Rudar Pljevlja, Jeunesse Esch and Differdange all secured their place in the second qualifying round of the UEFA Europa League on Tuesday.

Pljevlja drew against Armenian side Mika 1-1 on the night with Nenad Stojanovic’s 85th-minute goal cancelling out Rafayel Ghazaryan’s earlier effort.

It means that the Montenegrin outfit go through to the next round on aggregate, having won the first leg 1-0, where they will now face Polish side Slask.

Jeunesse Esch’s 2-0 first-leg lead proved crucial as they were beaten 2-1 by TPS Turku of Finland on Tuesday.

An Alexandre Vitali own goal put Turku ahead before Wayne Brown failed to extend the advantage when he missed from the penalty spot.

Chinese midfielder Wang Chu equalised with 10 minutes left. However, Roope Riski’s 87th-minute goal set up a nervous finish, ensuring that the Finnish outfit claimed the second leg but still fell short, with Luxembourg National Division side Jeunesse Esch living to fight another day and edging through 3-2 on aggregate.

They will now play either AUK Broughton FC or FK Ventspils in the next round.

Differdange were rarely in trouble in their clash against KF Laci, despite Valdan Nimani putting the visitors ahead after 38 minutes.

Omar Er Rafik’s 20-minute double meant that Differdange won 2-1 on the night, to progress 3-1 on aggregate.

They will now face Utrecht in the second qualifying round.
