FC Twente confirmed their place in the Champions League play-off final with a 5-1 win over NAC Breda on Saturday which included a 15-minute delay while the home supporters were pacified.

After winning 3-0 in the first leg, Twente made life impossible for the hosts when Stein Huysegems opened the scoring for Twente after 52 minutes. NAC pulled one back two minutes later through Csaba Feher, but as in the first leg the Breda side failed to finish the game with 11 men as Victor Sikora was sent off just before the hour mark.

That proved to be the final straw for NAC, who fell to pieces leaving Blaise Nkufo, Youssouf Hersi, Huysegems again and Edson Braafheid to complete the rout.
