Palermo advanced into the last 16 of the Uefa Cup with a 1-0 win over Slavia Prague.

Thanks to the away goals rule, the Rosanero will now face Schalke in the next round after Denis Godeas' 51st minute winner made it 2-2 on aggregate.

The former Triestina man had only just been introduced as a second-half substitute when he fired home with an unstoppable shot on the turn inside the Prague area.

The visitors fought gamely and could have sent the tie into extra time had it not been for a fantastic last minute save from Mariano Andujar (pictured).

A deflected Karel Kratochvil shot looked to have wrong-footed the Palermo keeper but he managed to get the ball to safety and secure a nervy win for the Italians.

The biggest upset of the night came in France, where Monaco crashed out of the competition after only managing a 1-1 draw with Basle.

Things seemed to be going according to plan when Italian international Christian Vieri put the Principality oufit ahead from the penalty spot after 21 minutes.

But the tie was turned on its head when Majstorovic equalised 11 minutes into the second half, giving the Swiss an unexpected 2-1 aggregate victory and setting up a last sixteen tie with Strasbourg.

Artmedia Bratislava's European adventure finally came to an end in Bulgaria, where Levski Sofia lined up a tie with Udinese after securing a 2-0 win.

Emil Angelov opened the scoring after 14 minutes before doubling the advantage thirteen minutes later to seal a 3-0 aggregate win.

Andreu Melli bagged a winner in extra time to send Real Betis into the next round after an entertaining scrap with AZ Alkmaar ended 2-1.

Former Rangers marksman Shota Arveladze continued his impressive season with a 26th minute opener before Kew Jaliens struck nine minutes later to level the scores over two legs.

Neither side was able to break the deadlock until Melli snatched victory in the 94th minute to set up a clash with Steaua Bucharest. 

Daniel van Buyten scored twice to give Hamburg a 2-0 win (2-1 on aggregate) over FC Thun.

The former Manchester City defender struck first just after the kick-off with a clinical finish underneath the Thun keeper.

He then secured a final 16 clash against Rapid Bucharest just after the half hour mark with an unmarked header from Iranian international Mehdi Madavikia's corner.

A 73rd minute effort from Lincoln set the seal on an impressive performance from Schalke as they saw off Espanyol 3-0 on the night and 5-1 on aggregate. Ebbe Sand (70) and Kevin Kuranyi (54) also registered their names on the scoresheet.

Udinese progressed with relative ease against Lens, although Pierre-Alain Frau's 55th minute effort did briefly set Italian hearts aflutter. The Serie A outfit hung on gamely, however, finally emerging as comfortable 3-1 winners on aggregate.
