An own goal by Dan Califf
shattered Danish club Midtjylland's dream of a monumental upset of Manchester City in the UEFA Cup when it allowed the EPL club to even up the two-leg series at 1-1 and send it to a
shootout, where Man City prevailed, 4-2. Carlos Bocanegra
had a header cleared off the line in French club Rennes' 2-0 win over Stabaek of
Norway that erased a 2-1 deficit from the first leg. Ryan Guy
went the distance in Irish club St. Patrick's 2-1 win over Elfsborg of Sweden
that gave it a 4-3 win on aggregate. Both St. Patrick's goals came in the last four minutes.
With Brad Friedel
in goal, EPL club Aston
Villa cruised into the next round with a 1-1 tie against Iceland's FH Hafnarfjordur in Birmingham that followed a 4-1 win on the road.
