Malmö’s Veljko Birmančević has been a star of the Swedish champion’s progress through four qualifying rounds.
The Serbia international’s fourth goal in five games — a free kick from distance — was key in a 2-1 loss at Ludogorets that carried Malmö through 3-2 on aggregate.
Young Boys advanced with a second 3-2 win against Ferencváros to repeat the first-leg result in Switzerland last week.
The Swiss champion led early through defender Cédric Zesiger’s goal, then leveled at 2-2 early in the second half with Christian Fassnacht’s goal.
Ferencváros had defender Aïssa Laïdouni sent off before Young Boys’ United States forward Jordan Siebatcheu saw his penalty saved. The win was sealed in stoppage time by substitute Felix Mambimbi.
Young Boys coach David Wagner, the former U.S. international, will lead his team back into the Champions League less than one year after being fired by Schalke during a Bundesliga-record winless run of games.
Three more second-leg games are scheduled Wednesday to complete the 32-team lineup for the groups. The draw will be made Thursday in Istanbul, Turkey.
PSV, Ludogorets and Ferencváros switch across to the Europa League groups which will be drawn on Friday.
