Our prediction for this Europa Conference League match:
Ordabasy play host to Legia at Stadion Kazhymukan Munaitpasov in the first leg of the Conference League second qualifying round. The Kazakhstan Premier League is in a full swing, with Ordabasy leading the chase for the title. Given their fine form in the national championship, we predict that the hosts are going to grab something from Thursday’s encounter. A man to watch in the home team will be experienced midfielder Askhat Tagybergen, who has already netted nine goals so far this term.
The Wojskowi, on the other hand, kicked off the new domestic campaign in style, with the team rolling over LSK Lodz 3-0 and given their attacking potential, both teams to score betting option should be considered. Ordabasy defenders should have Tomas Pekhart at bay as the 34-year-old forward scored a hat-trick at the weekend. Both Kapustka and Nawrocki should miss out through injuries.
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.
