UEL: Legia Avoid Polish Crumble in Europe

WARSAW, Poland. Aug 1 (PSN) – Piast Gliwice, Legia Warsaw, and Lechia Gdansk each took part of the second leg of the second round of UEFA Europa League qualifiers on Thursday.

Legia Warsaw was the only Polish club that avoided crashing out of Europe, seeing their way to the next round after a goalless draw in Finland. Legia had an opportunity to score in the 86th minute with a penalty shot, but Sandro Kulenovic failed to convert. However, thanks to Legia’s first leg 1:0 at home, they still progress to the next round where they will face Greek outfit Atromitos FC.

Piast Gliwice failed to up their game in Latvia and lost 1:2 to Riga FC. After conceding two goals at home in the first leg, Piast had to outscore Riga in the second leg in order to advance to the next round of the competition. Things did look promising at first, with Jorge Felix scoring early for the Gliwice club, but the Latvian team responded not long after a goal from Armands Petersons and then later Kamil Bilinski. This effectively saw the Polish champions knocked out of Europe, while Riga will play HJK from Finland in the third round.
