Venue: Polish Army Stadium (Warsaw).
Legia Warsaw impressed in 2016/2017 group stage of Champions League, but were eliminated from the qualifiers by Astana last season.
They got a good head start in the qualifiers this time, but they need to find consistency to avoid a similar fate like last season.
The first round win against defending Irish Champions Cork City came by a 4-0 aggregate win over the two legs. But the Warsaw faithful did loss two competitive matches between the two legs, first the Super Cup fixture against Arka and then the opening league game of the new Polish season against Zaglebie on the weekend.
Spartak Trnava, probably known well for their deep history in Czechoslovakian League. But it took them until last season to win the maiden title in the Slovakian era.
Thus, this is their debut campaign in Champions League and they had to battle hard to get over Bosnian side Zrinjski in the first round. The final aggregate score line stood 2-1, the deciding goal that separate the teams coming in the first leg 1-0 win at Trnava.
