Leicester is in ninth place in the Premier League and is confident of winning its Europa League Group G matches. The Foxes won a shootout against Fenerbahce to advance from the group stage. After playing against Legia Warsaw in Poland, Leicester heads to Manchester City for a much-needed European opportunity.
Legia Warsaw had beaten Leicester in the group stage of the Europa League in 2015, when English sides were ineligible to play in Europe due to the English Football Association’s decision that said the English Premier League clubs were in contravention of European transfer rules. This time around, the EFL allowed Leicester and all English teams to participate in Europe. Legia Warsaw is led by Slaven Bilic, who made a name for himself as a manager with West Ham United.
Legia Warsaw is expected to put up a strong defense in the derby and hold Leicester to a draw. Salomon Rondon and Jamie Vardy will be able to capitalize on their counter-attacks in order to break through Legia Warsaw’s defense. The result of the match will determine Leicester’s position in Group G. Leicester could win or draw against Legia.
