Legia – Leicester Match Preview

  • Legia Warsaw must bounce back from a domestic home defeat last time out if they wish to remain top of UEFA Europa League (UEL) Group C, as they now face former Premier League (PL) champions Leicester City for the first time. A 1-0 win against Spartak Moscow on UEL matchday one may have come as a surprise to the many who expected that the Polish champions would be battling it out for third place at best, but they proved their battling credentials.
  • The ‘Legionnaires’ won’t make this an easy trip for outside UEL contenders Leicester, given that they’re unbeaten in six of their last eight home games in the UEL proper (W4, D2, L2). Not only that, but the hosts have also managed to keep clean sheets in four of those games, including against recent Champions League semi-finalists, Ajax.
  • Juggling domestic duties with European action has come as a struggle for Leicester as they currently sit in the bottom half of the PL, and blew a two-goal lead against Napoli in their UEL opener (2-2). The visitors will be looking to get back on track here as they hunt both a maiden European title and look to top their UEL group for a second successive campaign.
  • Even though they won their UEL group last term, they managed just one victory from their four away games in the competition proper in 2020/21 (W1, D2, L1). That has generally been the trend across all of Leicester’s European road trips, as they’ve failed to outfox their opponents in ten of 13 overall away games (D3, L7).
  • Players to watch: Legia keeper Artur Boruc is the third-oldest player to feature in the UEL at 41 years old – he saved a penalty vs Leicester whilst at Southampton in 2015/16. Meanwhile, Jamie Vardy scored three times last time out, though once into his own net! Both of his UEL goals have come away from home.
  • Hot stat: Nine of Legia’s last 11 UEL games, group stage to final, produced under 2.5 total goals.
