Legia Warsaw appeals against punishment for fielding banned player vs Celtic in Champs League
NYON, Switzerland - Legia Warsaw has appealed to UEFA against losing a place in the Champions League qualifying playoff round for fielding an ineligible player against Celtic.
UEFA says in a statement released on Tuesday that the case will be heard on Wednesday.
Legia beat Celtic 6-1 on aggregate in the third qualifying round but was discovered to have played Bartosz Bereszynski as a substitute in the second leg, even though he hadn't completed a suspension.
The second leg, which Legia won 2-0 in Edinburgh, was declared a walkover 3-0 victory to Celtic, which advanced on away goals, at 4-4 on aggregate.
