It's three goals in as many matches for the fleet-footed winger as his side breezed past their Dutch visitors on Thursday

Philip Azango was on target as AS Trencin humiliated Feyenoord 4-0 to boost their chances of reaching Europa League playoffs.

The winger had scored in both legs as Trencin defeated Górnik Zabrze to secure a third qualifying round spot, and continued in such vein in his third consecutive game in the competition.

Antonio Mance found the back of the net in the sixth and 37th minutes to hand the hosts a two-goal lead before the former Plateau United winger added a third just before the interval.

Mance completed his hat-trick few minutes after the hour mark to seal the comprehensive victory over the Eredivisie outfit.

Holding a huge four-goal advantage into the second leg fixture, Trencin will hope to ease their way into the playoffs when they battle Giovanni van Bronckhorst's men at  De Kuip on July 16, with the 21-year-old Nigerian also hoping to extend his goalscoring run in Europe.
