The Clarets will face either Everton or Sarajevo in the final of the Generali Cee Cup after holding their nerve to win a penalty shoot-out in their last-four clash.
After a 1-1 draw against Turkish side Altinordu in Prague, Danny Cadamarteri’s side successfully converted all four of their spot-kicks through Dylon Allan-Meredith, Jordan Cropper, Terry Mupariwa and Kawzinkosi Mpofu (above) to go through to Wednesday’s final.
Having won both of their group games to reach the semi-finals, the Clarets again took the initiative and an early lead when Oliver Younger headed a free-kick across goal for striker Michael Fowler to tap in his second goal of the tournament.
The advantage lasted until the 68th-minute when Altinordu also scored from a set-piece to level the scores.
Berkay Gormez curled in a fine long-range effort to leave the sides dead-locked and facing a shoot-out after 90 minutes.
And it was the Clarets who rose to the challenge, boasting a 100 per cent record from the spot as only Altinordu’s opening effort was converted.
Adam Bruce made one excellent save to keep out the Turks’ second attempt, leaving left-back Mpofu to score the fourth and decisive penalty and seal Burnley’s place in the final of the under-19 competition.
Burnley: Bruce, Egan, Mpofu, Yari, Wilson, Younger, Jumeau, Layton, McNeil, Woods, Fowler. Substitutes: Wusiewicz, Cropper, Allan-Meredith, Taylor, Kershaw, Moss, Samms, Thomas, Mupariwa.
