UEL: Lech and Gornik Pull Through with First Leg Wins

POZNAN, Poland. July 12 (PSN) – Both Lech Poznan and Gornik Zabrze took part of the first leg of the first round of UEFA Europa League qualifiers on Thursday.

Lech Poznan in their first European game of the new season was forced to plat behind closed doors. Despite the lack of fan support, that didn’t stop the Kolejorz from presenting themselves well and getting the job done on a high level. Lech confidently defeated FC Gandzasar Kapan 2:0 with little trouble. Now Ivan Durdević’s team will head to Armenia for the second leg with a two-goal advantage.

Gornik Zabrze had some major problems keeping FC Zaria Balti at bay and faced some close calls that could had seen the game go the other way. Fortunately, playing at home to a sold out stadium helped the team cope with the Moldovan club and pull through with a narrow 1:0 win thanks to a late goal. Now they face the difficult task of playing away in the second leg without their home support.
