Team News: Legia Warsaw
The Legia Warsaw boss Kosta Runjaić has zero fitness worries at all before this clash owing to a fully healthy squad available for selection.
We are thinking that Wojskowi will probably employ a 3-4-3 formation in the match, utilising Kacper Tobiasz, Radovan Pankov, Steve Kapuadi, Yuri Ribeiro, Pawel Wszolek, Bartosz Slisz, Juergen Elitim, Patryk Kun, Josue, Marc Gual and Ernest Muci.
Team News: Aston Villa
Aston Villa boss Unai Emery has some current player fitness concerns. Emiliano Buendía (Cruciate Ligament Rupture) and Tyrone Mings (Cruciate Ligament Rupture) are not ready for selection.
We believe The Villans seem likely to elect for a 4-2-3-1 formation, settling for Emiliano Martinez, Calum Chambers, Ezri Konsa, Clement Lenglet, Lucas Digne, Boubacar Kamara, Youri Tielemans, Leon Bailey, John McGinn, Nicolo Zaniolo and Jhon Duran.
We’re envisaging that Legia Warsaw will need things to go their way to see themselves scoring against this Aston Villa lineup who we reckon will end up scoring and possibly keep a clean sheet as well.
Our tip is therefore for a highly competitive game with a 0-1 victory for Aston Villa at the end of this one.
