Atromitos hosts Legia Warsaw in the second leg of the Europa League qualification semifinals. The match will be played on Wednesday, August 14th at Peristeri Stadium (Athens)
In the first match in Poland, Atromitos managed to keep a clean sheet. Although Legia dragged the Greeks as it wanted. 28 shots on goal! 14 of them were on target. Atromitos had 3 and 1, respectively. The Poles possessed the ball 66% of the playing time and shot off 16 corner kicks! But despite this overwhelming advantage, the Legionnaires could not score. In Greece, it will be even more difficult to do it.

So, despite the murderous advantage of Legia, it failed to score a goal in the first match. And you shouldn’t be especially surprised if you dig a little deeper. The team has not scored for 3 matches in a row. But it does not concede too. One of the reasons for such indicators is that Legia has no sharp and scoring forward. A Croat Kulenovic is still young. He is only 19 years old. In the last championship, he scored just 4 goals in 21 matches. In the last season, Brazilian Luquinhas held 17 matches for Portuguese Aves and did not score even once. And he has already appeared 3 times in the lineup of Legia. The fans have not seen goals from him yet. Spaniard Lopez scored 16 goals in 36 matches of the last championship. But it is not so much. And as we see, Lopez alone cannot drag the team.
What should we expect from the upcoming match? A much more cautious game of the Poles. And the same from the Greeks. Neither one nor the other will take risks. Vice versa. Systematically waiting for an opponent’s mistake will be the strategy of both teams. And such a mistake may even not take place. But if finally takes place, the one who will be lucky to score will immediately forget about the attack. And the whole team will defend their goal, which will lead the game to the non-scoring outcome as it was in the first match. No one has any strong forwards. So it’s not worth waiting for the abundance of goals.
Prediction for the match: Under 2.5 goals scored
