Legia Warszawa missed two penalties but still overwhelmed a ten-man Celtic FC 4-1 in their UEFA Champions League third qualifying round first leg.

The Hoops drew first blood in the contest through Callum McGregor, but Miroslav Radović's double and an Efe Ambrose red card had Ronny Deila's side reeling at half-time. Any relief Celtic felt at seeing Ivica Vrdoljak miss a penalty on the hour mark was extinguished by late goals for Michał Żyro and Jakub Kosecki, which sandwiched another squandered Vrdoljak spot kick in a manic finish.
