CL Qual: Lazio turn the tables on Dinamo

CL 3rd Qual Round, Second Leg: Dinamo Bucharest 1-3 Lazio (Agg: 2-4)
Lazio teetered on the brink of a Champions League exit before a second-half comeback took them past Dinamo Bucharest and into the group stage - winning 4-2 on aggregate.

Following a 1-1 draw in Rome, this tie was finely balanced and it seemed that the Romanian champions were heading into the Champions League proper for the first time when Florin Bratu gave them a lead they held at the break. But Lazio were a transformed team after the interval: Tommaso Rocchi's penalty quickly levelled matters and he struck again to seal victory after Goran Pandev had put the visitors ahead.

Delio Rossi's side will join Inter, Milan, and Roma for Thursday's group stage draw in Monte Carlo.
