Europa FC from Gibraltar made it into the preliminary rounds of Europa League qualification by finishing 2nd behind record champions Lincoln Red Imps FC. They then defeated Sant Julia from Andorra 6-3 over two legs to make it to this stage of the competition. They have participated in European qualification in every year since 2014/15 when Gibraltar teams were included in UEFA competitions, but haven’t made it into the group stages yet.
Legia Warsaw is one of the most successful Polish clubs having won 13 leagues titles including 3 of the last 5. They have a decent European history with their peak coming in 1970 when they made it to the semifinals of the Champions League. Legia made it to this qualification stage by finishing 2nd last season and will want to progress to the group stages after failing to do so the previous two seasons.
Europa FC will come into the game buoyed by their 4-0 win in the 2nd Leg against Sant Julia in the last round but will face a much tougher task against the superior Legia Warsaw. They will hope to use their home advantage to nick a narrow victory.
Legia on the other hand have not played any competitive matches yet, playing 5 friendlies with a record of 3 wins, 1 draw and 1 loss, scoring 20 and conceding 4. However they will back themselves as the stronger team and will hope to get at least an away goal if not a win to take back to Poland.
On the basis of Legia Warsaw’s superior team and good scoring record in the 5 friendlies, we predict a victory for Legia, 3-1 will conclude our football tips for this game.
