Leicester will surely strive to get the victory and The Foxes will surely be active on the offense - a narrow victory probably won't be a positive result for them. Legia is unlikely to keep a clean sheet, but The Army Men are scoring regularly, so the should be able to find their chance and to convert it into a goal.
Our second bet is on both teams to score
