Legia Warsaw is going through one of the biggest crises in recent years. The team from Warsaw is doing terrible in the games of PKO Ekstraklasa, where after 13 matches it is in the relegation zone. The current Polish champions will be able to buy the trust of the fans in the next Europa League match. There, however, after a good start, the legionaries have a knife on their throat.
All thanks to the unexpected result in Moscow, where Spartak defeated SSC Napoli for the second time and became the leader of group C. He also pushed Legia to 3rd place (6 points) and Leicester to 4th (5 points).
In Legia’s goal we will see Cezary Miszta, the defensive block will be created by Mattias Johansson, Artur Jędrzejczyk, Mateusz Wieteska and Filip Mladenović. Igor Charatin and Bartosz Slisz are to appear in the second line, and the defense of Brendan Rodgers’ team is to frighten, among others, Ernest Muci, Luquinhas, and Mahir Emreli.
We should see many of the most important players for the Leicester team, albeit with a few exceptions: Jamie Vardy and Harvey Barnes are due to sit on the bench again in the Europa League. In their absence, Patson Daka and Kelechi Iheanacho are to score goals.
Expected lineups for the game Leicester – Legia
Leicester City: Kasper Schmeichel – Daniel Amartey, Caglar Soyuncu, Jonny Evans – Timothy Castagne, Boubakary Soumare, Wilfred Ndidi, Ryan Bertrand – James Maddison – Kelechi Iheanacho, Patson Daka
Legia Warsaw: Cezary Miszta – Mattias Johansson, Artur Jędrzejczyk, Mateusz Wieteska, Filip Mladenović – Bartosz Slisz, Igor Charatin – Ernest Muci, Andre Martins, Luquinhas – Mahir Emreli.
