Lille and Dynamo Kiev recorded comfortable wins, but Valencia suffered a setback.
Lille and Dynamo Kiev will be confident of reaching the UEFA Champions League proper after convincing third qualifying round, first leg victories on home soil.
Valencia suffered a shock in Austria, however, as Quique Sanchez Flores's side suffered a 1-0 defeat at Salzburg.
With the game appearing to be drifting to a goalless draw, Karel Pitak struck a quarter of an hour from time for the hosts.
Ligue 1 outfit Lille defeated Rabotnicki Kometal 3-0, but did not make the breakthrough until the hour mark, when Nikola Stojanovski put through his own net.
Nicolas Fauvergue doubled his side's lead on 71 minutes and Michel Fernandes Bastos completed the scoring from the penalty spot with ten minutes remaining.
Kiev will also be confident of progressing, at the expense of Fenerbahce, after defeating the Turkish giants 3-1 in the Ukraine.
Diogo Rincon was the hosts' hero and he immediately set the tone with a goal inside the first sixty seconds.
Marco Aurelio equalised shortly after the interval for the Turks, but Rincon restored his side's lead in the 67th minute and Serkan Balci's 76th minute dismissal made it a case of damage limitation for the visitors.
Atanda Yussuf scored his side's third goal of the night seven minutes from time to give Kiev a two-goal cushion ahead of the second leg.
Milan claimed a slender 1-0 first leg lead over Crvena Zvezda, with Filippo Inzaghi on target in the 21st minute.
What could have been the tie of the round failed to deliver as Hamburg and Osasuna drew.
In a tight encounter at The AOL Arena, there was nothing to separates the sides, ahead of what is sure to be an intriguing return leg in Spain.
Ajax hit-man Klaas Jan Huntelaar scored twice as Henk ten Cate's side defeated FC Copenhagen 2-1.
Huntelaar struck first in the 37th minute. Copenhagen equalised through Brede Hangeland shortly after the interval.
But the Eredivisie side were not to be denied and Huntelaar claimed the winner seven minutes from time.
Chievo will have to overturn a two-goal deficit if they are to qualify for the tournament's group stage after the Serie A side slipped to a 2-0 defeat at Levski Sofia.
Valeri Domovchiyski struck in the eighth minute and Cedric Bardon put the seal on victory with a 93rd minute penalty.
Elsewhere, Ivica Olic scored twice in the second half and Vagner Love added a third goal seven minutes from time to hand CSKA a 3-0 win over SCP Ruzomberok.
Shakhtar Donetsk claimed a 1-0 win over Legia Warsaw through Elano Blumer's 39th minute penalty, to set-up what is sure to be a tense second leg in Poland.
Galatasaray will think they have done the hard work, after defeating Mlada Boleslav 5-2 in a goalfest in Istanbul.
Sasa Ilic set the ball rolling with a 10th minute penalty and goals from Arda Turan (45) and the effervescent Hakan Sukur (49) appeared to have put the game beyond the visitors.
Turan added his second in the 62nd minute to make it 4-0, before Boleslav rallied to register late strikes from Milos Brezinsky and Marek Kulic.
Sabri Sarioglu reasserted the Turks' dominance, however, with his side's fifth goal deep into stoppage time.
Petre Marin struck in the 78th minute to grab Steaua Bucharest a 2-2 draw at Standard Liege, while Spartak Moscow drew 0-0 at Slovan Liberec.
