Later, Scottish side Rangers defeated Teddy Teuma’s Union Saint-Gilloise 3-0 as the Belgian outfit drop in the UEFA Europa League.

PSV Eindhoven defeated Monaco 3-2 after extra-time while Dynamo Kiyv also needed the extra 30 minutes to dispatch of Sturm Graz.

The first leg of the play-offs take place on August 16 with the return fixtures eighth days later.
