Legia Warsaw vs Real Madrid Predictions

Legia Warsaw couldn’t have dreamed of a worse start to their season. They come into this game sitting down in 6th position in the Poland Ekstraklasa and remain bottom of their Champions League group after defeats in all three of their group matches.

They have started to pick up a bit recently, with their 4-2 win at Korona Kielce giving them back to back league victories for the first time this season and ending a run of eight matches in which they only won once. Six of these eight games ended in defeat as well.

The Champions League group stages have seen them well and truly outclassed. Legia Warsaw opened with a 6-0 hammering at home to Borussia Dortmund and then lost 2-0 at Sporting CP. Real Madrid beat them 5-1 at the Bernebeu last month, so it’s not looking overly promising for them.

The visitors are on absolute fire at the moment as well. They beat Deportivo Alaves 4-1 away from home on Saturday, to make it five victories on the bounce and to extend their unbeaten start to the season to 14 matches.

Real Madrid’s last five matches have seen them score a sensational 24 goals, although they have conceded in every one of these games as well. In fact, Real Madrid haven’t kept a clean sheet in any of their last nine outings in all competitions, so there is hope for Legia Warsaw to find the net.

Cristiano Ronaldo got back on the score-sheet on Saturday as well. He had gone three games without scoring, but managed an emphatic hat trick to get him back on track. He remains the top scorer for Real Madrid despite his injury problems early on in the season, so he’s a surefire favourite for the anytime goalscorer market. Alvaro Morata has been in form as well recently though and has scored five goals in all competitions, so he could be an alternative option at a much better price of 8/13 compared to Ronaldo’s 1/3.

Real Madrid are justifiable and overwhelming favourites for this match, and I don’t think Legia Warsaw have got a hope of getting anything from this game. The hosts have scored in 11 of their last 14 competitive matches though, including one against Real Madrid. We have already discussed Real Madrid’s poor record of clean sheets, which definitely isn’t helped by the absence of Sergio Ramos, Pepe, and Dani Carvahal. Backing a Real Madrid Win and Both Teams to Score at 7/5 looks a very good choice, and I’m going for a 5-1 correct score prediction at huge odds of 18/1.
