This is expected to be an easy outing for Real Madrid as they are firing from all cylinders at the moment. Legia is a side that gives you the impression that they do not even want to try and win football matches. They are in for another potential hammering.
So expect the visiting La Liga side to win by a healthy margin, especially when Ronaldo had found his scoring touch and coming on the back of a hat-trick in the weekend fixture against Alaves.
