Our prediction for this Europa League match:
After sharing the spoils with Napoli in their opener, Leicester City will be looking to record their first win in the 2021/2022 Europa League campaign when they take on Legia in Warsaw on Thursday evening. The Foxes head into the match following a 2-2 draw with Burnley, where Jamie Vardy scored a brace. The experienced attacker is enjoying yet another successful season, but he will be rested in the Europa League game.
Kelechi Iheanacho returns to the starting XI, as well as summer signing Patson Daka, while Wilfried Ndidi is out of contention through suspension. Both Fofana and Justin remain in the recovery room. Legia, on the other hand, did well to beat Spartak Moscow on the road in their Group C opener. Since the Poles are tough to beat at home, we are tempted to put our money on draw. Midfielder Bartosz Kapustka remains on the sidelines with injury for the visitors.
