Nuno's Wolves and Guimarães join Braga in the Europa League third qualifying round
Wolverhampton Wanderers and Guimaraes both secured second leg victories to advance to the next stage of Europa League qualifiers.
Wolves overcame Northern Irish outfit Crusaders 2-0 in their first leg meeting, and followed that up with a 1-4 victory away from home to secure a 6-1 aggregate win.
Former Benfica striker Raul Jimenez bagged himself two goals in the process, a tremendous brace on his return to the fold at the club after he helped Mexico lift the Gold Cup earlier this summer.
Guimaraes, meanwhile, followed up their last-gasp 1-0 victory over Luxembourg side Jeunesse Esch in the first leg with a comfortable 4-0 win in Portugal. Guimaraes were always in control of proceedings, and it was Edmond Tapsoba who got the first goal for his Portuguese club, followed by Alexandre Guedes who scored a very tidy from an angle, before Tapsoba got his second of the night from the penalty spot. Joao Carlos Teixeira rounded off the rout in the last minute.
As a result of their victory, Guimaraes will now face Latvian outfit Ventspils in the next round, who earned a 6-2 victory over Malta’s Gzira United.
Wolves will then play Pyunik in the third qualifying round, who surprisingly beat Czech side Jablonec over two legs 2-1.
Braga also enter the hat at this stage of the competition. They will play against Danish outfit Brondby, who today overcame Lechia Gdansk after winning the second leg 4-1 after extra time.
