Europa League Football Prediction – Legia Warsaw vs Leicester City

  • Legia Warszawa came from behind to defeat Spartak Moscow 1-0 in their Europa League debut in Russia. That result sparked a three-game winning streak, which ended with a loss at the weekend.
  • Although a 2-2 draw with Napoli is not a bad result, Leicester led  the match 2-0 till the second half. But Leicester have only won one of their last five games, and that was against a lower-tier opponent.
  • On paper, Leicester have win our favor, but their recent results indicate that they may struggle once again here.

Legia’s promising start to the season may come to an end soon. They clearly have defensive issues and face a Leicester side with significant squad depth.

Even if ageless striker Jamie Vardy takes a well-deserved rest, the visitors have a plethora of attacking options. So they, with a flash of inspiration, can take the game away from the hosts.

Our Prediction: Legia Warsaw 1-2 Leicester City
