Levante progress to the Europa League group stage as Theofanis Gekas's second-half strike wraps up a comfortable 3-0 aggregate win for the La Liga side over Motherwell.

Motherwell's hopes of reaching the Europa League group stage for the first time in their history are over for another season.

Trailing 2-0 following last week's first leg at Fir Park, Stuart McCall's men were unable to turn the tie around at Ciutat de Valencia and were eventually beaten 3-0 on aggregate.

After doing well to hold their opponents to a scoreless opening 45 minutes, the SPL side tired in the second half.

Nabil El Zhar went close to opening scoring with a superb solo effort, but it was Theofanis Gekas who made the breakthrough, finishing off a low cross from Juanlu with an expertly-taken half-volley 18 minutes from time.

Levante are now unbeaten in their last four matches at home.
