PARIS (AFP) –
German club Stuttgart qualified for the group phase of the Europa League on Tuesday after a 1-1 draw at Dinamo Moscow gave them a 3-1 aggregate win in their play-off tie.
Vedad Ibisevic opened the scoring for the visitors in the 64th minute, with Dinamo — who are bottom of the Russian top flight after six matches — equalising through Russian international Aleksandr Kokorin with 13 minutes to play.
The rest of the play-off round second legs take place on Thursday, when Liverpool, Newcastle United, Inter Milan, Lazio, Marseille, Athletic Bilbao and Sporting Lisbon will be among the teams bidding to go through.
The draw for the group phase is due to take place in Monaco on Friday.
