UEFA Champions League Tuesday knockout qualifying round Review

ASTANA 4 vs 3 CELTIC
A lackluster performance from Celtic in second-half against an Astana team who were trailing 5-0 from the first leg made Astana  4-1 up with 20 minutes remaining and in search of two more goals to create a wonder but two late goals from Celtic killed that expectation as the Scottish side eased to an 8-4 aggregate victory.

NICE 0 vs 2 NAPOLI
Italian club, Napoli booked a return to the Champions League group stages with goals from Jose Callejon and Lorenzo Insigne in the second half, after the first half ended goaless secured a 2-0 victory away at Nice and making it a 4-0 aggregate scoreline.
Neither Barca linked Seri or ballotelli could rescue them.

SEVILLA 2 vs 2 BASAKSEHIR

It was a scary encouter at the Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan stadium as Sevilla survived what would have been a shocker against Istanbul Basaksehir.
The team from Turkey lost the first home leg 2-1.
A result which they tried to turnaround and the Turkish side got the lead through former dutch sensation  Eljero Elia but Sergio Escudero and Wissam Ben Yedder restored parity for Sevilla. The Turkish side kept fighting and got the second goal in the 83rd minute through Edin Visca but couldn't find that crucial third away goal.
Sevilla progressed 4-3 on aggregate.

RIJEKA 0 vs 1 OLYMPIACOS
Olympiacos secured a 3-1 aggregate win over Rijeka with Marko Marin scoring the only goal in Croatia.

MARIBOR 1 vs 0 HAPOEL BE'ERSHEVA
Maribor defeat Hapoel Be'er Sheva 1-0 and qualify on away goals following a 2-1 loss in Israel last week.
Mitja Viler's strike proved enough for them.
