UEL: Convincing Win for Lech in Stockholm, Piast Also Advance

STOCKHOLM, Sweden. September 17 (PSN) – Lech Poznan and Piast Gliwice took part in the second round of UEFA Europa League qualifiers on Wednesday and Thursday.

In their away match, Lech Poznan won 3:0 in Stockholm against Hammarby IF.

Goals for the Ekstraklasa vice-champions were scored by Pedro Tiba, Jakub Kaminski and Filip Marchwinski. Both Kaminski and Marchwinski fired a goal each in the last minutes of the game just before the final whistle.

The Swedes had also weakened themselves in the 63rd minute, having to play a man down after Jeppe Andersen was shown a red card. This win is historical for Lech, who are the first Polish team to eliminate a Swedish club in Europe since the 2001/02 season, which last saw Legia Warsaw defeat IF Elfsborg.

Lech now advance to the third round qualifying round and will play Apollon FC  from Cyprus. The third round match is scheduled to be played on September 24.
