Astana vs Legia Warsaw by Stanioooo
Astana don't have a luck in the draws and their opponent is maybe the hardest one they can hope to face in this round. Astana team led by the Bulgarian coach Stanimir Stoilov made it once to the goup stages of CL, but it looks very hard to imagine they can repeat such a big achievement again. They are strong at home, but this year they don't look that sharp like in their previous seasons, especially in 2015-2016 when they played in CL groups. The main problem for Legia will be the distance they have to travel to reach Astana.
It was really hard for Astana to eliminate the Latvian side Spartaks Jurmala. They won the first leg in Latvia with 1:0, but the match in Astana can produce the big bomb in CL qualifications so far, cause it finished 1:1 and Latvians needed one more goal to eliminate the better Kazakhstan team. Astana are leaders in their domestic league which is not a big surprise where Kairat is their main rival. Now they have really hard task in front of them to eliminate the Polish side of Legia Warsaw.
The Polish team showed superb form after 9:0 on aggregate against Mariehamn(Finland), so their confidence will be really high. They know they are the favourites in this tie and will want to make a good result in Kazakhstan which will give them a chance for easier 2nd leg in Poland. Their attacking power is amazing and I don't think Astana will have a clean sheet today. They were in the CL groups last season with teams like Real Madrid, Borusia Dortmund and Sporting Lisbon and they finished 3rd, although in some of the matches they were humiliated by Borusia and Real with results like 5:1 6:0 and 8:4.
I expect Legia not to lose today against Astana. Maybe the draw is the most expected outcome here but an away win won't surprise me,too.
