Legia Warsaw vs Rangers
Europa League Qualification
Date: Thursday, 22 August 2019
Kick-off at 19:00 UK / 20:00 CET
Venue: Stadion Wojska Polskiego (Warsaw).
Legia Warszawa settled things for good in the previous round with two unanswered goals in the second leg against Atromitos, after the first, saw them play out a less than exciting stalemate. The hosts have already extended their positive run of form with a narrow 1-0 win over Zaglebie at home and will be looking to make it three games in a row when they welcome the Scottish outfit to their midst on Thursday.
Steven Gerrard’s side, however, are no easy side to brush past and have been turning quite a few heads with their performance back in the domestic league as well as across Europe. The squad knocked out the Danish giants Midtjylland in their last encounter with an emphatic 7-3 aggregate score on the cards.
Rangers will be coming into their maiden clash with the home team on the back of a very impressive five-game winning streak of their own and are more than likely to be too hot to handle for the Legia Warsaw side.

Legia Warsaw vs Rangers Prediction
Despite coming out on top in their last two clashes, it needs saying that the hosts have not been successful in ensuring a consistent winning run of form. The team have picked up just two wins in their last five games on home soil, and not more than thrice in their previous nine.
On the other hand, Rangers have been a force to be reckoned with in their outings and have come out on top convincingly, in four of their last five matchups. The away side have also netted nine goals from their last three trips on the road, and are more than likely to find the back of the net without fail this week as well.
The stellar streak that the visitors are boasting of at the moment certainly leaves no room for doubt, as Rangers are sizing up to be the outright favorite to come out on top.
Out of their last three outings, the Scottish outfit have kept a clean sheet just once. Considering that the Legia Warsaw have been getting their names on the score sheet in their last two games in a row as well, expect goals down each by the end of the ninety minutes and the win to swing in favor of Rangers.
