The second leg of Champions League qualification tie between Flora Tallin and Legia Warsaw is evenly balanced, but our analysts are backing the Polish champions to hold the nerve and progress to the next round.
The first leg has been very close and Legia needed a late goal in the injury time to bag the 2-1 win. It ended up as a heartbreak for Flora, who matched the much-experienced opponent in every aspect of the game.
Tuesday’s penultimate tie could go either way, but Legia Warsaw are bookies’ favourite and it remained to be seen if the Estonians can make home advantage count to mount a big upset.
The team from Tallin defeated Maltese side Hibernians in the previous round with a solid 3-0 win in the return leg after settling for 1-1 draw in the first leg.
