16 March 2006 23:59

GELSENKIRCHEN/SEVILLA, Mar 16 (SW) - Schalke 04 and Steaua Bucharest are through to the quarter finals of the UEFA Cup following victories over Palermo and Real Betis respectively.

Schalke 04 - Palermo 3-0

Schalke 04 win 3-1 on aggregate

Schalke had a 1-0 deficit to overcome from the first leg and the Germans levelled the aggregate score in the 44th minute, when a penalty was converted by Levan Kobiashvili. Palermo's Eugenio Corini had been sent off a minute earlier.

Soren Larsen then scored Schalke's second in the 72nd minute, but the Italians knew that one goal could still be enough to advance to the quarter finals. However, Schalke had different plans and netted a third through Mimoun Azaouagh in the 80th minute.

Real Betis - Steaua Bucharest 0-3

Steaua Bucharest win 3-0 on aggregate

After a scoreless draw in the first leg, anything was possible in the second. Banel Nicolita put the Romanian guests in the lead after 54 minutes, due to which Betis now needed two goals.

The Spaniards suffered another blow seven minutes later, as international player Joaquin was sent off. Constantin Victoras Iacob decided the match with Steaua's second goal in the 78th minute, and Nicolita added another in the 82nd.
