Dinamo have beaten Luxembourg champions CS Fola Esch in Luxembourg 3-0 last night to win 3-1 on aggregate after their first leg tie was drawn 1-1 in Zagreb last week. A double from in-form striker Marko Pjaca before half-time, and a 74th minute strike from record-signing Marko Rog made sure of the victory for the Croatians that has sent them into the 3rd round of qualifying for Europe’s premiere club competition.

Dinamo will play Norway’s Molde FK in the 3rd round, with the first tie at Zagreb’s Maksimir stadium on 28 July.
