Legia also played in two qualifying round, knocking out Zrinski Mostar, 1-1, 2-0 and Trencin, 1-0, 0-0. The team is notable for their solid defense that allowed only one goal in four matches. Legia have already played five matches on the road this season, taking two wins, two draws and one defeat.
The match will be the first ever head-to-head between the teams. Irish side appear to be underdogs in this matchup. However, they proved they can surprise in home leg like they did in clash with BATE. The hosts of the match are definitely able to offer a battle to Polish champions and at least avoid thrashing defeat at own turf.
Prediction for the match: Dundalk to win with +1.0 Asian handicap.
