Dynamo, BATE advance to CL playoffs

LONDON, Aug 8: Dynamo Kiev and BATE Borisov advanced to the playoff round of Champions League qualifying round with 3-1 aggregate victories on Tuesday night.

Ideye Brown scored in second-half stoppage time to give Dynamo a 1-0 win at Feyenoord.

Dynamo arrived in Rotterdam with a goal advantage following a 2-1 home win in the opening match of their third qualifying round fixture, but they had to wait until the dying moments of their away leg before they extended that.

It looked as though the two teams would fight out a goalless draw but, with plenty of added time, Brown scored in the 96th minute to make certain of the Ukrainian side’s passage to the next round.

BATE arrived in Hungary deadlocked at 1-1 with Debrecen after the first leg but goals by Dmitri Mozolevski in the 25th and Aleksandr Volodko in the 59th secured advancement for the club from Belarus.
