MOSCOW — Legia Warsaw scored in a stoppage time to beat Spartak Moscow 1-0 in Wednesday’s opening game of this season’s Europa League group stage.
Spartak created many more chances than Polish visitors but failed to resolve Legia’s 41-year-old goalkeeper, Artur Boruc.
Legia took full advantage of Ernest Muci’s midfielder to grab the three points with a 91st minute goal from substitute Lirim Kastrati.
Leicester and Napoli will complete Group C and play on Thursday.
Legia and Spartak played the day before the other Europa League games of the week to avoid a clash with Spartak’s inter-city rival Lokomotiv Moscow, which hosted Marseille on Thursday.
