UEL: Draw in Warsaw Still Leaves Legia with Hope

WARSAW, Poland. February 16 (PSN) – Legia Warsaw in their first encounter of the round of 32 in the UEFA Europa League drew 0:0 with Ajax Amsterdam.

Despite the lack of goals, the game was played at an impressive level and showed just how much the Polish capital club has improved since the last time Ajax visited Warsaw.

The return leg will take place on February 23 in Amsterdam.

Unfortunately, the Legion will have to play Ajax in the next leg without key player Miroslav Radovic, who earned another yellow in UEFA competition and will sit out of the next game.

“Miro Radovic being absent in Amsterdam is certainly going to be a problem. The loss of each player by such a basic consequence is never pleasant. I have already spoken to Radovic after the game, and he told me he still hopes to continue to play in the UEFA Europa League. He will support us from the stands” Legia head coach Jacek Magiera said about the yellow situation after the game.
