutes to go as Walke reacted superbly to repel a header from Thordur Hreidarsson. The Faroese champions did not have to wait long to break the deadlock, though, as Levi Hanssen created a chance which Samuelsen fired into the corner.
