Astana vs Legia Warsaw
Champions League Third qualifying round
Date: Wednesday, 26th July 2017
Kick off at 15:00 UK/ 16:00 CET
Venue: Astana Arena.
Astana just don’t seem to have luck with the draws in the third qualifying rounds of Champions League as they will have a very tough task to go past Legia Warsaw.
Kazakhstani champions showed a great resistance in falling to Celtic (3-2 on aggregate for the Scots) and there are no doubts they will be competitive against Polish champions.
The team led by Bulgarian manager Stanimir Stoilov is cruising towards their fourth league title in the top flight of Kazakhstani football where they are even points clear ahead of the second-placed Kairat after 21 rounds of the competition.
The Blue and Yellows did not have any troubles with Latvian Spartaks Jurmala in the second qualifying round as they claimed a 0-1 win on the road to keep the advantage in the rematch in front of their fans quite comfortably.
Legia, on the other side, announced yet another super strong campaign in the elite football competition in Europe by dispatching Finnish Mariehamn 9-0 over two legs.
However, Jacek Magiera can’t be thrilled with the season opening in the domestic league where Wojskowi took only a single point from matches with Gornik Zabrze and Korona Kielce.
Astana vs Legia Warsaw: Head to head
This is going to be the first ever head to head encounter between the two rivals.
Astana vs Legia Warsaw: Prediction
The Poles are certainly favourites to go through over two legs, but Astana could potentially cause them troubles in the first leg in front of their fans.
Legia showed certain holes at the back at the start of Ekstraklasa and we would not be surprised to see Astana on target on Wednesday.
