Denmark’s Midtjylland, Austria’s Salzburg and Russian side Krasnodar clinched the last three berths in the Champions League group stage after winning their playoff ties on Wednesday.

Midtjylland earned a comeback 4-1 win over Slavia Prague following a goalless draw in the first leg, with Alexander Scholz netting a twice-taken penalty to put them in the driving seat before Frank Onyeka and Anders Dreyer completed the rout.

Krasnodar ground down PAOK Salonika 4-2 on aggregate after a 2-1 win in Greece, with Frenchman Remy Cabella sealing their passage after Omar El Kaddouri had cancelled out a freakish Giannis Micahilidis own goal.

Salzburg eased to a 3-1 home win over Maccabi Tel Aviv on the night for a 5-2 overall victory, with striker Patson Daka scoring twice.
