Following their giant-killing feat in the first round of the UEFA Europa League when they knocked out Glasgow Rangers in a memorable night in the Grand Duchy, Luxembourg's Progrès Niederkorn were knocked out in the 2nd qualifying round on Thursday evening.

Playing against AEL from Larnaca in Cyprus, Progrès Niederkorn had gone into the away leg already 1-0 down from the home defeat in last week's first-leg match. With all yesterday's goals coming in the second half, AEL scored first through Fidelis on 70 mins, before Françoise gave the Luxembourg team a glimmer of hope with an equaliser on 83 minutes.

The home side, however, scored again five minutes later to seal the tie 2-1 on the night (3-1 on aggregate).
