Everton thus reached the Europa League play-off round with a 2-0 aggregate win over MFK Ružomberok. The Slovak team would have to score for three times to qualify.

The first goal in the previous match was scored by Everton’s captain Leighton Baines who, according to several British media outlets, saved the match from ending in a draw. It was his first goal for Everton in 19 games.
