First up Europa win for Legia in Moscow

·1-min read

Lirim Kastrati has scored in stoppage time to give Legia Warsaw a 1-0 win at Spartak Moscow in the opening game of this season's Europa League group stage.

Spartak created far more chances than the Polish visitors but couldn't get past Legia's 41-year-old goalkeeper Artur Boruc.

Legia took full advantage to snatch three points with a 91st-minute goal from substitute Lirim Kastrati off a cross from Ernest Muci.

Leicester and Napoli round out Group C and play on Thursday in one of the 15 other Europa matches on Thursday.

Legia and Spartak played a day ahead of the week's other Europa League games to avoid a clash with Spartak's cross-city rival Lokomotiv Moscow, who host Marseille.
