Legia Warsaw vs Europa Match Preview
Legia Warsaw host Europa for their Thursday’s clash in need of a more convincing display to outclass the Gibraltar rivals after a disappointing trip last week, where they were held off and only picked it up in the second half – still failing to convert their chances and snatch an advantage.
Wojskowi have thus failed to find the net for the first time in eight outings, bouncing to the winning ways in a weekend friendly against Radomiak Radom (0-5). They’ve thus rediscovered fine form up front and will now want more of the same, despite much higher stakes at this point.
Europa have shown off their character and had chances to snatch a lead themselves, especially in the first half. However, they’ve felt stale in the final third and failed to really show off in an attempt to build on very solid goalscoring records late in the last and early this term.
Rafael Escobar’s men will thus be disappointed as they have to look for an upset in Warsaw, where Legia saw just two losses in 19 games since September. They will be motivated to do so but we don’t feel they have enough firepower to cause serious damage at Polish Army Stadium.
We will thus back Legia Warsaw to turn another rather narrow contest their way and we’ll go for a Home win to Nil, which comes at 4/7 with Ladbrokes and feels like buying money for old rope at this point.
Carlitos Lopez has been instrumental in the final third and his failure to produce obviously impacted the attacking line in the first leg. We do see his shaking off such a feeling now and we’ll back the Spanish forward to lead the line with a goal anytime at Evens with 22bet.
