Dundalk FC's Europa League conquerors, AEK Larnaca, have qualified for the competition's group stages for just the second time.

Andoni Iraola's side, who knocked the Lilywhites out after a 4-0 second leg victory on August 2, defeated Slovakia's AS Trencin 3-0 at the AEK Arena last night to secure a 4-1 aggregate win. It comes after they smashed Sturm Graz of Austria in round three, 7-0 over the two legs.

Larnaca now enter today's group stage draw, a round they last contested in 2011/12.

Meanwhile, Dundalk face Limerick in the SSE Airtricity League Premier Division tonight seeking to maintain, or perhaps extend, their three-point lead over Cork City at the table's summit.
