Legia Warszawa to build on a fine away draw

The polish champions Legia Warszawa are the most successful club in Poland. As an illustration, they have won the Ekstrakkasa league 15 and the Polish Cup 19 times. As for Europe, they are looking for their first appearance in the group stages of a European competition since 2016-17. Legia are playing in the Europa League after being eliminated from the Champions League by Dinamo Zagreb. 

The first leg of this tie saw a very crazy first half in which all four goals were scored. In effect, Legia took the lead twice against the run of play. Coach Michniewicz had a clear tactic to implement, defend deep and counter. Coupled with some great saves by goalkeeper Boruc, Legia came back from Prague with a very healthy result for them. 

Legia Key Points 

  • Legia failed to score in one of their last ten matches 
  • The Militarians won five of their last ten matches 
  • Michniewicz’s team lost one of their last ten home games 

Slavia Prague are keen to make up for the lost chance in the first leg

Czech champions Slavia Prague advanced to the Europa League final qualification round after being eliminated from the Champions League by Midtjylland. However, Slavia couldn’t take advantage of playing at home in the first leg and now face a tough challenge. In fact, Slavia lost their Champions League clash away to Ferencvaros this season which led to their elimination. 

In addition, it is important to note that, that defeat was Slavia’s only away defeat in all competitions since December 2020. But, coach Trpisovsky needs to make some changes to his team’s tactics. Especially in defense where the Red and Whites were so vulnerable against Legia’s counterattacks. Thus there needs to be a more balanced approach to deny the visitors any goal chances.

Slavia key points

  • Slavia won three of their last five away matches
  • The Red and Whites had five clean sheets in their last ten matches 
  • Trpisovsky’s team scored in nine of their last ten matches 

Legia Warszawa vs Slavia Prague prediction 

These teams aim for playing in the group stages of the European competitions every season. In that way, they get more revenues and hence improve the budget that allows them to grow. 

In that sense, the importance of this match lies in the fact that the group stage participation generates 3.630.000m Euros. So we expect a very fierce battle to advance from this tie since both teams need a win by any score. 

In any case, Slavia are the favorites to qualify with the bookies. Vbet have odds of 1.62 for that cause. In addition, the Czechs are favorites to win the match as well with odds of 2.15. The least risky bet looks at the double chance and the total goals scored combo at Vbet.
