Rangers vs Legia
Europa League Qualification
Date: Thursday, 29 August 2019
Kick-Off at 19:45 UK / 20:45 CET
Venue: Ibrox Stadium (Glasgow).
The Scottish runner-ups will host Legia Warszawa in the return leg of the Europa League Playoffs after a goal-less draw in the Polish capital.
Surely the Gers would feel better with a stalemate with goals, but this result is positive nonetheless considering Legia came close to break the deadlock through Marko Vesovic, but Allan McGregor was at the top of his game.
The Rangers eased past St. Joseph’s, Progres Niederkorn and Midtjylland in the previous rounds and scored 11 goals at home in the process.
As for Legia – one thing stands out in their European journey thus far. They have played three 0-0 draws against teams they were supposed to beat comfortably – against Europa (a), KuPS (a) and Atromitos at home. The goal-less draw against Rangers was their fourth in this Qualifiers, fifth in the season including the game against Slask in the Polish Ekstraklasa.

Last week’s game in Warsaw was their first ever clash.
Rangers vs Legia: Prediction
The Gers are looking fantastic at the moment. Steven Gerrard’s men have scored seven goals in two-legged tie against a tricky Danish side and now they’re favorites to progress at Ibrox. Alfredo Morelos has scored five goals in Europa League Qualifiers and bagged brace vs Hibs.
Legia are struggling to create chances and score goals this season and strangely enough, their top striker has lost his place in the starting eleven. Most of their opportunities in the 1st leg came after set-pieces, bar couple of attempts from Gvilia and Vesovic.
