UEFA Europa League: Legia Warsaw vs Napoli live
Legia Warsaw will host Napoli today at 19:45 (SAST) at Polish Army Stadium in their return match after a devastating loss to the visitors in the Europa. Napoli defeated the host team 3-0 on matchday 3 and will be looking to win again today. The host team will be expected to up their game because their lead in Group C will be jeopardized if they lose tonight.
Legia have had a good start in the Europa League, winning against Leicester and Spartak, but their loss to Napoli has put them in a difficult situation, and a loss tonight will not help them. To win tonight, the Polish team would need to be consistent and improve their attacking front. They currently lead Group C with 6 points.
Napoli will face the hosts again after defeating them on matchday 3. The Italian side have had a successful season in Serie A but have not performed well in the Europa League. They won their first game at home when they defeated Legia and a similar performance is expected today because their group is tough and losing a point will be a disadvantage. Despite their underperformance in this competition, Napoli are a strong team that should not be underestimated.
Legia have lost all three meetings with Napoli. Their first meeting in this season’s Europa competition resulted in a 3-0 loss for Legia.
Napoli are in good form in their domestic league but have had a roller coaster ride in the Europa League. However, with Legia not winning any of their three meetings against Napoli, a win for the Italian side could be on the cards.
Legia Warsaw XI: Miszta, Wieteska,Johansson, Mladenovic, Jedrzejcyk, Ribeiro, Josue, Slisz, Luquinhas, Kharatin, Emerli.
Napoli XI: Meret, Di Lorenzo, Rrahmani, Koulibaly, Juan, Demme, Anguissa, Elmas, Zirlinski, Petagna, Lozano.
