Legia Warsaw vs Omonia Nicosia
Champions League Qualification
Date: Wednesday, 26 August 2020
Kick-Off at 19:00 UK/ 20:00 CET
Venue: Stadion Wojska Polskiego (Warsaw).
The team from Poland was dominant in their victory of Northern Ireland champs Linfield. Warsaw had the majority of the ball possession and created 20 goal chances. If they are to replicate a similar performance here, the visitors will have a hard time on Wednesday.
The reigning champions of Cyprus have reached their second round of qualification after putting on a stellar performance in the first game. They had to overcome Ararat Armenia away from home and they did well in both attack and defense. But they have to worry about losing some of their players to suspension. The first game produced a total of 9 yellow cards and a red card for both teams of which Omonia had five yellows. They must expect this upcoming tie to go to extra time as well.

- This will be the first time these two teams will meet in a head to head game.
Legia Warsaw vs Omonia Nicosia: Prediction
The home side has recently won its first game of the domestic season. This was a third consecutive win in all competitions. But the visitors had to settle for a draw at the start of the Cyprus First Division. The Polish side has a home advantage which proved very crucial in their previous qualification match. Also, the visitors had to work hard in their first game to score a goal. Considering the way Legia played theirs, I think they will be victorious in this game too.
I think the home team will have the most of the ball. SO there will be very few chances for the away team to get to the opposition half. Since this is a very important game, we can expect both of them to play defensively also. So I am backing a win for the home team with only one team netting the goals.
