Coach Marek Gołębiewski has selected the players who will take part in the Thursday duel between Leicester City and Legia Warsaw as part of the fifth round of the Europa League group stage.
The “military” are not doing very well in the domestic backyard lately, but they still have a very good chance of staying in the game in the European backyard in the spring.
Currently, the team from the Mazowieckie voivodship ranks second in the group C table and therefore counts in the competition for promotion to the knockout stage of the Europa League (1st or 2nd place) or the European Conference League (3rd place).
Legia Warsaw may come closer to staying in the current struggle or taking part in the latter if scored in the away match against Leicester City.
The team led by Marek Gołębiewski will not be helped by Artur Boruc, Joel Abu Hanna, Lirim Kastrati, Josué, Rafa Lopes, Maik Nawrocki and, of course, Bartosz Kapustka. Everyone, except for the Portuguese suspended for two yellow cards in the match against Napoli, is struggling with minor or more serious injuries or just returning to sports form after rehabilitation, such as Boruc and Nawrocki.
The start of Thursday’s match is scheduled for 21:00. It will be available on the Viaplay platform.
