Leicester City vs Legia Warsaw prediction

Leicester are in slightly better form compared to Legia Warsaw and they will be favourites to pick up all three points at home.

Brendan Rodgers has a talented squad at his disposal but the players have not been able to perform at a high level consistently this season. It remains to be seen whether the Premier League side can recapture their rhythm and grind out a morale-boosting win here.

Both teams have been conceding freely in recent weeks and a high scoring game is on the cards here.
