    Legia Warsaw 1-0 Linfield

    Linfield bow out of the Champions League, but their European adventure will continue in the Europa League.

    And the Blues may be joined in the second qualifying round by Irish Premiership rivals Glentoran and Coleraine, both of whom contest their preliminary round games on Thursday.

    Glentoran host HB Torshavn (19:00 BST) while Coleraine entertain La Fiorita (19:30 BST).

    We'll be back with live streams and live text commentary on both of those games. We hope to see you again then!


    Legia Warsaw 1-0 Linfield

    It's all over!

    Jose Kante's late strike proves enough to send Legia Warsaw into the second round of the Champions League qualifiers.

    Linfield, who had Kirk Millar sent off, battled hard all evening but it wasn't to be for the Irish Premiership champions as they fall into the Europa League qualifiers.

    It's a disappointing result for David Healy's men but the Blues can draw encouragement from the manner in which they conducted their business this evening.

    Legia will face either Ararat (Armenia) or Omonia (Cyprus) in the next round while Linfield can look forward to a second-round qualifier in the Europa League.

  3. Post update

    Legia Warsaw 1-0 Linfield

    Manzinga, who has certainly made an impact since coming on, wins a free-kick in a dangerous position.

    He takes it and strikes the wall, but it comes out to Mulgrew. His drive takes a deflection and bounces through to Boruc!

  4. Kante killer for Linfield

    Legia Warsaw 1-0 Linfield

    Linfield almost snatch an equaliser as Manzinga right-footed drive strikes the upright!

    Great effort from the Frenchman - the closest Linfield have come this evening.


    Legia Warsaw 1-0 Linfield

    Rosolek comes close to doubling Legia's lead but his clipped effort comes back off the woodwork!

    Let-off for Linfield. That would have been game, set and match.


    Legia Warsaw 1-0 Linfield

    Goalscorer Kante gets himself a booking for a foul on Blues skipper Mulgrew.


    Legia Warsaw 1-0 Linfield

    Navid Nasseri comes on for Niall Quinn in Linfield's third change of the evening.

  9. GOAL

    Legia Warsaw 1-0 Linfield

    Substitute Jose Kante breaks the deadlock with nine minutes remaining!

    The forward's controls Gvilia's pass brilliantly as he slips past Fallon before firing a powerful shot into Johns' left-hand bottom corner.

    There was nothing the Linfield stopper could do about that one.

    It's heartbreaking for the away side, but it's not over yet!

    Quote Message: It was a challenge Millar didn't have to make. The Legia player bought it but Millar can have no complaints and he'll be disappointed.

    Legia Warsaw 0-0 Linfield

    Conor Pepper replaces Bastien Hery.

    12 minutes remaining.


    Legia Warsaw 0-0 Linfield

    Christy Manzinga replaces Lavery, who put in a massive shift this evening.

    Gvilia's free-kick following Millar's foul is up and over the wall but straight down Johns' throat.

  13. RED CARD

    Legia Warsaw 0-0 Linfield

    Linfield are down to 10 men as Millar picks up his second yellow for a foul on Luquinhas.

    It definitely looked like a tired attempt at a tackle, similar to Lavery a couple of minutes ago.

    That won't make things any easier for the Irish Premiership champions.


    Legia Warsaw 0-0 Linfield

    Lavery picks up a yellow card after fouling Wieteska.

  15. Post update

    Legia Warsaw 0-0 Linfield

    Rosolek's shot deflects off Clarke and Johns makes the save. The Legia forward wanted handball but the Linfield defender's arms were by his side at the time of the shot.


    Legia Warsaw 0-0 Linfield

    Jose Kante comes to replace Pekhart.

  17. Game taking a toll on Blues

    Legia Warsaw 0-0 Linfield

    Quote Message: Linfield have dealt well with set-pieces although the superior fitness levels of Legia Warsaw are beginning to tell and that's a massive part of the game. Linfield just have to frustrate them as much as they can.
  18. Post update

    Legia Warsaw 0-0 Linfield

    Fallon tries his luck from all of 30 yards - Boruc has no problem in gathering that one.

  19. Post update

    Legia Warsaw 0-0 Linfield

    Linfield charge down another shot - this time it's Larkin. Again, Linfield deal with the corner competently before Wieteska heads wide when he really should have made Johns work.

    Slowly but surely, it looks as though the home side are starting to move it up a gear.

  20. OVER!

    Legia Warsaw 0-0 Linfield

    Mladenovic bursts through the Linfield defence but Stafford just about gets a toe on the ball and it flies over for a corner, which comes to nothing.

    Mladenovic has been Legia's most effective outlet without question.
