On Thursday, Legia Warsaw can secure the promotion to the 1/16 finals of the Europa League and supporters are hoping for a large turnout in the stands of the Pepsi Arena. In order to mobilize supporters for the game against Metalist Kharkiv they initiated “#WszyscyNaMetalist” on social media websites.
On Wednesday morning, the counter on the twitter account of Legia Warsaw showed more than 20,000 occupied seats. This would be one of the best results in terms of attendance. Only the games against KSC Lokeren (21.5 thous.), Celtic Glasgow (22.2 thous.) and Lech Poznan (29.5 thous.) saw more people in the stadium.
Fans who come to Łazienkowska may be witnessing the promotion of their stars. Henning Berg’s team leads the table of Group L with 9 points out of 3 games and will seal promotion if they win and if Lokeren does not beat Trabzonspor. Legia can also achieve this goal in case of a tie, but the Belgians have to lose.
Legia won the first game against Metalist in Kyiv by 1:0.
Kick off is at 21:05 and should you not be able to make it to the stadium, you can also watch the game live on television on C+ Sport (Poland) or Kanal Futbol 1 (Ukraine).
