Turkish outfit Genclerbirligi booked their place in the last 16 of the Uefa Cup with a tremendous 3-0 win over Parma, earning them a 4-0 aggregate success.
The Turks took a 1-0 advantage into the home leg and they recorded another success at their 19 Mayis Stadium.
The match was all but over after 34 minutes when Parma had their French keeper Sebastian Frey dismissed for a professional foul.
Frey also gave away a penalty which was dispatched by Filip Daems and Parma were left with a real mountain to climb.
The Italians pushed forward but could not make any sort of breakthrough and it was Genclerbirligi who increased their lead when Matteo Ferrari (pictured) put through his own net with nine minutes remaining.
Genclerbirligi then completed their emphatic victory in the final minute with Ali Tandogan pouncing.
Roma overturned a 1-0 deficit from their first leg, after a 2-0 success over Gaziantepspor earned them a fourth round spot.
The Turkish outfit had secured a shock 1-0 win in the first leg, but they could not hang on to their advantage as the Italians fought back.
Emerson put Roma ahead after 22 minutes to level the match on aggregate, before starlet Antonio Cassano pounced just before half time to secure victory.
PSV Eindhoven made surprisingly easy work of their return leg with Perugia as they eased to a 3-1 success at The Philips Stadion.
The first leg in Italy had finished 0-0 and Perugia were looking to keep the game tight.
However, PSV broke the deadlock after just 22 minutes when defender Kevin Hofland scored.
Serbian star Mateja Kezman then scored (44 & 48) either side of half time to put the game beyond Perugia.
The Italians pulled one back in the final minute through Brazilian Ze Maria - but it was too little too late for the Serie A outfit - who now have chance to concentrate on their domestic relegation battle.
Internazionale moved into the fourth round of the Uefa Cup on away goals after they were held to a 0-0 draw by Sochaux at The Giuseppe Meazza.
After drawing 2-2 in France in the first leg, Inter always had the advantage - but they could not create a clear lead as Sochaux battled hard.
Inter were even forced to finish the game with ten players as Christian Vieiri was sent off with four minutes remaining.
