Legion - Spartak. Tips, odds (09/12/2021) - Super Express


In the last group match in the Europa League, Legia Warsaw will play Spartak Moscow. Meeting on Thursday, December 9, at 6:45 p.m. Preview, tips, betting odds, trivia and statistics.

For Legia, this is a match for everything. The win over Spartak will give her promotion to at least the 1/16 finals of the Europa League. There is no chance of taking 1st place, because they have a worse record of direct matches against Leicester and Napoli. The Polish champions after 5 matches (2-3-0) are in 4th place with 6 points scored in the first 2 matches, won 1:0 - against Spartak away and Leicester at home.

Spartak is also dependent on himself. A win could put them 1st in the table provided Leicester don't beat Napoli. In the case of a draw with Legia and a draw in Naples, it will take 2nd place. The worst solution from Spartak's point of view is a draw in Warsaw and Napoli's win against the Foxes – then Spartak finishes the struggle in 3rd place and in the spring it plays in the knockout stage of the Europa Conference League.

Legia plays badly in the league, lost 11 out of 15 matches in PKO Ekstraklasa, is in the relegation zone. They have lost their last 3 matches in the Europa League. Scored 4 goals in LE, conceded 10 goals - all in the last 3 matches.

In Legia's matches in the LE, 14 goals were scored, in Spartak's matches by 4 more. The Russian team did not lose on the road, they beat Napoli (3:2) and drew with Leicester (1:1). In the league, Spartak is in 9th place, won only 1 of the last 5 matches, in the last round they beat Akhmat Grozny (2: 1), despite the fact that from the 32nd minute he played with ten men after the red card of Alexander Sobolev.

For Legia and Spartak, it will be the 6th clash in European cups. In 1995, in the group stage of the Champions League, the Russians were twice better - 1:0 in Warsaw and 2:1 in Moscow. In 2011, in qualifying for the Europa League, it was 2:2 in Warsaw, and 3:2 in Moscow for Legia. In the first round of the current season, the legionnaires won 1:0 in Moscow after Lirim Kastrati's goal in added time.

For both teams it's a match for everything, they probably won't calculate, they will play for the win. Legia coach Marek Gołębiewski announced that he wanted the team to have an offensive attitude. Spartak did not score a goal in only one match, against Legia at home, although there were plenty of opportunities. We bet that both teams will score in this match.
