Thursday Recap

Wolves already had one foot in the next round after a dominant first leg, but Nuno Espirito Santo's team finished the job at home.

Three goals in 10 second-half minutes was the story of the match after new signing Pedro Neto scored in the 54th minute on his debut. Morgan Gibbs-White found the back of the net four minutes later, and Ruben Vinagre added the third after 64 minutes.

Wolves highlighted their opening goalscorer after combining with fellow new arrival Patrick Cutrone:

A clinical strike by Diogo Jota made it 4-0, completing a comfortable pair of encounters to qualify.

Rangers join Wolves in the play-off round after the goals flew in at Ibrox Stadium.

Alfredo Morelos was the hitman in form on the night, breaking the deadlock after just 14 minutes. Liverpool loanee Sheyi Ojo made it two for Steven Gerrard's team, with Rangers in full control over the Danes. Morelos completed his brace after 49 minutes before Evander gained a consolation 18 minutes from time.

The Glasgow giants will now battle Legia Warsaw in an attempt to claim a place in the group phase.

Espanyol never appeared at threat of suffering a shock after completing victory over Luzern, setting up a tie with Zorya Luhansk.

Wu Lei's third-minute opener deflated the Swiss in the opening moments, and the Spaniards were home and dry after Víctor Campuzano's goal on 27 minutes. The Catalan forward added his second seven minutes before half-time, with the La Liga side cantering to an easy win.
