In this upcoming encounter, Leicester are easily the favorites. They are a top-performing team from the English Premier League, pitted against a team from the much inferior Polish top flight – Legia Warsaw. The Foxes will have to keep performing, if they are to keep the top-most spot in sights. Napoli have been on a roll this season, and they have shown no indication as to having a dip in form anytime soon.
Legia Warsaw vs Leicester is scheduled for a 6.45pm ETC kick-off on Thursday, September 30, 2021.
The match will take place at Polish Army Stadium.
Legia, meanwhile, have ex-Leicester man Bartosz Kapustka out for a considerable period of time with a knee injury sustained when celebrating a goal during Champions League qualifying. Furthermore, the hosts have concerns over former Celtic goalkeeper Artur Boruc (back), as well as Mattias Johansson and Brazilian winger Luquinhas (thigh) ahead of the game. Johansson has just returned to training after injury and was not risked at the weekend, while veteran stopper Boruc should again be replaced by his deputy Cezary Miszta.
Leicester manager Brendan Rodgers will prepare for the trip to Warsaw without Wilfred Ndidi, as his midfield lynchpin must serve a suspension due to being sent off against Napoli. Long-term absentees James Justin and Wesley Fofana are also left at home, but the Foxes should otherwise have a full hand from which to choose. Therefore, Timothy Castagne and James Maddison are set for recalls, while up front, Patson Daka and Ayoze Perez could also be drafted into the starting XI.
Legia Warsaw — Artur Boruc; Artur Jedrzejczyk, Mateusz Wieteska, Maik Nawrocki, Filip Mladenovic; Bartosz Slisz, Andre Martins, Josué; Lirim Kastrati, Mahir Emreli, Josue.
Leicester— Kasper Schmeichel; Timothy Castagne, Jonny Evans, Jannik Vestergaard, Ryan Bertrand; Youri Tielemans, Ayoze Perez, Boubakary Soumare; Harvey Barnes, Kelechi Iheanacho, Patson Daka.
Legia Warsaw: 16/5
Legia's positive start to the campaign may come to a swift end, as they clearly have defensive issues at the moment. However, they gave a stern test of going up against a significantly stronger Leicester City side. We predict the Foxes will pick up all three points and get their season up and running. Legia Warszawa 1-3 Leicester City.
