Vedad Ibisevic: Scored the goals for Stuttgart to put them in the draw for the Europa League
Stuttgart added to Dinamo Moscow's problems by eliminating the Russian club from the Europa League play-offs with a 3-1 aggregate victory.
The German side ran out 2-0 winners in last week's first leg and a 1-1 draw in the return on Tuesday evening was not enough for the Russian side to avoid an early exit.
Vedad Ibisevic bagged both goals in Stuttgart's first-leg triumph and put the tie to bed as a contest in the return leg with the opening goal after 64 minutes.
Aleksandr Kokorin hit a 78th minute consolation for Dinamo, whose attention must now turn to arresting their dismal domestic form which has left them bottom of the Russian Premier League.
Victory for Stuttgart puts them into the draw for the Europa League group stage, which gets under way with the first round of matches on 20th September.
