Hibernians sealed their passage to the second qualifying round of the Champions League after beating FCI Tallinn 1-0 in Estonia to complete a 3-0 aggregate victory.



The Maltese champions' reward for their victory in the initial round of Europe's flagship competition is a lucrative second qualifying round tie against Austrian powerhouse Red Bull Salzburg.

 

Leading 2-0 from last week's first leg, courtesy of second-half goals from Jorginho and Bjorn Kristensen, Hibernians overcame the loss to injury of goalkeeper Andrew Hogg after just 15 minutes to hold on to their advantage.

 

 

Jorginho put Hibs' minds at rest when he found the net a minute from time after receiving from Johann Bezzina.

 

The first leg of the Champions League second qualifying round tie between Hibernians and Red Bull Salzburg is scheduled for next Tuesday, July 11, at 18.00
