Linfield’s famous victory in the first leg in Greece marked an historic milestone for the Northern Ireland Premiership side who made it three consecutive victories in Europe for the first time.
The Blues, who have yet to concede a goal in the tournament, began the campaign in record-breaking fashion when defeating IF Fuglafjorour of the Faroe Islands 5-0 on aggregate in the first qualifying round, their biggest aggregate victory since beating Aris Bonnevoie 9-4 over two legs in the 1966-67 European Cup.

Despite being massive underdogs for the first leg tie against Xanthe, David Jeffrey’s men had the grit and determination to come away with a deserved 1-0 advantage from Pigadia. Aaron Burn grabbed the winner with a left foot shot on 25 minutes and Linfield went close on two other occasions when James Knowles had a shot deflected for a corner and Michael Carvill saw his 25-yard screamer tipped over the bar.
Linfield’s defence dealt comfortably with what little threat the Greeks posed and Jeffrey’s will be hoping for another clean sheet which would assure his team a place in the third qualifying round.
