Legia is on the 2nd line in Group C with six points after four rounds. The team from the capital of Poland chalked up two victories and two defeats. Legia is also in crisis. The Militarians have lost eight matches in a row in Ekstraklasa and Europa League. Legia feels good in European competitions, while in the Polish championship, the current title holders are in the relegation zone. After 13 rounds, the Legionnaires have only nine points and take the 17th place. A month ago, Legia's management said goodbye to head coach Czeslaw Michniewicz and entrusted the team to Marek Golebiewski. He has not yet been able to rectify the situation. In the first five matches under a 41-year-old specialist, Legia only suffered new defeats. The streak of failures continued on November 21 when Legia lost to Gornik Zabrze away (3-2).
On September 30, Legia hosted Leicester City in Matchday 2. The home team surprised everybody by beating the guests from England (1-0). The only goal was scored by Mahir Emreli in the 31st minute. But the Foxes are favorites of the upcoming match. They will play on their native pitch and surpass the visitors in class. Besides, Legia is in disgusting shape. Although the hosts themselves do not shine with results either, the crisis of the Militarians can help them in the upcoming confrontation. But it is unlikely that the Poles will lose with a crushing score. Leicester players, who have scored two goals in four previous games, experience serious problems with conversion. The Legionaries will play deep in defense, which could also lead to a low total in Leicester.
Prediction for the match: Leicester to win and Under 3.5 goals scored
