The 2021/22 season is a real nightmare for Legia Warsaw. On Sunday, the Polish champions recorded their seventh lost game in a row in dramatic circumstances. Legia was losing 0: 2 to Górnik Zabrze, but in the second half it led to a draw in less than two minutes. However, she returned to Warsaw with nothing, because in the 96th minute Krzysztof Kubica gave Górnik three points. Legia is on the penultimate place in the table and has the same number of points as the last Górnik Łęczna.
Legionnaires do not have time to dwell on that defeat, because they are playing the next match on Thursday in the Europa League. There, despite the last two painful losses to Napoli (0: 3 and 1: 4), Legia still has a chance to leave the group. The Polish team takes second place behind the Italian team. Leicester is third, losing one point to Legia, so Thursday’s match will be extremely important for the promotion to the next phase of the tournament.

Three injured before the game against Leicester
The legioniści.com website introduced the fans of the Polish champion to the staffing situation of Marek Gołębiewski’s team. Certainly, three players will not go to England. They are Artur Boruc, Maik Nawrocki and Lirim Kastrati. The experienced goalkeeper returned to training with the team after a back injury, but as we read, the coaching staff plans his return to the league match with Jagiellonia Białystok. In the match against Leicester Cezary Miszta is to stand between the posts again.
Maik Nawrocki has not yet returned to his full strength, who suffered a hamstring injury in the match against Piast Gliwice (1: 4). His return is planned for the beginning of December and the match in the Polish Cup with Motor Lublin. Lirim Kastrati, on the other hand, was injured in training last week. The Kosovar has a problem with the ankle and he will also be missing in the match against Leicester.
The match between Leicester City and Legia Warszawa is scheduled to start at 9:00 PM. Live coverage on Sport.pl and the Sport.pl LIVE mobile application.
