UEL: Legia Eliminated from Europe by Moldova’s Sheriff Tiraspol

TIRASPOL, Moldova. August 24 (PSN) – Legia Warsaw took part of the second leg of the fourth round of UEFA Europa League qualifiers on Thursday and drew 0:0 thus effectively knocking them out of Europe.

Final score: Sheriff – Legia 0:0

After drawing 1:1 with Sheriff Tiraspol in the first leg at home, Legia Warsaw had to no choice but to win at all costs in Moldova in order to advance to the UEFA Europa League group stage. Unfortunately, that didn’t happen with neither Legia nor Sheriff scoring.

Legia once again played very passively and provided little to no attacking threat against the Moldovian side. A red card 38 minutes into the game didn’t help as well, with the Legion weakened after centre back Michal Pazdan picked up two yellow cards.

With the game in Tiraspol ending as a goalless draw, it was Sheriff who advances onto the group stage due to their lone away goal in Warsaw. While Legia, who was the last remaining Polish club in Europe, will have to travel back home and reassess their situation.
