Football: Ireland's Dundalk reach Champions League play-offs after shock win over Borisov

PARIS (AFP) - Irish champions Dundalk stunned Bate Borisov of Belarus 3-0 on Tuesday to advance to the final qualifying round of this season's Champions League.

Dundalk trailed 0-1 after last week's first leg of their third-round qualifying tie, but a brace from David McMillan and a late third goal from Robert Benson powered the hosts to a 3-1 aggregate victory in Dublin.

Dundalk will attempt to become the first League of Ireland club to reach the Champions League group stages, having now assured themselves of at least a Europa League spot.

Apoel struck three times in second-half stoppage time to overcome Rosenborg 4-2 on aggregate, while Dinamo Zagreb, Ludogorets and Viktoria Plzen also sealed their places in the play-off round with the draw taking place in Monaco on Friday.

Scottish champions Celtic will hope to overcome Astana in Glasgow on Wednesday after the reverse fixture in Kazakhstan finished 1-1.

Monaco must overturn a 1-2 deficit at home to Fenerbahce, while Ajax head to Greece after being held to a 1-1 draw by PAOK last week. Shakhtar Donetsk are in control of their tie with Young Boys following a 2-0 victory in Ukraine.
