UEL: Lech and Arka Hold Off Europa Sides

GDYNIA, Poland. July 27 (PSN) – Both Lech Poznan and Arka Gydnia took part of the first leg of the third round of UEFA Europa League qualifiers on Thursday.

Lech Poznan played to a 0:0 draw at FC Utrecht. It is worth pointing out that the Polish team was the more dominant side with far more shooting situations, but the team from Wielkopolska failed to capitalize on their situations. The kolejorz will now have the edge in home advantage when they return to Poznan next week for the second leg.
