UEFA Europa League: Thursday Wrap

Tottenham thumped Hearts 5-0 in the first leg of their Europa League play-off tie at Tynecastle. Bundesliga side Schalke were stunned by HJK Helsinki, slumping to a 2-0 loss in Finland. Teemu Pukki was the hero for the home side with two goals to his name. Fulham eased to a 3-0 win over Juande Ramos' Dnipro. Aaron Hughes broke the deadlock before a brace from Clint Dempsey capped a fine night for Martin Jol's men. Affluent French side PSG romped to a 4-0 hammering of Differdange courtesy of strikes from Kevin Gameiro, Jean-Christophe Bahebeck, Ceara and Jeremy Menez. Rangers looked on course for a promising result at Maribor when Juanma put them in front. But Maribor fought back to win 2-1 as Agim Ibraimi and Etien Velikonja bagged.
