Our prediction for this Europa Conference League match:
Legia and Austria Vienna will lock horns at Stadion Wojska Polskiego in what is expected to be one of the most exciting games of Thursday’s program. Legia set up a meeting with Austria by beating Ordabasy of Kazakhstan in the double-header and they must be high on confidence following a 3-0 win over Ruch Chorzow in the national championship. There are no fresh injury worries in the home team ahead of the first leg.
The Violets, meanwhile, booked their place in round 3 by beating Borac Banja Luka, but Legia will surely pose a much bigger threat for the Austrian outfit than their previous rivals. The Poles are a real force to be reckoned with at home and we predict that they are going to showcase their worth on the field. As for the away team, all El Sheiwi, Raguz, and Wustinger have been struggling with injuries of late.
Highlighted Team (Legia):
Legia is a football club based in Warsaw and it is one of the most successful sides in Polish history. The Militarians – as they are commonly referred to in Poland – have won 11 Ekstraklasa Championship title, while they also hold the record-18 Polish Cup trophies and four Polish SuperCup matches.
Founded as the main official football club of the Polish Army, Legia Warsaw are playing theirhome matches at the Polish Army Stadium which can accommodate 31,000 people. Legia have endured mixed fortunes at the international scene with the Polish giants regularly participating in Europa League, with four group inclusions over the last six years. The Militarians headed into the 2016-17 season feeling buoyed and motivated having succeeded in ending the 20-year Champions League wait, becoming the first Polish team to take part in Europe’s elite competition over the last two decades.
The 3-1 aggregate playoff victory over Irish Dundalk earned them a place in the final showpiece with Legia being thrown into a heavy mix with the likes of Sporting CP, Borussia Dortmund and European champions Real Madrid.
