Cliftonville will host Glentoran in the Europa League play-off final on Saturday - with a £200,000 qualification windfall awaiting the winners.

Both teams won dramatic semi-finals featuring spectacular goals on Tuesday night.

The Reds beat Coleraine 5-3 after extra-time at Solitude - Bannsiders' striker James McLaughlin ending up on the losing team despite hitting a hat-trick including a stunning overhead kick to put them 3-1 up.

Ryan Curran netted a 97th-minute penalty to level it at 3-3 and force the additional 30 minutes.

Conor McMenamin grabbed a double including the fifth to complete the home side's comeback and seal victory. 

Meanwhile, Glentoran had a 4-2 win against Glenavon in Lurgan where Darren Murray struck twice with fellow strikers Curtis Allen and Robbie McDaid also on target.

Cliftonville have won two previous Europa League play-off finals against the Glens, including last year.
