A Europa League match between Polish side Legia Warsaw and Kukesi in Albania had to be abandoned last night after a stone thrown from the crowd hit midfielder Ondrej Duda.

The crowd trouble started after Legia Warsaw took a 2-1 lead, and the match was abandoned after a bloodied Duda was stretchered off the pitch in a neck brace. 

Police were seen entering the crowd and wielding batons as tensions began to rise, while flares were let off in other sections of the ground. Duda has tweeted this morning that he is ok after having his head bandaged up, and was ready to return to the pitch last night before the game was abandoned for good.

Legia Warsaw tweeted during the game: "The game in Tirana is suspended. Ondrej Duda was hit with a stone by Kukesi fans..."

They later added: 'Official: the FK Kukesi - Legia game is ended. It will be probably declared forfeit, as Duda was hit with a stone by Albanian fans.'

UEFA are yet to make an official statement on the match as yet, however Legia Warsaw uploaded a video of a UEFA delegate holding discussions with officials over his decision to call time on the game.

The match is likely to be forfeited with Legia Warsaw handed the result as they go in search of qualification for the Europa League proper, although that hasn't been confirmed as yet.

Do you think the fan who threw the stone should face criminal action?
