Legia Warsaw advanced to the third round of the Champions League qualifiers, defeating Flora Tall 1-0 (0-0). The Polish team won the first match 2-1 at home.
The Legionnaires had to deal with Bardos Kapustka scoring a goal in the first leg, but the ligaments in his knee were severed. The Warsaw midfielder has already undergone surgery in Berlin and has been facing rehab for several months now. Juice was appointed to replace him, who showed his good side in Saturday’s match with Visa Pyog.
Legia, defending a goal advantage in Tallinn, did not rush to decisive attacks. The game was even, but initially both sides could not use a good scoring opportunity.
Hosts can take the lead in the 25th minute. Konstantin Vasiljev Martin gave Miller a superb pass, crossed the cross into the goal area, and Matus Viteska deflected a corner so that Rano Chapinen blocked a shot.
Four minutes later, Vitezka again saved the Polish champions from losing a goal. This time Sergei Zhenzov passed from the right side of the penalty area, but Legia’s stopwatch crossed the path of the ball.
Legia responded in a moment with a dangerous but inaccurate shot from Mahir Emreli. From that moment on, the Versovians began to play the ball better, and their attacks became more and more dangerous. In the 43rd minute, Rafael Lopez crossed the post after kicking a corner.
After the break, Legia gave the rivals the lead. Goalkeeper Arthur Boruk was annoyed by the passive attitude of some of his colleagues. In the 66th minute, Genjov threw the ball into the net, but the goal was not recognized.
However, Legia’s response was specific. Josip Juranovic sent a superb pass into the box, where Rafael Lopez scored from a few meters.
Taking the lead means that Legia can still play quietly. In the 78th minute, Lukinhas may have increased the score, but his shot was blocked. The Brazilian, who already had extra time, got another chance. This time, after his shot was over, the ball bounced off the post.
Legia’s next rival, Dynamo Zagreb, defeated Omonia Nicosia 2-0, 1-0 in the Champions League group stage.
To advance to the group stage, the Warsaw team must eliminate this and the next rival. The Legionnaires already have the right to play in the group stage of the conference league.
