Dundee United suffered late heartache as they bowed out of Uefa Cup qualifying on away goals.
After holding MyPa to a 0-0 draw in Finland Dundee appeared to be in a commanding position following goals from Mark Kerr and Collin Samuel, but a brace from Adriano in the second half ended the Taysiders' European adventure.
Kerr had given United a fine start when a half-cleared free-kick fell to the former Falkirk man outside the area, allowing him to volley home superbly.
With 27 minutes gone the Scottish side extended their lead when a Barry Robson cross was nodded on by Jim McIntyre and Samuel smashed home from close range.
However, a penalty gave MyPa the impetus they needed, with Adriano grabbing his first from the spot.
With 81 minutes gone, Adriano scored a second and left Dundee United's hopes of progressing into the Uefa Cup proper in tatters.
