My name is Dave, a European football enthusiast, I believe all leagues have their own charms. This is the reason why I have been watching and studying those less popular leagues for 20 years.

The UEFA Europa League returns this weekend and will see Leicester City host Legia Warsaw at the King Power Stadium on Thursday.
Leicester City sit third in the group with five points. They have not delivered their best performances in this competition and are winless in their last 3 games across all competitions. A 2-2 draw against Napoli in their first game was followed by a 1-0 loss to Legia Warsaw. The Foxes then picked up their first win, beating Spartak Moscow 4-3 before drawing 1-1 against the same opponents in their last Europa game.
Currently crashing and burning in defence of their Ekstraklasa title this term, Legia Warszawa have managed to stay in 2nd position, a point clear of Leicester City for this week. Legia Warszawa started the season with 1-0 wins against Moscow and this foe in away and home games respectively. They have since lost by 3 goals to Napoli both home and away as they were beaten 4-1 by Napoli last time out in Group C.
Leicester City have been far from their best in the Europa League so far. However, Legia Warszawa have picked up just one win in their last nine games across all competitions. Judging by recent form, the hosts should pick up three points on Thursday.
Leicester City to Win
Final Results: 2-0, 2-1
