               Benefica Eliminates Napoles in UEFA Tournament

Four Dutch premier league teams -- Ajax, Heerenveen, Twente and Feyenoord -- all beat their opponents on Thursday night to reach the group stage of the 2008/2009 UEFA Cup competition.

In Amsterdam, Ajax beat visitors Borac Cacak of Serbia 2-0, with goals coming from Jeffrey Sarpong and Luis Suarez in the 71st and 90th minutes respectively.

Ajax, which routed Borac in Cacak two weeks ago by 4-1, comfortably went through with the score of 6-1 on aggregate.

In Heerenveen, the hosts dominated the match against Vitorial Setubal of Portugal, building a 3-0 lead in the first half. Heerenveen, which finished with a 1-1 draw in Setubal, completed a 5-2 victory in the end, and marched onto the group stage with 6-3 on aggregate.

Twente, which were defeated away by Rennes of France 1-2 in the first leg, was able to manage a 1-0 victory. With both teams finishing 2-2 on aggregate, the Dutch were luckily through thanks to its away goal.

Feyenoord, losers at home to Kalmar of Sweden in the first leg, emerged 2-1 winners over the Swedish hosts. As Feyenoord scored more away goals, they eliminated Kalmar and earned the ticket to the group stage.

Draws for the group stage will be made in Nyon, France, next Tuesday.
