Sisto fired Celta ahead in the 63rd minute to hand them a two goal lead ( on aggregate ). Sisto picked up the loose ball in midfield before driving towards the Genk penalty area and firing a fierce right-footed effort high past Ryan.

Genk equalised after 4 minutes through Trossard. Cabral gave the ball away cheaply straight to Trossard just outside the penalty area, and the winger keept his cool to surge forward and slot the ball across Alvarez.

They had scored 2 vital away goals which meant that they just needed to score one goal and defend that goal but this proved to be too much.
