Our prediction for this Europa League match:
After suffering a shocking 2-0 loss to Omonia in the Champions League qualifiers, Legia will be aiming to kick off their Europa League campaign in great manner when they host Drita at their Stadion Wojska Polskiego. Legia were eliminated by Rangers in the Europa League qualifiers last season, and, no doubt, they are eager to make amends for the unsuccessful campaign. Experienced Czech attacker Tomas Pekhart, who has been scoring goals for fun in the national championship, will be the man to watch in the home team.
Drita, on the other hand, proved their worth in a 2-0 win over Sileks. The Kosovars aim to claim yet another major scalp, but given the number of high-profile players in the home team, we predict that the visitors are going to return home empty-handed from the trip to Warsaw. The game will be played behind closed doors due to the fierce of coronavirus spread.
