FULL TIME The full time whistle is greeted with a huge roar from the home fans, as Eintracht Frankfurt book their place in the group stages of a European comeptition for the first time in seven years. Qarabag FK weren't without the chances and deserved to score, but in the end the Eagles' quality told as they collected a 2-1 win on the night and 4-1 on aggregate.

90'Kevin Trapp makes a comfortable save to deny Richard's free-kick finding the top corner as three minutes of added time go up on the fourth official's board.

82'Frankfurt's second goal has taken the sting out of the game. The home are still in good voice and creating an atmosphere of worthy of the European stage, but on the pitch there's is little left to play for with both sides slowing the pace of proceedings.

76'GOAL!Frankfurt respond in the best way possible by registering a goal that is all of Jan Rosenthal's making. The former SC Freiburg striker plays a fine back heel before finding space down the right and then shows his experience by biding his time, getting the keeper to commit and picking out a inch-perfect cross which Takashi Inui heads home.

74'Reynaldo dances his way past four Frankfurt defenders and almost hands Qarabag the lead only for his curling effort to drift just wide of the far post.

70'Joselu replaces the veteran striker, who seems to be struggling with a thigh injury.

68'Alexander Meier is hobbling in the middle of the park and has indicated he needs to come off. Not great news for Frankfurt who take on Borussia Dortmund on the weekend.

63'Eintracht Frankfurt head coach Armin Veh doesn't seem too concerned about conceding as he makes two changes to his side bringing off Sebastian Rode and Pirmin Schwegler, who have both been exceptional this evening. As a result, goalscorer Alexander Meier has been handed the captain's armband, which he's having some trouble wrapping around his arm.

57' GOAL!Qarabag have scored their first goal against German opposition, to pull on back and keep things interesting. Reynaldo, who had only just come off the bench, collected Leroy George's pass and required just four touches of the ball to level the scores on the evening. The visitors still require two goals to knock Frankfurt out of the competion.

51' Bouyed by the boistrous supporters, Frankfurt have already proven they're not content resting on their laurels as Stefan Aigner stings the palms of Miro Varvodic to earn his side a corner, which they fail to make the most of.

HALF TIMEAlexander Meier's goal remains the difference between Eintracht Frankfurt and Qarabag FK at the break. The visitors have upped the pressure since conceding by threatening on the counter attack, but with a three-goal aggregate lead the Eagles look to be on course for the UEFA Europa League goup stages.

42'Frankfurt almost turn it around straight away though as Stefan Aigner breaks forward into space on the right before drilling the ball across the box, where Takashi Inui is just a few yards off the pace and unable to get a touch on the ball.

40'Frankfurt are playing some fantastic football and combining to great effect with some seemingly effortless one-touch passing. However, the penetration the demonstrated during the opening exchanges has dried up for now as Vugar Nadirov draws a comfortable save out of Kevin Trapp.

32' The visitors are beginning to threaten in front of goal. Rashad Sadigov fails to find the target with a free-kick from 25 yards, but there are signs that Qarabag aren't just going to roll over for Frankfurt.

24'Qarabag, who have never scored against a German opponent, register their first chance on goal as Chumbinho flash an effort wide of the target that failed to worry Frankfurt custodian Kevin Trapp.

20'Armin Veh's charges are brimming with confidence and tiring out their opponents with some fantastic passing. The Eagles have taken some of the pace out of the game since registering the opening goal, but are still looking incredibly dangerous in and around the visitors penalty area.

15'Eintracht Frankfurt are in complete control of proceedings inside their own stadium with Qarabag yet to combine to any effect in the hosts half. At the other end Stefan Aigner fails to fire home from a narrow angle as the Eagles look to press their advantage.

10'GOAL! The linesman keeps his flag down on this occassion though, as Alexander Meier converts Sebastian Rode's cross, bagging his third goal against Qarabag to give the hosts a comfortable 3-0 aggregate lead.

8'Alexander Meier puts the ball in the back of the net for Frankfurt only to see the effort ruled out by the offside flag.

4' The first chance of the match falls to Eintracht Frankfurt as Alexander Meier plays in Takashi Inui, whose shot is blocked behind for a corner.
