VIDEO: Legia Warsaw fans display striking banner ahead of Champions League game to commemorate Warsaw Uprising

Legia Warsaw saw their Champions League dream come to an and as Polish side got eliminated by Astana despite winning 1-0 on Wednesday. The Kazakhstan champions triumphed 3-1 in the first leg which got them through to the next round.

The result of last night’s game was shadowed by Legia fans who displayed a provocative banner to mark the anniversary of the Warsaw Uprising in 1944.

Fans displayed a banner depicting a German soldier holding a gun to a child’s head with the words: “During the Warsaw Uprising Germans killed 160,000 people. Thousands of them were children.”

The club also held a minute of silence prior to kick-off, but it is the banner that is almost certain to draw an investigation by UEFA.
