Legia take on the visitors FC Astana at “Stadion Wojska Polskiego” in the second-leg clash of the Qualification semi-final of the UEFA Champions League 2017/2018. The match will be played in Warsaw on Wednesday, August 2nd. The first-leg game ended with 3:1 scoreline in favour of the side from Astana.
Legia found themselves not ready to the start of a season: the Ekstraklasa’s champion had lost the Polish Super Cup to Arka Gdynia with 1:2 scoreline by penalty shoot-out, afterwards it managed to pick up only one single points in two opening rounds of the elite division after 1:1, 1:3 scorelines, having conceded regularly. The confident trimph over Mariehamn 3:0, 6:0 at the previous stage of the UEFA Champions League qualification were just a matter of the Finnish team’s weakness. In Kazakhstan Legia didn’t deserve the defeat with two-goal margin, but having conceded a goal at the 94th minute of the match, they made their task to promote to the tournament’s next round more complicated.

In their turn, FC Astana come up to the upcoming fight with nine-game unbeaten run covering eight victories and a draw. The Kazakhs didn’t show exciting performance in the Eurocups as they hardly managed to get through the Latvian Spartaks 1:0, 1:1 in last round. In regard to their results at away fields, in 2017 FC Astana recorded three losses, two draws and eight wins in 13 clashes on the road.
Legia are the favourites of the home encounter, however, FC Astana’s squad consists of the solid players who shouldn’t get lost in starting 20 minutes of the away game, but to show sustainable and tough defense at that moment.
Prediction for the match: Under 3.0 scored goals.
