Rotterdam football club Feyenoord has qualified for the semi finals of the Conference League competition with a 3-1 away win against Slavia Prague.

The goal margin was more than enough to put the Rotterdammers into their first European semi final in 20 years after the 3-3 draw in the Kuip stadium last week. Cyriel Dessers was man of the match with two goals to his name.

Feyenoord will meet Olympique Marseille in the battle for a place in the finals.

Elsewhere, there was disappointment for PSV Eindhoven who lost 2-1 at home to Leicester City and are now out of contention. PSV were without Noni Madueke and Olivier Boscagli through injury.

PSV meet Amsterdam side Ajax in the final of the KNVB Cup on Sunday.
