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.
