Match background Only this chapter

Legia Warszawa are the early frontrunners in Group C and will look to consolidate their position against Leicester City, who are making their first UEFA competition visit to Poland.

• Legia became the first winners of this season's UEFA Europa League group stage when a late goal from Kosovo international Lirim Kastrati earned them a 1-0 victory at Spartak Moskva. The following day Leicester opened their campaign by drawing 2-2 at home to Napoli, Ayoze Pérez and Harvey Barnes giving the Foxes a 2-0 lead before the visitors drew level and Wilfred Ndidi was sent off for two yellow card offences.

Previous meetings
• While Leicester are new to Polish opposition, Legia have not faced an English club since taking four points off Blackburn Rovers (1-0 h, 0-0 a) in the 1995/96 UEFA Champions League group stage. Their only other pairing was against Manchester United in the 1990/91 European Cup Winners' Cup semi-final, a 1-3 defeat in Warsaw preceding a 1-1 draw at Old Trafford to conclude the club's joint most successful European campaign.

Form guide
Legia
• Champions of Poland in 2020/21 for the second year in a row, fifth time in six seasons and a record-breaking 15th time in all (one more than Górnik Zabrze and Wisła Kraków), Legia finally made it through to the UEFA Europa League group stage this season after four straight eliminations in the competition's qualifying phase, including a play-off defeat at home to Qarabağ last term.

• Czesław Michniewicz's team began this European campaign in the UEFA Champions League first qualifying round, where they defeated Norwegian title holders Bodø/Glimt (3-2 a, 2-0 h), before also knocking out Estonian champions Flora Tallinn (2-1 h, 1-0 a) but then losing to Dinamo Zagreb (1-1 a, 0-1 h). A fifth appearance in the UEFA Europa League group stage was secured, however, with a 4-3 aggregate win (2-2 a, 2-1 h) over last season's quarter-finalists Slavia Praha. Legia have reached the knockout phase on two of their previous four participations, notably as group winners in 2014/15.

• Legia's home record in the UEFA Europa League group stage is W6 D1 L5. They lost all three group games in Warsaw in 2013/14 but won all three the following season.

Leicester
• Leicester booked back-to-back appearances in the UEFA Europa League group stage by winning the FA Cup for the first time in their history – thanks to a 1-0 win in the final against Chelsea. However, in a repeat of the previous season Brendan Rodgers' side just missed out on UEFA Champions League qualification, finishing fifth in the Premier League after spending almost all of the campaign in the top four.

• UEFA Champions League quarter-finalists in 2016/17, the Foxes won their UEFA Europa League group last season on their competition debut, finishing ahead of Braga, AEK Athens and Zorya Luhansk, but were eliminated in the round of 32 by Slavia Praha (0-0 a, 0-2 h).

• The East Midlanders have won only three of their 13 fixtures in UEFA competition outside England (D3 L7), the most impressive of them 3-0 at Club Brugge on their UEFA Champions League debut five seasons ago. Their away record in last season's UEFA Europa League was W1 D2 L1, the sole success on Matchday 2 at AEK Athens (2-1).

Links and trivia
• Bartosz Kapustka joined Legia in 2020 after four seasons as a Leicester player, although he made only four appearances for the Foxes, none in the Premier League.

• Portuguese left-back Yuri Ribeiro joined Legia this summer after two seasons in the English second tier with Leicester's East Midlands rivals Nottingham Forest.

• Legia goalkeeper Artur Boruc played in England for Southampton (2012–14) and Bournemouth (2014–20), saving a penalty for the latter in a 0-0 draw away to Leicester midway through the Foxes' 2015/16 Premier League title-winning season.

• Boruc became the third oldest player to appear in the UEFA Europa League when he started the Matchday 1 encounter at Spartak Moskva aged 41 years and 207 days. The competition record is held by another goalkeeper, Brad Friedel (42 years and 173 days).

• Boruc and Legia team-mate Mattias Johansson are both one game shy of 50 in UEFA club competition.

• The Polish club are one of eight reigning domestic champions competing in the 2021/22 UEFA Europa League group stage, while Leicester are one of six reigning domestic cup winners involved.
