HJK Helsinki 3-0 Connah's Quay (Agg: 3-1)

Connah's Quay Nomads v Hjk Helsinki
Helsinki are eight points clear at the top of Veikkausliiga, the Finnish Premier Division, and have scored 37 goals in 16 games.

Connah's Quay Nomads failed to protect a slender first-leg advantage as Helsinki secured their passage into the Europa League second qualifying round.

Nomads took a shock 1-0 win to Finland, but Helsinki levelled the tie after just 11 minutes when Moshtagh Yaghoubi scored directly from a free-kick.

Akseli Pelvas gave the home side an aggregate lead just before the break.

And his second 10 minutes into the second half wrapped up a comfortable victory for the Finnish league leaders.

Helsinki will now face Macedonian side Shkendija in the second qualifying round.
