Milan booked their place in the UEFA Champions League group phase, while Benfica and Hamburg will also be in the hat on Thursday.

Carlo Ancelotti took his team to the Serbian capital with a 1-0 advantage over Crvena Zvezda from the first leg.

A potentially tricky tie became much more straightforward when Filippo Inzaghi put the Italian giants ahead on 29 minutes.

Clarence Seedorf scored a second goal on 79 minutes, and though Dusan Djokic replied instantly for the hosts, Milan closed out a 3-1 aggregate triumph.

Hamburg moved into the group stages after squeezing past Osasuna on away goals after a 1-1 draw in Spain.

The first leg had finished 0-0, but Osasuna wasted little time in breaking the deadlock when Carlos Cuellar scored after just six minutes.

But a 74th minute goal from former Ajax midfielder Nigel de Jong clinched a spot in the lucrative group phase for Hamburg.

Former European Cup winners Benfica had little trouble in accounting for Austria Vienna, following a 1-1 draw in the first leg.

Rui Costa put Benfica ahead on 21 minutes and Nuno Gomes added a second goal on the stroke of half time.

Petit completed the scoring on 57 minutes as Benfica sealed a 4-1 aggregate success over their Austrian opponents.

Valencia also brushed past Austrian opposition after a 3-0 home success over Red Bull Salzburg.

The Liga outfit trailed 1-0 from the first game, but parity was quickly restored through Fernando Morientes after 12 minutes.

David Villa put the Che ahead on aggregate with a 33rd minute goal and the Spain international put a seal on things in the last minute.
