UEFA dismisses Legia Warsaw’s appeal, to host Real Madrid behind closed doors


Legia Warsaw fans had been found guilty of crowd disturbances, setting off fireworks, throwing objects and racist behaviour during their Champions League defeat to Borussia Dortmund last month.
The Polish club, who were found guilty of insufficient organisation and causing stairways to be blocked, apologised after a number of fans showered stewards with pepper spray as they attempted to break through barriers to reach their Dortmund counterparts, though they denied that racist chanting had occurred.


Legia appealed against the sentence but UEFA announced on Wednesday that their initial sanctions, which also included an €80,000 fine, will be upheld.

Legia, who appointed Jacek Magiera as their new head coach last month after Besnik Hasi stepped down by mutual consent, will serve their stadium ban against the Champions League holders on November 2.
