Former Champions League winner Borussia Dortmund suffered its worst ever European loss today when it was dumped out of the UEFA Cup in a 4-0 loss at French club Sochaux. The German heavyweight lost 6-2 on aggregate and joined former UEFA Cup champions Schalke 04 and Feyenoord in shock exits. Dortmund, which lost the UEFA Cup final to Feyenoord two years ago, never recovered from the fifth minute expulsion of Salvatore Gambino. Schalke lost 3-1 on penalties at Danish club Brondby, while Feyenoord, champion in 2002 and 1974, failed to overcome its poor first leg performance at provincial Czech club FK Teplice to lose 3-1 on aggregate. In another shock result, Poland's Dyskobolia Grodzisk Groclin ousted a Manchester City side led by former England manager Kevin Keegan on the away goals rule. Twenty-three matches were scheduled for Thursday. Teams comfortably advancing to the third round were Italy's Parma, which beat Austria Salzburg 5-0 for a 9-0 aggregate win, and Turkey's Gaziantepspor, which won 3-1 at ten-man Lens to advance 6-1 overall. Antonio Cassano was again the hero for Roma, scoring a late equalizer in a 1-1 tie at Hadjuk Split to send the Italians into the third round on a 2-1 aggregate. Cassano scored the winner in the 1-0 first leg win. (AP)
