Monaco's class told on a trip to Holland as they put Willem II to the sword 3-1.Rapid Bucuresti will be delighted with their night's exertions as they dumped Dutch giants Feyenoord out of the Uefa Cup.
With the tie evenly poised at 1-1 from the first leg, Rapid were positive from kick-off and took the lead through Mugurel Buga in only the 12th minute.
Feyenoord's attempts to get back in to the contest proved in vain as a staunch Rapid backline kept a shut-out and secured progression for the home side.
Monaco's class told on a trip to Holland as they put Willem II to the sword 3-1 on the night and 5-1 on aggregate.
The Principality were always in control of the tie but had to wait until the second period before breaking the deadlock, as Sisenado Maicon scored on 48 minutes before Emmanuel Adebayor doubled their advantage.
Anour Hadouir netted a consolation for the home side but Monaco substitute Ernesto Chevanton had the final word when he netted with a minute remaining.
French outfit Strasbourg were far too strong for Grazer on home soil as they cruised to a 5-0 success on the night, progressing 7-0 on aggregate.
Karim Hagui gave the home side the lead on six minutes, before Alexander Farnerud put the game beyond Grazer when he netted five minutes before the break.
The second half proved no better for Grazer as first Farnerud added to his personal tally and then Ulrich Le Pen and Rabo Hosni completed the rout.
Israeli outfit Maccabi Petach Tikva are through to the group stage after they beat Serbia and Montenegro champions Partizan Belgrade 5-2, to progress with a 5-4 aggregate win.
Omer Golan proved the hero as he grabbed a hat-trick while Asi Masich converted a penalty and Partizan full back Marko Lomic netted an own goal to see Petch Tikva through.
Partizan had looked to be in a strong position after a Srdjan Radonjic brace in the first period had given them an overall advantage but Golan's fine individual display proved decisive.
Italian outfit Sampdoria did just enough against Vitoria Setubal as then won 1-0 on home soil, progressing 2-1 over the two games.
Andreas Gasbarroni proved to be Sampdoria's hero as his strike in the 8th minute secured progression.
Marek Saganowski proved to be Guimaraes' match winner against Wisla Krakow in a 1-0 victory, which secured a 4-0 win overall.
Osasuna crashed out of the competition as they played out a 0-0 stalemate with Rennes, who were 3-1 up from the first leg.
Steaua Bucharest again had too much fire-power for Valerenga as they cruised to a 3-1 success on the night and a 6-1 win over the two games.
Goals from Nicolae Dica, Gabriel Bostina and Victoras Iacob doing the damage, whilst Valerenga's scant consolation came from a Bernt Hulsker strike.
Sporting Lisbon were beaten on away goals in extra-time as Halmstad won 3-2 on the night in Portugal - having been beaten 2-1 in the first leg.
Gunnar Thorvaldsson's strike on 15 minutes gave the Swede's hope but this looked to have been tempered by Wenderson Wender's leveller on 34 minutes.
However, in the final minute, Dusan Djuric's strike for Halmstad took the game into extra-time - where an own goal from Tomas Zvirgzdauskas looked to have settled the tie in Sporting's favour.
The game was to have one more final twist, as in the 115th minute Patrik Ingelsten netted the tie's winner for Halmstad.
