Legia Varsovia – Sheriff: Preview & Prediction
Légia Warsaw, the Polish champions last season had in the Champions League where they even remained in the Sporting group and managed to defeat the leoninos and get 3rd place in the group.
This year they were eliminated by Astana in the previous undercard of the Champions League, 3-1 away away defeat and a 1-0 home win was insufficient to reach the Play Offs.
Now they have to fight for a place in the group stage of the Europa League and this game comes in the best phase of the league where they come from 4 wins in the last 5 games. They cross the best phase and players like Guilherme or Nagy have risen in yield.
In this squad Hildeberto Pereira arrived a short time ago, but he still did not have time to claim his place in this group, although he could be an important player in this team.
Sheriff, this Moldovan team does not have much quality and although it is strong in the national context, in the European competitions little or nothing usually does.
Like the Legia of Warsaw, the Sheriff also comes from the previous Elimination of Champions League where they were removed by the Qarabag.
They managed to draw to zero in Azerbaijan in a one-way meeting in which they were lucky not to suffer goals but luck did not last forever and at home they were defeated by 1-2 by the Azerbaijan team.
The objective is to enter the group stage of the Europa League, but it will be a very complicated task, since Legia is superior, has better squad and goes through the best phase of the season after a somewhat troubled start.
Prediction Legia Warsaw vs Sheriff:
Prognosis: For Légia it will be important to continue in European competitions, even if it is not in the Champions League, which would be the aim of the Polish team.
Still in this tie against the Moldovans are much superior and I believe that this superiority ends up being reflected in the encounter.
At the home of Légia I see the Poles take over the match, play more time in the attack and get a good win.
The Sheriff will play alongside and retreated in their midfield and give the Poles initiative. They were lucky in Azerbaijan and they managed to keep zero, but in Poland I do not believe in a second miracle and I am with the Poles to win the match.
