Swansea eased into the Europa League play-off round with a comfortable goalless draw in Malmo which gave them a 4-0 aggregate win.

An upset was never threatened in the second leg of this third qualifying round tie and Michael Laudrup's side were rarely troubled as they advanced with ease. Wilfried Bony, the two-goal hero last week, had the ball in the net again this week but was denied by an offside flag, while Michu, Wayne Routledge and Jonathan de Guzman failed to finish good chances.

But Motherwell went out 3-0 on aggregate to Kuban Krasnodar , losing 1-0 on the night thanks to a Stephen McManus own goal.

Motherwell did not look like pulling back the deficit even before McManus headed into his own net five minutes into the second half. Their evening got worse when Bob McHugh missed a penalty.s scoring the only goal.

There was also heartache for St Johnstone who went out on penalties at home to Minsk. A 75th-minute goal from Milos Rnic cancelled out St Johnstone's away goal in the first leg and even though the tie went to extra time there were no further goals. Minsk won the shootout 3-2 when Dave MacKay and Paddy Cregg missed from the spot.
