thumbnail Hello, reviews the early kick-offs in this evening's Europa League play-off round...

PSG 2-0 Maccabi Tel Aviv

PSG made the perfect start to their European campaign in the third minute when a Ceara cross was poorly dealt with, allowing Peguy Luyindula to fire home. Schalke target Guillaume Hoarau doubled the lead on the hour mark when he fired past Maccabi 'keeper Liran Strauber.

Bayer Leverkusen 3-0 Tavriya

Bayer were even faster out of the blocks than PSG. Michal Kadlec took advantage of a poor punch by visiting goalkeeper Vitaliy Postranskyi to give his side the lead in the first minute. Kadlec then scored a vital second goal five minutes from time, heading home from a corner. Returning hero Michael Ballack then scored his first goal in his second spell at the Bay Arena with a penalty in stoppage time.

Slovan Bratislava 0-1 Stuttgart

A late goal two minutes from the end from striker Martin Harnik gives Christian Gross' side a handy cushion ahead of next week's second leg. The game will likely be remembered more for the five minute delay towards the end of the first-half when a number of fans invaded the pitch and had to be restrained.

Feyenoord 1-0 KAA Gent

Feyenoord deservedly came out top in the battle of the Benelux. Elimane Coulibaly wasted an excellent first-half chance for de Buffalo's when he hit the side netting with team-mate Randall Azofeifa better positioned. The much sought after Leroy Fer decided the first leg when he fired home from a poorly defended corner.
