Paris - UEFA have awarded Polish side Legia Warsaw a 3-0 win
in their Europa League third qualifying round, first-leg tie against Kukes
after trouble marred last week's match in Albania.
The match last Thursday was abandoned with Legia leading 2-1
after the visitors' Slovakian midfielder Ondrej Duda appeared to be struck in
the head by a stone thrown from the stands.

Legia said that Duda was left with "a one-inch
hole" in his head, although he was back on his feet again a few minutes
after the incident.
Kukes were also ordered to play their next two European home
games behind closed doors and were fined 70,000 euros ($76,793, 49,268) for the
setting off of fireworks and throwing of objects, crowd disturbances and the
displaying of an illicit banner.
The second leg will go ahead as planned on Thursday.For
