Schmidt reached the round of 16 with Benfica

AC Milan is also through despite the 2:3 (1:1) defeat at Stade Rennes; the top Italian club won the first leg 3:0 (1:0). Three-time international Malick Thiaw came on as a substitute for Milan in the 80th minute.

Meanwhile, Shakhtar Donetsk missed the chance of another “home game” in Hamburg, the 1:3 (1:1) at Olympique Marseille (first leg: 2:2) meant the end for the Ukrainians.

Azerbaijan’s champions Qarabag Agdam pulled off a surprise, becoming the first club in their country to reach the round of 16 of a European Cup. The 2:3 (0:2, 0:0) after extra time against the Portuguese from Sporting Braga was enough after the 4:2 win in the first leg; Agdam only scored the decisive goal for the final score in injury time of extra time.

In the Conference League, Ajax Amsterdam escaped defeat against FK Bodö/Glimt, and the Dutch won 2-1 (1-1, 1-0) after extra time against the Norwegian champions. In the first leg, Ajax were 2-0 down, but saved a 2-2 draw with two goals in stoppage time.
