Europa FC vs Legia Warsaw (By: Isaiah)
Europa FC ended up the second in the domestic league last season, with just two points less than the champions Lincoln Red Imps. However, the season was improved for them as they managed to win the title trophy winning 3:0 over Gibraltar United in the finals.
The team already had a preliminary qualifying round winning over Sant Julia from Andora with a 6:2 aggregate result. They suffered 3:2 loss away, but were completely dominant in the second leg winning 4:0 at home.
Of course, this is now completely another level for them and everything except gather more experience will be a success for them. They had some changes in the roster this Summer, but all still at an amateur level.
Legia was in the race for the title till the very last round in Ekstraklasa, but when you don't win in last four rounds at the end of the season - you simply don't deserve to win the title either.
They ended up second with four points less than Piast Gliwice, while the team has started preparations already in the middle of June. They have won over Pribram and Plzen in style, losing to Bragantino and making a 3:3 game against Universitatea Craiova. As the last preparation game, they defeated Pogon Siedlce 6:0 last Saturday.
The team was quite active during the transfer window, selling offensive midfielder Szymanski to Dinamo Moscow, while they have signed midfielders Gvilia from Luzern and Cafu from Metz, offensive Luquinhas from Aves, central back Lewczuk from Bordeaux as more notable players.
The quality difference is huge here. I just hope Legia has learned their lesson in the previous season. They already looked like a side that is moving the ball very well during the pre-season matches and if they show anything similar again, they should come out victorious in a really convincing way.
