UEL: Jagiellonia and Lech Move on, Gornik Fall Behind

POZNAN, Poland. August 2 (PSN) – Jagiellonia Bialystok, Lech Poznan and Gornik Zabrze each took part of the second leg of the second round of UEFA Europa League qualifiers on Thursday.

Lech Poznan won at home, but it took Ivan Durdevic’s team to slug through extra time in order to defeat Shakhtyor Soligorsk 3:1. After drawing 1:1 in Belarus last week, the Kolejorz needed a win at home in order to advance. After 90 minutes of unconvincing play from both teams, who were tied 1:1, Lech eventually woke up in extra time and ended things with a hattrick by Danish striker Christian Gytkjaer. The Belarussian outfit had also accumulated three red cards in extra time. Lech will now play Belgian side KRC Genk in the third round on August 9 and 16.

After a thrilling match in Portugal, Jagiellonia Białystok drew Rio Ave FC 4:4 and advanced to the next round on a 5:4 aggregate score. The game was largely back and forth, with Jagiellonia who opened the floodgates with a Cillian Sheridan goal in the 6th minute. However, Rio Ave afterwards were able to equalize and cause the Poles further stress by doubling their scoreline. Ireneusz Mamrot’s team weren’t willing to go down easily and continued to push on the counter attack which saw them level the score after continued persistence. The Polish vice-champions will now play KAA Gent in the next round.
