Our prediction for this Champions League match:
A spot in the Champions League third qualifying round will be at stake when Legia and Omonia square off against each other at Stadion Wojska Polskiego. The Polish champions failed to impress in a 1-0 win over Linfield, but thanks to Kante’s late goal they eventually set up a meeting with Omonia in round 2. Legia boss has a number of foreign players to choose from, and we are positive that they will produce a much better display this time out.
Omonia are the dominant force in the Cyprus elite division, but we do not believe that they are capable of matching Legia in Warsaw. Henning Berg’s men were anything but impressive in the 1-0 win over Ararat-Armenia in round 1, which is yet another reason why home win should be considered. This will be the first encounter between the two clubs in European competitions.

The Luxembourg international signed a loan deal with SC Preusen Munster in 2015 and it has to be noted that he played 25 games for the German side in the league. Chris Philipps made his debut for Luxembourg national football team on February 29, 2012 in a 2-1 win over Macedonia. His main position is defensive midfield, but he is used as a centre-back as well.
