PSV will play Osijek after the Croatian outfit came through 3-2 on aggregate against Luzern despite losing the second leg 2-1. Fenerbahce are set to face Sturm Graz while Gent of Belgium – who reached the last 16 of the tournament in 2016-17 – will take on Austrian team Rheindorf Altach.

    Progres would be below the Conference! - Barton stunned by Rangers defeat

    Joey Barton believes Rangers' Europa League conquerors Progres Niederkorn are not even good enough to play in the Conference in England. All the latest transfer rumours Rangers' Europa League campaign was brought to a humiliating halt in the first qualifying round with a 2-1 aggregate defeat at the hands of Progres on Tuesday. And former Rangers midfielder Barton, who left Ibrox in acrimonious fashion last season, is not convinced the side from Luxembourg could cut it in the fifth-tier of English football, now known as the National League. "You can't get away from it, it is a terrible result," Barton said to talkSPORT.   "It is arguably the worst result in British footballing history in Europe because you shouldn't get beat to a team from Luxembourg.  "You can understand the frustration of the Rangers fans. They have been to the depths of Scottish football and they are on the way back up.  "There is a wider issue in the context of Scottish teams in Europe. Barring Celtic they haven't done well in Europe for a long time and that affects the co-efficient and Scottish teams have to play these preliminary games.  "They should be overcoming teams who are fourth in Luxembourg and from Gibraltar with ease because you have got to look at the comparative level of those sides. In the English pyramid where would they be? Would they even be in the Conference? I don't know if they would. Utd better off with Morata than Griezmann "You are probably looking at the equivalent of the Unibond league, whatever that is now. From that respect, a massive football club in Rangers, it is sad to see." Barton feels Rangers' loss is worse than Celtic's stunning first-leg defeat to Lincoln Red Imps from Gibraltar in last season's Champions League qualifiers, which Brendan Rodgers' men managed to overturn and ultimately reach the group stage. "I think there is no doubt about it," said Barton. "It is a two-legged tie, so even if Rangers had lost last night but managed to get through in the tie, while it would've shown there is a lot of work to be done, the main aim is still winning in any manner, getting through to the next round, that's cup football.  "Rangers haven't done that, Celtic did against Lincoln Red Imps so that negates the terrible result that it is. Everyone does [find it inconceivable]. "I love Rangers. I'm gutted when I see that result. I know how many people pay hard-earned money to travel and passionately support that football club. That is the most disappointing thing when they are back in Europe for the first time."

    It's not possible! - Progres coach Amodio revels in Rangers upset

    Springing a shock Europa League exit on Scottish Premiership side Rangers left Progres Niedercorn coach Paolo Amodio claiming his men had achieved the impossible. The Luxembourgers sealed a 2-0 home win on Tuesday to go through 2-1 on aggregate, marking their first victory in a UEFA tie in 14 attempts. Maradona wants Insigne to shine A delighted Amodio told BBC Scotland: "It's a great event, amazing. "I cannot believe that we won 2-0 against Rangers. It's not possible. We made history and I can't believe it. It's incredible." Ahead of the match, Gers boss Pedro Caixinha had described the possibility of defeat as "unthinkable", but his side – who did hit the crossbar twice in the closing stages – produced a limp display. The Portuguese shouldered the blame and was apologetic to the club's supporters after one of the worst results in Rangers' history. "We need to apologise to our fans because they gave us support and loyalty, they don't deserve this," he told Rangers TV. "I assume all the responsibility. "We could not do what we were here to do – win the game. It's something that happens once in a lifetime – it happens to us today."

    Rangers suffer shock Europa League exit

    Rangers' Europa League campaign was brought to a humiliating halt in the first qualifying round with a 2-1 aggregate defeat at the hands of Progres Niedercorn. The Scottish Premiership side slumped to a 2-0 second-leg loss in Luxembourg on Tuesday as manager Pedro Caixinha oversaw a defeat that he had described in the build-up as "unthinkable". 'Rangers are an utter embarrassment' Olivier Thill was the hero for the hosts – who secured their first win in a UEFA tie in 14 attempts – setting up Emmanuel Francoise to bundle in a 66th-minute opener before his cross-cum-shot from a free-kick deceived Wes Foderingham and found the goalkeeper's bottom-right corner. Rangers fought to find the breakthrough that would have sent them through on away goals, but Josh Windass saw his late header pushed onto the crossbar by substitute keeper Charly Schinker, who replaced the injured Sebastian Flauss in the first half. There was still time for first-leg goalscorer Kenny Miller to also strike the woodwork as the Gers' European hopes were ended at the first hurdle. In the only other qualifying tie of the day, Videoton's 3-3 draw at Balzan saw the Hungarians go through 5-3 on aggregate.

    Ajax won't sell Dolberg and demand €40 million for Barca target Sanchez

    Ajax are determined to keep Kasper Dolberg and Amin Younes and are not prepared to sell Davinson Sanchez for less than €40million, director of football Marc Overmars has said. Centre-back Sanchez has been linked with a move to Barcelona after impressing in Ajax's run to the Europa League final last season. Dolberg to reject 'every big club' Younes, meanwhile, is reportedly a target for a number of Bundesliga clubs, while striker Dolberg has been tipped for a move to the Premier League or Serie A after scoring 23 times in all competitions last term. Overmars, however, has no intention of allowing Sanchez to leave on the cheap and has ruled out the prospect of selling the attacking duo, who he hopes will learn from experienced forward Klaas-Jan Huntelaar in 2017-18. "Kasper Dolberg and Amin Younes are not for sale," he told De Telegraaf. Why Barca want Ajax star Sanchez "Klaas-Jan Huntelaar and Dolberg are a top tandem of master and student." On Sanchez, who has also been linked with Real Madrid and Inter, Overmars added: "For less than €40m, he's not going anywhere."
