Bohemians caused a major upset in their Conference League qualifier after beating Greek side PAOK 2-1 at the Aviva Stadium.

With the away side boasting the likes of former Man United midfielder Shinji Kagawa, Bohs put on a stunning performance to claim the first leg victory.

Scottish winger Ali Coote opened the scoring after a brilliant run from striker Georgie Kelly, who laid it off to his teammate.

With 51 minutes gone, Coote scored once again but this time it was a shot from outside the box that fooled the PAOK keeper.

Bohs have now won each of their three European games at the Aviva Stadium. The second leg will be played in Greece on Thursday, August 12th.

In the same competition, Linfield lost 2-1 at home to Fola Esch from Luxembourg.
