Our prediction for this Europa League match:
Legia and Napoli take on each other at Stadion Wojska Polskiego in what is expected to be an interesting Europa League clash. Napoli desperately needed a win against Legia at Stadio Diego Armando Maradona two weeks ago, and they managed to get one. The Neapolitans have been impressive in the Serie A this season as well, and given their attacking potential, away win should be considered. All Manolas, Ounas, and Malcuit should miss out with injuries, while Victor Osimhen is unlikely to be risked against Legia.
The Polish outfit, on the other hand, aim to retain top position in Group C. Legia are a real force to be reckoned with at home, and seeing that Napoli are fully focused on winning Scudetto, we are tempted to put our money on draw. All Abu Hanna, Boruc, Holownia, Kapustka, and Pekhart should miss out with injuries for the home side.

Bartosz Kapustka is a Poland international who plays for Freiburg on loan in Bundesliga. Kapustka was born in Tarnow (Poland) on December 23, 1996 and he began his youth career for his hometown club Tarnovia Tarnow.

Kapustka did not see any game action for Leicester City in the 2016/2017 Premier League campaign and that is the main reason why he decided to sign a loan deal with Bundesliga side Freiburg on July 14, 2017.
