FC Steaua Bucureşti booked their place in the UEFA Champions League group stage for the first time since 2008/09 as a 2-2 draw in Poland ensured they edged out Legia Warszawa on the away-goals rule.

After a 1-1 draw in Romania last week, early goals in quick succession from Nicolae Stanciu and Federico Piovaccari at the Stadion Wojska Polskiego swung the tie decisively in Steaua's favour. Jan Urban's hosts replied through Miroslav Radović and Jakub Rzeźniczak but were unable to complete a comeback, meaning the Romanian champions head into Thursday's draw in Monaco.

    Legia's goalkeeper advances from his area in an attempt to get to the ball before Federico Piovaccari but the Italian gets there first and is fouled. There were defenders covering, so just a yellow card.
