Legia Warsaw – Spartak Trnava is an unbalanced game really from the qualification of the Champions League competition where Legia Warsaw should secure their presence in the next round just after this home game against the Slovaks from Spartak Trnava. The game will start 21:00 and it will take place on Polish Army Stadium in Warsaw, Poland.
Legia Warsaw managed to qualify into this round after a double-win against Cork City from Ireland. The first leg was really balanced but they took the three points home from Ireland and went home with a huge advantage. At home they destroyed their opponents with 3-0 and qualified with 4-0 on aggregate and had an easier opponent in my opinion in this round. They should make the most of the home ground advantage and score as many goals as they can because it will be easier for them in the second leg and they really need that because they are not shining away from home.
Spartak Trnava are here after a much harder game against Zrinjski from the first qualification round. It was a much easier opponent than Legia Warsaw but the still couldn’t take a decisive lead in both games. In the first game they’ve won with 1-0 at home, and after that a drew put them in this stage where they most probably will go home. They aren’t a team with high expectations from this competition but it would be a really big surprise if they make it to the groups. They had a decent preparation stage with 3 draws, 2 wins and 2 losses, but that won’t be enough in this kind of a game.

Legia Warsaw – Spartak Trnava: Prediction
The only direct game played by these two teams was in a friendly back in 2012 where Legia managed to win with 3-1. This will be the same but Spartak Trnava shouldn’t score in the first game away from home. They also struggled in the first game from their Championship against Senica where they’ve lost with 1-0 and that should be a big concern for them. They are struggling in the back and in attack as well not being able to score in many games, but conceding in almost everyone. Legia should end this match-up from the first leg already and take a big lead at home in front of their supportive fans.
