Our prediction for this Champions League match:
David faces Goliath at Pepsi Arena on Wednesday evening. Legia Warsaw take on Spanish giants Real Madrid and it remains to be seen if the rock-bottom team are capable of making a miracle in their fourth group game. Los Blancos rolled over Legia at their Estadio Santiago Bernabeu (5-1) and seeing that Zinedine Zidane are eager to win top position in their group, we predict that the La Liga side will go all guns blazing at the Polish outfit in Wednesday’s football match. Cristiano Ronaldo scored a hat-trick in a 4-1 win over Alaves at the weekend and the Portuguese superstar is likely to prove a handful for the opposition defenders. Legia have been struggling at the back in the 2016/2017 Champions League campaign and it is more than obvious that they are not capable of matching European giants. Taking everything into account, Real Madrid should crush Legia on Wednesday evening.
Highlighted Player (Guilherme):
Brazilian international Guilherme is a midfielder currently plying his trade with Legia Warsaw. The 25-year-old midfielder began his professional career at Braga, where he spent five years before his move to Poland. Brazilian international had made only five appearances for Braga and spent most of his time in Portugal on loans with Vizela nad Gil Vicente.
In 2014 he was loaned to Legia Warsaw, who decided to make the deal permanent a year later. Guilherme settled in quite well with the Militarians, immediately establishing himself as the first-team regular for the Polish giants.
Having played 35 Ekstraklasa games in Legia’s title-winning season, Guilherme played a key role in helping his team end the 20-year absence from the UEFA Champions League. His contribution extended to five goals to the name of this Brazilian, who earned great praise in Poland due to his dedicated and hard-working performances.
Highlighted Team (Real Madrid):
Real Madrid is a Spanish football club based in Madrid. Real Madrid participate in La Liga (Primera Division) and they have won 32 domestic titles. On the other hand, los Blancos have won 13 European Cup titles and that is the main reason why they are considered the biggest football club in the world.
Real Madrid play their home matches at Estadio Santiago Bernabeu and the capacity of the stadium is 84,454. Cristiano Ronaldo is the club’s most successful footballer in the 21st century and the Portuguese superstar has won two Golden Ball awards.
The likes of Alfredo Di Stefano, Zinedine Zidane, Raul Gonzalez Blanco, David Beckham and Iker Casillas are star players who were part of the Estadio Santiago Bernabeu outfit in the past. Real Madrid’s bitterest rivals are Barcelona, but the rivalry between local rivals Atletico Madrid and Real Madrid is big as well. Real Madrid’s home kit is white and, as a result, the team’s nickname is los Blancos (the Whites).
