Jakub Kosecki cancelled out Federico Piovaccari's opening strike as Legia Warszawa left Romania with an away goal to their name from their UEFA Champions League play-off first leg against FC Steaua București.

Piovaccari delighted a packed Stadionul Naţional with a neat finish over the advancing Dušan Kuciak 11 minutes before half-time. Yet Legia, whose only previous group stage appearance was in 1995/96, gained a slight advantage going into next Tuesday's return in the Polish capital when Kosecki swept in Miroslav Radović's cross.
