    On Wednesday night, Legia Warsaw and Omonia Nicosia clash in the Champions League second qualifying round, with both teams eying further progress in Europe’s elite competition.

    Since making their Champions League debut in 2002, Legia Warsaw have become experienced campaigners in the competition. The Polish team failed to qualify last season but recorded a 1-0 win over Northern Irish team Linfield to set up this tie.

    The victory last time out means that Legia have now won five of their last six games in the Champions League while keeping clean sheets in all five of the victories. Their recent games in the competition have been tight, low-scoring affairs, with under 2.5 goals scored in five of their last six Champions League outings.

    Legia have been formidable opponents on home soil in Europe’s elite competition in recent seasons, as the Polish outfit has won five of their last six home matches in the Champions League. The team from the Polish capital have also kept clean sheets in all five of those victories.

    Until this season, Omonia Nicosia had not featured in the Champions League in a decade. This time around, the Cypriot team needed extra-time to see-off Armenian outfit Arabat in the first qualifying round.

    In truth, the visitor's participation in Europe’s elite competition has been sporadic, since their debut campaign in 2001. They have won just three of their 11 matches in the Champions League and the draw over 90 minutes with Arabat means they have failed to win in normal time in three games in this competition.

    Omonia Nicosia have a mixed recent away record in Europe’s elite competition, having won just two of their six away matches in 90 minutes.

    Forebet predicts that Legia Warsaw will book their place in the third qualifying round of the Champions League by recording a victory in a low-scoring match.
