UEFA Europa League: SV Ried 2-1 Legia
In the first leg of the UEFA Europa League third qualifying round Legia Warsaw was defeated 2-1 in Austrian town Ried im Innkreis by footballers of the local team SV. In the first half of the game nothing interesting happened on the pitch. For several minutes Warsaw players seemed to have optical predominance on the field but systematically these were Austrian footballers who started playing better and better. Fairly, first 45 minutes finished with a 0-0 draw.
During the break Janusz Gol was replaced by Marek Saganowski. Nevertheless, this substitution didn’t help Polish team. Footballers from Ried im Innkreis didn’t get scared of Legia’s players at all and began playing more courageous. This attitude was worth doing because seven minutes after the break they scored their first goal. Its author was René Gartler. Ten minutes later Jakub Wawrzyniak had to leave the pitch. He touched the ball with his hand in the penalty area and was punished with the second yellow card by the referee. Simultaneously, Austrian footballers were given a penalty which Anel Hadzić executed properly. SV Ried was leading 2-0.
Legia managed to score its face-saving goal in the 85th minute of the match. Its author was Danijel Ljuboja.
