Atromitos Prediction – Can Atromitos progress?

Wednesday night’s hosts, Atromitos, appear to have done the hard work in last week’s 0-0 draw away at Legia Warsaw in the 1st leg.

The Greek side now return to home turf where they’ll be seeking to secure their passage into the play-offs of the Europa League.

Atromitos reached this 3rd qualifying round stage of this competition thanks to a previous round victory against Slovakian side, DAC.

A 2-1 win away in Slovakia in the 1st leg set Atromitos up nicely for the return leg to their Stadio Peristeriou where they duly registered a 3-2 win.

An aggregate score line of 5-3 was enough to see the hosts through to this round, and having held Legia Warsaw to a draw on the road, they’ve just got to finish it off here.

Overall form at home in recent times has been sketchy as they’ve recorded wins against Apollon Smirnis, Panathinaikos and the aforementioned DAC.

However, back-to-back defeats to OFI Crete in the league and a friendly loss to Nottingham Forest should ensure full focus for this 2nd leg.

Legia Warsaw Prediction – Can Legia Warsaw still qualify?

Last week’s 0-0 stalemate with Wednesday night’s opponents, Atromitos, became Legia Warsaw’s third draw on the trot.

Previous matches against Finnish club, KuPS (in the previous round of the Europa League) and a Ekstraklasa clash with Slask Wroclaw both ended in 0-0 draws too.

Nevertheless, Legia Warsaw are now unbeaten in their last 5 matches in all competitions which includes a 1-0 aggregate win over KuPS in the Europa League.

In the 1st qualifying round of the competition, Legia Warsaw recorded a 3-0 win on aggregate against Gibraltar outfit, Europa.

And with just 1 defeat out of their last 11 matches overall in all competitions, the visitors will still be hopeful that they can grind out a win in this crucial 2nd leg.

They also bring a 5-match unbeaten run on their travels into this decider, but this consists of 3 draws and 2 wins.

Prior to that, results on the road were very inconsistent and Legia Warsaw have actually managed just 6 away wins from their last 15 matches on their travels.

Switch to their away form in the Europa League and the story gets worse as the visitors are without a win from their last 8 away ties at this level.


Key-Facts – Atromitos v Legia Warsaw

  • Atromitos are unbeaten in their 3 Europa League ties to date this season
  • Legia Warsaw have managed just 6 away wins from their last 15 matches overall
  • Legia Warsaw haven’t won an away tie in the Europa League in their last 8 attempts


Betting Tips Verdict

Atromitos with home advantage should at least avoid defeat against a poor-travelling Legia Warsaw outfit.
