There were several blowouts to close out the Champions League third round today as notable names Zenit St. Petersburg, PSV Eindhoven and Celtic all advanced into the playoff round.
Zenit St. Petersburg hammered FC Nordsjaelland 5-0 to advance 6-0 on aggregate over FC Nordsjaelland. Roman Shirokov had a brace for Zenit while Hulk, Anderi Arshavin and Miguel Danny all pitched in goals as well.
Celtic weren't very impressive on the road against Elfsborg setting for a scoreless draw, but it was enough to move them into the next round. Viktoria Plzen advanced as well with the somewhat ridiculous aggregate scoreline of 10-2 over Estonian side Nomme Kalju.
Just a reminder, all advancing teams enter a playoff round that will either send them on to the group stages of the Champions League or the Europa League. All teams that lose in this round of the tournament will move to a Europa League playoff round.
