TALLINN, Estonia. July 27 (PSN) – Legia Warsaw took part of the second leg of the second round of UEFA Champions League qualifying on Tuesday and won their away game 1:0.
Final score: Flora Tallinn – Legia Warsaw 0:1
The first half was an open game for both sides. The Legionistas created chances after two crosses from the wings, as well as one great individual action from Luquinhas. On the other hand, Flora threatened once after a shot from their best striker Rauno Sappinen.
In the second half, Flora took more of a direct approach and dedicated themselves to go more on the attack. After pressuring Legia’s defense, Flora managed to take the lead, but their goal was called off due to offside.
The only goal of the match was later scored by Rafael Lopes, who found the back of the net in the 67th minute after converting a cross into the penalty box from Josip Juranovic.
With the first leg won 2:1 by the Polish champions in Warsaw, this means that the capital city club have secured their promotion to the next stage of the competition, where they will now face Croatian side GNK Dinamo Zagreb.
It should also be noted that today’s result also means that Legia have guaranteed themselves participation in at least the group stage of the UEFA Europa Conference League.
