Takashi Inui was on target as Eintracht Frankfurt qualified for the Europa League group stage on Thursday night.

Takashi Inui was on target as Eintracht Frankfurt qualified for the Europa League group stage on Thursday night.

The 25-year old Japanese winger headed home in the 75th minute of Eintracht’s 2-1 second leg home win to progress past Qarabag FK 4-1 on aggregate.

Alexander Meier, who scored a brace in the 2-0 win over the Azerbaijan side last week, gave the Germans the lead in the return bout with a neat side-footed volley at the back post from Sebastian Rode’s 10th minute cross.

Reynaldo gave Qarabag some hope with a 58th minute response but Inui secured the pathway through to the group stage with his timely first goal of the campaign.
