UCL: Legia Finish Business with Cork City in Warsaw

WARSAW, Poland. July 17 (PSN) – Legia Warsaw took part of the second leg of the first round of UEFA Champions League qualifying on Tuesday and won its home game.

Final score: Legia Warsaw – Cork City FC 3:0

The Legionistas continued their European campaign after coming off a disappointing 2:3 loss to Arka Gdynia in the Superpuchar Polski. That game best illustrated that the Warsaw team is still far from its best form, even though in the first leg with Cork City the Polish champion won 1:0.

Fortunately, Dean Klaforic’s side saw an improvement in its play as Legia dazzled past Cork City with three goals, two of which came as a result of some great teamwork.

The goals for Legia were scored by Jose Kante, Miroslav Radovic from the penalty spot and Carlitos. Both Kante and Carlitos recorded their first competitive goals for the club.

Legia’s next opponent in the UEFA Champions League second qualifying round is still undecided and will be the victor between FC Spartak Trnava (Slovakia) – HSK Zrinjski Mostar (Bosnia and Herzegovina). In the first match, the Slovak club won 1:0 (0:0), and their second leg will be played tomorrow.

Second round qualifying matches will be held on July 24-25 and July 31-August 1.
