Greek titans Olympiacos made it through to the play-off qualification round in the chase for a berth in this season's Champions League after they beat Basaksehir of Turkey 2-0 on Tuesday in the second leg of their third round qualifier in Piraeus.

Leading 1-0 from the first leg in Istanbul last week, Olympiacos struggled to assert their authority in a first half where they had their goalkeeper Jose Sa to thank for keeping Basaksehir at bay.

However, after Mathieu Valbuena's free kick was bundled in at the far post by defender Ruben Semedo the task became too much for the visitors and Valbuena added a late second from the penalty spot to seal victory.
