FC WIT Georgia 1-0 FC Spartak Trnava (agg: 3-2)
WIT added insult to injury as a late Luka Razmadze goal gave them a 3-2 aggregate victory in a tie they were set to win on away goals. Irakli Klimiashvili, Razmadze and Georgi Melkadze helped the home side dominate possession, and the Georgian team had a Vakhtang Kvaratskelia strike ruled out for offside after 15 minutes. The Slovakian visitors were saved by the post after 30 minutes, as Klimiashvili went close from distance, but in the final minute WIT made the breakthrough, with Razmadze crashing home from ten metres after a Melkadze pass.
FC Zestaponi 1-2 Győri ETO FC (agg: 2-3)
Having drawn 1-1 away, Teimuraz Makharadze's Zestaponi controlled the first half, and took the lead six minutes after the interval through Beka Gotsiridze. However, to the dismay of 4,000 home fans, the Georgian Cup holders immediately conceded an equaliser to György Jozsi, and David Pakolicz – who came on for Jozsi after 55 minutes – gave the Hungarian outfit a decisive lead on 67 minutes. Zestaponi were handed a lifeline as Attila Pinter was dismissed ten minutes from time, but a red card for Ucha Lobjanidze saw the numbers evened up before the final whistle.
