THE GAME STARTS!

The match between Leicester and Legia kicks off. 
2:49 PM3 days ago

In moments we start

In a couple of minutes we will start with Leicester City vs Legia, match corresponding to the UEFA Europa League Matchday 5. 
2:41 PM3 days ago

What can we expect?

With their visitors in total disarray, this is the time for the Foxes to strike in Group C as they face a tough trip to Napoli in their final game.

Even if Leicester make a handful of changes, their squad players are more than capable of picking up an aching Legian side that will surely sit back and hope to survive for 90 minutes.

2:35 PM3 days ago

Legia News

Conversely, Legia may revert to the more cautious squad that helped them beat the Foxes in Warsaw, when three defensive midfielders appeared on the starting side.

The visitors will be without the services of Josue, who often plays in a more advanced midfield role, as the former Braga man is due to serve a suspension.

Former Leicester wing Bartosz Kapustka is still out with a knee injury suffered while celebrating a goal during Champions League qualification, and veteran goalkeeper Artur Boruc is yet to overcome a back problem, so he will again be replaced by his deputy Cezary Miszta.

Mahir Emreli scored the winner when these sides last met and was blanked again in a losing cause last weekend, so he should start up front in a likely 3-5-1-1 formation.

2:27 PM3 days ago

News from Leicester!

Facing a potentially pivotal clash, Brendan Rodgers will again be without one of his midfield linchpins, as Youri Tielemans suffered a calf injury just before the international break and has now been ruled out until mid-December.

Wing-back Ricardo Pereira is also a major doubt for Leicester, after he was left out of the squad last weekend having picked up a thigh injury in training. Meanwhile, both Wesley Fofana and James Justin remain sidelined for the medium term.

With a positive result needed, James Maddison or Ayoze Perez may return to the side to add attacking impetus, while Patson Daka has established his Europa League credentials and will be in contention for a start alongside Jamie Vardy or Kelechi Iheanacho.

2:21 PM3 days ago

Here's how Legia are coming!

On that occasion, when Mahir Emreli's stoppage won the home side their second consecutive Europa League victory, then-manager Czeslaw Michniewicz spoke of his delight at sharing a touchline with his counterpart Rodgers, whom he named as a "role model" coach.

However, things have turned spectacularly sour in the intervening period, and Michniewicz was summarily replaced last month by his assistant Marek Golebiewski. A change in the dugout has engendered little positive effect in terms of results however, as Lega has now lost four games in a row - by a cumulative margin of 12 goals to four.

In the midst of that woeful run, the Polish champions were beaten 4-1 by Napoli last time out in Group C, so having started their continental campaign at the height of the summer in the first qualifying round of the Champions League, they will not want to let domestic failings derail their European journey any further.
 

2:20 PM3 days ago

The foxes path

Forced to settle for a draw against Leeds just before the international break, Leicester returned to action with a deflating 3-0 defeat at home to Chelsea last weekend, leaving them languishing 12th in the domestic standings: 15 points from 12 games leaving them closer to the relegation zone than the top-four places they occupied for much of last season.
2:15 PM3 days ago

Here's how Leicester City is coming in!

Since their defeat to Thursday's opponents on matchday two, which left them with just one point from a possible six and in danger of being cut adrift, a minor revival has kept Leicester in the hunt for a place in the Europa League's last 32.
Late last month, the Premier League side went 2-0 down in Moscow just before the halftime interval, seemingly leaving their hopes in tatters, but stand-in striker Patson Daka then took matters into his own hands and struck four times as the game eventually ended 4-3 to the visitors.
Brendan Rodgers then saw his side held at home by the same opponents - who had suffered a league-record 7-1 defeat in the middle - as former Chelsea wing Victor Moses opened the scoring and Leicester's rubbers were saved by an equalizer from Daniel Amartey. The Foxes therefore remain in a perilous position going into the penultimate round, so Rodgers will be hoping the club's unbeaten record at the King Power through five previous Europa League group games will stand them in good stead.

If the FA Cup winners are to continue their journey to the knockout stages in their second consecutive appearance in competition, then a significant improvement in their stuttering league form will be required.
 

2:10 PM3 days ago

The starting eleven is ready!

The starting eleven with which the Foxes will take the field is confirmed. More than just three points are at stake today. 

2:05 PM3 days ago

Context of the game

Separated by just one point and one place in the Group C table, Leicester City welcome Polish champions Legia Warsaw to the King Power Stadium on Thursday for a potentially decisive Europa League encounter.

