Sheriff vs Legia: Preview & Prediction
Sheriff from what I saw of this Sheriff’s team, I am not much surprised to be honest. I see a relatively weak team without great solutions.
It is certain that they dominate the Moldovan football, but we all know that it is a weak championship. Sheriff played the previous qualifier of the Champions in which they were separated by the Qarabag where they deserved to leave the scene.
In this Europa League they managed to tie surprisingly in Légia when it was not really expected.
Légia even scored late in the 76th minute and in an organized attack the Moldovan made the tie being thus in advantage in this tie, although there is condition.
Note that in the previous tie against Qarabag were also draw to zero in Azerbaijan and then at home in the second hand ended up losing the game.
Légia Warsaw The Poles last year had to play in the Champions League where they even remained in the Sporting Group and were responsible for throwing the lions to the last place in the group and so they were to move on to the Europa League.
It turns out that this year went badly, the team has not played much and has not yet entered its usual pace.
They were eliminated in the previous qualifying round of the Champions League by Astana, they lost 3-1 away and at home the victory by 1-0 was insufficient.
They are the only Polish side still in contention in European competitions and are looking to make a presence in the Europa League in the group stage, although at home they have compromised those aspirations by drawing 1 goal at the Sheriff reception.
The result is harmful and may affect that objective. Yet they come from a 1-0 win at Wisla Plock giving good confidence to this game.
This match should be balanced and although Légia continue as a favorite, things can get complicated now, because the Poles drew goals at home and away from home they are not a team with very showy offensive football.
I see this meeting to be somewhat balanced, possibly with Légia trying a little more, but having difficulty in passing the Sheriff’s defensive zone and with the goalless draw prevailing in the first 45 minutes.
It is game and eliminatory to be solved in the 2nd part where the teams will risk more, especially the Légia. It pays well as we have no goals at half-time and is the most likely scenario of the match.
