* (odds recorded 2007 GMT August 23rd 2021)


There is a quote of 8/11 on the second leg going above 2.5 goals as well* (odds recorded 2007 GMT August 23rd 2021).

This play off tie has put Legia Warsaw and Slavia Prague together for the first time.

Looking at the overall form of Legia Warsaw in all competitions this season they are at W6 D3 L2.

They have played five home fixtures this season and in three of them failed to score more than one goal.

It’s been one clean sheet from them in those five.

Last season Legia Warsaw were eliminated from the Europa League playoffs by Qarabag.


Slavia Prague Preview – Can Prague finish the job?

Slavia Prague have produced a fairly strong start to their new season, despite slipping from the Champions League qualifiers too.

They lost out 2-1 on aggregate against Ferencvaros in that Champions League Third Qualifying Round tie.

Prague had traded home wins with that opponent.

Overall across all competitions this season Slavia Prague are W5 D1 L1.

The away portion of that record is W3 L1.

So they look as if they carry a threat and are a quote of even money to pick up the win* (odds recorded 2007 GMT August 23rd 2021)

After twice fighting back in that first leg, they will certainly be the happier of the two sides.

But of course, they have to deal with being out on the road in the second leg.

In each of their last three games in all competitions, the Czech club have scored at least two goals.

Slavia Prague were involved in the Europa League group stage last season.

They reached that and took a W4 L2 record from those games and then proceeded to knock out Leicester and Rangers in the knockout stages.

Their season was eventually ended by Arsenal.

But that is a good European record behind them from last season and it suggests that they can get through this.

For a longer play in football betting, the Slavia Prague To Win & BTTS option is at 3/1* (odds recorded 2007 GMT August 23rd 2021).


Legia Warsaw vs Slavia Prague Betting Advice

Slavia Prague do look to be the stronger of the two sides even though they were given a good workout in the first leg.

The away win is worth swinging towards at a quote of even money in the match outright* (odds recorded 2007 GMT August 23rd 2021).

Of the two sides, there has been better form from Prague.


Key Facts – Legia Warsaw vs Slavia Prague Betting Tip

  • Legia Warsaw twice took the lead in the first leg
  • Four of Legia Warsaw’s five home games this season have gone under 2.5 goals
  • Slavia Prague reached the Europa League quarter finals last season


Neither side were particularly convincing in defence in that first leg so we would expect more goals to flow.

Over 2.5 goals looks like a solid betting option, but the 3/1 quote on the away win and both teams to score has bigger appeal* (odds recorded 2007 GMT August 23rd 2021).

There could be plenty of life left in the tie.

But there haven’t been quite enough goals from Legia Warsaw recently at home to lean towards them.
