On July 11, at 19:30, FC receives the Warsaw Legion in the first leg of the Preliminary Round 1 of the UEFA Europa League. The Poles are highly favored in front of the Gibraltar club, which has 12.00 to win a victory Thursday night. The legion has a 1.20 share, one with high chances of success.
Europa FC has already gone through pre-qualifying matches, managing to eliminate the Saint Julia Andorra after 2-3 in away and 4-0 on home ground. Qualification was passed in the second half of the return, in front of the 1000 spectators present on Victoria Stadium. Football in Gibraltar is far from being at a high level, and the Legia should impose itself without too much trouble.
Legia played friendly on this summer and managed to win the duels with Pribram (5-0), Plzen (3-0) and Pogon Siedlce (6-0), also drawing with Craiova University (3-3) after a spectacular game. Prepared by Interim Aleksandar Vuković, Legia finished second in the previous edition of the championship and has a clear goal: qualification in the UEFA Europa League.
With valuable players like Jodlowiec, Gvilia, Rocha, Agra, Martins, Astiz or Remy, the white-green players will not underestimate their opponent and will certainly practice an offensive game in Gibraltar. Anything other than a guest victory would be a great surprise in this unbalanced meeting. Probably the level difference will be evident in the first 45 minutes of the game.
PREDICTION: Over 2,5 goals @ 1,40
