Athletic Bilbao progress to the group stage of the Europa League despite their 3-3 draw with HJK in the second leg of their playoff tie on Thursday.

Athletic Bilbao have progressed to the group stage of the Europa League despite their 3-3 draw with HJK on Thursday.

The Basque giants lost the second leg of their playoff tie in Finland, but their 6-0 victory in the first leg at home last week sees them go through 9-3 on aggregate.

HJK were in control right from the start and went ahead through Rasmus Schuller in the 25th minute.

Joel Perovuo doubled the home side's advantage at the Sonera Stadium in Helsinki in the 62nd minute, only for Mikel San Jose to halve the deficit five minutes later.

Antti Muurinen's side regained their two-goal cushion on 70 minutes when Joel Pohjanpalo found the target, but Gaizka Toquero netted Bilbao's second of the evening seven minutes later.

HJK were reduced to 10 men with eight minutes left on the clock when Akseli Pelvas was sent off for a second bookable offence.

Bilbao found their third goal of the evening through Igor Martinez in the 88th minute as they carved out a 3-3 draw.
