Europa League: FK Kukësi 1-2 Legia (match abandoned)
In the third qualifying round (UEFA Europa League) Legia Warsaw was playing the first leg against Albanian FK Kukësi in Tirana on Thursday evening. While Warsaw footballers were leading 2-1, the referee had to suspend the match. Everything due to the situation that happened on the pitch. One of FK Kukësi’s supporters threw something (probably a stone) from the stands towards the field. The object hit Ondrej Duda’s head, who got hurt.
Legia will probably win this game by a 3-0 default and there will be no second leg in the capital of Poland.
The first goal was struck in the 28th minute by Nemanja Nikolić. He received a nice pass from one of his colleagues and despite some football fight with FK Kukësi’ defender he managed to put the football in the back of Dumitru Stajila’s net. The first half finished with Legia’s 1-0 leading.
The beginning of the second half began in a tremendous way for FK Kukësi’ players. After a corner kick they equalised thanks to Felipe Moreira Santos’s header. However, two minutes later the club from Poland was leading again. Jakub Rzeźniczak kicked the ball, it bounced off the post and found its way to rivals’ net.
