Legia run ten-man Celtic ragged

Legia Warszawa 4-1 Celtic FC
The Polish champions failed to convert two penalties, but Miroslav Radović's first-half double helped them see off ten-man Celtic.

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.

McGregor's second goal in three games was rifled into the top-right corner from outside the box to hand the Hoops an eighth-minute lead. However, in Radović Legia also had a man enjoying a purple patch. The Serbian beat Fraser Forster low at his near post to level before turning the tables entirely by tucking away Michal Kucharczyk's flick-on. It was the striker's second double in as many matches and his fifth of the campaign so far.

Last man Ambrose was dismissed for preventing a goalscoring opportunity as Celtic's misery was compounded before the break, and their luck was not to change – despite Vrdoljak's travails from the penalty spot.

Radović turned provider for Żyro's 84th-minute header, before Łukasz Broź played in Kosecki to giftwrap the win and give Legia a three-goal advantage to defend in Scotland next Wednesday.
