Cork City missed out on the chance of a place in the Europa League play-offs when they went down 2-1 against Racing Club Genk in the second leg of their third qualifying-round tie at Turner's Cross, losing 3-1 on aggregate.

John Caulfield's men were looking to overturn a 1-0 deficit from the first leg in Belgium, but fell behind to a goal from former Rangers midfielder Thomas Buffel, with Sebastien Dewaest's header just before half-time putting the visitors firmly in command.

The League of Ireland side put in an impressive third qualifying round first-leg showing against their Belgian Pro League hosts but were undone by Leon Bailey's 31st-minute goal.

Cork City advanced in the Europa League after beating Linfield.

Cork City won their Europa League first qualifying-round clash with Linfield 2-1 on aggregate after a 1-1 draw in Thursday's second leg.

Mark Stafford quickly equalised on the night for the Northern Irish side but Cork held on to set up a second-round clash with Swedish...
