The game for big money – Legia will stay in the Ekstraklasa?
Legia Warszawa announced financial losses for the previous calendar year. The club has been promoted to the European cups this season, which will certainly help to balance the budget costs, but the disastrous attitude in the league can still have negative consequences. There are less and less fans in the stands at Łazienkowska Street and Dariusz Mioduski has already fired two coaches in the current campaign. Will Legia stay in the Ekstraklasa after the spring round??
History is being written before our eyes
To tell you the truth, in my lifetime I can’t recall a situation in which the main favorite to win the championship has so many problems in the league and realistically fights to stay. For long fragments of the autumn round it seemed to be only a pipe dream, but the relegation of Legia is real and possible, which can be seen from the table.
Legia Warsaw in the autumn round did poorly in front of their own audience. The Military won only 4 out of 9 played matches on the object, which in the previous years was a fortress. Players who regularly place bets on Polish football fields certainly remember that there were seasons in which betting on Legia winning at home was like investing capital with a very quick return. Now those days are gone, as you can see from the statistics. Legia Warszawa won less than half of their home matches, which only shows how difficult the situation is for the current Polish champion.
Legia Warsaw – statistics at home:
4 of 9 matches at Łazienkowska Street in Ekstraklasa ended with a win for Legia.
– In the last league match Legia lost to Radomiak.
– Legia is the fourth worst team in the league in terms of home games.
– Wojskowi won 12 points in front of their own audience.
– Legia Warszawa have a negative balance of goals on their pitch.
The team’s statistics look even worse if we take into account the away numbers. In the current campaign, the Wojseks have played 9 matches away from their home stadium and have recorded as many as 8 defeats. It is a result, about which did not dream even in the darkest dreams fans and players of Legia Warsaw. In the away games classification this team is at the bottom of the table, next to Wisła Płock and Termalica. The only team that hasn’t been able to beat Legia Warsaw on their home field so far is Warta Poznan.
It’s also worth mentioning that they lost 17 goals in 9 away games, which gives an average of 2 goals per 90 minutes away.
Legia – away statistics:
Wojskowi won only one away game in the autumn round of Ekstraklasa.
Legia Warszawa won only 3 points in away matches.
– The Wojseks have not recorded a single away draw in the Ekstraklasa.
Warta Poznan is the only team, which Legia won away from home.
– Legia Warszawa lost as many as 17 goals in 9 away games.
Preview of the spring round
In the spring round Legia Warsaw players must improve their disposition if they realistically think about staying in the Ekstraklasa. Looking at the league table, you can see that the situation of this team is complicated, but the schedule of the upcoming meetings does not look too bad. In the first league match of 2022, the team will play an away game against Zagłębie Lubin. Legia Warsaw won at the end of last year at Łazienkowska Street as much as 4:0. Additionally statistics show that Wojskowi are doing very well on this ground and they won 4 of their previous 5 games.
In the next competition Legia Warszawa will face Warta Poznan in front of their own audience. This will be another key clash in the fight for league existence. Rival number three for the current Polish champion will be Termalica, a team from the relegation zone. As you can see, Legia has three key clashes ahead of them, in which winning a set of points can help the team get out of the relegation zone.
Legia’s first top level clash will not take place until 19 March against Rakow, so there is no doubt that in each of the previous 7 league games this team will be a favourite.
At this point it is also worth mentioning that the players of Legia Warsaw in the spring round will be aiming at winning the Polish Cup. At this moment it is the shortest way for this team to the European cups, which are certainly still in the minds of the players. Legionists in the current campaign performed very well in the Europa League and, despite the fact that did not win promotion to the next round, earned the club a lot of important money. In the next round of the Polish Cup Legia will play on its field with Górnik Łęczna and according to sports betting is the favorite of this clash.
Legia is not in the best situation at the moment, so promotion to the cups and staying there is a necessity not to save money in the summer window.
Mission – Lubin
As I mentioned earlier, the first opponent of Legia Warsaw on the fields of Ekstraklasa will be Zagłębie Lubin. The meeting is scheduled for Friday at 20:30. Both teams met at the end of the autumn round at Łazienkowska Street in an overdue rivalry with 3. lines. The mentioned meeting was postponed due to the participation of Legia in the European cup qualifiers.
Statistics of recent matches between these teams in Lubin clearly favor the visiting team. The Wojsks won in 4 of their last 5 games on this ground. Additionally, they have kept 2 clean sheets during that time. However, you have to keep in the back of your mind the numbers which show that Legia have only won one away game this league season.
Legia Warszawa players played 5 friendly matches during the winter break. It is worth noting that each of these rivalries ended with the victory of this team. Overall, the balance of sparring matches is really solid, as they competed against, among others, Russian Krasnodar and were able to beat this rival. They also left Radomiak Radom beaten, and yet with this team they scored their last defeat on the league fields. Legia lost only one goal in 5 friendly matches and scored at least 2 goals in each of them.
Betcris analysts are favoring Legia Warsaw before the match against Zagłębie Lubin and looking at the form of this team, as well as the situation in the table – I think it’s a good clue!
