Beşiktaş advanced to the Europa League group stage playoffs after eliminating LASK Linz of Austria on away goals.

LASK Linz defeated Beşiktaş 2-1 in the UEFA Europa League 3rd Qualifying Round second leg match in Linz late Thursday but the Austrian side failed to sideline Beşiktaş as the Istanbul powerhouse managed a 1-0 shutout in first leg match.

Meanwhile, the other Turkish team, Medipol Başakşehir, was eliminated after suffering a defeat to English side Burnley 1-0 in extra time. 

In the first leg last week, Medipol Başakşehir drew against Burnley 0-0 in Istanbul.
