Cork City – Legia : Preview & Prediction
Legia Warsaw begins its European season this week, with a trip to the Cork City pitch in the preliminary round. Third in the Polish league last year, just one unit behind the champion, the Legia advance in Ireland with the firm intention to restore its reputation among its supporters. Currently second in the Irish league, the Cork City players find them the most beautiful European competitions twelve years after their last match against the Red Star of Belgrade. Less strong on paper than their Polish counterparts, the men of John Caulfield will have to excel if they do not want to say goodbye to the next round of the Cup with big ears. The meeting promises to be tense for the locals.
The Legia Warsaw has prepared the best before this match: 3 wins in friendly.
Cork City remain on their side in two defeats, one in the Irish league and the other in friendly against Portsmouth (1-4).
The Legia has won 4 of its last 5 Champions League matches.
Failing to shine in pools, the Legia Warsaw has the habit of performing in preliminary rounds of the LDC: 1 single defeat in 10 games of the genre.
Eduardo, Cafu, Rémy, Hlousek … the Legia’s squad seems to have been largely cut to beat Cork City.
Facing a team from Cork largely within its reach, the Legia Warsaw should take a lead before the second leg at this first meeting in Ireland. Our experts in Champions League predictions therefore advise you to bet on 2 in this Champions League match.
