Former Ghana striker Sadat Bukari hit the target for Romanian side Astra Giurgiu who smoothly edged Slovenians Domžale SP 2-0 to progress to the round of 32 in the Uefa Europa League on Thursday.
The Romanians went into the game at the Arena Na?ional? in Bucure?ti with a 1-0 advantage after winning the reverse fixture last week.
Domžale managed to hold Astra to a goalless draw in the opening 45 minutes but howler by the visitors goalkeeper Nejc Vidmar five minutes into the second half gave Astra the lead.
Sadat Bukari made it 2-0 for the home side just after the hour mark with a close range finish.
The former Heart of Lions striker collected a pass from team-mate Constantin Budescu and sent a neat half-volley into the bottom right corner for his first goal of the season.
Compatriot Seidu Yahaya lasted 72 minutes for Astra.
