Legia Warsaw took a step closer to securing the Ekstraklasa title after coming from behind to draw 1-1 at Widzew Lodz on Friday.

Lukasz Broz scored a first-half penalty to put the home side 1-0 ahead at Stadion Widzewa, but Marek Saganowski’s strike after the break sent the visitors home with a vital point.

The capital city club must now take four points from their two remaining league games to secure the title, although with a superior goal difference to nearest rivals Lech Poznan a single win should prove enough.

Legia did themselves no favours early in the contest, when the away side’s defence brought down Bartlomiej Pawlowski inside the area to gift Widzew a spot kick on 18 minutes.

Broz made no mistake, netting his seventh goal of the season and giving the home fans hope of an upset win.

Saganowski got Legia back on level terms when he headed home from a free-kick in the 56th minute, before missing a good chance to claim all three points late in the second term.

Legia are six points clear of second-placed Lech Poznan, who have three games left to play.
