Portugal - Sporting Lisbon got the victory it deserved this time, defeating Legia Warsaw 2-0 in Group F of the Champions League on Tuesday.
After a heartbreaking defeat at Real Madrid in their first group clash, Sporting rebounded with another good performance and secured the three points at home against the group's weakest team.
The result left Sporting one point behind Real Madrid and Borussia Dortmund, who drew 2-2 in Germany. Legia remains without any points after two games.
Sporting came close to opening the scoring when midfielder Gelson Martins hit the crossbar in front of the goal just before the 20 minute mark.
However, Costa Rican playmaker Bryan Ruiz put the Portuguese side ahead from the far post in the 28th after Legia midfielder Miroslav Radovic failed to fully clear a cross into the area.
Dutch striker Bas Dost continued to impress at his new club by adding to the lead from close range in the 37th after a well-placed cross by captain Adrien Silva.
It was the fifth goal in as many games for Dost since his high-profile signing by Sporting in August. He had scored his first four goals in three Portuguese league appearances after arriving from German club Wolfsburg.
It was the seventh loss in 11 matches for Legia, which opened its Champions League campaign with a 6-0 thrashing by Dortmund. Legia's 39-year-old coach, Jacek Magiera, replaced Besnik Hasi a week ago.
Legia are in the group stage of the Champions League for the first time since the 1995-96 season.
The side next plays at Madrid, while Sporting hosts Dortmund.
