Emmanuel Emenike’s Olympiacos have advanced to the Play-off round of the UEFA Champions League on a 5-3 aggregate win against Partizan after a 3-1 first leg victory in Greece and a 2-2 draw on Wednesday night.
Emenike did not start and played no role in Wednesday’s second leg clash at the Karaiskakis Stadium in Piraeus.
The 30-year-old joined the Greek giants from Fenerbahçe after four difficult seasons which included two loans spells at Al Ain (UAE) and EPL side, West Ham United.
The Red-Whites had entered the second leg with a 3-1 advantage from the first leg.
They now wait for the draw on Friday to find out their next opponents.
Meanwhile, the duo of Anthony Nwakaeme and John Ogu also helped their club, Hapoel Be’er Sheva reach the final play-off round.
Although the Ligat HA’al champions lost, they progressed on away goals, though the fixture ended 3-3 on aggregate.
Hapoel secured a 2-0 first leg win in Israel and scored a defining away goal in their 3-1 defeat to Ludogorets.
