Legia Warszaw have been unconvincing in Europe and Leicester have drawn regularly.

Legia Warszaw lost 3-2 against Rakow Czestochowa on Saturday, ending their three-match winning streak in all competitions.

Czesław Michniewicz’s trailed 1-0 before Mahir Emreli equalised before half time. Warszaw conceded two quickfire goals early in the second period before Ihor Kharatin pulled one back late on. 

The Ekstraklasa champions previously beat Spartak Moscow 1-0 in the Europa League with Lirim Kastrati netting the game winner in injury time. Back-to-back 3-1 domestic wins followed against Gornik Leczna and Wigry Suwalki. 

Midfielder Bartosz Kapustka is unavailable against Leicester with an injury. 

Leicester drew 2-2 against Burnley last time out. Brendan Rodgers’ side dominated with 22 shots and 68% possession but they trailed twice. A Jamie Vardy brace either side of half time earned the Foxes a point. 

Leicester are winless in four of their last five in all competitions. Losses to Man City and Brighton came either side of a 2-2 draw with Napoli in the Europa League. The Foxes' only recent victory was a 2-0 away win at Championship side Millwall in the League Cup.

Centre back Jonny Evans was on the bench against Burnley and he could return to the starting XI. Defenders James Justin and Wesley Fofana are ruled out through injury while Vardy will be rested.

Verdict

Warszaw have struggled in European competition in recent years and Leicester are on a poor winless run. I am backing a 1-1 draw in Poland.