While Legian would be confirmed in the top two if they win and group rivals Spartak Moscow do not, the Foxes must avoid defeat and hope Napoli miss out if they are to avoid either an early exit or finishing third - which means a demotion to the Conference League.

2:00 PM3 days ago

THE WAIT IS OVER!

The wait is over, the UEFA Europa League action resumes with the duel between Leicester City vs Legia in Group C. If the home team wins, the team from Warsaw will qualify for the next round, while if the visitors win all three points, the group will be much tighter and they will be in the lead.

Watch out for this Legia player:

Mahir Emril has become one of the fundamental pieces that the Legia Warsaw team has, the center forward or sometimes right winger has gone from strength to strength since his arrival in the Warsaw First Division being an undisputed starter and increasing much more and much more his value in the transfer market. At the moment he has played 1,615 minutes with the Legionnaires' team, he has appeared in the starting line-up 26 times and has scored 11 times, he also has 12 assists since he has worn Legia's colors and has only received the yellow card 3 times. Mahir could tip the scales in his team's favor at any moment and give them a place in the next round of the Europa League.

1:40 PM3 days ago

Watch out for this Leicester City player:

City's standard bearer and the team's star scorer, Jamie Vardy will be the one the Wolves' defense will have to watch out for. The 34-year-old center forward has already come a long way in the best league in the world, he has won almost everything with Leicester and has managed to establish himself as one of the idols of the fans, since his debut he has played 393 games as a starter, has broken the net 181 times and has assisted on 78 occasions. With more than 30,000 minutes played, the Sheffield born will be one of the players that could tip the balance in favor of the Foxes at any minute.

1:35 PM3 days ago

Last Legia lineup:

C. Miszta; A. Jedrzejczyk, M. Wieteska, M. Nawrocki; M. Jahnsson, B. Slisz, I. Kharatin, A. Martins, F. Mladenovic; Joshua, M. Emreli.
1:30 PM3 days ago

Last Leicester City lineup:

Schmeichel; Ricardo, Amartey, Söyüncü, Bertrand; Ndidi, Tielemans, Perez, Maddison; Barnes, Vardy.
1:25 PM3 days ago

Background:

Interestingly, the two teams had never met in all of history until two months ago when they met for the first time in the UEFA Europa League. On that occasion, Legia won at home by the narrowest of margins against Leicester City in the second round of the UEFA Europa League group stage. On that occasion, the only goal of the match was scored by Mahir Emril in the 31st minute. 
1:20 PM3 days ago

Refereeing team:

For this match, Craig Pawson will be the central referee, accompanied by Ian Hussin and Scott Ledger as assistants 1 and 2 respectively, and Michael Salisbury will be the fourth referee. In the VAR, referees Michael Oliver and Dan Cook will be in charge of monitoring any dubious play inside the box or that merits a red card.
1:15 PM3 days ago

Looking to secure qualification

The Legionnaires' team is experiencing one of its best moments so far this season, for starters, they are second in the Warsaw First Division with 30 points so far this season and in the UEFA Europa League they are second in the group with 6 points from 2 wins and 2 defeats. Likewise, they have 3 goals scored and 7 goals conceded, which leaves them with a difference of -4, a statistic that leaves a slight disadvantage over their rival who has fewer goals allowed in their goal, in case of winning, the team from Warsaw could be sealing their qualification to the next round of the championship and thus arrive without worries to the last matchday, however, in case of losing they would be putting their qualification at risk.
1:10 PM3 days ago

Win or die

The Leicester team is in trouble that could end in their elimination from the current UEFA Europa League, for starters, they are second to last in Group C with five points from one win, two draws and one defeat in the first round. Likewise, they have scored 7 goals while they have allowed 7 times their goal has been penetrated, resulting in a very even order in the team but that has failed to be reflected in the results achieved. However, the Leicester team is dreaming of getting back into second place overall to aspire to the next round after having drawn against Spartak Moscow in a heartbreaking 1-1 match, although not everything is happiness, since, if they cannot beat Legia, the team from England would be signing their sentence and would be completely eliminated from the competition.

The road to Seville begins

All great moments began in a dream and there are only a few lucky ones who can boast in their lives that they once got to hold Europe in their arms and were named "princes of Europe". Once again, the dreams of 48 teams seeking to engrave their name in eternal glory begin, but to do so, they will have to overcome a long road full of obstacles to reach the main event, Seville, and have the honor of being crowned as the new champions of the old continent. In group "C", Leicester City and Legia will face each other in another duel corresponding to the group stage of the UEFA Europa League. On the one hand, the English team is in third place and at risk of being out of the competition if they do not win, while the visitors will be looking for a win to ensure a place in the next stage.
