Linfield's Euro adventure ends

Linfield bowed out of the Europa League as 10-man FC Xanthi battled for an away-goals win in extra time at Windsor Park.

The Irish side held a 1-0 lead from the first leg but could not defend their advantage, despite seeing the visitors reduced to 10 men just before half-time when Konstantinos Fliskas was sent off.

By then the Greek side were level on aggregate thanks to Pereira Marcelinho's 27th-minute effort, but Linfield could not make their man advantage tell in normal time.

The hosts did take the lead again in the 99th minute when Michael Gault powered home a thumping volley, but Marcelinho popped up with his second in the 105th minute to make it 2-2 on aggregate and send Xanthi through on away goals.
