Legia Warsaw supporters responded with a tifo and flare display to UEFA’s order to close the section housing their Ultras for their Champions League clash play-off with Steaua Bucharest. The Polish champions were fined €30,000 for the “racist behaviour” of fans during the previous round.

UEFA punished Warsaw because of incidents during the Champions League tie with The New Saints in the last round and ordered a partial stadium closure to the north stand of their Stadion Wojska Polskiego.

Legia were aiming to become the first Polish club in 17 years to compete in the Champions League group stages but were eliminated on away goals.

Two years ago, fans unveiled a banner reading “Jihad Legia” during a game against Hapoel Tel Aviv of Israel costing the club a €10,000 fine.
