Polish side Legia Warszawa look to prevail in this week's UEFA Champions League qualifying round fixture against Northern Ireland's Linfield. It's the first of a potential three qualifying rounds, after which a final two-legged play-off will take place next month. Who will emerge victorious in this intriguing clash?

Legia Warszawa vs Linfield Betting Tips

Legia Warsaw warmed up in emphatic fashion for this encounter with a 6-1 domestic Cup thrashing against GKS Belchatow last Friday.

Maciej Rosolek, who is still only 18-years-old, stole the show with a well-taken hat-trick in the number ten role. There were also goals from winger Pawel Wszolek and fullback Filip Mladenovic, after Michal Pawlik's own goal made it 3-1 before half-time.

It'd make sense for head coach Aleksandar Vukovic not to tinker too much with his team selection here. Although playing against second-tier opposition, they cruised to victory quite comfortably and were afforded the luxury of resting players too.

That recovery time could prove key, considering Linfield played a day later and lost against Championship side Stoke City. Josh Tymon's strike shortly after the half-hour mark was all the Potters needed in a game packed with substitutions for both sides.

They were 2-0 winners against ten-man SP Tre Fiori on August 8, before their proposed clash with Kosovan side FC Drita was cancelled three days later.

Having received a bye in that preliminary round, they face a significant step-up in competition, but haven't played much competitive football recently. That could prove a blessing in disguise for a Linfield side with nothing to lose by taking the game to their opponents here.

Legia Warszawa vs Linfield Correct Score Predictions

As this is a one-legged tie and Linfield are, as aforementioned, lacking real match sharpness – it's tough to back them here. Legia Warsaw got through three qualifying rounds in last season's Europa League, before falling at the final hurdle against Rangers.

They'll be eager to avoid a similar fate – with no European competition – for the 2020-21 campaign. For that reason, I'm predicting a narrow home victory in this one.
