UEL: Polish Sides End First Leg with Victories

GLIWICE, Poland. July 25 (PSN) – Piast Gliwice, Legia Warsaw, and Lechia Gdansk each took part of the first leg of the second round of UEFA Europa League qualifiers on Thursday.

After a draw and a defeat with BATE Borisov in UEFA Champions League qualifying, Piast Gliwice finally won their first ever game in European competition. The Polish Champions defeated Riga FC 3:2, having to make a comeback after the half to salvage the game. Jakub Czerwinski and Jorge Felix scored the goals for the Gliwice side, while Roman Debelka and an own goal of Uros Koruna were who fired for the Latvian club. The second leg will be played on August 1 in Riga.

Legia Warsaw noted a modest 1:0 win over Finnish side Kuopion Palloseura. The goal for Poland’s runners-up was scored by Mateusz Wieteska at the early stage of the game and Kuopion did little to threaten the oppositions goal, while Legia felt uninspired going forward themselves.
