Europa vs Legia Warsaw Match Preview
Europa have been rock-solid in front of the home fans lately and they’ve based success across competitions on such a streak, as they now host Legia Warsaw in hope they can keep it up and cause an upset in search of an unlikely ticket to the Europa League’s 2nd Qualifying Round.
Rafael Escobar’s men have struggled for such consistency on the road but still bagged six consecutive wins at Victoria Stadium, including a 4-0 Preliminary Round win over Sant Julia (after suffering a 3-2 loss in the first leg). They’ve been scoring goals on the regular and will now surely hope for another such occasion.
However, Legia Warsaw will be much more of a challenge than they’ve been used to, as they travel to Gibraltar as heavy betting favourites to win. They’ve outclassed Pogon Siedlce (6-0) on Saturday to bounce back after a two-match winless streak and we expect the visitors in great shape.
Wojskowi have indeed seen thrillers go the other way as they suffered a 3-1 loss to RB Bragantino and only held Universitatea Craiova to a 3-3 draw since late June, which could be more worrying. However, Aleksandar Vukovic obviously has more depth in quality and we do see them using it.
We will thus go for the visitors to put on a confident show and we’ll go for Legia Warsaw to win to Nil, which comes at 11/10 with bet365 and has already caught the eye of many in the know.
We thus hope for a one-sided contest but we should still be in for goals, as we now also go for Over 2.5 Goals FT at 1/2 with Novibet as more of a banker bet – with obvious difference in quality and ambition between the sides.
