Leicester City vs. Legia Warszawa Match Analysis and Prediction

A decisive match in the Europa League Group C takes place this week as Leicester City welcomes Polish champions Legia. The match schedules for Thursday at the King Power Stadium, with kickoff at 11 pm.

While Legia has already qualified for the UEFA Europa League last 32, Leicester is still battling to finish second in Group C.

Victory against Napoli will seal their place, but defeat coupled with a Spartak defeat would condemn them to third spot and a potentially awkward route into the first knockout round.

Two wins from three games have improved their fortunes, and they were rewarded for those efforts by being handed the toughest possible tie against Thursday.

Leicester has already scored as many goals as they did in their five previous group outings. Still, it is a measure of the contrasting fortunes of the two clubs since their meeting at the King Power Stadium on the opening night three weeks ago.

A 1-0 defeat –Fenerbahce now stands on course to join Thursday among the competition’s four best third-placed teams and qualify for the last 32.

It should prove to be an interesting game, this one then. While Leicester City is struggling in the top flight, Legia needs to start picking up points quickly, or they could find themselves cast away at the wrong end of the Ekstraklasa table quite soon.

Brendan Rodgers will have to wait a little longer before Youri Tielemans is available for selection. The Monaco midfielder suffered a calf injury just before the international break and has been ruled out until mid-December.

The visitors will be without the services of Josue, who often plays in a more advanced midfield role, as the former Braga man must serve a suspension. The dead-ball specialist was dismissed for a second bookable offense during last weekend’s 2-0 home win over Moreirense.
